Machine Operation

Marker hydraulic system includes two flow control valves. One
flow control valve sets lowering speed and one sets raising
speed of both markers. Flow controls determine amount of oil
flow restriction through valves, varying marker travel speed.

Loosen jam nut and turn control clockwise, or IN to slow travel
speed. Turn counterclockwise, or OUT to increase travel speed.
Tighten jam nut after adjustments are complete.

NOTE: Tractors with flow control valves. Make row marker
speed adjustment with tractor flow controls in maximum
position. After row marker speed is set, adjust tractor flow
controls to allow hydraulic control to stay in detent during
marker raise or lower cycle.

NOTE: Hydraulics operate slowly when oil is cold. Make all adjustments with oil warm.

NOTE: On a tractor where oil flow cannot be controlled, tractor flow rate may be greater than rate marker
cylinder can accept. Hold tractor hydraulic control lever until cylinder reaches end of its stroke. This occurs
most often on tractors with an open center hydraulic system.


Excessive row marker travel speed can damage row markers.
Adjust flow controls before row markers are first used.


An Even-Row Push Row Unit Package is available to add one
additional push row unit on outer L.H. side of front toolbar for
use with Solid Row Interplant Package.

NOTE: See ‘‘Row Marker Adjustment’’ for determining
correct length to set row marker assemblies when planting

NOTE: install hitch onto 2-point hitch bar using R.H. hole
If 2-Point Hitch Option is used. A 19 cm offset mount is
