JOHN DEERE MOUNTED PLANTER 1715
THE PERFECT VERTICAL-FOLD PLANTER TO HELP PROFITS CLIMB
Are you a peanut farmer looking for ways to save while still getting the productivity you need from your planter? Maybe youre a cotton grower who needs to shed costs, wherever possible, from field to gin. Well, check out the economical 1715 Vertical-Fold Planter.
Peanuts, cotton, and more the 1715 is a simpler, more affordable option to get your seed in the ground. This 12-row machine plants on 30-inch or 70-centimer row spacing with three-section flexibility to maintain accurate seed depth over rolling ground and terraces.
Vertical-fold capability lets you close the wings hydraulically. Then just lock them in place and you can go from field to field in no time. If your path takes you through tight quarters, the vertical fold offers narrower transport width than a rigid frame, and a flex feature of 8 degrees up and 6.5 degrees down so you can easily work rolling ground and terraced fields.
12 rows with 30-in or 70-cm spacing
Available in 1.6-bu. or 3-bu. MaxEmerge 5 row unit
Insecticide option for 1.6-bu.
Requires a tractor horsepower range of 115 to 200
SEEDSTAR 2 MONITORING SYSTEM
Integrated innovation is what operators will appreciate with the SeedStar 2 monitoring system and GreenStar 2 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. SeedStar 2 is compatible with the GreenStar 2 1800 and 2600 Displays, GreenStar 3 2630 Display, the Gen 4 4200 CommandCenter Display, the Gen 4 4600 CommandCenter Display, the 4240 Universal Display, and the 4640 Universal Display. SeedStar 2 is not compatible with the Gen 4 Extended Monitor. Conveniently, SeedStar 2 planting functions are fully integrated with the full spectrum of Precision Ag Technology 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.
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 181.4 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.
1715 FRAME PROVIDES ECONOMICAL NARROW TRANSPORT
The 1715 Integral Planter wings fold vertically for narrow transport. Wing row unit hoppers must be emptied for transport. Vertical-fold planters have four wheels mounted to the rear of the frame. The 1715 Planter is base-equipped with two centerframe drive wheels. Optional drive by two center and two wing wheels is available and required when wings are pinned for rigid operation. Wings fold hydraulically and are manually locked up for transport. Frame will flex 8 degrees up and 6 degrees down to follow rolling ground and conform to terraces. Wings can be pinned rigid when planting on beds or flatland.
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 (shown on the left) 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 (shown on the right) 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.
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.
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.
