Planter Mounted

Postby Clemsonfor » Thu Jun 03, 2021 9:00 am

I finially got around to mounting the planter. Never done it before or had it shown to me. Looking at it and watching videos of them in use , between that and the PDF I got it figured out. Had to modify a few things Including the throw out rod I got here from another member awhile back. Had to bed it a bit to clear the hopper. Which still wasn't enough so I ended up finding new boots and used nuts as spacers to push it closer to the tractor to clear the hopper. Scratched my head with the chain routing. Figured out a way to rout it that works. It seems like I'm missing a few links to go the intended path?
When I got it on I went and just dragged it across the ground to see if it feed the seed out. It did but I could hear the gears or something slipping. I looked. The base gears were not meshing tightly and would slip every so often. I looked at it and decided I could use some washers and spacers to shim that shaft of the verticle gear inward horizontally so that it would mesh tighter. In my yard test it works now.

Now to go plant a play garden in the area I have been prepping the last few weeks.

We need rain here bad. We have almost powder for dirt.

I will post a pic. I just need to go in and shrink it unbelievably small so this forum will accept it.

It’s hard for me to see but I think that idler gear (may not be correct name) should maybe be on top of the chain.

#1) I believe your right about the gear (sprocket).

#2) If you click on the picture it will open with better detail, and you can zoom in!

Looking good! Looks like you have the duplex hopper.
I hope you have a lot of seed plates!

Question........ What is a "play garden"?
Whatcha going to plant?

I pray that you get some of that rain you need!

Sensible rain! Goldielocks rain ;), not too much, and not too little!

I have swapped the axle drive chain in a different position from that pic. Still not right per diagram but better. I just have it loose without a spring right now.

Normal to modify the throw out rod for a duplex hopper. Have to bend it way out of shape. Lol

I bent it a little. Looks like more to original shape. But I ended up useing longer bolts, mounting the plate on the back side of the lift arm and useing nuts to space it away from it a little more. I will have to get a picture of it. It clears by a half inch or inch .

Unfortunately I only have the plates in this hopper, and whatever ones are in the other hopper that I have as well. Didn't even look at them.

I did get a little rain early this morning. Enough to just barely wet the ground. I don't think it was enough though. Not sure how deep it even will soak in.
