The Kinze 4900 has all you need in a planter and all you want. This Front-fold planter has 30" spacing available with 12, 16 or 24 rows. The Kinze electric drive meter maintains consistent seed spacing in turns across the entire planter bar. The result? Higher yield potential through properly spaced seed. The Kinze vac meter add-on offers more than a 99% accuracy at speeds up to 8 MPH (as field conditions allow). The simple single singulator cartridge has 3 settings to easily change between crops or seed sizes without needing a replacement. The 4900 has the only bulk fill system available with hydraulic weight transfer, continuous airflow and optional scale package. A smart hydraulic weight transfer design distributes the weight of the hoppers to the wings, reducing yield loss from pinch row compaction and maintains a consistent seed depth for every row for higher yields. Opt for the electric clutches for less overlap on end rows, greater seed savings and lower input costs. With the narrow 12-foot transport width enjoy an easy transport to and from the field and a 42-degree flex (21 degrees up or down). A 24-inch toolbar height allows for more clearance for additional attachments and better residue flow. The flip axel option (available on 24 row planter models) shortens hitch-to-axle length by nearly 5’, decreasing the turning radius for tighter turns. Additional options include: high capacity bulk-fill seed tanks (with 120 BU capacity available), pneumatic down pressure and ISOBUS compatibility.
12 Row 30"
16 Row 30"
24 Row 30"
Multi-Hybrid Option Configuration:
16 Row 30"
4000 Series Row Unit
Consistent performance in all conditions. Rugged cast-iron design for maximum side-load strength. Increased 12" row unit vertical travel for steep slopes and terraces. Cast Iron shank for greater reliability and durability. Steel Gauge Wheel Rims for increased durability. Powder coat finish for added protection.
High-Definition Smart Sensor
High-definition, two-piece, optical seed sensor. Counts every seed, even at higher populations, unlike other leading brands which use average count. Monitors multiples, skips and spacing at higher population rates. Automatically self-calibrates for dust. Instant response to population changes. Large seed tube minimizes seed bounce within the tube, ensuring consistent seed spacing. Available on 4900 planters with electric drive.
Custom Molded Tires
Specially formed to help prevent compaction over newly planted rows.
Hydraulic Weight Transfer
Kinze's Hydraulic weight transfer system distributes the planter's weight across the toolbar to reduce pinch row compaction, potentially reducing yield loss due to compaction and keeping consistent planting depth across all rows, even in tough no-till conditions. Standard with bulk fill hoppers; optional with conventional hoppers.
The hydraulic weight transfer system distributes the bulk fill planter's weight across the toolbar like a non bulk fill planter, potentially reducing yield loss due to pinch row compaction. Transfers weight from center section to the wings. Keeps wing rows in the ground. Improves depth control.
Hydraulically Activated Flip Axle
Reduces planter turning radius by nearly 5 feet. Patent pending. Available on 24R30 only.
Tested and proven superior reliability over other competitor ag-grade cylinders. Hydraulics are built in Williamsburg, IA.
Narrow 12' Transport Front Fold
Narrow front fold 12' transport. Less than the width of your dual tractor tires. Kinze has been the industry leader in safety and transport since the introduction of the rear folding and lift-and-pivot planters.
Three-Section Front Fold Frame
The first front fold planter on the market with hydraulic weight transfer to minimize pinch row compaction.
Toolbar Height (24")
The 24” toolbar height, is 4” higher than the typical industry standard. This height allows for greater row unit travel which provides higher in-field clearance, better residue flow, and increased visibility.
Wing flex gives superior ground contact on rolling terrain leading to consistent depth control, which leads to higher yields. The 3660 planter has 26 degrees of total toolbar flex, 13 degrees up and down.
