Kinze Releases New 5670 Split Row Planter

Packed with Innovative Features for Increased Efficiency

Kinze Manufacturing introduces 5670, its newest innovation in split row planting technology.  

This feature-rich planter boasts a new toolbar design with increased height for better residue flow. The 5670 also introduces a new push row unit configuration, building upon Kinze's over 40 years of experience in this area. 

Brad Niensteadt, Senior Product Specialist with Kinze, says the planter is available in two configurations: 12/23 and 16/31. The 12-row configuration offers a bulk fill capacity of 80 bushels, while the 16-row option provides a generous 120 bushels of seed capacity. 

Niensteadt says that a significant addition to the 5670 is the factory-installed liquid fertilizer option with 300 gallons for the 12 and 16-row configurations. This innovative system allows for application rates between two and 25 gallons per acre at speeds ranging from three to 12 miles per hour. 

Another key feature according to Niensteadt is the automatic tank leveling system, which prevents fertilizer overflow on uneven terrain. This system automatically transfers fertilizer from the lower tank to the higher tank, ensuring efficient application. 

The 5670 offers a wide range of additional options, including Blue Vantage controlled air- adjustable row cleaners, pneumatic closing wheels, and various fertilizer opener configurations. Notably, the 5670 is the first Kinze planter with bulk seed to feature two by two fertilizer openers for split row application. 

Kinze has equipped the 5670 with several standard features to minimize maintenance requirements. These include double bushing parallel arms, shimless greaseless gauge wheel arms, and standard spool gauge wheels.  

The standard variable displacement PTO pump ensures compatibility with most tractors, requiring only two remotes for operation. 

With its innovative design, advanced features, and user-friendly operation, the Kinze 5670 promises to be an asset for farmers seeking to optimize their split row planting operations.
