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.
The vacuum meter system gently pulls and holds individual seeds to the holes of the seed disk for population control and spacing accuracy, equaling better crop stands and profit. Vacuum seed meters can plant a wide variety of crops and seed types by simply changing seed disks and adjusting vacuum level. Vacuum seed meters are available for planters with MaxEmerge 5 row-units.
The MaxEmerge 5 meter shape has also been redesigned for better seed flow. The mini-hopper design allows the planter to successfully operate on side hills up to 14 degrees.
SeedStar™ 2 monitoring system
The SeedStar 2 monitoring system is a full-feature, color, seed population monitor used in conjunction with the GreenStar family of displays. SeedStar 2 is compatible with the GreenStar 2 1800 and 2600 Displays, GreenStar 3 2630 Display, the Gen 4 4200 CommandCenter™ Display, the Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter Display, the 4240 Universal Display, and the 4640 Universal Display. Conveniently, SeedStar 2 planting functions are fully integrated with the full spectrum of Precision Ag Technology applications—guidance, coverage maps, and field documentation can be shown all on one display.
Downforce system options
Heavy-duty adjustable downforce springs
Planter row-unit downforce is an important factor to ensure consistent and proper depth control. The heavy-duty adjustable downforce feature provides up to 181.4 kg (400 lb) of downforce. There are four settings available to allow the operator to choose the amount of downforce required for the condition: 0 kg (0 lb), 56.7 kg (125 lb), 113.4 kg (250 lb), and 181.4 kg (400 lb).
Compatibility: 1705, 1715, 1725, 1735, 1755, 1765, 1765NT, 1775 Flex, and 1785
Standard 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 to 181.4 kg (0 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 utilising 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.
John Deere liquid fertiliser system delivers row-to-row accuracy
Block manifold delivery system
Delivering consistent and accurate fertiliser rates to each row is critical with any liquid fertiliser delivery system. The John Deere liquid fertiliser system utilises 12-port block manifolds to equally distribute flow to the opener or in-furrow method of application. Liquid is distributed to each row through a 7.6-mm (0.3-in.) hose.
There are check valves at each row to ensure the system remains primed and flow stops immediately when planter is lifted.
Granular fertiliser systems
Granular fertiliser is available for 1755, 1775, and 1785 Planters. Hoppers hold approximately 249.5 kg (550 lb) of fertilizer for longer operating time between fill-ups. One hopper feeds two rows. Hopper lids provide a large opening for fast filling with less spillage. Hoppers pivot for easy dumping and cleaning.
The transmission (two on 1775) has 24 sprocket combinations in consistent 6 percent increments to allow operators to apply fertiliser at the desired application rate. Depending on which auger is selected, a wide range of fertiliser rates can applied from 52.7 kg/ha (47 lb/acre) to 803.7 kg/ha (717 lb/acre). It requires openers or a surface application bracket.
A 406.4-mm (16-in.) notched marker disk blade with a 101.6-mm (4-in.) wide depth gauging band is base equipment on folding markers. Notched marker disk blades are compatible with all tillage conditions but are recommended for no-till and high-residue mulch-till conditions. This marker uses a 44.45-mm (1.75-in.) square tube marker arm extension.
