Case IH recently introduced Precision Air 5 series air carts designed to get more from the plant’s potential through highly accurate seed and fertilizer placement.
The air carts boost capacity and use AccuSection section control technology to help producers do more work in less time - and seed with more confidence.
The 5 series’ modular metering control system provides accuracy of seed and fertilizer placement. The AccuSection technology uses individual electronic meter drives to provide primary run control on a per meter basis.
The company says the new modular system is easy to use yet offers precision and accuracy by metering each primary run on an individual basis. This reduces or eliminates overlap to help avoid expensive over-application of seed and fertilizer.
In addition to larger tanks (from 350 to 950 bushels) with larger openings, the 5 series allows operators to blend a tank with any other tank to cover more acres between fills.
A new over-center tank lid-lock configuration ensures a tight seal while a durable folding stairway system with slip-resistant treads provides easier access.
A fill system for the fourth tank allows the producer load from the ground level without having to climb stairs, and a new master shut-off feature allows for meter servicing without having to empty the air cart’s contents.
