document Planting with SureForce
By focusing on agronomic principles for the crop being planted and having a working knowledge of how SureForce behaves, we can ensure that the crop has a high potential for prompt and uniform emergence. Consider the two categorical influencers for applied force, the row unit and field conditions. Thinking about downforce in this way can help operators identify potential problems and gain a deeper understanding of information shown on the InCommand 1200 as applied force is automatically...

document SureForce on White 8500/9500 Planters
Ag Leader does not have kit support for these planters as there are certain cases where we cannot mount SureForce. Existing pneumatic down force mounting hardware makes it difficult or impossible to mount SureForce actuators and actuator brackets. It may be possible to mount SureForce on planters if pneumatic down force was NOT installed. If a customer would like to install SureForce on these planters they have to do their own research on the planter configuration and if the required hardware components...

document Hydraulic Bleed/Check Troubleshooting
Before running SureForce for the season you’ll want to verify functionality by running a hydraulic bleed and hydraulic check. If the hydraulic check/bleed are not functioning you’ll need to verify the following: 1. To run the Hydraulic Check or Bleed you will need to be on the Main Down Force Setup screen, and not have a current event on the run screen. If you do not have the option for Hydraulic Check or Bleed you’ll need to create a configuration using SureForce and not Row Modules for...
