PLANTER LIFT SYSTEM
Planter lift system consists of six cylinders with one master, one slave, and one lift assist cylinder on each half of
With this master/slave hydraulic lift system, oil is forced into base end of master and lift assist cylinders when tractor
hydraulic lever is moved to raise position. As master cylinder is extended, oil from rod end of master cylinder is forced
into base end of slave cylinder.
Displacement on master cylinder rod end is equal to displacement on slave cylinder base end which causes cylinders
to move at same rate so planter raises and lowers evenly.
NOTE: Planter lift cylinders may get out of phase causing planter to lift unevenly. A valve located
in each master and slave cylinder piston allows the lift system to be rephased when cylinders are
cycled by lowering planter to ground and holding hydraulic lever for 10-30 seconds. Cycle system
until the planter lifts and lowers evenly.
Assist cylinders aid in lifting and supporting the planter in a raised position. Planter will lift evenly and settle evenly if
an assist cylinder is leaking (or if there is a leak in a hose or tractor connection).
