DB120 PLANTER STRETCH YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
If youre looking for a productive, all-purpose planter that can help you make the most of your narrow planting window, ask your dealer about the incredible DB Series Planters from John Deere. These acre-hungry machines will help you finish faster.
The DB Planters are available in ten configurations, with widths from 44 to 120 feet, for 20-inch, 22-inch and 30-inch row markets. Theres also a split-row model. All have the features and options you need for true planting efficiency and versatility. Our John Deere row-units and vacuum seed meters lead the industry in accuracy, adjustability and planting speed.
A range of seed-carrying capacities increases your flexibility and reduces refill stops. Plus you can add the new Central Insecticide System and shave hours off your refilling time. The Central Insecticide System is a revolutionary closed handling system thats designed to give you both effective corn rootworm control and exceptional planter productivity. And reliability? Dont worry these planters and their frames are among the toughest around, with plenty of 7x7 steel framing to tie everything together.
With long planters like these, tight turns could give you some uneasiness. But fear not. Thanks to optional steerable axles, the DB Series can cut corners with no trouble at all so you can get in and out of the field worry-free. Just hook the axles up to an independent hydraulic SCV on the tractor and youre ready to go. (Not available on DB60 models)
An easy-to-use control box lets you fold and unfold the DB Planter from the tractor cab. Can 44- to 120-foot planters really fold to a manageable transport size? You bet! In fact, the front-fold design of the DB Series Planters keeps transport widths between 15- and 17.6-feet. Lengths vary, but all are less than 62 feet. Ample underframe clearance (22 to 26 inches) during transport makes it easy to clear obstacles.
Large walking wing wheels keep the DB Planters floating on top of the ground, while wheel spacing improves residue flow. Wing cylinders have locking brackets for safety.

ROW CLEANER OPTIONS TO MEET RESIDUE MANAGEMENT NEEDS
Crop yields have increased through the years along with the amount of residue left in the field after harvest. At the same time, tillage practices have changed, including different tillage operations which maintain large amounts of surface residue, and even no-till practices. Row cleaners are an essential tool in managing this increased amount of residue.
John Deere seeding group offers a variety of row cleaner options to meet the needs of a producer's operation. Compatibility varies by model, row spacing and other planter equipment.
ROWCOMMAND INDIVIDUAL-ROW CONTROL SYSTEM
Controlling input costs and improving productivity are key producer requirements today. RowCommand is an effective, integrated John Deere solution designed to meet these intensifying needs. The RowCommand system manages seed output, reduces yield drag, and improves harvest capabilities on all Pro-Shaft driven row-units, and chain-driven MaxEmerge 5.
NOTE: Chain-drive RowCommand is only compatible with planters equipped with pneumatic downforce systems. On planters equipped with the heavy-duty downforce springs, potential chain interference may result and is not recommended.
SEED VARIABLE-RATE DRIVE (VRD) WITH HALF- OR THREE-WIDTH DISCONNECT
The seed variable-rate drive provides the ultimate planting productivity by utilizing one, two or three hydraulic motors (varies by model) to turn the seeding drive shaft. Hydraulic control of the seeding drive allows for on-the-go seeding rate changes right from the display mounted inside the tractor cab. Combine this seeding flexibility with the map-based planting option, and seeding rates adjust automatically based on a prescription map.
Single- or dual-motor systems for variable-rate drives are available for all John Deere planters except the 1785 Rigid Frame. Dual- or three-motor drive systems are commonly used on larger (12-row and more) planters and offer the capability of half-width or three-section drive disconnect.
The VRD is available as a factory-installed option for all applicable planter models. Single- or dual-motor systems are available as field-installed attachments for most planter models; however, a three-motor VRD field-installed attachment is not available.
CENTRAL COMMODITY SYSTEM (CCS) SEED DELIVERY SYSTEM
CCS seed delivery adds productivity through increased seed capacity, bulk fill capability and easy, thorough cleanout. The two tanks have a combined capacity of 2466.7 L (70 bu) on 9.1-m (30-ft) planters and 3523.9 L (100 bu) on 12.2-m (40-ft) and larger planters. CCS tanks are manufactured using a rotomolded, polyethylene design to ensure maximum durability. The translucent tanks allow easily viewing the amount of seed in the tanks. The tanks are separated by 54.6 cm (21.5 in.) for enhanced rear visibility during transport and backing.
The following crops can be planted with CCS: corn, sweet corn, popcorn, cotton, sunflowers, sugar beets, soybeans and sorghum (milo).
