As you work harder to take advantage of market opportunities, you need equipment that gives you the ability to adjust on the go. The new 2140 Early Riser® pivot fold planter from Case IH provides the flexibility to keep your farming operation nimble and efficient.
The 2140 Early Riser is two planters in one. Whether you’re planting corn on level ground or soybeans in winding, rolling contoured terrain, this latest addition to the 2000 series Early Riser planter lineup delivers consistent depth and seed placement for unmatched accuracy.
Six available configurations feature ultra-narrow row spacing options combined with the industry’s most accurate planting technologies and a rugged row unit for high-efficiency planting. Designed to easily transition from an operational width of 44 feet to a transport width of 13.5 feet, the 2140 Early Riser planter delivers excellent ground clearance for unmatched terrain flexibility and a pivot fold transport package, helping you easily move from field to field and navigate tight field entrances.
Flexibility that fits your farming practices
The ultra-narrow 15-inch row spacing is perfect for no-till or minimum-till environments. Choose between even and odd rows for an extra 15 inches to improve productivity. The 2140 Early Riser planter is also available in 20- and 22-inch spacing.
Tool-free adjustments help you quickly convert from corn to soybeans. Then, with just a click of a button from the seat of your cab, the AFS Pro 700 display hydraulically lifts split row units to switch crop types — no more manually lifting or lowering up to 16 rows. It’s a real time- and back-saver.
Another productivity-enhancing feature is the factory-integrated furrow system. Specifically designed for the 2140 Early Riser planter, the in-furrow liquid fertilizer and granular chemical system saves extra passes in the field and allows you to precisely manage nutrients.
Unmatched consistency in rolling terrain
Improved wing flexibility helps you navigate rapid terrain changes without sacrificing accurate seed depth and ensures durability in any field. Seventeen degrees of wing flexibility, which means 21 inches of wheel travel on a 40-foot toolbar — plus 60 percent increased vertical row unit travel — allow for consistent seed depth in undulating terrain and terraced fields.
Hydraulic-assist wing wheels carry the load of the planter during headland turns, removing up to 8,800 pounds of weight from the center of the toolbar for reduced compaction, less rutting and increased stability. For even greater flotation, choose the optional Rowtrac™ Carrier System. Available for the 2019 planting season, this track system puts more square inches on the ground for a smoother toolbar ride and reduced compaction.
High-efficiency planting: cover more ground in less time
The 2140 Early Riser planter continues the accuracy, durability and simplicity found throughout the 2000 series Early Riser lineup, which also includes the 2150 Early Riser small front fold planter, available in 12-, 16- or 24-row 30-inch configurations, and the 2160 Early Riser large front fold planter, available in 32-row 30-inch or 36-row 20-, 22- or 30-inch configurations.
