New configuration of Precision Disk 500T single disk air drill

The new soybean special configuration available for the 500T single disk air drill offers a single-rank design with a mounted tank.

“Even in tough field conditions, the most important job of any air drill is to ensure even and accurate seed placement,” said Trent Nowosad, Case IH marketing manager for seeding equipment. “This new soybean special configuration combines the unmatched accuracy and versatility of our 500T model with a simple, single-rank design, making it an ideal option for soybean and specialty crop producers.”

The Precision Disk 500T air drills features four-section control to reduce input costs by eliminating seed overlap. The new single-rank configuration with 15-inch spacing is offered in 30- and 40-foot widths with either a 70- or 100-bu. tank. The Precision Disk 500T model is also equipped with in-cab row unit down-pressure control and a tank-mounted weigh scale for easy calibration and loading.

New configuration of 2130 Early Riser stack-fold planter

Case IH expands its lineup of Early Riser planters with a new model configuration of 2130 Early Riser stack-fold planter. The new 18-row configuration with 30-inch spacing delivers the largest configuration available for the 2130 stack-fold model.

“Producers tell us they need larger planters and equipment to help cover more acres and increase productivity during planting season,” said Ken Lehmann, Case IH crop production marketing manager. “We’ve heard from many producers who are interested in controlled traffic and want to match their planting traffic with their sprayer or tillage passes. This new 18-row configuration aims to give them that option and flexibility.”

The 2130 stack-fold model with a mounted three-point hitch is ideal for strip-till, flood irrigation operations and specialty crops. Retro-fit options are available for producers who own 16-row configurations of the 2130 stack-fold model.
