ORBIT AIR - JOHN DEERE 1790|
Gandy Orbit-Air® applicator applies insecticide on 1790 JD CCS planters
Speed-compensated system with in-cab control applies precise insecticide rates from central-fill Gandy hoppers
You can achieve even more productivity and crop “insurance” from your multi-feature John Deere 1790 planter by adding a precision insecticide air applicator with the Gandy twin granular hopper and mounting package 6620GS24C. The mounting places the hoppers on either side of the central tank access and permits a remote mounting of the blower on the front hitch so it serves both hoppers and reduces hydraulic requirements.
Insecticide rate adjustment is controlled from an in-cab mounted monitor capable of having two pre-set rates, plus manual control. Governed by either wheel sensor or radar interface, the Gandy metering system ensures the application rate is speed-compensated so the rate stays the same even when your field speed varies.
The hydraulic motor controlled hopper and the hydraulic driven fan are integrated so only one bank of hydraulic outlets is necessary for the air system and applicator’s hydraulic motor drive.
The basic package delivers insecticide to up to 24 rows, each hopper each having an electric clutch to shut off half the rows in unison with each side of the planter for field finishing.
Hoppers can be ordered with covers die cut to accept Lock ‘n Load valves. Each hopper has 450 pounds granular chemical capacity.
Gandy insecticide hoppers feed up to 24 rows.
Either half can be shut off independently.
