With the same quality and innovation as other Great Plains planters, the PL5500 gives producers a simple, 8-row wing-fold planter with narrow-transport capabilities. A transport width of 9' 9" provides easy and safe maneuverability of the planter from field to field and only requires 115-drawbar horsepower (minimum) to pull, making it compatible with a wide range of tractors.
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.
