Using GPS, the SeedCommand system communicates with SureStop clutches to turn planter sections on/off based on field maps and already-planted areas. The clutch starts and stops seed flow by temporarily disengaging the seed meter, eliminating double-planted areas as well as the need to slow down to accurately raise/lower the planter at end rows.
SureStop clutches, designed for chain drive seed meters, install on the inside of the row unit between the seed meter and the drill shaft sprocket. Installation is quicker and easier than clutches that require drill shaft removal and an air compressor and tank. The SureStop clutch also features a sealed enclosure to resist moisture, dust and other forms of contamination, as well as withstand tough field conditions.
