RowCommand™ individual-row control system
RowCommand controls seed output
Controlling input costs and improving productivity are key producer requirements today. RowCommand is an effective, integrated John Deere solution designed to meet these intensifying needs. The RowCommand system manages seed output, reduces yield drag, and improves harvest capabilities on all Pro-Shaft™ driven row-units, and chain-driven MaxEmerge 5.
Pneumatic downforce system
Pneumatic downforce provides convenient, simple adjustment of downforce for the whole planter from one location. The amount of downforce applied is infinitely adjustable from 0 kg to 181.4 kg (0 lb to 400 lb). Pneumatic downforce provides more consistent downforce throughout the range of row-unit travel than mechanical spring downforce systems.
Seed variable-rate drive
Seed variable-rate drive provides the ultimate planting productivity by utilizing one, two, or three hydraulic motors (varies by model) to turn the seeding drive shaft. Hydraulic control of the seeding drive allows for on-the-go seeding rate changes right from the display mounted inside the tractor cab. Combine this seeding flexibility with the map-based planting option, and seeding rates adjust automatically based on the prescribed map.
MaxEmerge™ 5 row-unit
The MaxEmerge family of row-units have never seen a more versatile and efficient design until the MaxEmerge 5. The 5-family row-units improve productivity, increase uptime and lower the cost of ownership like never before.
The MaxEmerge 5 row-unit was designed for improved performance and serviceability.
1725 Central Commodity System (CCS™) Planter - integral stack folding
Convenient stack-folding design combined with rigid or flexible frame
The 1725 stack-fold design provides narrow transport capability for these integral, large-frame planters. 1725 Stack-Fold Planters have the ability to operate in both rigid-frame and flex-frame configurations. The 1725 CCS utilises a three-section frame that can flex up to 10 degrees up and 7 degrees down.
Heavy-duty lift-assist wheels are integrated into the 1725 CCS frame design. The CCS cradle is supported by the heavy-duty lift-assist wheels which reduce the amount of weight placed on the rear of the tractor. This design provides a balanced planter for maneuverability in the field and during transport. The 1725T CCS has larger 16.5L-16.1SL lift-assist wheel tyres to provide additional floatation in a variety of soils.
Central Commodity System (CCS™)
Central Commodity System (CCS) seed delivery adds productivity through increased seed capacity, bulk-fill capability, and easy, thorough cleanout. The two tanks have a combined capacity of 3523.9 L (100 bu) on the 1720 CCS Planters.
The 1720 CCS Planters have been designed to allow for a convenient central filling location and easy cleanout.
For those who work into the night, a fill light package is standard on machines equipped with CCS.
Vacuum control has been defined. Before vacuum automation, an operator set the vacuum level by adjusting the hydraulic flow through each selective control valve (SCV). Many variables altered the vacuum level while the hydraulic flow stayed constant. This could have resulted in under or over populating, which may have impacted singulation. With vacuum automation, all that needs to be done is set the desired vacuum level and let the monitor do the work of adjusting the hydraulic flow.
With ExactEmerge™ planters and equipped MaxEmerge™ 5e planters, the curve compensation feature allows each row to receive an individual signal based on the speed at which the row-unit is moving, maintaining the correct population across the width of the planter. Without curve compensation, there could be as much as a 24 percent drop in population accuracy, which is equivalent to 8,600 seeds per acre when planting at 36,000 seeds per acre.
Easy Adjust row cleaners
Easy Adjust row cleaner and coulter combo provides a pneumatic row tillage solution that is controlled from the seat of the tractor.
Every decision to make an adjustment during spring planting reduces the acres planted per day and can increase or decrease profitability. An adjustment that can be overlooked is row cleaners due to planter size, difficulty to make the adjustment, and varying conditions across fields and time.
Pneumatic closing wheels
Pneumatic closing wheels are compatible with MaxEmerge™ 5e and ExactEmerge™ row-units. They are available on the following models from the factory: 1775NT, 1795, and DB60 models. The pneumatic closing wheels give operators the ability to adjust closing wheels in seconds without leaving the cab of the tractor.
SeedStar™ 4HP monitoring system
SeedStar 4HP is designed to optimize the in-cab monitoring experience exclusively on the Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter™ display or 4640 Universal Display for growers with ExactEmerge™ planters and MaxEmerge™ 5e planters model year 2018 and newer. With SeedStar 4HP, operators will easily see key planter information with customizable run pages, zoom functionality, and simultaneous graph and performance measurements. SeedStar 4HP is included in base on all model year 2018 ExactEmerge and MaxEmerge 5e planters.
Mobile row-unit runoff
The first day of planting season can be as productive as the last with mobile row-unit runoff. The mobile row-unit runoff activation on the planter main controller (PMC) allows operators to make adjustments to maximise row-unit performance from a mobile device at the rear of the planter for both preseason and in-season use – all enabled through the PlanterPlus™ app.
