AGCO Introduces New White Planters 9500VER and 9700VER Precision Planting-ready Toolbars

 
New vacuum electric ready toolbars can be fully customized with Precision Planting components
  • The White Planters™ line now includes two new toolbars, available to meet the varying needs of producers across the country for Precision Planting® technology in a wide range of row spacings and planter styles. The new 9500VER (Vacuum Electric Ready) Precision Planting-ready toolbar fits operations requiring narrow-row configurations. The new 9700VER toolbar is a stack-fold, wide-row configuration.
  • Both toolbars are equipped with maintenance-free, all cast iron 9000 Series row units but don’t include the drives, seed meters and various other components, so producers can design a planter to fit their exact needs. This prevents duplicating components when converting a White Planter to include the latest Precision Planting® components and systems.
  • The harness-free frame precision-ready 9500VER toolbar is available in three sizes – 23-row, 15-inch row spacing; 24-row, 20-inch row spacing and 24-row, 22-inch row spacing. The 9700VER toolbar is available in five sizes – 12-row, with 30-inch, 36-inch, 38-inch or 40-inch row spacing and a 16-row with 30-inch row spacing.
 
AGCO Corporation (NYSE:AGCO), a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, is bringing to market the new 9500VER and 9700VER (Vacuum Electric Ready) Precision Planting-ready toolbars within its White Planters™ line. The new toolbars meet the growing demand for Precision Planting® technology in narrow- and wide-row configurations. The harness-free frame, 9500VER precision-ready toolbar is available in three sizes — 23-row, 15-inch row spacing; 24-row, 20-inch spacing and 24-row, 22-inch spacing. The 9700VER toolbar is available in five sizes — 12-row, with 30-inch, 36-inch, 38-inch or 40-inch row spacing and a 16-row with 30-inch row spacing.
 
Both the 9500VER and 9700VER toolbars consist of maintenance-free, all cast iron 9000 Series row units, but don’t include the drives or seed meters, so components aren’t duplicated when a White Planter is converted to include the latest Precision Planting components and systems.
 
“AGCO developed these toolbars so growers can customize a White Planter with the Precision Planting components they want in the row width right for their needs. This is a cost-effective option to converting an existing White Planter which can mean duplicating some components,” says Tom Draper, strategic marketing manager for Seeding and Tillage at AGCO. “Being able to configure the 9500VER and 9700VER toolbars with the exact components and systems they want gives growers tremendous flexibility and potential cost savings.”  
 
The new 9500VER toolbar is equipped with a durable three-section, flex-and-forward-fold, 7-inch x 7-inch frame; a two-tank, 90-bushel, central-fill seed-delivery system (CFS); hydraulic lift and fold systems and folding marker selection. Two 45-bushel polyethylene hoppers are standard for the CFS on all 9500VER toolbars. The lids are easy to reach from the platform, and the oversized hopper openings make filling more convenient. Gauge wheels with equalizing walking beams, eight 12-ply tires and safety equipment round out the features found on the 9500VER toolbar.
 
The 9700VER toolbar features durable three-section, flexible, 7-inch x 7-inch hydraulic stack-folding wings and hydraulic fold system. The frame provides consistent toolbar height, maintaining row unit depth control across the width of the planter in varying terrain. Gauge wheels with four 9.5L x 15, 8-ply tires and safety equipment round out the features on this toolbar.
 
Precision Planting components and technologies to fit individual needs
 
Both toolbars can be customized to fit the needs of nearly any production system. Add-on options include the Bullseye, WaveVision® and SpeedTube™ seed tubes, the proven and reliable vSet® meter, vDrive® electronic drive system, vDrive Insecticide meters and DeltaForce® hydraulic downforce from Precision Planting.
