“We designed the Flex Hoe 900 for producers who need a reliable air drill they can count on to get their seeds in the ground,” said Trent Nowosad, Case IH marketing manager for seeding equipment. “The Flex Hoe series of air drills has provided a lineup of proven performers for many years, and this new addition for 2020 offers the added flexibility, durability and productivity that producers need today.”
The Flex Hoe 900 is equipped with a proven parallel link opener, designed for exceptional ground contour following to ensure accurate and consistent seed placement. Available in 50-, 60- and 70-foot tool bars with 10- or 12-inch spacing, this air drill features a new, intuitive user interface, so operators can make quick, on-the-go adjustments with ease.
New opener for accurate, consistent seed placement
New user interface
The Flex Hoe 900 air drill incorporates a user interface with the look and feel that operators of Precision Air™ 5 series air cart and Precision Disk™ air drill operators have come to love. With the Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) Pro 700 display, an intuitive, easy-to-use interface controls opener and frame down pressure from the run screen and comes with five presets to allow easy changes for varying soil conditions — all from the cab. This new software emphasizes operator empowerment by providing them with the tools to fix any unexpected issues right in the field.
Built for tough and varying soil conditions
The Flex Hoe 900 air drill is built tough through innovative manufacturing practices, such as laser cutting and machine after-welding, which yield stronger and more robust row units. Advanced materials paired with durable components in all joints eliminates wear, while large-diameter chrome pins and sintered metal bushings are used on all pivots to increase uptime and reduce maintenance costs.
“When it’s time to seed, there’s no time for downtime,” Nowosad said. “This spring showed the importance of maximizing tight windows. With the Flex Hoe 900, producers won’t have to worry about fixing or replacing parts when they need to be in the fields.”
To further help producers cover more acres in a day and transport easily between fields, the Flex Hoe 900 features an innovative fold-back design and transports smaller than competitive units. For maximum productivity, producers can pair the Flex Hoe 900 with the Precision Air 5 series air carts and Steiger® series tractor.
The Flex Hoe 900 expands the Case IH seeding lineup and will be available for the Model Year 2020 season. For more information, visit your local Case IH dealer or www.caseih.com.
