Kinze Introduces Industry’s First for Planters

October 11, 2009 07:05 AM
Kinze Manufacturing has become the first planter manufacturer to offer a scale package as a factory option on all Air Seed Delivery (ASD) planters in its 2010 product line.  

Kinze will offer Digi-Star scales on its ASD row-crop. The scale package features the following: three 1,500 lb. Digi-Star load cells per tank (six total), platform-mounted display installed near the planter's ASD tanks for easy use when loading tanks, wiring and cabling, as needed.
The scale package option will provide corn, soybean and other row-crop producers an important management tool to help them improve planting efficiency and seed management.
The display shows the gross and individual weight of tanks and allows the grower to input the number of seeds per pound and the population data. Operators can easily see the number of acres to empty in each tank and an overall total.
The Kinze-supplied planter scale integrates with the in-cab Kinze Vision system, so growers have the convenience of seeing both the number of acres until empty and individual tank weights from their tractor seat.
