Kinze is infusing True Speed ​​technology with its new 3505 planter

Some growers with eight-row planters want fairly simple features; eight other people enjoy high tech. Kinze Manufacturing meets this high-tech market with its launch 3505 True Speed ​​high speed seed drill for the 2023 season.

This planter, which introduces Kinze’s advanced True Speed ​​system to this configuration, was unveiled at the 2022 National Agricultural Machinery Show in Louisville.

This gardener is for “guys who may have narrower rows and smaller fields, but have more of them and still want the technology,” Justin Render, a Kinze product marketing specialist, told AGDAILY at the show.

In recent years, the 05 Kinze series that changed the game has provided the reliability of the electric meter and the seed tube to the ditch – from 3 to 12 mph. So whether you’re taking it slow or reaching higher speeds and experiencing less-than-ideal jumps and other conditions, True Speed ​​technology won’t vary the distance between seeds and will not sacrifice other levels of performance. And operators are able to double the amount of acres they can cover in a single day, without compromising the accuracy or spacing of individualization.

Render said the new 3505 carries with it these top 05 features and quality, including the durability of ordinary units and vacuum fans that are more efficient. The 50 bushel of bulk seed filling capacity, along with liquid and dry fertilizer options, allows farmers to get in and out of the field quickly with 3505.

Performance is further optimized with Kinze’s Blue Vantage display, with shared coverage data and up to four planter-mounted cameras. Software updates include improvements to True Point, the addition of an acrylic productivity metric (essentially a speedometer), and the adoption of several diagnostic features to help growers solve any field problems they may encounter (such as PTO pump problems). ).

The 3505 also features Kinze Blue Drive electric propulsion and True Depth hydraulic force down for precise seed placement to maximize performance and productivity.

Other notable features include:

  • Exceptional seed handling capabilities with improved bulk filling training. Farmers can use 3505 to plant corn, soybeans, sweet corn, cotton, sunflower, millet / sorghum, edible beans, sugar beet and wheat.
  • Narrow transport and maintenance facilities made with double frame, folding frame with lifting and pivoting.
  • Improved durability, longer wear and lower property costs since Kinze 05 Series row unit upgrades.

Render also noted that although so many have been added to this gardener, the ability to see through the bar and have clean delivery lines and other issues make it particularly easy to manage.
