Bourgault should put this thread in their sales flyers!!!! lol


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!

Fan speed with the new scrapers isn't nearly as critical for performance as with the old ones.
What did you do about the sagging openers? Our 2015 is doing it but new one isnít. Assume we have some leaking rams


Any inquiries-

Only lost one ever. Either the bolt wasn’t tight enough or it didn’t have one small outside diameter machine bushing between the inner bearing race and the alignment spacer washers causing the spacer washers to drag on the bearing hub of the wheel, or missing the split lock washer on the outside. Same applies to a John Deere. Don’t let a bucket of 5/8” NCT bolts defeat you in a war of wits.

Brand new bolts, torqued and retorqued. Brand new bushings. That isnít the issue. Loads of lock tight.

Generally speaking if bolts are breaking they’re too tight, if they’re falling out they’re too loose, if they stay in place they’re just about right.

The end rams on each seed row were replaced and that fixed it. 4 rams in total if I remember correctly. The end rams are a different part # then all the rest.

Thanks, Iím gonna look into that. Just to clarify, the end rams were originally all the same but they changed the end ones out for a different version?

I think the original end rams were also unique when compared to the rest of the drill, but internally they fail or let oil leak by which causes the problem. I probably can't answer your questions properly as I forgot just how it works, but the new end rams fixed the problem. I think it was a "bourgault" fix that I heard nothing about.

Here's where Bourgault lists all the service bulletins so you can find them if your dealer doesn't tell you about them
