New ExactEmerge Retrofit Kits
Know what you get with an ExactEmerge Retrofit Kit? You get it all. The industry-exclusive BrushBelt delivery system. The high-performance vacuum meter. The dual electric motors. Everything. So that now you can turn the planter already in your machine shed into the planter of tomorrow.




Vacuum MeterVacuum Meter
The redesigned vacuum meter was built for high-performance planting, allowing you to plant the hybrid that's precisely singulated and bests suits your field conditions. That means a variety of kernel sizes and shapes, and no mechanical adjustments to worry about. Plus, our improved meter offers a new brush-style doubles eliminator that ensures only one seed reaches the brush belt to give you world-class singulation.

Brush beltBrush belt
The brush belt delivers seed to the bottom of the trench, matching planter ground speed at any desired population. This gives you precise seed placement with no roll. Brush bristles gently cradle seed and control them for superior spacing accuracy, even in rough planting conditions. For ExactEmerge row units only.
