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.


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.


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 tractor and implement controls and be prepared to stop engine and implements quickly in an emergency.


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

Beware of towed implement width and allow safe clearance.




Mounting bolts and hardware

Before operating the Residue Manager 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 Residue Manager 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.






Remove spring locking pin and adjustment pin from the wheel support. Raise or lower the stem and wheel assembly so the teeth of the wheels are in solid contact with the residue and lightly touching the soil.

The function of the row cleaner is to sweep aside residue and not move soil. When using preplant incorporated herbicide, the row cleaner depth should be adjusted to minimize soil disturbance so the cleaner will not reduce the effectiveness of the incorporated herbicide.


1.DO NOT move soil, Residue Managers are designed to move crop residue only.

2.DO NOT operate planter at slow speeds, ground speed affects how aggressive the spoke wheels are; operate at sufficient speed to maintain good residue flow.

3.DO NOT expect 100% of crop residue to be cleared, it is not necessary and would necessitate engaging the soil. The width of path cleared depends on ground conditions, depth setting and ground speed.

4.DO expect to see wheels occasionally quit turning, indicates ideal (shallow) setting which is not moving dirt.
