Case IH is introducing a new Precision Air 5 series air cart to seed with the highest level of confidence. The air cart is designed to provide highly accurate seed and fertilizer placement and boasts next-gen boost capacity and AccuSection section control.
The modular metering system is appropriately named AccuSection, since the 5 series’ uses individual electronic meter drives, giving primary run control on a per meter basis.
“The new modular system is easy to use yet offers industry-leading precision and accuracy by metering each primary run on an individual basis,” Dan Klein, Case IH Crop Production Marketing Manager said. “This reduces or eliminates overlap to help avoid expensive over-application of seed and fertilizer.”
Other key design enhancements of the new Precision Air 5 series air carts include:
Greater capacity. From 350 to 950 bushels with larger openings, the 5 series allows operators to blend any tank with any other tank to cover more acres between fills.
Faster filling. The fill system for the fourth tank lets the producer load from the ground, and a new master shut-off feature allows for meter servicing without having to empty the air cart’s contents.
Reliability. Producers can trust corrosion-resistant tanks and meters in addition to a beefed-up LED lighting package for easier nighttime filling.
Enhanced flexibility. The new meter design uses a modular cartridge system, making it easier to adjust for different seed or fertilizer types and sizes. As an added benefit, simple-to-insert, color-coded cartridges quickly tell operators whether they have the right size for the job.
“Whether working with small grains, pulse crops, dry fertilizers or a range of seeds from canola and rice to soybeans and milo, producers will appreciate the durability, ease of use and improved capacity of the 5 series,” Klein said.
Klein notes growers of small grain, pulse crops, dry fertilizers, or a range of seeds from conola and rice to soybeans and milo will benefit from the key design components of the 5 series. Ease of use, improved capacity, durability, and more precision to match up with larger drills and higher-horsepower tractors will meet the demands of today’s producers.
