Ag Leader Enters Planter Clutch Market

February 11, 2009 07:59 AM

AgLeader's new clutch, the SureStop, is an electric clutch for automated row shut off.


Ag Leader Technology, Inc. introduced the SureStop electric row clutch for row crop planters.
SureStop clutches are designed for chain drive seed meters and install on the inside of the row unit between the seed meter and the drill shaft sprocket. The electric clutches require a 12-volt power supply but not an air compressor tank.
SureStop clutches are a component of Ag Leader's SeedCommand system, which uses GPS to turn planter sections on/off based on field maps and planted areas. The system is compatible with the Edge or Vision displays. The SeedCommand system can control up to 36 sections. Ag Leader will sell customized installation kits for its customers, which includes the clutch, wiring harness and two precut chains.
