Product Description

40' Stack-Fold Planter

Designed for the Delta, the PL5200 is a 40' mounted stack-fold planter that excels in wide row applications. This 12-row system can accommodate a variety of crops and is available in 36”, 38”, and 40” spacings on single- or twin-row configurations. The exclusive side-shift option allows operators to switch from twin- to single-row in under an hour. 

To efficiently cover more acres in a day, the PL5200 is available in a 50-bu. bulk-fill hopper or individual row hoppers. Producers can also choose from a traditional 3-section mechanical ground drive, a 3-section variable rate-ready hydraulic drive, or electric individual row control (IRC) drive. The PL5200 is ISOBUS-compatible and provides producers with simple, practical monitor technology.

Like the rest of the PL-Series planters, the PL5200 utilizes the 5000 series Air-Pro® meter, offering the highest level of singulation on the market. The 5000 Series opener achieves uniform spacing by “dead-dropping” the seed directly into the trench using the Clear Shot® seed tube. The 5000 Series row unit offers long-term row unit stability, accurate seed depth, and a variety of press wheel options.

With a clean frame design, producers can enjoy high visibility and maneuverability in the field and on the road. A shortened 3-point attachment improves tractor leverage, weight balance, and overall center of gravity. Lift-assist is an option for tractors with a category 3 hitch, though rear lift-assist is not required for tractors with a category 4 hitch.

The PL5200 is a highly accurate seeding solution with practical technology, making quick, efficient work of planting for Delta producers.

Product Features

SIMPLE SEED DELIVERY

Seed distribution on bulk models is handled by a venturi system without any moving parts. This ensures reliability and makes cleanout easy.

On-Board Seed Delivery Options

The new PL5200 planter offers you a choice of on-row individual hoppers or bulk seed with air delivery. The 50-bushel bulk hopper is located close to the tractor to reduce tractor 3-point lifting requirements.

EXCLUSIVE HITCH OFFSET

The offset hitch helps keep the row units centered on top of the beds and gives twin-row models the ability to convert between single and twin row spacings in under an hour.

5000 SERIES ROW UNIT

Utilizes ductile cast parallel arms for long-term row unit stability. 15", 4mm blades are offset ½" to form a perfect seed trench.

3-PT OR 2-PT WITH LIFT ASSIST

PL5200 planters can be optioned with either full 3-point mounting for tractors large enough to handle the weight or 2-point mounted with castoring lift assist wheels to help with the lifting and flotation.

3-DRIVE OPTIONS

Choose between either ground drive (shown), hydraulic drive or Individual Row Control (IRC) for turn compensation and prescription map planting.
