All transmission and drive chains should be lubricated
daily with a high quality chain lubricant. Extreme
operating conditions such as dirt, temperature or
speed may require more frequent lubrication. If a
chain becomes stiff, it should be removed, soaked and
washed in solvent to loosen and remove dirt from the
joints. Then soak the chain in oil so the lubricant can
penetrate between the rollers and bushings.

Lubricate bushings at the frequency indicated.

Using a torque wrench, check each bolt for proper
torque. If bolt is loose, it should be removed and the
bushing inspected for cracks and wear. Replace bushing
if necessary. Only hardened flat washers should be
used. Replace damaged flat washers with proper
part. Torque hardware to 130 ft. lbs.

All wheel bearings should be repacked annually and
checked for wear. This applies to all drive wheels,
transport wheels and marker hubs.                                                  Plug

To check for wear, raise the wheel off the ground.
Check for endplay in the bearings by moving the tire                                                      Plug
side to side. Rotate the tire to check for roughness in
the bearings. If bearings sound rough, the hub should
be removed and the bearings inspected and replaced
if necessary. See Maintenance section.

To repack wheel hubs, follow the procedure outlined
for wheel bearing replacement with the exception that
bearings and bearing cups are reused.

                                                                Check crankcase oil daily and maintain at plug level.

Those parts equipped with grease fittings should be lubricated at the frequency indicated with an SAE multipurpose
grease. Be sure to clean the fitting thoroughly before using grease gun. The frequency of lubrication recommended
is based on normal operating conditions. Severe or unusual conditions may require more frequent attention.

         WARNING: Always install safety lockup devices or lower the planter to the ground before working
         under or around the machine.
