From the NFMS: Case IH shows off new 1260 Early Riser planter

Agriculture.com Staff 02/12/2009 @ 6:38am

Case IH is showing off its new planter, the 1260 Early Riser, which features several new benefits for farmers. Alan Forbes, product marketing manager for Case IH, says the three most important features of the new planter are transport stability, maneuverability, and frame flexibility.

Forbes says this planter helps farmers plant more efficiently and maneuver through the field. "The rear wheel axel allows farmers to get into narrow field entrances because now they are moving from field to field," he says.

The new planter also distributes weight more evenly when transporting. A hump in the middle of the planter, when folded, takes a lot of the weight off the front hitch and puts it on each wing. Forbes describes it as a planter that pulls like a trailer.

Show goers have been "giggly and are excited about the planter," Forbes says. "They can't believe how the machine moves."

The new planter is ready for pre-sale, but limited quantites are available.
