Features

Electronic population rate control saves seed costs

Electronic population rate control (EPRC), in base equipment on the 1590 Drill, allows producers to adjust the population rate right from the convenience of their tractor cab.

The system:

  • Features an in-cab rocker switch to adjust the electric motor that controls the population rate
  • Is manually adjusted – the operator must hold down the adjustment switch until the desired rate is met
  • Can be overridden by pushing back on the motor to allow the producer to make a manual adjustment to the rate if needed.

1590 Drill seed/fertiliser delivery system

A long, internally smooth seed tube with a moulded elbow is supported at the seed tube support. From there, it is connected to a short, convoluted seed tube, allowing product to flow smoothly to the openers and still flex.

The tube flexes to avoid crimping for consistent seed flow. It is made of non-corrosive nylon material for long life. Long tubes are 55.4 cm (21.8 in.) and short tubes are 10.8 cm (4.25 in.).

Proven no-till openers provide excellent penetration with rugged durability

The single-disk openers are mounted on one rank on the 38.1-cm (15-in.) row spacing single rank units and on two ranks on the 19-cm (7.5-in.) and 25.4-cm (10-in.) row-spacing units. The single-disk openers provide consistent and accurate seed placement.

The single-disk openers are gang mounted and are hydraulically raised and lowered. The hydraulics also work to provide a wide range of downforce settings for the openers.

The no-till openers work not only in no-till conditions, but also in clean-till conditions.
