Product Description

12-Row Bulk Fill

Compare refill times, row-spacing options, and bulk-fill capacities, and it is clear that these 12-Row Bulk Fill Yield-Pro® Planters from Great Plains are designed to make more money and save more time than any comparable planter on the market.

Simply load the onboard 82- or 150-bushel poly hopper and start planting. A 400-gallon starter fertilizer system, featuring a ground-driven CDS-John Blue piston pump or optional hydraulic drive pump for variable rate, may be added to planters equipped with an 82-bushel hopper.

The patented air manifold delivers air to the row unit meters for meter pressure on demand without using any moving parts, increasing reliability while decreasing maintenance costs and seed damage.

These planters are available in a variety of row spacings in both single- and twin-row configurations. Options include a variable-rate hydraulic drive, Keeton® seed firmers, Seed-Lok®, unit-mounted coulters, and row cleaners.

Product Features

High Flotation

14.9R46 R1 tires on the mainframe, coupled with the 19.0/45-17 wing tires, provide unmatched flotation for planters of this size.

CONTACT DRIVE WHEEL

Pneumatic tire is spring loaded to provide slip-free drive. Variable speed hydraulic drive also available.

Hemp Seed Disc
Hemp Seed Disc

New, 5-cell and 30-cell hemp seed disc that meters seed accurately.

Central Fill

The central fill system can be fitted with an 82 bu. or 150 bu. hopper for maximum field efficiency and operator safety.

Canola Seed Disc
Canola Seed Disc

Canola producers will appreciate the precise singulation and spacing accuracy delivered by the canola seed disc from Great Plains. The specially-designed disc is part of our already extensive list of Air-Pro® Meter Discs for seeding corn, soybeans, milo, sunflowers, cotton, wheat, and sugar beets.

Air-Pro® Meter

This simple, positive air pressure meter offers the highest level of singulation on the market today, and achieves uniform spacing by “dead-dropping” seed into the patented Clear-Shot® seed tube. Exhaust is discharged close to and directly towards the ground, not up into the atmosphere, earning the Bee-Friendly™ title. Gentle on seeds, it is more efficient than a vacuum meter and requires less maintenance.

25 Series Row Unit

The 25 Series row unit utilizes ductile cast parallel arms for long-term row unit stability. 15", 4mm blades turning on 205 triple-lip seal bearings ensure long life and accurate seed depth. Blades are offset ½" to slice residue and form a perfect seed trench.

Customer Testimonials

From Justin P., Illinois:

"When my neighbors ask me how I like these planters, I usually smirk and tell them the grass isn’t the only thing greener over here. I then go on to tell them how much I like them...and I apologize for sounding like a salesman. Having a decades experience with these planters, they are well-built bars with unique attributes that fit our operation great. These units don’t skip a beat — very versatile just like the Air-Pro meter. Very satisfied!"
