New Case Unit Provides Precision Seed, Fertilizer Placement

With two new patented features – a parallel link row unit and angled, double-shoot knife opener – the Precision Hoe 800 delivers the precision seed and fertilizer placement designed for demanding producers.

“Controlling seed placement is critical to a plant’s strong, healthy emergence and establishment. Seed too deep, and the seed may use up its energy stores just to emerge, or not germinate at all,” says Dale Simpson, Case IH marketing manager for seeding. “The patented parallel link row unit and knife opener on the Precision Hoe 800 work together to accurately place seed and fertilizer at the right depth, ensuring every seed reaches its potential.”

The parallel link arm row unit providesbetter depth control, better seed and fertilizer placement, and ultimately, better stands, in uneven field conditions and tough no-till residue, says Simpson. And, its fold-back frame allows for wide working widths and narrow transport widths for added convenience and efficiency.

The parallel link row unit maintains opener depth, from the top to the bottom of its entire 16 in. (9 in. up and 7 in. down) range of motion. Depth can be adjusted in 1/8 in. increments for accurate, consistent seed placement across the field.

Another advantage of the parallel link design is that it accurately maintains the angle at which the double-shoot knife opener engages the ground, preserving 1- to 1.5-inches separation between the seed and fertilizer bands for worry-free accuracy. “That’s key to precision seed placement,” says Gord Engel, Case IH product manager for seeding. “Because the relationship between the knife and the press wheel doesn’t change throughout the entire range of motion, you get better seed placement vs. a trailing arm row unit.”

In addition, the unique single shank design – which delivers both seed and fertilizer on the opener – reduces the number of shanks by half on each row unit. Fewer shanks mean better residue flow, fewer opportunities to drag residue and fewer stops to unplug.

“As residue becomes heavier and tougher with new genetics and higher yields, the Case IH single shank design excels,” Engel notes.

The Case IH Precision Hoe 800 is available in 50 ft., 60 ft. and 70 ft. working widths. All three working widths are available in 10- or 12-in. row widths, and capable of operating with tow-between and tow-behind air systems.

All three configurations have a 17-ft.-8-in. transport width, and a transport height of just 16 ft. 6 in.

The Case IH Precision Hoe 800 is equipped with ISO BUS electronic controls. Owners of an AFS Pro 600 monitor on a Case IH tractor can control everything, including the various drill functions and the fold and unfold capabilities from the cab.

  1. By removing the folding units, will it be possible to supply us one unit having working width less than 15 ft, which may be operated by 35-45 hp tractor on small Indian farms?
