The final part of our planter maintenance series covers the bulk hopper.

  • Check cover-gasket condition and seal integrity. If the cover gasket does not appear to contact the cover evenly, adjustment of the hinges and latches may be helpful in maintaining a more airtight seal
  • Remove debris from the bulk seed fan screen
  • Clean bulk-fill inductor box
  • Inspect inductor box seals

You can also explore more in-depth bulk-hopper troubleshooting charts in the Planter Productivity brochure and the bulk fill inspection video tip below.
