Amity adds section control to new air carts

electric drive section control system for air carts Amity
AMITY ADD: A new electric drive section control system opens and closes gates on Amity’s new air carts.
Amity introduces electric-drive section control for its new 3250 and 3800 air carts.

Amity, Wahpeton, N.D., has introduced section control for its new 3250 and 3800 air carts. The system can meter up to three dry products. It supports both single and double chutes and can deliver all three products to the same opener. Turn compensation is part of the section control system, too.

Amity’s section control uses an electric drive system and individual meters rather than hydraulic drive for speed control and to turn on and off. The electric drive is faster than hydraulic drive and prevents excess material from dumping into the system when the gates are opened. This is a particularly significant advantage with smaller and higher-priced seeds.

Section control retrofits for other Amity carts are being developed, the company says. For more information, visit
