Read these instructions carefully to acquaint yourself with the Seed Jet II. Working with unfamiliar equipment can lead to accidents.

Safety shields must always be in place during operation.

Never park the gravity wagon on a steep incline or leave the equipment running unattended.

Never clean, lubricate or adjust a machine that is in motion. Always remove spark plug wire before performing service.

Always replace safety shields after servicing.

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

Be sure the park brake is set before operating.

Do not allow children to operate this equipment.

Do not allow riders on the wagon or pickup.

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.

If operating on public roadways, where legal, be certain all lighting is operating properly and observe all traffic laws.

Attach a slow moving vehicle emblem to the rear of the trailing implement.

Beware of increased stopping distances and control effort when operating with implements attached. Be familiar with all controls and be prepared to stop engine and equipment quickly in an emergency. If seed or seed treatment is dusty or dirty, wear a full-face respirator.




Mounting bolts and hardware

Before operating the 2962 R.U.M.D.D.F.O. 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 2962 R.U.M.D.D.F.O. 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 2962 R.U.M.D.D.F.O. is very heavy. Pay extra attention to lifting techniques hile handling and or maneuvering the opener during assembly. Failure to do so may lead to personal injury.




Read this before using the Yetter product.


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.







Row Unit Mounted Double-Disk Fertilizer openers will perform in conventional, reduced and light no-till conditions but are not recommended for double-crop or tough no-till conditions. The double-disk design limits penetration in no-till or double-crop conditions. Single disk openers are better suited for no-till conditions.
