The 1725NT utilises an integral, stack-fold frame that allows for a transport width of approximately 3.05 m (10 ft) and a height of just over 4 m (13 ft). Operators who drive on narrow roadways or work in small fields will find the narrow transport frame, without lift-assist wheels, to be especially useful in situations where maneouverability is limited.
The 1725NT also includes 40.6-cm (16-in.) notched disk markers in the base machine, with an option for less markers. The notched disk design allows for a more aggressive marking capability, especially in minimum-till or no-till conditions.
MaxEmerge™ 5e overview
The MaxEmerge 5e is designed to improve population accuracy, spacing, and avoid wasting inputs for maximising 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. 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.
The 1725NT utilises a unique 56.4-L (1.6 bu) hopper that can be tilted and braced upwards to gain easy access to the meter for adjustments or cleanout.
This design also has a shutoff door to allow for metre access when seed is still in the hopper.
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.
SeedStar™ 3 HP monitoring system
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.
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 metre 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.
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.
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.
