The stainless steel ties are provided in case the planter rolls backward. If this happens the tubes can bend backwards off of the seed tube guard. Tighten the tie with the fastening point in the front of the guard, closest to the brush, above the carbide tips on the seed tube guard. (see pictures below) Tighten as much as possible so the disc blade does not rub on the tie. Snip off the stainless tie close to the fastening point.

Step 9

The 6mm plastic line is optional. It is provided for additional pressure out of the bottom of the tube. This tube can be inserted up the bottom of the tube, leaving 1/4" sticking out of the bottom. Please inspect daily.

Please note: This line may or may not need to be used. In some very dry conditions, this line may melt due to friction; if this happens, remove the plastic 6mm line.
