John Deere announced several updates to the model year 2022 planter line up. The Central Fill Tanks (CCS) have 30% more capacity with each tank capable of holding 130 bushels of seed on the larger frame models. To help increase floatation with the weight of these larger tanks, Deere now offers factory installed tracks on the 1775 NT planter. They are similar to the Soucy tracks that have been available as a field install option for several years. Customers like their reliability, increased flotation, and minimized yield loss on pinch rows. Sloan Express sells these after market tracks and you can view more info at their website.
Exact Rate Integrated Liquid Fertilizer is another enhancement for model year 2022 planters. Now factory installed 600 gallon liquid fertilizer tanks with all of the necessary plumbing are available on newly ordered planters. Combine this planter liquid tank with the new integrated ExactRate 1000 gallon tanks on an 8RX 410 tractor and you have 1600 gallons of liquid capacity allowing up to 80 acres of liquid fertilizer application at a rate of 20 gallon/acre.
Additional LED lighting packages on the planter allow for greater visibility during night time planting.
