The 3140 planter is the only planter in its class with spring-loaded contact drive tires, adjustable height wheel modules, self-contained seed-rate transmissions and a point row clutch option. Transportation is made easy with the 3140. The optional flex cylinder package allows wings to flex 8 degrees up and down. A unique 3-point patented stack fold system allows wings to flex 8 degrees upward from an inboard hinge point. Other features like telescoping U-joint shafts, optional dual-lift assist wheel arms and parallel linkage folding mechanisms increase stability for best-in-class transport width.

3000 Series Row Unit
Durable parallel linkage with optimal down force springs or pneumatic down pressure package. Precision cast mountings for opener blades. Powder coat finish for added protection. Hardened seed tube guard and scraper for opener blades. Molded wheel covers minimize soil build up on wheels and reduce rock damage. Load-equalizing gauge wheels for uniform depth control, even in heavy residue or rugged planting conditions. Heavy-duty shank with triangular reinforcement for max side-load strength.
1.9 Bu. Conventional Row Unit Hopper
More production. Superior performance and greater reliability. For use in non bulk fill planters only.
Conventional Row Unit Seed Hoppers
1.9 bu. seed capacity!* Unmatched seed flow and clean out. Translucent so you can monitor seed levels. Easy to remove. Easy to access. (*1.75 bu. capacity on vacuum meter models.)
Computerized Smart Sensor
See and count every seed with new high-definition, one-piece optical seed tube. Count up to 120 seeds per second. Track population changes instantly. Compatible with Precision Planting 20/20 Seed Sense®, Ag Leader® STMM or any system using Dickey John® seed tubes. New smoother, stronger seed tube.
Bolt-on Height Adjust Wheel Modules
Adjust toolbar height to accommodate all planting conditions. Change row spacings. Eliminate ground drive chains, reduce residue problems and avoid rocks/mud build-up. Optional front-mount conversion package for drive gauge wheels.
Custom Molded Tires
Specially formed to help prevent compaction over newly planted rows.
End Wheel Modules
End wheel modules allow quick and easy access to seed rate transmissions. One per wing on 12 row models; two per wing on 16 row models.
Exclusive Push Row Unit Design
Upgrade toolbar balance and precision depth control with the exclusive push row unit design. This design helps eliminate the congestion of side-by-side units with superior residue flow. Its spring-loaded, over-center row unit lock ups allow you to switch from split rows to standard width rows in minutes. This concept comes standard with the split row package option.
Tested and proven superior reliability over other competitor ag-grade cylinders. Hydraulics are built in Williamsburg, IA.
Three-Section Stack-Fold Toolbar
7" x 7" x 3/8" frame with 7" x 7" x 1/4" wings. Compatible with category 3N or 3 hitch sizes.
Wheel modules provide easy end-mounted access. Consistent populations. More yield potential. Precision-cut plated sprockets readily available. No tools needed. Split drive system reduces driveline torque on contours, curves, corners. Throw-out clutches shut off optional split row interplants in seconds.
Mechanical Ground Contact Drive System
Smooth, reliable and easy to operate. Less horsepower required compared to hydraulic drives. Uses spring-loaded tires. No clutches. No chains to remove for transport.
