Hydraulic Requirements


Recommended Flow Requirements

Hydraulic flow requirements are highest when turning on the headlands. The recommended flow allows the seeding system to be raised and lowered within two headlands. 

Hydraulic Requirements:

Hydraulic oil flow of 25 gpm is recommended for all configurations of 3420 ParaLink™ Hoe Drills

  • Recommended hydraulic flow should provide minimal fan slowdown during headland turns. The openers will take hydraulic flow priority over the fans.

  • If operating at minimum flow requirements, the air seeder fan speed will drop during headland turns. This may require a 3rd headland to allow the openers time to raise and lower.

  • With many tractors, maximum hydraulic flow drops off sharply prior to maximum operating pressure. By setting the tractor to a pressure setting of 3100 psi, the hydraulic flow will be near the rated output at the maximum operating pressure.

  • It is recommended to use ¾” couplers on the tractor and implement, as this will greatly reduce the pressure drops and will increase the flow of oil to the fan or opener cylinders.
