Product Description

8-Row 3-Point Mounted Yield-Pro® Planter

They say good things often come in small packages, and that is certainly the case with the 8-Row Yield-Pro® Planters from Great Plains. Believing it was time to provide smaller farmers access to the yield-increasing technologies offered in our larger planters, our engineers designed three models around the Air-Pro® Metering System, giving these compact planters a new level of spacing and seed placement accuracy.*

For added versatility, the 8-Row Yield-Pro Planters can be configured with either standard single rows or our innovative Twin-Row design on 30", 36", 38", or 40" spacing.

Like their larger Yield-Pro counterparts, the 8-row models each utilize the 25 Series Row Unit for greater accuracy, longer life, and easier maintenance than most competitive row units. Not only does the unit come with a broad selection of clear seed discs to handle a variety of different seeds, but customers also have a choice of press wheels to match every operation and planting style. A hydraulic fan provides positive air to the Air-Pro® Meters for exceptional accuracy. Four-inch manifolds and proportional metering rings ensure the same pressure to each row unit without the worry of air leaks.

* Lab results with Air-Pro® Meter and Clear-Shot® Seed Tube combination metering medium round seeds.
