JOHN DEERE MOUNTED PLANTER 1705
AN INTEGRAL PART OF ANY SUCCESSFUL PLANTING OPERATION
Smallest in our arsenal, but plays a big role in any planting operation, the 1705 is a great selection for farmers, particularly those growing cotton, peanut, sugar beets, or edible beans. VacuMeter seed metering accuracy makes sure your crops are seeded properly so you can look forward to a productive harvest.
Available in 4-row, 6-row, 8-row or 10-row options with varying row spacings to make it an easy fit on your farm, regardless of your preference. Speaking of preferences, you can also add liquid fertilizer to your 1705 to help you get more done in the field. And add the optional lift assist wheel to complete the total 1705 package.
Plus, 3-point hitch mounting offers instant mobility for convenient maneuvering and transport. Two adjustable parking stands are standard equipment, making it simple to hook up to your tractor.

A 406-mm (16-in.) notched marker disk blade with a 102-mm (4-in.) wide depth gauging band is base equipment on folding markers. Notched marker disk blades are compatible with all tillage conditions but are recommended for no-till and high-residue mulch-till conditions. This marker uses a 44.45-mm (1.75-in.) square tube marker arm extension.
Folding markers are base equipment on the following planter model configurations:
1785 8Row30, 15Row15
Although not in base equipment, folding markers are available for the following integral planter configurations:
1705 6Row30, 6Row36, 6Row38, 6Row40, 8Row30, 8Row38, 8Row40, and all 10Row
1715 all rows
1735 all 12, 13, and 15Row
Vacuum is created by a hydraulically driven vacuum blower assembly mounted on the planter frame. The vacuum blower requires a tractor with a closed-center hydraulic system and a separate selective control valve (SCV). For tractors with open-center hydraulic system, a vacuum 540- or 1000-rpm power take-off (PTO)-driven hydraulic pump system is available. PTO pumps offered from the factory are limited to 15-row applications or less.
Different vacuum levels are required depending on the crop being planted. A hydraulic control valve lets the operator regulate vacuum blower speed, changing the vacuum level. On late-model John Deere tractors, vacuum levels are set from the tractor seat using the SCV controls. The control valve is not needed in those applications. At full flow, the system flows up to 18.9 L/min (5 gpm) per motor.
Convenient vacuum gauges located on the planter hitch give a visual indication of the vacuum level. When using a SeedStar monitor, the vacuum level can be displayed on the monitor. Consult the vacuum metering seed charts in the operator's manual for initial vacuum setting recommendations.
MAXEMERGE 5 ROW-UNIT
The MaxEmerge family of row-units have never seen a more versatile and efficient design until the MaxEmerge 5. The 5-family row-units improve productivity, increase uptime and lower the cost of ownership like never before.
The MaxEmerge 5 row-unit was designed for improved performance and serviceability. Serviceability and changing crops has always been a focus of downtime and potential seed loss. MaxEmerge XP row-units are designed with the meter and hopper as one component. The frame covers the meter so that it cannot be accessed. Cleanout of excess seed requires the operator to take the entire hopper off of the row-unit and to turn it upside down. The MaxEmerge 5 meter is accessible without having to remove the box. The MaxEmerge 5 design allows large hoppers to be cleaned out the same as mini-hoppers, simply by opening the meter dome and catching the seed as it falls out. This improvement allows operators to change seed varieties easier and three times faster than it took them on the previous MaxEmerge XP units and provides more uptime during the tight planting window.
SEEDSTAR 2 MONITORING SYSTEM
Integrated innovation--that is what operators will appreciate with the SeedStar 2 monitoring system and GreenStar 2 (GS2) Display. An increasing number of acres combined with rising seed costs drive the need to easily understand planter functions and monitor performance. It is all about making every seed count and that is what SeedStar 2 delivers.
The SeedStar 2 monitoring system is a full-feature, color, seed population monitor used in conjunction with the GreenStar family of displays (Generation 4 CommandCenter controls with premium activation, GS 2630, GS 2600 Display or the entry-level GS2 1800 Display). Conveniently, SeedStar 2 planting functions are fully integrated with the full spectrum of AMS applicationsguidance, coverage maps, and field documentation can be shown all on one display.
When a SeedStar 2 system is used on a planter, there is no need for a ComputerTrak monitor. All vital planting information is displayed in one central, easy-to-read location.
GROUND-CONTACT DRIVE WHEEL
The ground-engaging drive wheel system is a simple, proven, and reliable way to power the seed transmission(s). As the drive wheel turns, power is transmitted through a single-pitch drive chain to the jack shaft, on to the seed transmission, and out to the seed meters. Slip-clutch protected, spring-loaded idlers and steel sprockets provide a smooth-operating, dependable chain drive.
The ground-contact drive system has the following common features:
Single-pitch drive chain, spring-loaded idlers, and steel drive sprockets provide smooth-running, dependable chain drive
22.2-mm (0.88-in.) hex drill shaft and countershafts are used to ensure a smooth, consistent drive for the meter
Bottom shield to help protect chain from dirt clods, etc.
PNEUMATIC DOWNFORCE SYSTEM
Pneumatic downforce provides convenient, simple adjustment of downforce for the whole planter from one location. The amount of downforce applied is infinitely adjustable from 0 kg to 181.80 kg (0 lb to 400 lb). Pneumatic downforce provides more consistent downforce throughout the range of row-unit travel than mechanical spring downforce systems.
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.
SEED VARIABLE-RATE DRIVE
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 the prescribed map.
Variable-rate drive offers the following advantages over common, ground, or contact-tire drive systems:
Rate changes are almost instantaneous; no ramp up or ramp down of system as in some competitive systems
Permits the producer to match seed population based on different soil types or irrigation practices
John Deere design provides added operator safety by eliminating any possible drive creep found in some competitive variable-rate drive systems
