New Residue Manager, Disk Mower and a Steerable Track Option for Planting

By Sara Brown and Anna-Lisa Laca


Krone Offers New Disk Mowers

Krone recently introduced a new generation of disc mowers, which includes the ActiveMow R and EasyCut R three-point-hitch units. New features reflect customer requests. For example, changing blades on the mower now requires one tool, a lever that comes with the mower. Company officials say the no-inner-shoe design reduces drag, so the mowers pull more easily and create a more uniform swath. The Krone direct drive system delivers power to the SmartCut cutterbar without using belts, which enhances the durability of the mowers.

Yetter Redesigns Residue Manager

To create cleaner rows for uniform germination, Yetter redesigned the 2967-180A floating residue manager and is offering the 2959-107 Precision Planting CleanSweep mounting kit. Both are designed to work with the 2959-003 unit mounted single disc fertilizer opener. The residue manager includes brackets to quickly and easily mount the CleanSweep kit. When paired with the CleanSweep, the residue manager can be adjusted from the cab. The 2959-003 features a 16" blade that opens a slot 2" to the left or right of the row to inject liquid fertilizer. The unit is also available with adjustable coulter depth settings for desired fertilizer placement and an optional spring tine injector. For more information, visit


Steerable Track Option Available on New Case IH Early Riser Planter

The Early Riser planter lineup from Case IH now includes the 2160 model. Available in 32- and 36-row options, producers can choose from four configurations equipped with the new steerable Rowtrac Carrier System or the traditional wheeled option. The steerable Rowtrac Carrier System features the industry’s first three-axis steerable track design, which company officials say provides up to 74% increased flotation compared with a wheeled carrier to reduce soil compaction. The maneuverable track design pivots for pitch, roll and yaw movement to create a smoother toolbar ride than wheeled carriers. The fore-aft track oscillation enhances ground contact and weight distribution on uneven terrain. Other highlights of the 2160 Early Riser planter include flat-bottom seed trench, two-stage closing system, rugged row unit built for speeds up to 10 mph, 26" toolbar clearance, a 60% increase in vertical row unit travel, factory-integrated Case IH and Precision Planting technology, granular and liquid fertilizer options, automatic and in-cab adjustments and tool-free crop changes.
