JOHN DEERE TOW-BEHIND AIR CARTS 1910
BIGGER TANKS, BIGGER SAVINGS
The larger tow-behind 550-bushel 1910 Air Cart with hydraulic drives. Variable rate and hydraulic calibration are now offered as standard equipment, allowing for consistent drive power to the meters at all meter speeds. These features let you change rates with faster responsiveness. The larger cart offers 22% more capacity than our current 430-bushel offering. The larger 550-bushel tank capacity also means fewer fills in the field saving you valuable time.
The 1910 gives you a choice of using single-shoot or double-shoot primary manifolds. Opt for the single-shoot system for applying starter fertilizer with the seed. Go with the double-shoot air system for applying higher levels of fertilizer. It allows simultaneous application of seed and fertilizer by placing them in two different locations. The sliding handle on this double-shoot primary manifold lets you switch from single- to double-shoot in a matter of seconds.
With the double-shoot distribution package, one primary manifold is set for delivering high-volume material or large diameter crops into the top tubes. The second manifold is set for flowing small-diameter crops or low-volume material to the bottom tubes. This is especially helpful when placing fertilizer because it allows for separate placement of seed and high volumes of fertilizer up to 40% more product delivery per primary compared to our single fan system.
1. A convenient staircase takes you up to a stable platform. Lids are just 5 feet apart from center to center, making it easy to reposition the auger or conveyor from the platform.
2. Fill tanks in minutes. The 8-inch and 10-inch diameter auger and 12-inch conveyor feature controls on both the top and bottom. Choose the conveyor system for maximum filling efficiency and gentle seed handling.
3. A manual half-width disconnect is incorporated right into the meter housing. This lets you stop the flow of seed/fertilizer to half of the meter when seeding point rows, for example. It also allows you to remove the meter cartridge when tanks are full.
4. Efficient straight-through airflow lets you single or double-shoot with only one fan. The large 17.6-inch diameter fan provides enough air volume to reach 500 lb./acre. With AirPower2, two 26-inch fans help deliver up to 40% more product per primary than a single fan cart.
5. Primary manifolds with single fan 2.5-inch-diameter tubes distribute seed and fertilizer evenly to the secondary hoses on the seeding tool. Stationary single-shoot or stationary double-shoot primary manifolds are available. AirPower2 with dual fans gives you 3-inchdiameter tubes to help you push product more effectively.
6. Hydraulic drives are standard on all carts, offering consistent drive power to the meters through all meter speeds.
7. Get the tire that matches your operation. Choose turf tires for varying soil and residue conditions, and minimal seedbed disturbance. For improved flotation, choose cane and rice tires (tow-behind cart only) or 710 metric tires. Other options: dual rear tires, or large 42- or 46-inch single tires. On the tow-behind cart, select dual front tires for increased flotation. The larger tires also offer added stability when operating on hillsides, so you can perform over contours as well as you would flat land.
CHOICE OF AUGER OR CONVEYOR
As growers look for ways to increase efficiencies, one solution is to shorten the time required to fill. By increasing pit stop productivity, growers are able to cover more ground per day. Producers have the choice of an auger or conveyor to fit their needs.
The 254-mm (10-in.) auger:
Available on the 12,300-L (350-bu), 15,200-L (430-bu), and 19,400-L (550-bu) carts
Loading rate 1800-L (50-bu) per minute
Balanced for safe, convenient movement between storage and filling positions
Able to fit under the meters for tank cleanout
The 203-mm (8-in.) auger:
Available on 8,800-L (250-bu), 9,500-L (270-bu), and 12,000-L (340-bu) carts
700-L (20-bu) per minute fill rate
The 305-mm (12-in.) conveyor provides producers with a gentle conveyance system:
305-mm (12-in.) wide belt with risers spaced on 150-mm (6-in.)
1400-L (40-bu) per minute fill rate
Can also transfer fertilizer
Cleanout trap door at the bottom
Optional on all 1910 carts
The telescoping spout provides the following benefits:
Decreases fill time
Easily fills each tank to the very top
Improves movement when going from one tank to another, matching the tank height
THE METERING SYSTEM PROVIDES ACCURACY AND CONVENIENCE
A meter cartridge at each tank effectively meters seed or fertilizer into the primary manifold. Air carries the material to the secondary distributor for delivery to the openers on the seeding tool. Meters are contained in a cartridge for convenient removal and are color coded for easy identification.
A manual half-width disconnect is incorporated into the 1910 meter system:
Allows one-half of the metering system to be manually shut off for irregular shaped headlands, point rows, etc. on mechanical drive carts.
Allows the meter cartridge to be removed with material still in the tank(s).
Allows tanks to be emptied with meter and primary manifold in place.
STAIRWAY AND PLATFORM OFFER CONVENIENCE AND EASY ACCESS
The easy-to-navigate staircase and large platform provide easy access to tank lids. On tow-between carts, there is convenient front access to the platform, with step-over access when going from side-to-side over the front hitch.
EFFICIENT AIR SYSTEM ENSURES CONSISTENT PRODUCT DELIVERY
Secondary manifolds with 25-mm (1-in.) diameter lines evenly distribute the seed and/or fertilizer from the primary manifold(s) to the furrow openers.
Primary hoses are color coded to conveniently connect the air distribution kit from the 1910 Cart to the seeding tool. The 25-mm (1-in.) secondary lines used for seed are clear with a black spiral. For double-shoot air kits, hoses are clear with a green spiral.
The secondary manifold is made of durable, maintenance-free ethylene-propylene molded (EPDM) rubber. Features of the secondary manifold:
Rust resistant, important when applying fertilizer or treated seed
No tools required to remove lid
No long bolt in the secondary tower
Lid is tethered to the manifold
The outlet ports are numbered
Primary hoses are color coded to conveniently connect
Stationary single-shoot or stationary double-shoot primary manifolds are available.
Single-shoot air systems are used when seeding only or when applying a starter fertilizer along with the seed. Double-shoot air systems are used when applying higher levels of fertilizer, allowing simultaneous application of seed and fertilizer by placing them in two different locations in the seed row. With the proper 1910 Cart configuration, starter fertilizer can also be applied with the seed in a double-shoot air system.
The 1910 Commodity Air Cart uses an airstream to gently deliver seed and/or fertilizer to the openers. A strong, consistent airstream is necessary to keep product moving without plugging the air runs, while making sure damage is not occurring to the seed.
The large 450-mm (17.6-in.) diameter fan generates a low-velocity, high-volume airstream that carries the product to the openers. By using a high volume of air, there is less chance of damaging seed, while decreasing the likelihood of plugging the air system.
The fan is driven by the tractor's hydraulic system. It requires approximately 53- to 75-L/min (14 to 26-gpm) oil flow for operation.
IMPORTANT: The 53- to 75-L/min (14- to 26-gpm) is for the 1910 Cart fan only; additional hydraulic capacity from the tractor is also required for the hydraulic drive motors and for the seeding tool, depending on what seeding tool is chosen.
NOTE: Requires motor seal drain kit.
HYDRAULIC DRIVES PROVIDE ACCURATE METERING AND VARIABLE RATE
Starting in model year 2014, hydraulic drives became standard equipment on the 1910 air carts, offering consistent drive power to the meters. Hydraulic drives come standard with variable-rate drive and hydraulic calibration.
The drive system reduces a large number of mechanical and electrical components including transmissions, clutches, chain drives, sprockets, gears and shafts by replacing them with a hydraulic drive motor, electrohydraulic valve and a chain drive connecting the motor and meter.
Each meter has its own hydraulic drive motor and can be set independently of each other. It is recommended to use power beyond or another selective control valve (SCV) if power beyond is not available. Hydraulically powered meters minimize the pulsing effect found in chain driven systems. The motor speed is controlled by an electrohydraulic valve mounted on the motor.
Operators can shut off any meter from the in-cab display. The cart software comes with six pre-loaded rates for seeding. Map based prescriptions can be used with variable rates.
SECTIONCOMMAND SYSTEM SAVES SEED AND FERTILIZER INPUT COSTS
Controlling input costs and improving productivity are key producer requirements today. SectionCommand is an effective, integrated John Deere solution designed to meet these intensifying needs. SectionCommand manages both seed and fertilizer application by minimizing overlaps and skips while seeding with the John Deere 1910 and C850 Air Carts.
Owner benefits include:
Improved consistency of crop maturity at harvest
Improved consistency during emergence and growing season
Reduced seed input cost
Reduced fertilizer input cost
Increased time between fills due to input savings
SectionCommand is base equipment with optional deduct on all John Deere 1910 and C850 Air Carts. Each tank and meter will receive SectionCommand components. A two-tank cart will control sections out of both tanks, a three-tank cart will control sections out of all three tanks, and the C850 cart will control sections out of all four tanks. SectionCommand is also available as an attachment for field conversion (AFC) for all 1910 hydraulic drive carts. See AFC kit story for more information.
SectionCommand controls seed and fertilizer output by closing and opening gates on the bottom side of the meter. When the gates are open, commodity is metered out, and when closed, commodity stays and continues to rotate within the meter. The meter stays full at all times so immediately when the gate opens, the commodity can flow into the primaries and out to the tool. Since each meter section has its own gate, application rates and row-to-row accuracy are not compromised. The gates are utilized to control commodity output on all sections. Once the last gate needs closed, the entire meter will stop turning, stopping product flow.
For maximum performance, SectionCommand should be controlled through John Deere Section Control. Coupling SectionCommand with John Deere Section Control provides the ultimate in precision seeding and productivity. If a Section Control activation is held by the producer, that same activation can be utilized for SectionCommand.
WIRELESSLY CONTROLLED HYDRAULIC CONVEYANCE REDUCES OPERATOR PHYSICAL EFFORT
Operators continually seek easier and faster operations while seeding and reduce time spent filling and unloading.
Conveyance on 12,334-L (350-bu), 15,200-L (430-bu), and 19,400 (550-bu) carts is controlled by hydraulic cylinders on the conveyance arms. The cylinders move the main arm, swing arm and elevation. Now operators can easily deploy the conveyance system with less effort.
Input to the system is received from one of two remotes. Each operator receives a wireless remote that can be operated from anywhere near the cart and a tethered remote that can be operated from ground level near the front meter. Each remote controls the same functions and gives flexibility of system control should two operators be in the area during cart fill and unload.
The remotes can start, stop and control speed of the conveyance system. For added security, the speed control arm is retained on the conveyance and can override the remotes to slow down or stop the belt or auger.
Securing the auger or conveyor is now easier and gives the operator a greater sense of security with over-center latches on both the top and bottom of the conveyance.
Both the main and swing arms are longer giving operators greater flexibility in tendering vehicle parking locations.
1910 CART BRAKES
Cart brakes are an option with 430 Tow Between, 430 Tow Behind, and 550 Tow Behind carts. The brakes are required when using an 18.3-m (60-ft) N560F Disk Drill or 23.2-m (76-ft) P576 Air Hoe Drill.
The air cart hydraulic brakes connect to the tractors hydraulics through a brake connection at the rear of the tractor. Tow behind carts require an extension hose for the air seeding tool. The air cart brake system supplements the tractor brakes. The cart system senses when the tractors brakes are applied and engages a caliper on a rotor at each rear axle hub.
Ensure the tractor has a hydraulic brake port and is equipped with adequate ballast for the air cart and seeding tool.
AIR POWER 2 FAN DRIVE SYSTEM
Enhanced air seeding performance would not be possible without the updates to the 15,152-L (430-bu) and 19,381-L (550-bu) 1910 and C850 air carts.
For the wider seeding width, more fan capacity has been added.
Air Power 2 provides two independently controlled fans one for seed, one for fertilizer. Along with 76.2-mm (3-in.) primaries, more accurate delivery rates are possible across the full width of the seeding tool from opener to opener. Air Power 2 delivers high rates, up to 40 percent more product delivery per primary compared to the single-fan system.
Dual fans are required for tow-between and tow-behind carts on the 23.2-m (76-ft) P576 and the 18.3-m (60-ft) N560F. Each fan will direct air to one set of primaries. Two selective control valves (SCVs) are required for the fans. The fan speed will be controlled through the SCV flow control.
Monitoring the product levels in tanks has never been easier with the camera-ready feature of the 1910 and C850 Air Carts. The carts come pre-wired to accept a camera in each tank and on the rear of the machine. Cameras allow the operator to conveniently monitor product levels in each tank, which is especially reassuring when product levels are low. Cameras also provide the operator with visibility behind the cart when traveling down the road.
For the 1910 Air Carts, the producer has the choice of linking up to three cameras (CabCAM or Voyager cameras) to a GreenStar 3 2630 Display or up to four Voyager cameras on a Generation 4 4600 CommandCenter Display or 4640 Universal Display. If the producer wants to view more than four cameras, a producer-purchased camera display will be needed.
For C850 Air Carts, the producer can use up to four Voyager cameras on a Generation 4 4600 CommandCenter Display or 4640 Universal Display. If the producer wants to view more than four cameras, a producer-purchased camera display will be needed. NOTE: Generation 4 displays only support Voyager cameras.
