Air Manifold Gauge

A Murphy gauge measures air manifold pressure using inches of water column. The gauge is connected to the in-cab control with warning light and buzzer to warn of insufficient air pressure, ensuring proper application.

Manifold-Venturi System and Funnel Tray

The venturi and manifold systems can be lowered by means of a quick release. Funnel trays are inserted for collection of product when calibrating or emptying the unit.

Hopper Bottom Slide Gates

Manually operated slide gates stop product flow to the metering system, allowing you to remove the roller for cleaning or servicing.

Calibration Hand Crank

To make calibrating a product as precise and easy as possible, a hand crank is provided to turn the metering system. The product can be collected by using the funnel trays and weighed for determining exact application rates.

In-Cab Control

The dual electric clutch control allows you to operate the metering system from the operator’s seat. Two magnetic clutches and in-cab control allow half shut-off on either side.

Metering Roller

The 1255 PT uses two fluted rollers for metering granular product or seed. The red rollers have 28 grooves and are used for application of fine products such as granular herbicide and small seeds such as grass, flax, canola, alfalfa, etc. The coarse rollers have 12 grooves and are used with fertilizer and larger seeds such as wheat or soybeans. Each unit comes with both types of rollers.

60-speed Gearbox

Rate adjustment is easy and precise with 60 settings at five percent increments. The gearbox features eight speeds, two ranges, and four input drive ratios, giving a wide selection of rates. Combined with the ground drive system, it provides unparalleled accuracy over the entire range of settings.
