Machine Operation

Two flow control valves determine amount of oil flow restriction controlling row marker travel speeds. One flow control
valve controls lowering speed and one controls raising speed of both markers.

NOTE 1: Hydraulics operate slowly when oil is cold. Make all adjustments with oil warm.

NOTE 2: On a tractor where oil flow cannot be controlled, tractor flow rate may be greater than
rate marker cylinder can accept. Hold tractor hydraulic control lever until cylinder reaches end of
its stroke. This occurs most often on tractors with an open center hydraulic system.

NOTE 3: On tractors with a closed center hydraulic system, set hydraulic flow control so detent
functions properly.

1. Loosen jam nut and turn control clockwise (IN) to slow speed or counterclockwise (OUT) to increase speed.

2. Tighten jam nut after adjustments are made.

Excessive row marker travel speed can damage row markers.
Adjust flow controls before row markers are first used.
