8. Hold hydraulic control (to lower planter) to rephase planter
lift cylinders. Time to rephase system may vary due to
tractor hydraulic flow and/or oil temperature. Normally 5 to
20 seconds is adequate to rephase system.

ROTATE/TONGUE switch in
TONGUE and operate hydraulic
control to retract tongue.
Raise planter out of ground when making sharp turns or backing up
or equipment damage may result.
There are two raised positions on planter. Transport position
is when the planter is fully raised. Raised field position is
when planter wing cylinders are fully extended and center lift
cylinders are at mid-stroke. In “raised field position” row units
are approximately 35.5 cm off ground. This position is used in
making turns or passing over waterways during field operation.
An oil bypass solenoid is located on top side of valve blocks on
rear R.H. side of center frame. This solenoid is not energized
in raised field position so wing cylinders cannot bypass oil
preventing planter from raising any higher.
Raised field position
Contacting or coming close to power lines or other high energy
sources will cause death or serious injury. Keep away from power
lines or high energy sources at all times.
Planters are designed to operate in a speed range of 3 to 13 km/h. Higher ground speeds generally cause more variation
in seed spacing. Speeds above 8.8 km/h are typically not recommended. See “Rate Charts”
