1725C Planter – integral stack folding
The 1725C stack-fold design provides narrow transport capability for these integral, large-frame planters. 1725C Stack-Fold Planters have the ability to operate in both rigid-frame and flex-frame configurations. The 1725C utilises a three-section frame that can flex up to 8 degrees up and 8 degrees down. 1725C is not offered with markers.
The 1725C Stack-Fold Integral Planter is available in the following configurations: 12Row36, 12Row38, or 12Row40.
1725C Central Commodity System (CCS™)
CCS seed delivery adds productivity through increased seed capacity, bulk-fill capability, and easy cleanout.
The single tank on the 1725C has a capacity of 1233.4 L (35 bu). CCS tanks are manufactured using a rotomolded, polyethylene design to ensure maximum durability. The translucent tank allows for easy viewing of seed in the tanks.
MaxEmerge™ 5e overview
The MaxEmerge 5e is designed to improve population accuracy, spacing, and avoid wasting inputs for maximizing yield. The “e” in MaxEmerge 5e stands for electric drive. It is driven by one electric motor per meter with a small controller. This does away with the shafts and drivelines of a typical mechanical drive. That means more reliability, less maintenance, and easier access to row-unit components. For producers who want uniform seed spacing, the MaxEmerge 5e is a great option.
One of the biggest advantages of the MaxEmerge 5e is how it improves population accuracy by compensating for curves on the outer rows of the planter. The MaxEmerge 5e row-unit eliminates shafts and drivelines from the planter, allowing better access to row-unit components and decreased planter maintenance. Additionally, the MaxEmerge 5e allows corn and soybean growers to achieve up to a 20 percent improvement in population accuracy on the outer rows of a 24-row planter while planting on curves utilising curve compensation.
Terraces or waterways are two of many field obstacles that make planting on a curve challenging. When planters utilise drive shafts, they are not able to control each individual row-unit; as a result, planting on a curve presents an issue of maintaining 100 percent population. Since the inside rows are moving slower than the outside rows, the inside rows will be over populating while the outside rows are under populating.
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.
Increase productivity with ExactEmerge™ trench delivery system and BrushBelt™ delivery system
ExactEmerge maintains accurate speed placement at higher speeds; growers can avoid missing that peak planting time, thereby helping to get the highest crop yields.
With the BrushBelt trench delivery system, the spacing in the trench does not change from even to uneven terrain. This can be a problem with a traditional seed tubes. Seed bounce and ricochet may occur as slopes increases, ultimately decreasing seed spacing performance.
Dual 56-V electric motors for ExactEmerge™ row-units
Two 56-V brushless electric motors provide ExactEmerge the upper hand over any other row-unit on the market. One motor controls the high-performance meter and the other powers the BrushBelt™ delivery system. Both feature a closed loop system ensuring they operate at the correct rpm.
Brushless motors are maintenance free and give the producer the most optimal solution to achieve the highest performance and the lowest amount of work to the planter.
SeedStar™ 3 HP monitoring system
Building upon the foundation of previous SeedStar monitoring, the SeedStar 3 HP monitoring system takes planter monitoring to the next level. When paired with the GreenStar 3 2630 Display, the SeedStar 3 HP monitoring system provides critical information about the planting process to the operator within the tractor cab. SeedStar 3 HP is compatible with the GreenStar 3 2630, the Gen 4 4200 CommandCenter™ Display, the Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter Display, the 4240 Universal Display, and the 4640 Universal Display.
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.
