Row Unit Operation

Row unit mounted no till coulters with 1" bubbled, 1" fluted (8 flutes) or ¾" fluted (13 flutes) blades may be used on
pull row units and push row units (¾" fluted shown). Four quick adjustable down force springs are required per row
when using row unit mounted no till coulters. See “Quick Adjustable Down Force Springs Options”.

Align coulter blade in relation to row unit double disc openers. Adjust by loosening four attaching bolts, moving coulter
arm, and tightening four attaching bolts. Coulter blade can be adjusted to one of four ½" incremental settings in the
forked arm. Initial location is the top hole. Move blade as it wears to one of the three lower hole to maintain coulter
blade at or slightly above opener discs as needed. Adjust coulter below depth of double disc opener blades in very
hard soil conditions such as compacted wheel tracks to improve opener penetration and cutting of surface residue.

Check operating depth by setting planter down on a level concrete floor and checking relationship between coulter
blade and row unit opener blade. Make sure planter is level and coulter is square with planter frame and aligned with
row unit disc opener.

NOTE: Torque ⅝" spindle hardware to 120 ft-lb (162.7 N-m).

Style A (Used with Style A row
unit mounted no till coulter)

Coulter mounted residue wheels are designed for use on pull row units and push row units. Row unit extension
brackets are required on the four center pull row units if the planter is equipped with coulter mounted residue wheels.

Style b (Used with Style A row
unit mounted no till coulter)

Residue wheels attach to row unit mounted coulter with two cap screws and sleeves allowing unit to free-float. A
2-position spindle bolt mounting positions wheels interlocked or staggered. Depth adjustment is made with a spring-
loaded cam and pin with 11 positions in ¼" increments. A high point on the cam allows wheels to be locked up.

A weed guard on the inboard side of each wheel helps prevent weed wrap which can cause premature bearing failure.

NOTE: Opening in weed
guard must face down.
