Features

Electronic population rate control saves seed costs

Electronic population rate controlElectronic population rate control

With seed prices on the rise, producers want the ability to monitor and control seed populations on the go.

Electronic population rate control (EPRC), in base equipment on the 1590 Drill,allowsproducers to adjust the population rate right from the convenience of their tractor cab.

The system:

  • Features an in-cab rocker switch to adjust the electric motor that controls the population rate
  • Is manually adjusted –the operator must hold down the adjustment switch until the desired rate is met
  • Can be overridden by pushing back on the motor to allow theproducer to make a manual adjustment to the rate ifneeded

NOTE:To give producers the ability to monitor the population rate on the go, it is highly recommendedthey equip the unit with aComputerTrak™monitor or SeedStar™ population monitoring.

NOTE:One system is used with 3.05-m (10-ft) and 4.6-m (15-ft) drills.The 6.1-m (20-ft) models require two systems.

Productive seedbox capacities

SeedboxSeedbox

Seedboxes have a large capacity for longer intervals between stops for refilling.

All boxes are plain grain with a large, single lid for accessing the seedbox.

1590 Drill seed/fertilizer delivery system

Seed tubeSeed tube

A long, internally smooth seed tube with a molded elbow is supported at the seed tube support. From there, it is connected to a short, convoluted seed tube, allowingproduct to flow smoothly to the openers and still flex.

The tube flexes to avoid crimping for consistent seed flow. It is made of non-corrosive nylon material for long life. Long tubes are 55.4 cm (21.8 in.) and short tubes are 10.8 cm (4.25 in.).

Elbow at meters to angle the seed tube directly to the openers.

The smooth inside diameterprovides smoothseed flow from the meters to the furrow openers.

Seed tube with Y-adapterSeed tube with Y-adapter

The combination grain/fertilizer drill with 19-cm (7.5-in.) row spacing features a convoluted tube directing fertilizer from the discharge hole to the top of the steel seed tube at the seed boot. From there, a special Y-adapter lets seed and fertilizer mix before going into the furrow.
