High-performing grain drills

The 10HD Precision grain drill from Great Plains Manufacturing is available in 15-, 20- and 25-ft. widths. The drill uses a Precision Planting finger pickup meter to singulate corn and a SingulatorPlus meter to singulate milo and soybeans. Cereal grains are metered by volume through this same system. Prices range from $18,108 to $46,744, depending on unit size, row spacing and options. Circle 154.

The new 10HD feeder cup drill also is available in 15-, 20- and 25-ft. widths and with a 15-in. × 4-ml.-thick planter blade. It is equipped with a fluted feed-metering system on row spacings of 6, 7½ and 10 in. Prices range from $18,773 to $47,056. Circle 155.

The new Great Plains no-till air drill, model 3N-4010HDA, uses the 10HD series opener on a special no-till frame. The planter-style blades provide trash clearance and penetration and up to 500 lbs. of down force per row unit. The new model uses a floating tongue to follow ground contours, while the parallel linkage on the openers provides more than 10 in. of vertical travel. Wing flex is 12 in. A Dickey-John IntelliAg display monitor displays a number of functions. Prices range from $84,905 to $101,558. Circle 156.

The new 40-ft. CTA4000HD drill features the new 00HD row unit. The drill's features include cast blade separators that protect the planter-style seed tubes to ensure accurate seed placement. Prices range from $60,247 to $75,753, depending on the unit's row spacing. Circle 157.

The new 350-bu. air cart comes in a pull-behind model (ADC2350B) and a pull-between model (ADC2350). The pull-behind model may be used on Great Plains minimum-till and no-till implements. It features a semi-mounted cart-to-implement design that lets it float behind the air cart. It also shortens the overall length of the implement by up to 15 ft. The pull-behind model works with the 4010HDA implement. Both models are equipped with an 8-in. auger to load and unload the hoppers. The ADC2350B model costs $53,792, and the ADC2350 costs $43,286.
