Features

GREAT PLAINS ISO SOLUTIONS SUITE

The Great Plains ISO Solutions Suite delivers a simplified and universal ISOBUS-based interface solution that includes plug-and-play setup without the need for expensive aftermarket unlocks and subscriptions; access to remote support; and terminal extension capabilities from the field. This solution can be used with all Great Plains ISOBUS-compatible products.

180-DEGREE WING FOLD

Wings fold 180 degrees to provide a narrow transport width of under 10'. This fold design is simple, yet strong, and removes the complexity associated with units that fold by lifting and twisting.

5000 SERIES AIR-PRO® METER

Offers the highest level of singulation and achieves uniform spacing by “dead-dropping” the seed into the trench.

5000 SERIES ROW UNIT

The 5000 Series row unit utilizes ductile cast parallel arms for long-term stability. The 15", 4mm blades are offset 1/2" to slice residue and form a perfect seed trench. Blades turn on 205 triple-lip sealed bearings to ensure long life and accurate seed depth. Options include unit-mounted Turbo or fluted coulters, row cleaners, and seed firmers.

CHOOSE A PRESS WHEEL

Choose (l to r) wedge wheels that enhance the closing action by pinching the seed trench together or standard 1"x12" double V wheels for all-around performance. Spider wheels with a drag chain are the most aggressive option for closing the seed trench.

HEMP SEED DISC

New, 5-cell and 30-cell hemp seed disc that meters seed accurately.

HITCH CHOICES

Four choices of hitches are offered, including Cat. 2/3 crossbar drawbar, cast single strap, or regular single strap.

IRC OR GROUND DRIVE

Choose either Individual Row Control (IRC) or ground drive with a contact wheel. IRC allows variable-rate seeding and consistent in-row seed spacing, even on tight turns.

LOWER HORSEPOWER REQUIREMENTS

The PL5500 requires a lower horsepower (115-drawbar minimum) tractor with three selective control valves and 16 gallons (61L) per minute of flow, making it compatible with many tractors.

NARROW 9' 9" TRANSPORT

The narrow transport width offers producers increased maneuverability and easier road transport when moving from field to field.
