1255 Highlights

  • Pick The Hitch That Works For You

    Two hitch options on the 16- and 24-row Early Riser 1255 Planter:
    • Standard three-point hitch for general use with row crop tractors
    • Drawbar hitch available for tractors not equipped with a three point
  • Profit From Fertilizer Flexibility

    Range of available options for planter-applied starter fertilizer:
    • 400-gallon tank available on the 12-row individual seed hopper models
    • 600-gallon capacity for the 16- and 24-row on-row hopper models
    • 400-gallon and bulk fill seed combination available on the 24-row
  • Specify Your Ideal Configuration

    • Available in 12-, 16- and 24-row configurations with 30" spacing
    • Customize for your needs from just the basics to all the high-tech bells and whistles
    • If economy is your priority, select a standard mechanical drive, on-row hoppers and an Early Riser IV monitor on a 12- or 16-row planter
    • To plant by prescription and manage input costs, choose a deluxe hydraulic variable-rate drive, AFS AccuRow bulk fill seed hoppers, pneumatic row unit down pressure and an AFS Pro 700 control center
  • Reap The Rewards Of Maximum Maneuverability

    • Transport width of just 11 feet allows you to maneuver your Early Riser 1255 on the narrowest country roads
    • Ground contact tires (six tires on 12-row, eight tires on 16- and 24-row configurations) create a lightweight footprint for excellent floatation and exceptional ground following capabilities
    • With wings that flex 21 degrees upward and downward, the Early Riser 1255 ensures exceptional land-following flexibility
