Designed with operator experience and profitability in mind, the new Great Plains PL5800 Planter delivers simplicity in operation and accuracy in planting. The PL5800 features a new 5000 Series Row Unit with an all-new Great Plains Air-Pro® Meter and seed delivery system to ensure precise singulation and planting accuracy, and excellent seed-to-soil contact. This model is offered with the optional Individual Row Control (IRC Electric Drive) to maximize yield potential and cut seed costs. IRC offers the benefit of variable-rate planting with turn compensation and section control and reduces maintenance by eliminating all chains and shafts. To provide proper singulation, a 66% larger seed pool reservoir, combined with a 92% larger seed inlet opening, help keep the meter full at higher speeds. Available in single-row and twin-row configurations, this front-folding planter also comes with new, shorter closing wheel mounts (on select row spacings) to ensure proper seed-to-soil contact and furrow closing while planting.
The PL5800’s frame has been simplified and features redesigned wing toolbars that supply meter air pressure, eliminating the need for a dedicated air manifold above the toolbar. The new, innovative dual-fan air system delivers a wide variety of seeds to the meters—even on difficult terrain.
To simplify operator interfaces and planter monitoring, the PL5800 uses a new WSMT3 Control System. The planter is offered with a Topcon X35 monitor, but is also ISO-certified so other monitors can be used. Like all Great Plains planters, Row-Pro™ systems are available to automatically maintain the proper down pressure on the row unit, giving producers peace of mind. - Less
