Kinze 3500 Lift and Rotate Planter Rev. 7/14 User Manual
RAISED FIELD POSITION
Row units raise approximately 14 inches and toolbar approximately 40 inches off ground. This position is used in
making turns or passing over waterways during field operation.
Install safety/stroke limiter pin above frame assembly to make contact with stroke limiter valve. Secure with hairpin
RAISED TRANSPORT POSITION
Planter raises high enough to permit row units to clear transport wheels as planter is rotated.
1. Remove hairpin clip and safety lockup pin.
2. Raise planter until lift cylinder is fully extended.

HYDRAULIC OPERATION (CONTINUED)
EDGEVAC FAN MOTOR AND VALVE BLOCK ASSEMBLY (If equipped)
Hydraulically operated motor requires maximum flow rate of 13 GPM @ 2000 PSI to operate properly. It must be
connected to a zero pressure case drain and connected to the correct pressure and return SCV
’s or PTO fittings.
A pressure relief valve in the valve block assembly prevents build up of oil pressure over 35 PSI in case drain line
when vacuum fan motor is in operation. This valve vents oil outside of valve block through a drain hole in the aluminum
valve block. This can occur whenever the case drain is improperly connected or motor circuit pressure is too high.
See “Hydraulic Diagram - Vacuum Fan Motor System” in Lubrication and Maintenance section.
The valve block also contains a check valve that prevents vacuum fan from operating in wrong direction if pressure is
applied to of motor return side and allows fan to coast to a stop when tractor hydraulic control is returned to neutral.
NOTE: Fan turns at a reduced speed if reverse pressure is applied.
