Air Tank Pressure

Why is John Deere the only ones to offer a tank pressure gauge on their air cart? Seems like something so simple. Even just a dummy light in the cab. Anyone know of any any aftermarket ones? Looking for a Bourgault 6550

That's a good question! Would have saved me from doing a couple hundred acres a couple years ago with the fertilizer lid open!


It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

I certainly miss those gauges to when we switched to a Bourgault tank last year from a Deere. We had a screw up which resulted in floating fertilizer on one field after it was seeded.

I'm not here to tip toe through the rose garden, I'm here to bulldoze through the bullshit.

I fitted one in the cab of my tractor, with an airline to the air seeder fan manifold. I use workshop air fittings to disconnect the hose at the back of the tractor and the back of the cultivator.

I got the gauge itself from a Simplicity Air Seeder dealer. That was the only place I could track one down that showed the ultra low pressure.

Bin pressure sensors are integrated into the control system of the new Seed Hawks. System alarms if bin pressure doesn't build within 30 seconds of the fans turning on.

Conserva-Pak used two "inch H2O" gauges on the front platform.
dial manometer, low pressure gauge, air pressure gage

I can't remember which ones the drill used, but I recall that wheat needed 5" and canola quite a bit less. I could call the owner for you.

Morris used to put a air gauge on their 6 and 7000 series cart also.

The new P series tanks from New Holland (flexi-coil) has a pressure differential alarm on tank and meter. It works, I tried it.
