Too Early to Think About Planting? Think Again.

Take care of planter maintenance now so you’ll be ready when your fields are.

There may be no worse feeling than having fields that are ready and a planter that is not. You can avoid those pangs by getting your planter in shape now.

To reap the benefits of full-season hybrids, you have to be ready to roll once the planting window opens. And ready to roll doesn’t mean pulling the planter out of the shed to fix the maintenance issues you noted when you parked it last spring. Sure, you need to make those repairs. But take the extra steps to thoroughly inspect your planter. You’ll likely head off emerging problems before they stop your progress at the peak of planting season.

Start by visiting your Case IH dealer or the Case IH Be Red and Ready Productivity Hub. You’ll find a planter page loaded with the information you need to ensure your equipment is field ready, including:

  • A dozen video tips for maintaining and adjusting the most critical components of your planter
  • A four-part planter maintenance series covering topics from the bulk hopper to the advanced seed meter
  • Downloadable productivity guides — including access to maintenance checklists and parts catalogs — for precision disk drills and conventional planters

If you want to give your crops the best start possible, it’s not too late to upgrade your planter technology. Through our partnership with Precision Planting®, Case IH gives you the ability to pair our Early Riser® planter — and its best-in-the-industry row unit — with the latest technology from Precision Planting. Best of all, we give you the flexibility to customize your planter precisely how you want.

But before you head to the shop, be sure to check out our Be Red and Ready Maintenance Event. You’ll find all kinds of great offers on genuine Case IH parts and expert service — exactly what you need to hit the field at full horsepower this spring, whether it’s early, late or sometime in between.

    Will these precision units be able to be put on a 1250 planter. What is all involved and what would a price be. Thanks Craig

      You’ll need to check with your local dealer, but there are special factory deduct options presently on the 1255 and 1245 series.
