THE MARTIN-TILL WEIGHT TRANSFER SYSTEM RE-DISTRIBUTES WEIGHT FROM CENTER OF PLANTER TO WINGS

For John Deere 1770/1775 12, 16 and 24 Row Planters and John Deere 1790/1795 16 Row Planters 

Excess weight in the center of a planter or improper weight distribution often leads to yield-robbing compaction, shallow or inconsistent planting, and reduced plant vigor. In addition, the natural reduction in weight that occurs during planting contributes to the problem of down force fluctuations that can negatively impact the accuracy of seed and fertilizer placement. Irregular soil tilth, wet conditions and bumpy or rolling terrain can also wreak havoc with planting accuracy, resulting in uneven emergence and inconsistent stands.

The new Martin-Till Weight Transfer System addresses this weight problem by redistributing excess weight from the center of the planter to the wings. Keeping the wings level and the row units in the ground will keep planting depth consistent through changing conditions.

By transfering the weight from the center of the planter to the wings, compaction and ground pressure is reduced.  With the weight more evenly distributed, uniform pressures and planting depths from the row units are ensured. 

The Martin weight transfer system consists of bolt-on brackets, a pressure relieving control valve, an in-cab control box, and the associated cabling. The valve and control system respond to changes in pressure very quickly, so the system is well capable of maintaining the pressures over rapidly-changing field conditions without a problem. 

• In-Cab Control Box—Allows for easy adjustment as you plant

• Bolt-On Bracket design (no welding) provides easy installation

• Interlocking tab and slot design fit together to transfer load to the tool bar

ELIMINATE PINCH ROW COMPACTION   

• Pinch row compaction leads to shorter, stunted plants, restricted roots and ultimately yield loss. Pinch-row compaction can have a negative consequence to getting crops off to the right start.

• Issues that can occur due to side-wall compaction include poor germination, non-uniform emergence, limit crop development and restricted root establishment and growth. 

• Restricted root growth will negatively impact nutrient uptake even when soil test values indicate sufficient nutrition.
