John Deere offers 10 different air cart models and configurations with total seed tank capacities ranging from 250 to 550 bushels.

OLATHE, KANSAS (August 21, 2014) – Weather and agronomic conditions can change quickly in small-grain production, requiring a seeding solution that can stand up to the challenges. The 1910 Air Cart from John Deere delivers this versatility to all types of producers, regardless of the crop, fertilizer applied, topography, working capacity or number of acres to be seeded.

“New, as optional equipment for 2015, the 1910 Air Cart is available with SectionCommand technology. This technology will save growers time and input costs, while promoting increased yields and reduced harvest losses,” says Ryan Jardon, product manager for John Deere Seeding. “Our results show that customers can save as much as 6 percent on seed and fertilizer costs each year.”

SectionCommand, the sectional control technology for the 1910 carts, reduces seed and fertilizer input costs by minimizing overlaps and skips. (The exact amount of savings depends on field shape, field size and setup of section control software.) It is just one of many features designed to meet the changing needs of small-grain producers.

Ten different air cart models and configurations, with either two or three tanks and total capacities ranging from 250 to 550 bushels, are available. Fertilizer can be applied through the same shoot as the seed or separately. Liquid center tanks are available on the 340- or 430-bushel-tank models. Tanks are a semi- translucent plastic, making them light weight and corrosion resistant.

Meter cartridges are easily interchangeable and can be utilized with a wide range of crops and rates. Each model features hydraulic meter drive, which reduces calibration effort. The instantaneous variable-rate feature means growers can quickly adjust rates when desired or when directed by variable-rate software.

New for 2015, all 350, 430, and 550 bushel carts now have a wirelessly controlled hydraulic conveyance system for easy maneuvering of the seed during fill and unload. Customers have the option to choose between an auger or conveyor system.

A wide range of front and rear tire options are available to maximize flotation and performance.
