Features

ROW UNIT

SETTING A HIGHER STANDARD IN PRODUCTIVITY AND AGRONOMICS FOR SEEDING.

Case IH engineering worked tirelessly through the Customer Driven Product Definition (CDPD) process to bring an all new row unit to the marketplace. The new row unit cuts residue, opens a high quality, uniform seed trench, delivers the seed perfectly, and closes the trench better than any row unit in the market place. And even with all those features, it requires less maintenance and utilizes less power to pull than prior designs and competitive units. This makes the producer more efficient, improves yield potential and makes them more productive.

PARALLEL LINK

  • Consists of an upper and lower arm that extends rearward and attaches to the sturdy cast row unit frame.
  • The cast lower link carries the weight of the 165 pound row unit
  • The upper link allows the row unit to lift and lower level
    • Ensures even seed depth placement in any soil condition
  • Provides the potential for faster ground speed and more acres seeded per day
    • Allows 8.5 in. of upward travel and 11.5 in. of downward travel for maximum ground following capability
  • The parallel link bushings feature oil impregnated copper iron alloy bushings
    • Don’t require grease, reducing maintenance and increasing uptime

DOWN PRESSURE SPRING

  • Exclusive to Case IH is a unique variable down pressure spring on each row unit.
  • Provides pressure on an individual row unit to assist the row unit engagement in the ground
  • Ensures even emergence and minimized compaction across terraces and uneven terrain.

RANK DOWN PRESSURE

  • Each of the ranks across the drill utilizes a cylinder to lift and lower the rank
    • Rank down pressure is also sustained by this cylinder
  • The number of row units on each rank are matched to cylinder size to minimize the differential pressure between ranks
  • The down pressure across the full width can be adjusted via
    • Mechanical knob adjustment on the down pressure manifold
      • Features a mechanical gauge positioned on the toolbar to allow the operator to easily view the current down pressure
    • In-cab adjustment on the AFS Pro 700 (or ISOBUS)
      • Features an electronic display
  • Available down pressure range is between
    • 200-1300 psi (30 ft.)
    • 200-1450 psi (40 ft.)

ADDITIONAL WEIGHTS

  • Additional weights can be added to the tool bar if needed for hard ground conditions and deep seeding depths
    • Could be needed in soil conditions that are no-till and/or clay based soils
  • Tilled ground typically doesn’t require any additional weights
  • Optional weight brackets are available for easily adding additional weights to both wings and center section
    • No more than 1400 lbs should be added to the center section
    • No more than 600 lbs on each wing
  • 100 lb (45 kg) suitcase weights are available from the CNH parts organization (part #: 86988727)

ROCKSHAFT

  • Responsible for carrying and providing the down pressure for the two unit ranks
  • The majority of the sub-frame and rockshaft is welded together for additional strength
  • Makes the frame more robust and provides superior durability over bolted joints

 


FRAME

SIZE, CAPACITY AND TRANSPORTABILITY FOR MORE PRODUCTIVITY

The new Precision Disk 500T Air Drill sets new standards in productivity and agronomics in broad acre seeding because of the new row unit and frame design. The Precision Disk 500T utilizes a mounted seed tank. Two different tank sizes results in more acres seeded each day.


HITCH

MANEUVER THE FIELDS AND TRANSPORT WITH EASE.

Case IH Precision Disk 500T Air Drill lets you be more versatile with a mounted seed tank. Maneuvering around buildings and shops, and travel across narrow roads and bridges without worry. Move confidently down the road with excellent stability during transport.

FRONT HITCH

  • The front pull hitch is a floating style hitch
    • Allows the disk drill to float up and down, independently from the tractor and hitch
    • Improves ground following and seed depth control because the hitch will not raise or lower the front of the tool when the tractor rides over a hill or obstacle

HITCH CLEVIS

  • A strong cast Cat IV clevis
  • For secure hitching, this type of hitch requires a 2” hitch pin

REAR HITCH

  • No rear hitch is available for the Precision Disk 500T
  • No rear hitch should be installed
    • Frame damage could occur if a hitch is installed

SEED SYSTEM - METER

ACCURATE SEEDING RATES.

The Precision Disk 500T Disk Drill's on-board seed meter provides accurate seed metering across a broad range of seed types. The meter itself consists of individual meter roller sections for each primary run and then the seed flow is split by a Y-splitter and is directed to one of two different openers. Each roller section is made from a durable polypropylene material that is able to withstand all types of treatments and seed coatings.

ROLLER OPERATION

  • Each roller is constantly exposed to the seed supply in the tank and rate is adjusted by turning the roller faster or slower
    • Providing accurate seeding rates
  • The Disk Drill is often (incorrectly) compared to a box drill
    • A box drill adjusts a gate that will block off more or less of the opening between the meter and seed supply to adjust rates
  • The opening between the meter and roller can be adjusted, it stays in one location for each crop type and the meter speed is adjusted for rate control

SEED DELIVERY

  • A single 6 inch fan provides all the needed air for seed delivery to the row unit openers
  • The AFS Pro 700 provides feedback on the air pressure provided
  • The operator simply adjusts the hydraulic oil flow rate from the tractor remote valve to adjust the air pressure rate
    • Proper air pressure level is determined by an open line test
  • The seed gently travels down the primary UV resistant tube to a Y-splitter were it evenly divides the seed between two openers
    • The splitter has three different position settings to direct seed
      • Front & rear rank
      • Single Run – Rear rank
      • Single Run – Front rank

SEED DRIVE CALIBRATION

  • The AFS Pro 700 provides the ability to quickly and easily calibrate the meter drives for accurate population control for each crop type.
    • The purpose of the calibration is to understand the amount of product applied by a given number of meter rotations
    • The process performed through a series of steps via a wizard
  • A calibration number is automatically created for the product being applied
    • The operator can change this manually if desired
    • The value is not saved between each crop type and must be re-entered before returning to seeding the original crop type

SEED METER ROLLER SELECTION

  •  Three different roller options are available
    • Extra fine
    • Fine
    • Course
  • Many crops can be seeded with each seed meter roller type but require calibration and validation that the correct rate is being applied

RAIN SHIELD KIT

  • The optional, clear rain shield kit protects the seed meters from rain and water in case the disk drill is left outside

SEED METER CHANGING

  • Remove the current door/meter assembly and install the new roller/door assembly
  • The assemblies are removed by simply unscrewing two bolts on each side of the meter
    • Seed must be drained from the tank prior to removing the meter assembly

SEED DRIVE

  • The single hydraulic motor provides the needed power and torque to turn the seed drives at the required speed for precise rate control
  • The sprocket combination can be changed to achieve the proper meter speed range for a seed type
    • 1:1 ratio
    • 3:1 ratio
  • Meter speed should be kept between 15 and 110 rpms
  • The built-in speed sensor provides the needed feedback to control motor speed
  • Rate control is easily performed through the AFS Pro 700 display
    • Choosing one of the three user defined preset rate buttons on the right hand side of the display will change the rate
  • Because the meters are hydraulically driven, they not be primed prior to seeding
    • A button on the right hand side of the display is available to prime the meter prior to field operation

HYDRAULIC WORK SWITCH

  • An optional work switch is available to activate the mounted tank seed meter
  • The work switch makes operation much easier because it automatically turns the meters on and off and starts/stops acres counting when the tool changes work position
  • If no work switch is installed, the operator must manually switch the meters on and off via a button on the display

GPS SPEED SENSOR

  • An optional GPS Speed Sensor Kit is available to provide ground speed via a DIA kit
  • Uses GPS signals to output a ground speed signal
  • The speed sensor is required if the tractor is not equipped with either:
    • ISO11783 tractor ECU (included with a ISO11783 complete tractor) or,
    • Third party GPS source (receiver or display output) that ground speed can be taken from

SEED SYSTEM - SEED MONITORING

SEEDING SUCCESS ON BOARD.

Seeding with confidence and success with this ultimately designed machine. Case IH designed this machine to handle the needs of producers who want to be accurate, efficient, and profitable. These features combine to create seeding technology that yields success.

SEED SENSOR

  • Every “secondary” run to each row unit is equipped with a seed sensor
    • Positioned after the Y-splitter
  • Able to detect both the small and large seed and provide more information than if the run is just “flowing” or “blocked”
    • Any population reported is an estimate of actual rate
    • The seed is non-singulated and the sensor is not able to count each and every seed
    • Proper meter calibration is always required

AFS DISPLAY INFORMATION - BLOCKAGE SENSING

  • Can easily be viewed by pressing a button on the display
  • Shows blockage of ever sensor

AFS DISPLAY INFORMATION - BAR GRAPH

  • Shows the relative amount of seed being applied compared to the other runs and how close that run is flowing compared to the desired rate (green line)
  • If a run is blocked or no seed is flowing, the bar graph will be empty

AFS DISPLAY INFORMATION - INDIVIDUAL METER RATE

  • Displayed in a number (lb/ac or sds/ac) format
    • To read sds/ac the number of seeds per lb. must be known
