The 3200 planter offers a superior center flex for terraces and rolling terrain with a simple wing fold design. The full 25-degree range (13 degrees up and 12 degrees down) coupled with a low hinge point below the toolbar, reduces the compaction on pinch rows to improve seed depth control, placement and emergence. An optional electric row clutch package shuts off either side of the planter for half-width planting. Twin transmissions allow for easy adjustments, simple contact tire drive and simple maintenance. The liquid fertilizer option and auto-swath capability increases efficiency while reducing operational costs. The 7" x 7" toolbar was designed to carry liquid fertilizer and openers while still offering all row unit options (like no-till coulters or residue cleaners). Choose a 3200 model for durability, reliability and easy operation controls.
12 Row 30"
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.
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.
Simple fold design with manual or optional hydraulic front folding wings, reliable hinges using 1" thick hinge plates and 2 1/8" diameter hinge pivot pins. Two 4" x 7” hitch tubes allow the true center flex design to run up to the clevis.
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.
Tested and proven superior reliability over other competitor ag-grade cylinders. Hydraulics are built in Williamsburg, IA.
Three-Fold Row Markers
Features:16"-diameter solid blades (*notched available). Tapered roller bearings. Adjustable pitch (0 - 22 degrees). Double-acting cylinders and hydraulic sequence valve with flow controls alternates markers automatically. Standard on the 3600 12R36-38 and 12R30 models with T-hitch.
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.
