调平耕作工具

在使用耕作工具之前,这个春天,确保它的级别从前到后面,并向一侧。为什么有两个原因。一,您不想在该领域的不同深度创建任何土壤脊。第二个是,当种植者经历时,它可能会在一些地区的正确深度施加种子。

Ryan Bergman是爱荷华州立大学的一名计划专家。他说,首先检查轮胎,以确保它们处于良好状态和正确的压力。超过或膨胀可能导致耕地机更深或更浅。然后,将工具放在水平表面上并展开翅膀。

"Put the machine in whatever hydraulic mode you would typically operate it in, for most machines that’s in a float-type position. And then, typically what we’ve seen most manufacturers recommend for a variety of reasons is lower the tool down to within a couple inches of the ground. And then get out and just start measuring across it," says Bergman. "You want to measure both laterally across it, so from right to left of the tool but also from front to back of the tool as well, we want to check the levelness there."

由于机器的柄和其他部件的磨损,将存在一些自然方差。除非你看到差异大于一英寸,否则他说不要过于担心。

"If you see differences left to right, or on the wings versus on the center section, typically we’re going to adjust those by some of the linkages that connect those to the main frame. If we see differences forward to backwards, or front to rear on the machine, that can often be a coupling issue, you know, the hitch is higher than what it used to be and we need to level the machine back out front to back," he says. "It depends on the machine, but usually there’s some connection or some type of coupling that you can level the machine front to back with."
