BOLT TORQUE

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. while handling and or maneuvering the opener during assembly. injury.

Pay extra attention to lifting techniques Failure to do so may lead to personal

OPERATION

ROW CLEANER DO’S AND DON’TS

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 (4-6 mph) 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 soil.

5.DO adjust toolbar frame height 20”-22” and drawbar to “level” correctly. Very important to ensure planter opener will follow ground contours properly.

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. Re-check 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.
