Case IH introduces the availability of two new air drills in 50- and 60-foot working widths. These larger-sized Precision Disk 500 air drills help growers cover more acres in short planting windows.
“Case IH engineers have taken the best-in-class Precision Disk 500 design and made it even more productive with larger working widths and a five-section design,” says Dale Simpson, Case IH Seeding Marketing Manager. “Known for its accurate seed placement and ability to seed in diverse conditions – from no-till to reduced till to conventional till – the new Precision Disk 500 air drills are designed based on customer requests for wider operating widths to give them greater productivity.”
Growers can take advantage of faster fill times by pairing these larger drills with Precision Air carts. These carts are available in sizes from 280 to 430 bushels in a tow-between or tow-behind configuration or 580 bushels in a tow-behind configuration.
Like other members of the Precision Disk family, these larger drills feature a parallel-link row unit for unmatched seed placement accuracy. The drills are available in either 7.5- or 10-inch row spacings. Newly designed double-edged closing wheels, with three easy-to-adjust pressure settings, eliminate air pockets and ensure good seed-to-soil contact. Hydraulic down pressure across the full width of the disk drill can be adjusted either manually or via an in-cab display option.
