CONFIDENCE IN RATES FROM ROW TO ROW WITH RELATIVEFLOW BLOCKAGE SENSING
With RelativeFlow Blockage sensing, operators can see the flow of both seed and fertilizer from inside the tractor cab. Sensors on all secondary hoses monitor the relative product flow row to row, giving you a better view of the flow rate of both seed and fertilizer from the cart to the opener from inside your tractor cab. This technology can help you identify any problems before a potential blockage occurs.
Blockage alarm delays can be set up by clicking on the advanced settings button from the blockage set-up screen. A blockage delay is how long a blockage should occur before an alarm is sounded. The blockage alarm reminder is how often the alarm should sound when a blockage occurs. The meter on delay is the time from when the meter is turned on until the blockage sensor should start monitoring for blockage. The meter off delay is the time from when the meter is turned off until the blockage sensor should start monitoring to verify no flow.
DOWN PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT FOR SEED OR FERTILIZER
Setting the opener down pressure is convenient and easy to adjust. The seed opener pressure gauge face is color coded to provide a guide for normal pressure operating ranges. The valve has two internal checks to reduce possibility of damage to valve when charging the system. The down pressure cylinder is connected to live hydraulics and extends or retracts to maintain uniform down pressure on openers. This system is compatible with either closed center or pressure flow compensated tractor hydraulic systems.
IMPORTANT: Tractors with open-center hydraulics require an open-center kit with change valve (order code 6505 to make the air drill compatible). The open-center application does not provide an opener flexibility feature.
ACCURATE DELIVERY RATES ACROSS THE WHOLE WIDTH OF THE TOOL WITH AIR POWER 2
If you need high rates in your operation, AirPower 2 delivers. With the dual fan system, you get twice the fans than the original AirPower. Plus, each fan is larger than before. So when you need that additional power to generate a higher level of input flow, AirPower 2 has the capability to deliver what you need. And the fan housing is cast aluminum, making it lighter in weight, but more durable than ever before. You can trust your fan system will stand the test of time. John Deere AirPower 2 system uses two separate, high-capacity fans one for top shoot, one for bottom shoot. Using both fans can deliver a total of 550 pounds (249.5 kg) at 5.5 mph at 15 degree slope of material per acre, precisely metering product into the primary air stream. The results: Greater consistency across the entire drill, more uniform seed emergence, more even flowering and canopy development, and greater yields.
There is a slide at the meter to choose bottom or top shoot for each meter. There is also a valve on the tank pressure system to choose top or bottom shoot. This same valve is used to adjust the amount of air to the tank to create the proper pressure differential. The arrow on the valve handle should be pointing to the top of the range for the top shoot and the bottom of the range for the bottom shoot. If the tank will not be in use, set the pressure valve to the middle setting to not pressurize the tank. The operator should use the gauge to find the correct setting. An electronic pressure sensor will send a warning to the display if the tank pressure differential is out of range.
IMPROVE SEED PLACEMENT ACCURACY FROM THE CAB WITH TRUSET DOWNFORCE CONTROL
TruSet downforce allows operators to set downforce pressures from inside the cab. Downforce can easily be changed by the push of a button as soil conditions vary. Proper downforce is directly related to a consistent seeding depth, which leads to improved even emergence, plant density, and maturity. The range of downforce adjustability begins at 74.8 kg (165 lb) and tops out at 181.4 kg (400 lb). Exclusive TruSet downforce control has taken adjustability on no-till John Deere seeding tools to a whole new level. Rather than using a valve on the tool, pressure control dials on the monitor let operators make incremental adjustments conveniently from the Gen 4 display inside the tractor cab. This also saves time and makes it easier to adapt to changing field conditions.
NO-TILL OPENER SEEDING WITH MINIMAL MAINTENANCE FROM THE PROSERIES OPENER
The ProSeries Opener is John Deeres most advanced opener for your seed and separate fertilizer placement. When it comes to seeding precision, consistent seed depth, and uniform emergence in virtually all field conditions, you can superSEED your expectations with ProSeries. Two of the three daily grease points were removed. The only remaining grease point is a yearly interval. The narrow seed boot travels behind the shadow of the blade, causing less soil disturbance. When attaching the boot to the shank, the bolt has been replaced with a flag pin. Now the flag pin is the wear point, not the casting, reducing overall maintenance. The seed press wheel is also redesigned; it has a narrow profile, a double-wall bearing, and is made of a flexible material. The quick-change blade feature reduces the time it takes to change each blade, saving time and money. Lastly, the seed tab is UV resistant and profiled similar to the trench. There is also the added option of the serrated closing wheel.
ProSeries Openers are in base equipment on all N500 and N500F Separate Fertilizer Placement (SFP), N500C, 1990 Central Commodity System (CCS), and 1590 Air Drills.
The ProSeries Openers:
Work not only in no-till conditions, but also in minimum or reduced-till conditions
Provide 51 mm (2 in.) of free travel in the opener before spring down pressure takes over
o Benefit: allows the opener to move over uneven ground conditions and minimize the chance of the gauge wheels bulldozing soil in soft or mellow conditions
o The opener spring travels a maximum of 203-mm (8-in.) up or 150-mm (6-in.) down before the hydraulics react to uneven seedbeds
FERTILIZER OPTIONS WITH SEPARATE FERTILIZER PLACEMENT (SFP)
SEPARATE FERTILIZER PLACEMENT OFFERS NUTRIENT PLACEMENT AT A 5 OR 7-DEGREE ANGLE
The 5-degree fertilizer opener:
Is required for liquid and anhydrous (NH3) fertilizers
Will also apply dry fertilizer
Opens a smaller trench than the 7-degree opener
Is better able to capture anhydrous and liquid fertilizer and seal fertilizers in the soil
There are four choices of interchangeable fertilizer tubes:
Dry fertilizer tube to be used with 32-mm (1-1/4-in.) secondary fertilizer hose from the 1910 Cart
Liquid fertilizer tube (for 13-mm [1/2-in.] i.d. hose)
o IMPORTANT: Using this tube for anhydrous may cause loss of retention.
Dual fertilizer delivery tube allows for placement of dry or anhydrous. If applying both simultaneously, the operator may need to provide a relief system to relieve air from dry tube for adequate anhydrous retention. Without air relief, the operator will need to adjust air plenum to restrict all airflow to SFP dry tubes when anhydrous is being applied
Anhydrous tube (for 10-mm [3/8-in.] i.d. hose)
o Liquid or NH3 fertilizer metering/delivery system is not provided by the John Deere Seeding Group.
Key features of the SFP opener are:
457.2-mm (18-in.) opener blades operate at 5 degrees, resulting in a narrow trench with less soil disturbance
Fertilizer tubes are interchangeable among dry, liquid, or anhydrous (NH3)
Closing wheel assembly is closer to the fertilizer delivery tube; provides increased fertilizer retention
Serrated closing wheels are base equipment on anhydrous openers and optional on liquid and dry openers
o NOTE: Closing wheels are recommended when dry soil conditions are common.
Extended-wear (chrome alloy) fertilizer boots are standard equipment
Choice of five different gauge wheels
Depth adjustments in 6-mm (1/4-in.) increments from 13 mm to 89 mm (1/2 in. to 3.5 in.) deep
OPENER FURROW-CLOSING WHEEL
The 25-mm x 305-mm (1-in. x 12-in.) cast closing wheel follows the press wheel to close the furrow, placing soil over seed or fertilizer after the press wheel secures the seed in the furrow.
A double-row ball bearing to reduce wear is located in the arm of the closing wheel
Mounted parallel to the furrow opener, the closing wheel can be adjusted laterally to allow running on top of the furrow for sandy or mellow soils or to side of the furrow for heavier soils
Down pressure is adjustable from 11.8 kg to 19.5 kg (26 lb to 43 lb) (no tools and three adjustments)
A grease fitting in the pivot arm provides free movement for the arm
SFP UPGRADE KIT
SFP scrapers can bolt a sealing wing to the bottom of the improved anhydrous (NH3) retention by reducing outgassing. It is made of steel and has carbide titles brazed to the edges for long life. The SFP opener closing arm spring will better hold the notched retention position. When selecting options for anhydrous fertilizer delivery, the SFP opener has a carbide sealing wing. The sealing wing agitates the trench sidewall and helps seal the top of the furrow with soil. This helps facilitate the binding of anhydrous ammonia to the soil, which reduces outgassing, keeps more fertilizer in the ground, and provides a boost to young plants.
