SAFETY

A brief description of signal words that may be used in this manual:

CAUTION: Used as a general reminder of good safety practices or to direct attention to unsafe practices.

WARNING: Denotes a specific potential hazard.

DANGER: Denotes the most serious specific potential hazard.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

You can make your farm a safer place to live and work if you observe the safety precautions given. Study these precautions carefully and insist that those working with you and for you follow them.

Finally, remember this: an accident is usually caused by someone’s carelessness, neglect or oversight.

WARNING

Never clean, lubricate or adjust a machine that is in motion. Always lower or block the implement before performing service.

If the machine must be serviced in the raised position, jack or block it up to prevent it from accidentally falling and injuring someone.

Do not allow riders on the tractor or implement.

Use speeds and caution dictated by the terrain being traversed. Do not operate on any slope steep enough to cause tipping or loss of control.

Be sure all personnel are clear of the immediate area before operating.

Read and understand the operator’s manual and require all other persons who will operate the equipment to do the same.

Be familiar with all tractors and implement controls and be prepared to stop engine and implements quickly in an emergency.

CAUTION

Consult your implement and tractor operator’s manual for correct and safe operating practices.

Beware of towed implement width and allow safe clearance.

This product contains pressurized lines and bags, rotating parts, high temperature parts, and sharp edges. Use extreme caution when working with each condition.

FAILURE TO HEED MAY RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.

INTRODUCTION

The Yetter 2940-106 Hydraulic Air Compressor converts hydraulic power into compressed air. Yetter Hydraulic Compressor units are durably constructed and designed for easy integration to operate the Yetter 2940 Air Adjust System. IF USING THIS COMPRESSOR TO SUPPLY AIR

TO OPERATE ANOTHER SYSTEM, INSTALL A REGULATOR PRIOR TO AIR ENTERING THAT SYSTEM WITH PROPER REGULATED AIR SETTINGS RECOMMENDED BY OEM PRODUCT.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:

-The 2940-106 Hydraulic Air Compressor requires 4 gallons per minute maximum hydraulic flow to operate.

-Lubrication of the pump requires a Grade 111 synthetic or a PAO synthetic compressor oil. THE PUMP IS SHIPPED EMPTY AND NEEDS OIL BEFORE OPERATING!!!

-Hydraulic oil flow is required to operate the 2940-106 hydraulic compressor’s hydraulic motor. Different variables will determine the best way to connect into a hydraulic circuit to power the hydraulic motor. Connecting directly to SCV, teeing into the planter frame

lift/lowering circuit, or teeing into the bulk tank blower circuit are ways of powering the compressor. Check OEM tractor and planter manual for hydraulic gpm output to make sure an adequate source is selected.

-Case Drain connection is required to carry the motor case internal leakage directly to the tractor hydraulic reservoir (sump) with zero pressure. This oil serves to lubricate and cool motor components not directly exposed to the working oil. It is normal to

have seepage from this fitting when disconnected from the tractor to protect the motor seals from thermal expansion. If the tractor is not equipped with a female flat face case drain coupler, then one must be sourced through a dealer or hydraulic supplier.

BOLT TORQUE

Mounting bolts and hardware

Before operating the Yetter Hydraulic Compressor for the first time, check to be sure that all hardware is tight. Check all hardware again after approximately 50 hours of operation and at the beginning of each planting season.

All hardware used on the Yetter Hydraulic Compressor is Grade 5 unless otherwise noted. Grade 5 cap screws are marked with three radial lines on the head. If hardware must be replaced, be sure to replace it with hardware of equal size, strength and thread type. Refer to the torque values chart when tightening hardware.

Important: Over tightening hardware can cause as much damage as when under tightening. Tightening hardware beyond the recommended range can reduce its shock load capacity.

The chart below is a guide for proper torque. Use it unless a specified torque is called out elsewhere in the manual. Torque is the force you apply to the wrench handle or the cheater bar, times the length of the handle or bar. Use a torque wrench whenever possible.

The following table shows torque in ft. lbs. for coarse thread hardware.

Lubricate all bearings and moving parts as assembled and make certain that they work freely.

WARNING: Never work around the toolbar/implement while in a raised position without using safety lockups.

CAUTION: The Residue manager attachments are very heavy. Pay extra attention to lifting techniques while handling and or maneuvering the opener during assembly. Failure to do so may lead to personal injury.

Hydraulic Fittings Identification Chart

-Due to common threads, mismatching can happen and could result in leaks and pressure loss -Be sure to verify which style and use dash sizes when ordering replacement parts

-NPTF is easily recognizable and looks like regular pipe threads. It is not recommended for hydraulic systems but does exist on some agriculture equipment

-SAE ORB is recommended by the NFPA for optimal leakage control in medium and high pressure hydraulic systems. The male fitting has a straight thread and O-ring. The female port has a straight thread, a machined surface (minimum spotface) and a chamfer to accept the O-ring. The seal takes place by compressing the O-ring in the chamfer. The threads hold the connection mechanically.

-JIC 37 Degree Flare fittings have a 37°cone seat on the female adapter and a 37°flare on the male adapter. This cone seat and flare allows for a complete mechanical seal between the male and female fitting. Teflon tape on threads is not required.

-ORFS (O-Ring Face Seal) adapter fittings use a straight thread and have a machined groove in the face of the male fitting to accept the O-ring. This O-ring is compressed against the flat face of the female fitting for a leak proof connection. ORFS are one of the newest types of hydraulic fittings.
