Lubrication and Maintenance

Planter center section is constructed around a steel tubular frame with four wear pad assemblies riding against a
stainless steel clad center post. Two wear pads are held by a pad holder and locked in place by ¾" adjusting bolts and
hex jam nuts. Inspect pads for wear and adjustment annually to ensure center section is stabilized and planter tracks
properly. Pads should make full light contact with center post when properly adjusted. Too much preload on pads will
cause hydraulic lift pressure to be higher than necessary or will not allow planter to raise when loaded.

1. Position planter on a level surface and place in raised field position.

NOTE: Replace wear pad when worn to less than .3 cm. See “Pad Replacement” steps on next page.

2. Visually check four upper wear pads. Each wear pad should lightly contact stainless steel clad center post.

3. Place planter in raised transport position, install all safety lockups and visually check four lower wear pads for light


4. Remove lockup and lower planter to field operation position. Loosen cap mounting nuts to allow wear pad

adjustment. Loosen hex jam nuts as needed.

IMPORTANT: Cap mounting nuts MUST be loosened before adjusting wear pads.

5. Tighten pad adjusting bolts, back off, and then torque wear pads to 10 ft-lb (13.6 N-m). Hold adjusting bolt from

turning and torque hex jam nuts to 200 ft-lb (271.1 N-m).

6. Operate to full height on post and recheck for zero clearance.



Over tightening wear pads will cause premature wear and excessive
hydraulic lift pressures. Check wear pad type when replacing or
adjusting. Torque wear pads to 10 ft-lb (13.6 N-m). Do not over tighten
wear pads.
