Meter cartridges for field conversion
There are five types of meter cartridges available to match seed and fertilizer types and rates.
Low rate
Low-rate meter roller

Low-rate meter roller

The yellow, low-rate meter roller is for rates from 0.91 up to 9.07 kg/ha (2 up to 20 lb/acre) for seeds such as flax, canola, and alfalfa. The low-rate meter roller rotates more continuously, minimizing pulsing effect for better metering at low rates. There are 20 flutes on this meter roller. Each flute is 8-mm (0.31-in.) wide at the top, 2-mm (0.08-in.) wide at the bottom, and 1.5-mm (0.06-in.) deep.
Medium rate
Medium-rate meter roller

Medium-rate meter roller

The black medium-rate meter roller is for rates from 9.07 up to 59 kg/ha (20 up to 130 lb/acre) for seeds such as wheat, barley, canola, and small soybeans up to 6.35 mm (0.25 in.) in diameter. It is also used for medium rates of fertilizer. This is the most commonly used meter roller. There are 10 flutes on this roller, which are 18.5-mm (0.73-in.) wide at the top of the flute, 12-mm (0.47-in.) at the bottom of the flute, and 8-mm (0.31-in.) deep.
High rate
High-rate meter roller

High-rate meter roller

The green, high-rate meter roller is for rates from 30 up to 99.8 kg/ha (220 lb/acre), such as high rates of fertilizer and large soybeans bigger than 6.35 mm (0.25 in.) in diameter. There are 10 flutes, which are deeper and wider. Each flute is 21.5-mm (0.85 in.) wide at the top of the flute, 8-mm (0.31-in.) wide at the bottom of the flute, and 14-mm (0.55-in.) deep.
Very high rate
Very high-rate meter roller

Very high-rate meter roller

This blue roller is for rates from 22.7-120.2 kg/ha (50-265 lb/acre), or seeds such as barley and oats with beards. It is also used for large seeds such as garbanzo beans (in non SectionCommand™ system applications) or very high fertilizer rates. There are six flutes, which are very deep and widely spaced.
Large-seed roller for SectionCommand control system
Large seed meter roller

Large seed meter roller

  • For use with large seeds only (6 mm [0.25 in.] in diameter or larger)
  • For use with SectionCommand only
  • Is not for use with fertilizers or cereal grains
  • Preserves seed quality of large seeds when used with SectionCommand
The width of the seeding tool and the number of furrow openers determine the number of active primary ports. The commodity cart can be equipped with a 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8-run meter roller. One meter roller is required for each tank on the 1910.
When outfitting a cart with SectionCommand, new SectionCommand meter cartridges with gates and gate detection equipment will be needed. SectionCommand is sold in eight-run only configurations. In order to utilize SectionCommand on carts paired with tools less than eight runs, primary reduction kits are available. See table below for more information.

Open or close product runs – C850 Air Cart
NOTE: The following procedure aligns the air cart meter with the seeding tool.
Part identification:

A. Hose clamp
B. Meter cover
C. Cap, 76.2 mm (3 in.) ID
D. Meter seal

NOTE: When metering high rates through a seeding tool with three to four secondary manifolds, it may be necessary to either add secondary manifolds or slow down to achieve a very high target rate.
