Air Seeder Flow Control
Most air seeders like J.D. 777 or flexi-coil current production
(1990 & onward) use a small Gresen mgg 200 motor direct coupled to the fan and consumes about 9 gallons per minute.
Other systems like Bourg Ault, Morris and new flexi-coil use between 9 to 12 gpm to operate various types of direct drive fan motors.
They have a different air delivery system to 770/785/655/665 units with an entirely different fan.
You can “rob” this flow off your present qualified hydraulic system for seeding, by adjusting an installed flow control package system* to give you the desired fan speed. At any time you are not using the seeder/drill, return the control to zero; then 100% of pump flow
will be restored to the tractor conventional directional control valve. The components can be placed where it is convenient.
We suggest mounting them outside the cab.
