Case IH is adding to its lineup of planters with the 2110 Early Riser planter and an updated version of the 2150 Early Riser planter.
David Brennan, Case IH planter marketing manager, was on site at the National Farm Machinery Show this past week at Louisville, Kentucky, to discuss the planters with RealAgriculture’s Bernard Tobin.
The 2110 Early riser planter offers a 3-bushel on-row hopper option, and is poised to help producers tackle regional farming challenges, says Brennan.
“For those growers that are looking for that tight coupled configuration of a planter, [it has] a rigid mounted design for bedded situations, flood irrigation, those types of areas, this is going to be a great configuration of planter for them,” he explains.
Some of the other customizable options include an increased liquid tank capacity for more tendering and filling efficiency, as well as greater acre coverage. The 2110 planter acts as a workhorse for small-field operations and bedded crops, including peanuts, cotton, specialty vegetables, flood irrigation, strip-till applications, and more. With a minimized machine weight and reduced hydraulic demand for smaller horsepower tractors, the planter handles a variety of farming practices.
Six-and eight-row configurations are available for the 2110 planter, in 30-, 36-, 38- and 40-inch spacings, while automated vacuum control offers enhanced efficiency and accuracy. A complete offering of in-cab control functions is available for either pneumatic or hydraulic row until down pressure, as well as residue manager control and closing system pressure.
As far as updates go for the 2150 Early Riser planter, Brennan says Case IH focused on prioritizing tank capacity, with full release expected for spring of 2024.
“We’re going to see a 540 gallon liquid tank coming out of the factory in late model ’23. And as we start building model year ’24 — which is coming right around the corner — there will be a change to our bulk fill tanks as well, helping growers see both sides of the planter, and both tanks from the cab, to better plan tendering.”
