Drive Chain Release Kit For Deere 750 No-Till Drill
The specially-made chain release sprocket, installed in place of the ground drive sprocket, lets you disengage the drive sprocket when transporting the drill. With the drive in the released position, there are no moving parts on the drill, totally eliminating wear when it isn't planting.
The kit installs in about 45 min., ac-cording to Lynn Hufford of Jackson-Lee-Pearson, Inc., Flora, Ind., and consists of a hinge kit for the drive chain safety shield so you can get quick access to the drive sprocket. Then you replace the original one-piece drive sprocket with a 2-piece sprocket and hub.
To release the chain, you simply turn a small lever on the sprocket, disengaging the hub from the sprocket so the hub turns inside the sprocket without engaging it.
Sells for $165.
