Make adjustments from the cab with the 2940 system
For today’s growers, the ability to make on-the-go adjustments to planting equipment leads to more acres planted per day. It can also help growers make adjustments that may not have been made otherwise. The 2940 Air Adjust series of products from Yetter, including the 2940 Residue Manager, Coulter/Residue Manager Combo, Firming Wheel, Rolling Basket, and the Floating Residue Manager Basket Combo, allow farmers to do just that.
Integral to the Air Adjust system is the Yetter-exclusive Pneumatic Hydraulic Control Kit, which hooks into an existing or new hydraulic compressor to control air to the 2940 Series product line. This allows growers to adjust up and down pressure without leaving the cab. The Control Kit’s small dimensions, only 12” by 12” by 6”, make installation easy.
With the 2940 Air Adjust cab controller, the easy-to-read digital screen and buttons allow for precise adjustments, making it convenient to change settings between different conditions. Down pressure can be increased to improve results in no-till and heavy residue conditions. In tilled soil and lighter residue, down pressure can be decreased to allow the cleaners to float with field conditions. The residue managers can be raised for waterways, end rows, wet spots, and more.
The in-cab controller also features preset options to which you can save up to five different settings. “Now you can make adjustments to settings with the push of a button, leading to even seed emergence and increased yields,” said Yetter Territory Manager Jared Head.
• Residue Managers – Height and down pressure on the Air Adjust Residue Managers can be adjusted independently from each other by fine-tuning air bag pressure. Parallel linkage arms allow the residue manager to follow ground contour, just like the row unit.
• Coulter/Residue Manager Combo – The 2940 Coulter/Residue Manager Combo is adaptable for various situations and fits a wide range of planter models. Air bags used to control the up and down pressure for the residue manager can be independently adjusted from your tractor cab using the digital controller. The coulter can be removed and the residue manager can still be used. 2940 Air Adjust Coulter is available with ripple (R), 25 multiwave (MW), or 13 shallow wave (SW) blades. The residue manager is available with residue manager wheels or with Yetter Farm Equipment’s exclusive SharkTooth® wheels.
• Firming Wheel– The Air Adjust Firming Wheel complements closing wheels by gently firming the seed zone, which helps create an ideal seedbed. For producers who are experiencing challenging soil conditions, the Firming Wheels create a more uniform growing environment and help prevent air pockets. These benefits result in ideal seed-to-soil contact for even emergence.
