When conditions are right and the weather’s cooperating, it’s tough to stop for lunch — let alone give your planter the once-over. But it’s time well spent, especially when you consider the delays a major repair causes.

Depending on your planter model, check points and maintenance intervals vary. For example, the new 2000 series Early Riser® planters eliminate the mechanical components conventional planters need, thus greatly reducing maintenance. So, start by consulting your operators manual regularly to ensure you’re current on recommended upkeep, and then consider these tips from the Case IH Parts & Service team to help keep your planter planting.
