Kinze Manufacturing is introducing its 4700 planter, a newly designed 20-inch model for those requiring narrow row spacing. Key features include:
• Kinze’s latest planter technologies – the Blue Vantage display, Blue Drive electric drive and True Depth active hydraulic down force, which deliver industry-leading control and precision with ease of use.
• Three-section frame with 15 degrees of tool bar flex up and down for superior ground contact.
• 120-bushel bulk seed fill capacity with hydraulic weight transfer (standard).
• Industry leading 600-gallon liquid fertilizer capacity (optional).
Susanne Veatch, Kinze president, said the 4700 planter will be available for the 2020 planting season in a 36-row 20-inch configuration with the Kinze 4000 series cast row unit. In the future, it will be offered in 24-row 20-inch and 24-row 30-inch configurations.
“The 4700 brings technological innovations and enhancements to the narrow row market,” Veatch said. “Dealers and customers have been asking for a new narrow machine, and we are extremely excited to be able to share the 4700 with them. It brings the reliability and durability farmers are accustomed to from Kinze, with Kinze-designed planter technologies that make planting simple and accurate.”
The new planter was introduced at the 2019 National Farm Machinery Show held Feb. 13-16 in Louisville, Kentucky. For additional information, farmers can contact their Kinze dealer or visit www.kinze.com.
