John Deere’s New 1870 Air Seeder

Cody Wilkinson, product specialist at John Deere, talks about key features of the new John Deere 1870 Air Hoe Drill including cutting edge RelativeFlow™ blockage software that alerts you of blockage in real time.

As the latest addition to the 1870 Air Seeder lineup, which includes the 40-foot and 56-foot models, the new 76-foot model incorporates many features to support better seed placement, improve fertilizer placement and increase productivity.

This 76-foot, five-section seeder has 12-inch row spacing compatible with 430-bushel tow-between and 430- or 550-bushel tow-behind John Deere seed carts. With increased frame height and spacing between each rank (almost 20 inches more space than other competitive models), operators can move residue and eliminate clogging.
