OPERATION PRECAUTIONS

STOP

Read this before using the Yetter product.

- MACHINE OPERATION

IMPORTANT: failure to properly set the planter frame height and levelness can result in less than successful operation of the planter and the Yetter product and may result in damaged equipment. All operators should read and thoroughly understand the instructions given prior to using the Yetter product.

NOTE: DO NOT use this product if the planter is not adjusted properly!

Leveling the planter:

With the planter lowered to proper operating height (Usually 20”-22”). Read the planter operator’s manual for recommended setting. Check to be sure the toolbar and row unit parallel arms are level fore and aft. Recheck when the planter is in the field and has been fully loaded with seed, fertilizer, granular chemicals, etc. Also, a field check with a bubble level on the frame should be made of the hitch height to ensure level operation front to back.

It is important for the planter to operate level laterally. Tire pressure must be maintained at pressures specified by the manufacturer.

Field and actual planting conditions change and will dictate planter frame heights. You must ensure that the row unit parallel arms are approximately parallel with the ground.

IMPORTANT: For proper operation of the planter attachments and row units, it is imperative that the planter toolbars and row unit parallel arms be level side-to-side and front-to-rear. The toolbar frame should operate at a 20”-22” height from the planting surface. Check the manufacturer’s operator’s manual for instructions on how to adjust the frame height and levelness.
