19- and 25-row configurations
Redesigned 25-row model with improved transport dimensions
TruSet Active improves tillage depth accuracy and makes adjustments for varying field conditions, such as tire sink in soft soils or residue build up on tires, with no need for operator input
Coulters and closing disks now optional
IMPROVED TRANSPORT DIMENSIONS
Beginning with model year 2022, the 2430C Nutrient Applicator includes everything producers enjoyed about the previous 2430C, but with improved transport dimensions.
The 25-row, 19-m (62.5-ft) 2430C is available with a 4.3-m (14-ft) transport height (0.76 m [2.5 ft] lower than the previous model).
The updated 5.5-m (18-ft, 2-in.) transport width is 1.1 m (3.6-ft) narrower than the previous 25-row model.
The placement of the outer wings allows maximum working widths and low transport height under bridges and utility lines.
19-ROW AND 25-ROW SIZES AVAILABLE
The 2430C Nutrient Applicator is available in two machine configurations:
19 row 3.66-m (12-ft) center frame, five-section, 305-mm (30-in.) spacing
25 row 3.66-m (12-ft) center frame, five-section, 305-mm (30-in.) spacing
The five individual frame sections can be adjusted independently of each other. The operator can tailor the depth setting of individual sections to ensure proper product sealing and fertilizer placement even in compressed wheel track areas and varying field conditions.
TRUSET FEATURES, PACKAGES, AND DOCUMENTATION
With short windows of time to perform tillage operations, TruSet provides significant productivity improvements as operators can adjust the tool with just the push of a button, maximizing acres covered per day. By responding to conditions as they change throughout the field, TruSet Active enables operators to generate a higher-quality tillage performance within the first pass.
Using a GreenStar display, an operator sees real-time data for a variety of feature settings, ensuring confidence in desired tillage outcomes. Four customizable presets enable operators to save and name different combinations of settings for their most common field conditions, which allows for even quicker implement adjustments.
Single-point depth control is included with the TruSet Tillage system, giving operators the choice of automated or manual adjustments. Hydraulic routings on the tool are designed to allow each implement to feature both TruSet and standard single-point depth control for system redundancy, operator preference, and flexibility at resale.
With integrated TruSet Tillage technology, operators can incorporate documentation and prescription functionality into their tillage operations. The tillage documentation feature allows producers to capture and analyze the tillage pass for additional coverage of the crop production cycle. Prescription functionality provides producers the capability to ensure their tillage operations are executed correctly, optimizing their investment in preparing for the next crop.
Operators can document data for the depth of their tillage tool along with rolling basket down pressure. By creating an as-applied map based off global positioning system (GPS) data for the job performed by each functional area on the implement, TruSet enables producers to document their tillage passes then later review and analyze the data for future agronomic decisions.
Additionally, the TELUS Agronomy Prescription Creator company, a connected partner tool through the John Deere Operations Center, enables producers to create prescriptions for each functional area on the tillage tools. Data from previous yields, soil surveys, or freehand drawing tools can be used to create prescriptions that command the implement to the desired depth and pressure settings for optimum agronomic results.
ADJUSTABLE CLOSING DISKS
As the nutrient knife places anhydrous, closing disks bring soil back for proper sealing. Soil types, moisture, and residue levels can greatly affect the amount and consistency of the soil that is brought back in. The closing disks on the 2430C can be adjusted from a narrow setting of 220 mm (8.8 in.) apart to the widest setting of 430 mm (17 in.) apart for industry leading adjustability.
The closing disk system on the 2430C requires no tools for adjustability. Fore-aft and lateral settings are pin adjustable and have variable down force. This makes for quick, easy adjustments that allow for customizable settings to meet field finish preferences. For increased productivity and ease of serviceability, there are no grease zerks on the closing disks assembly.
The 460-mm (18-in.) concave notched blades close the slot and seal the anhydrous in the soil. The closing disks are designed with down-pressure springs built in, which limits bounce in rough field conditions. The closing arms have been engineered to flex as large obstructions (clods, rocks, etc.) flow between the knife and the blade. Independent up and down travel arms are key to the nearly plug-free closing disk. This allows one machine to operate in any soil type and eliminates the need to have multiple disk sealer attachments along with labor required to change them out.
PROVEN FRAME DESIGN
The four-rank frame design of the 2430C has provided unmatched reliability to John Deere operators for over 10 years and a countless amount of acres. With operators requiring faster working speeds out of larger implements, machines require thicker frame tubes, additional diagonal bracing, and frame gussets to endure 600 engine horsepower tractors.
The frame stretches 3.4 m (11.2 ft) front-to-back, which allows for high levels of residue to easily flow through the staggered row units ensuring higher productivity and consistent nutrient placement. The large frame member sizes, tube-through-tube construction, and wheel module placement adds to the structural integrity, providing a stable front-to-rear and side-to-side operation.
The open frame design of the 2430C offers the ability to mount anhydrous distribution and nitrogen stabilizer systems in different locations throughout the bar based on user preference and convenience.
The ease of accessibility to the maintenance points of the machine is achieved through 1.1 m (3.67 ft) of underframe clearance. This enables the operator to save valuable time while experiencing less fatigue for routine maintenance and service.

TRU-DEPTH HEAVY-DUTY CAST STANDARDS
The Tru-Depth heavy-duty cast standards on the 2430C Nutrient Applicators are designed for precise and accurate nutrient placement and offer 567 kg (1250 lb) of trip force to allow for faster operating speeds. The conventional standard supports the anhydrous knife on both sides, greatly reducing shear bolt failure when encountering field obstacles.
The ability to tow an anhydrous tank is an important component of anhydrous applications. The 2430C is equipped with a rear hitch capable of towing up to 11364 kg (25000 lb). Tank hookup is made easier by extending the drawbar outwards and side-to-side laterally. It is constructed of heavy-duty tubing to ensure reliability and withstands higher towing capacity demands.
IMPROVED REAR HITCH DESIGN
An improved rear hitch design enables operators to utilize tow-behind attachments such as an additional leveling attachment or field finishing tool. Side-to-side range is improved by 56 percent.
