Re: John Deere 71 Flexi-Planter Manual in reply to farmalljosh, 05-18-2010 19:44:32
Thanks very much for your help. My planter is breaking seed, about every 2nd or 3rd seed...it seems to grind or break. This is with the proper suggested plates for the seed. My population is horrible after. I also need gage wheels I think, since i have trouble keeping consistent depth of the seed opener discs. Any comments? Thanks very much.

Keeping a constant depth should not be difficult, even without gauge wheels. Assuming you have the 2-1/4" toolbar version, the bottom of the bar should be run about 16" above the seed so somewhere around 14-15" above the ground. (I loaned my manual to a friend so cannot look up the proper height for the large rectangular toolbar version.) The depth cams on the units will keep the openers at the proper depth even if the bar moves up and down a little. I run my two row setup without gauge wheels and just set the stop on the hitch control lever to hold the bar at the right height.
