Kinze Manufacturing, Inc. announces they will offer three new planter configurations, new seed tube sensors and ISO electronics for the spring 2013 planting season.

The new planter configurations will include:

  • 3700 24 row 20” with bulk fill, Edge Vac or mechanical meters, and fertilizer;

  • 3700 24 row 22” with bulk fill, Edge Vac or mechanical meters, and fertilizer;
  • 3600 16 row Twin Row with bulk fill, EV or mechanical meters

This ISO electronics capability, or “plug and play,” will make Kinze® planters compatible with any tractors featuring displays that are ISO compatible, including those sold by John Deere, Case IH and others.

The new seed tube sensors will allow additional functionality, including the ability to measure skips and doubles, as well as singulation accuracy. The Kinze seed tube sensors also will be compatible with Precision 20/20 SeedSense® and Ag Leader® Seed Tube Monitoring Module (STMM). Ag Leader clutches will be offered on the 3200, 3600, 3660, 3700 and 3800 models.

“Customer convenience drove these decisions,” said Susanne Kinzenbaw Veatch, vice president and chief marketing officer for Kinze. “Our customers are very technologically-savvy and we want to offer them solutions that will allow them to be most efficient and productive.”

Pricing for the new planters and options will be available in May.
