John Deere Stretches Planters to 120'

June 19, 2009 11:21 AM

The John Deere DB 120 takes planter widths to a new level. The 120' 48-row machine is built on a Bauer Manufacturing frame. With 30" row spacings, the row units are equipped with ProMax 40 flat disk seed meters. Plant up to 100 acres per hour with a seed carrying capacity of 125 bu. The planter does not have markers, so it has to be matched with guidance on the tractor. To deliver seed 60' in both directions, the planter has four vacuum motors—one for every 12 rows. The planter has a Category 5 drawbar and should be paired with a John Deere 9230 tractor or larger. The transport width is 14'8" and 50' long. List price: $345,000.
