Squeeze pump rate of liquid fertilizer application is determined by combination of sprockets on squeeze pump drive
and driven shafts. Make sure sprockets are in alignment, sprocket retaining collars are tight, and chain is properly
tensioned is when changing sprocket combinations. Close all shut-off valves when planter sits overnight or for
extended periods of time. It is also important to close tank valves when servicing on pump or hoses.

NOTE: Delivery rate chart in Rate Chart section of this manual provides approximate application
rate only. Delivery varies with temperature and fertilizer.

Discharge manifold must be repositioned rearward when not in use to prevent hose distortion and prolong hose life.
