Flexibility with available tow-behind or tow-between configurations. The Precision Disk 500 Air Drill provides higher capacity air seeding. Available in 30, 40, 50 or 60 ft toolbar widths.
Precision Disk 500 Air Drill Highlights
•Tow-between or tow-behind configurations
•Split front and rear ranks to allow single rank seeding
•Easily folds for transportability
•In-Cab down pressure control
Transport & Flotation:
•The vertical fold design allows for lowest transport height in the industry as well as narrow transport widths
•The 25 ft & 30 ft Precision Disk Drills also utilize a wing lock for safe transport
•To fold or unfold the tool, a single remote lever in the tractor is used
•While transporting or pulling in/out of a field, the ground clearance of the openers is 8.5 in
•The wide profile of the transport wheels provide the stability to move the disk drill confidently, even at higher roading speeds
•Maximum transport speed should not exceed 20 mph
•Stubble resistant tires at all locations
•12 total wheels
•Front of mainframe- 12/5L x 15 dual on castoring rigid axles
•Front and rear of each wing --12.5L x 15 single wheel (front on caster)
•Rear of mainframe--18L x 16.1 dual wheels on rigid axles
•Stubble resistant tires at all locations
•16 total wheels
•Front of mainframe--12.5L x 15 dual on castoring walking tandem axles
•Front and rear of each wing--12.5L x 15 duals on walking beam axles (front on castor)
•Rear of mainframe 18L x 16.1 dual wheels on walking beam axles
Tow-Behind or Tow-Between, It's Up to You:
•The front pull hitch is a floating style hitch
•Allows the disk drill to float up and down, independently from the tractor and hitch
•Improves ground following and seed depth control because the hitch will not raise or lower the front of the tool when the tractor rides over a hill or an obstacle
•A rear hitch is available to hook up any tow-behind air cart
•The rear hitch is designed to ensure a tight implement turning radius and follow the tracks created by the tractor during transport
•Provides enough room to allow the drill frame to be folded into the transport position without disconnecting the air system
•A rear hitch package is available to provide the needed hydraulic and electronic power to the Tow-Behind air cart
•Lights and ISOBUS connection
•A strong cast Cat IV clevis
•For secure hitching, this type of hitch requires a 2" hitch pin
Rear Hitch Caddy
•When utilizing a Tow-Between air cart a convenient rear hitch can also be added to the drill to tow other caddies
More Accurate Seed Placement- Better stands. Better yields. Producers will achieve best-in-class emergence in a wide variety of soils and residues. Case IH Precision Disk 500 Air Drills offer the most accurate seed placement available.
Standard Air Package
•Ideal for almost every crop and fertilizer type.
•The primary and secondary runs feature UV resistant flexible PVC with a steel header and EZ-Flow manifold.
Extended Wear Package
•Ideal for highly abrasive crops like rice.
• The primary run features 2.5 in diameter flexible PVC hoses, each with a Urethane Liner that resists wear and extends the life of the hose.
• The secondary run is UV resistant 1 in flexible PVC hose
Flow Monitoring Optical Sensors
•Optional optical sensors monitor the product flow through the delivery system.
•Quickly alert product flow concerns for quick resolution
•Ensures higher yields
•When an obstruction is detected, the operator will hear an audible alarm in the cab and the blocked run will be displayed on the console
•These sensors provide non-contact monitoring as either primary or secondary run systems for single-shoot configurations
Split Rank Seeding
•Row unit lock up offers the ability to easily split the front and rear ranks to allow seeding with only the front or only the rear rank.
•Raising the ranks, then rotating either the upper (front rank) or lower (rear rank) pair of valves will prevent the rank from lowering.
•Rank Lock-up pins would also be inserted.
•Stopping the seed is also required for split rank operation, a header insert kit should be ordered to stop seed flow to the split tank.
Header Stand Primary Distribution
Standard Wear Air Package -
•The patented dimpling in the header stand allows for randomized air flow and creates even seed distribution to the EZ Flow header
•The dimpling pattern eliminates overloading of seed to one side of the header stand
Extended Wear Air Package-
•Includes a high wear header that prevents areas with high amounts of seed contact from wearing out
•The header includes a reinforced area at the elbow as well as reinforced dimples to prevent the header from wearing out prematurely
