Row Unit Operation
PNEUMATIC DOWN PRESSURE PACKAGE OPTION
Row unit down pressure can be adjusted on-the-go as field conditions change with pneumatic down pressure option.
A cab-mounted control box adjusts pressure (Older models may have a digital readout). A planter-mounted 12 VDC air
compressor with 3 gallon capacity air tank supplies air for the down pressure system.
Packages include upper and lower air spring mounting castings for pull row units (front and rear air spring mounting
castings for push row units), 150 psi rated air springs, ⅜" O.D. nylon hoses, dual solenoid air valve and stainless steel,
160 psi, 2" liquid-filled gauge and planter wiring harness.
Pneumatic down pressure row unit extension brackets are required in some applications.
