At the 2008 National Farm Machinery Show Kinze gave us a first look at their Air Seed Delivery System (ASD). This year, they displayed two planters outfitted with the ASD system.
The 3660 ASD Twin-Line planter
is outfitted with two centrally mounted, 55-bu. hoppers. The three-section toolbar allows for 13 degree wing flex up or down with hydraulic wing down-pressure system. The 3660 features integrated EdgeVac vacuum manifolds and air tanks in the toolbar, and the under-hitch clearance has improved with an additional 8". The planter can be paired with either the Kinze Vision or Kinze Cobalt monitors, and the planter can be equipped with air-actuated single row clutches for automated or manual shut-off of rows.
The 3800 ASD
will be available for planting season 2010. This 24-row 30" spacing planter is built with two centrally mounted 55 bu. hopper with the ASD system. The planter can be used with the Kinze Vision or Kinze Cobalt monitoring systems. It features a dual motor variable rate hydraulic driveline. The toolbar frame is segmented with three-sections and the machines has a dedicated transport axle with four Super Single transport tires. An optional 500-gal. liquid fertilizer package is available as well as air-actuated single row clutches for automatic or manual shut-off of rows.
