Earlier this summer, Case IH announced the expansion of its 2000 series Early Riser planter lineup with a new 2130 stack-fold mounted 3-point hitch model.
Available in five configurations, this new planter is rebuilt from the ground up, from the rugged row unit to Precision Planting technology, and includes new features that enhance productivity. Available models include 12-row 30-, 36-, 38- or 40-inch row spacing configurations and 16-row 30-inch row spacing configurations.
“We’re excited that this new planter provides high speed, high specs and high tech — all available straight from the factory,” said Tony McClelland, Case IH planter marketing manager. “This is also a great new option for growers in specialty applications, now offering them the same specs and features corn and soybean growers love in the 2000 series lineup.”
Engineered to be a high-speed planter, the 2130 Early Riser can be customized from the factory for specialty operations, including:
- Irrigation — The stack-fold configuration brings row units close to the tractor, so an operator can easily maneuver and plant as close as possible to an irrigation ditch or pipe.
- Strip-till — The mounted design eliminates draft so the planter follows the tractor and, in turn, more precisely follows guidance lines.
- Wide rows — 30-, 36-, 38- and 40-inch row configurations offer options for wide rows of specialty crops.
- Multiple crop types — An improved metering system gently handles each seed, providing reliable seed delivery for a variety of crops, including cotton, peanuts, soybeans and edible dry beans.
“This planter brings the proven benefits of Precision Planting technology and the design of the 2000 series Early Riser planters and opens it up to specialty crop types,” McClelland said. “These customizable features aren’t just for the major crops. Now growers of many crop types and farming practices have access to the 2000 series to customize their dream planter.”
The heavy-duty toolbar on the 2130 planter also provides a solid frame for a smooth, durable stack-fold system. During planting, weight is evenly distributed across the tractor, maximizing flotation and minimizing compaction. Optional lift-assist wheels are available for added support, and a gullwing option provides additional wing lift when the planter is raised, for more clearance on headland turns.
