Outstanding versatility and superior strength are standard qualities in the 3600 model planter. Each model utilizes the only bulk fill system available with hydraulic weight transfer, continuous airflow and optional scale package. The hydraulic weight transfer distributes the weight of the bulk fill hoppers to the wings, reducing yield loss from pinch row compaction and maintaining consistent seed depth for every row resulting in higher yields. Travel with ease using the ultimate, narrow-row transport technology. A unique pivot fold allows for a transport width of just 11' 2" with easy serviceability. The 5” x 7” rugged toolbar offers a 4 row center section and 14 degrees of total flex (7 degrees up or down) for improved ground contact on rolling terrain and terraces. Change seed populations on the go with an optional hydraulic variable drive. Additional available features include: liquid and dry fertilizer capabilities, mechanical and vacuum metering, and pneumatic down pressure.

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.
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.
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.
Over-Center Wing Locks
Hydraulically locks the wings rigid for transport. Allows them to flex a full 7 degrees when planting.
Pivot Folding Toolbar
Hydraulically lift and rotate the planter in-line for industry leading narrow 11' 2"" transport width. Raised toolbar makes it much easier to service with direct access and visibility of your ground engaging components.
Rotating Center Post
Stainless-steel clad 6" x 6" rotating center post with high-density plastic wear pads (16). Raised toolbar makes it much easier to service.
Three-Section Double-Frame Planter
4 row center section. 4 row wings on 12R30; 6 row wings on 16R30. Reinforced box and truss construction. Modified "Y" tongue accommodates push units for twin row set-ups. Telescoping hitch for shortened in field turn length.
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.
Electric Half-Width Disconnect Point Row Clutches
Shut off either side of the planter right from the cab.
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.
