PRECISION MADE SIMPLE
Farming today relies upon precision control for efficiency and profitability, but until now it has not always been easy to setup or simple to control. Introducing Blue Vantage™ and Blue Drive™ — both designed by Kinze for Kinze. The new Blue Drive electric drive system works seamlessly with Blue Vantage to analyze critical planting data to deliver seed exactly where it needs to be. The Blue Vantage display enables you to simply confirm settings on three screens to be ready to plant.
CONSISTENT SEED DEPTH - AUTOMATICALLY
From sandy loam and open fields, to packed clay and headlands — soil types and conditions can quickly change while you’re planting. The new Kinze True Depth™ hydraulic down force system provides row-by-row automatic down force for consistent seed depth and optimal crop emergence. Equipped with quick reacting hydraulics and an automatic control system, True Depth eliminates manual adjustment and frees you to focus on getting seed in the ground.
REDUCE PINCH ROW COMPACTION
Pinch row soil compaction causes more problems than you can see – it reduces the amount of oxygen and water that reach plant roots, reducing yields. The standard Kinze hydraulic weight transfer system automatically distributes the weight of the bulk fill hoppers across the width of the toolbar, potentially reducing yield loss due to pinch row compaction.
PRECISE SEED METERING
From the 99%+ accuracy of the True Rate™ vacuum meter, the simple versatility of the brush meter, to the proven design of the finger pick-up meter, Kinze offers a full line of meters to match your operation, crops and farming practices.
FRAME FLEX TO MAINTAIN SUPERIOR GROUND CONTACT
Critical to consistent seed depth, good emergence and ultimately profitability, is row units that can follow the terrain. With 42˚ of total toolbar flexibility, the row units on a 4900 planter maintain ground contact on rolling terrain and terraces, ensuring your seed is where it should be: in the ground.
RUGGED AND ACCURATE ROW UNITS
The rugged, accurate, and versatile Kinze 4000 series row unit delivers the crop emergence and stand you need. Constructed of durable cast-iron, and able to travel 12” vertically, seed depth is maintained in constantly changing field conditions. Various attachments ensure a quality seedbed for optimum germination
HASSLE-FREE SEED DELIVERY
The bulk fill seed delivery system significantly reduces down time caused by plugging and bridging, by suspending and distributing seed in a constant stream of air. With a blower fan as the only moving part, maintenance is minimal. Easy clean out, an easy-access platform, and quick-lock lids make refilling faster and easier. 120 bushel capacity with 16 and 24 row; 90 bushel on the 12 row 4900.
FIELD TO ROAD - SAFE, FAST AND EASY
The front fold design of the 4900 planter makes moving from field to field safe and efficient. It quickly folds to a narrow transport width of 12’, making it easy to navigate down the road and through narrow openings. And the exclusive, patented, hydraulically activated flip axle, available on 24 row planter only, shortens the hitch-to-axle length by almost 5’, allowing a smaller turning radius.
