Not a high population problem was seen, but after autosteer was installed and a person could watch the planter, when it got hot would see the rawlson drives stop for less than a second maybe 10 times on 1/2 mile rows. With the split row planter, planting corn on 15" rows, you would never see a skip from the road after it was up. Integra never responded with a alarm of Drives Stalling or Out of Sync.
Mostly happened planting beans after wheat harvest. It got so bad it would leave 2' skip that could be seen. I solved the problem by installing a small fan cooled radiator on the return line mounted on the tonuge.. Problem solved for 3 years now.
