Case IH has added a productivity-boosting, split-row configuration to its lineup of 2000 series Early Riser planters, with the launch of 2150S Early Riser front-fold trailing planter.
Case A 525-gallon fertiliser tank capacity – along with more seed capacity – enables operators to cover more acres between fills and make the most of their time in the field.
Built on Agronomic Design principles, Case IH 2000 series Early Riser planters are known to deliver exceptional results in tight planting windows and a range of field conditions. Now, the new 2150S Early Riser front-fold trailing planter provides the additional agronomic benefits of split-row planting with greater fertiliser and seed capacity.
Greater fertiliser and seed capacity
The 2150S Early Riser front-fold trailing planter features an optional 525-gallon liquid tank to provide operators maximum run times between fills. The liquid fertiliser system delivers accurate application rates at a broad range of speeds with multiple factory-installed application options, including frame-mounted coulters and in-furrow options. Plus, with 100 bushels of seed capacity (two 50-bushel tanks) and optional individual tank scales, operators can better plan for tendering with the ability to optimise partial seed fill.
“Staying productive in the field is key to getting ahead of a potentially unpredictable planting season,” said David Brennan, Case IH planter marketing manager. “Greater fertiliser and seed capacity lets operators do their jobs more easily — without having to worry about capacity concerns while out in the field.”
Multiple configurations and narrow row planting increase ROI
Studies continue to show the ROI opportunities of narrow row planting, which include increased yield benefits and faster crop canopies for weed control — all while minimising soil erosion. The 2150S Early Riser front-fold trailing planter lets operators take advantage of these benefits with a range of configurations, including 23, 24, 31 or 32 rows with 15-inch spacing, or 24 rows with 20-inch spacing.
In-cab hydraulic row unit lift control allows operators to easily convert from 15- to 30-inch spacing with no manual lifting or tools required. When planting in a split-row configuration, an industry-leading row unit offset of nearly 50 inches helps increase residue flow while minimising plugging opportunities.
Exceptional ground-following capabilities are made possible by a wing flex of +/- 15 degrees combined with +/- eight inches of row unit travel. This ensures the row units remain in contact with soil, even in rugged terrain. Optional hydraulic wing down force ensures proper seed depth control on the wings, while the agronomically designed Early Riser row unit provides excellent seed placement across the entire planter.
Front-fold design for simple transportation
With a front-fold frame design, the 2150S Early Riser planter delivers a narrow transport width of 13 feet — and a simple on-screen, step-by-step folding-and-unfolding system provides a smooth and quick transition from transport to field operation. Operators also gain in-cab hydraulic control of all rear sub frame row units, including the centre main frame row units.
“Operators should feel ready to take on the day as efficiently as possible,” Brennan said. “The 2150S Early Riser model will help them do just that. Better yet, producers can feel confident that planting is completed accurately for optimal yield results, thanks to an agronomically designed row unit.”
The 2150S Early Riser front-fold trailing planter is available to order for spring 2023. Tank options include the planter-frame-mounted 525-gallon tank capacity and a pull-hitch towed fertiliser cart option.
