White Builds Planter on Tracks

August 17, 2011
By: Margy Eckelkamp, Farm Journal Machinery Editor and Test Plot Director

As a result of a joint venture with Amity Technologies, the first planter in the market on tracks is the White 8936-30.

Built with a 12”x12” tubular frame and a 10”x10” telescoping tongue, the planter weighs 50,000 lb. when empty. The track system is built with 30”x67” rubber tracks that provide a low 12 psi when the planter is fully loaded.

For narrow transport, the outer wing row units flip up and in, to minimize machine width.
The planter is outfitted with two 75 bu. seed tanks, and two 750 gal. fertilizer tanks. The two-section wings flex 21 degrees up or down.

This planter is the first from AGCO to come standard with automated row shut off and pneumatic row-unit down pressure.

The display machine at the AGCO launch in early August was used to test the design, and the particular machine covered more than 1,000 acres.
