JOHN DEERE - 1705 Back
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.

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 181.4 kg (0 lb to 400 lb). Pneumatic downforce provides more consistent downforce throughout the range of row-unit travel than mechanical-spring downforce systems. Each row-unit has a single rubber air bag located between the parallel arms. The air bags are hooked in parallel so that air can be added or released from all rows at once from one location.
Pneumatic downforce systems are available as base equipment on all 1705 Series and DB Planters.
Pneumatic downforce with spring upforce kit option includes the same convenient, simple adjustment of downforce with up to 81.6 kg (180 lb) of upforce per row-unit. Dual upforce springs provide the row-unit upforce to increase flotation in softer soils. This upforce can also be used to counteract excess row-unit margin or extra weight cause by seed, tillage, or other attachments on the row-unit. Upforce springs will limit the maximum amount of downforce that can be placed on a row-unit by the downforce system and should only be used in conditions were adequate and consistent depth control is easily maintained.
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
