With the outstanding success of P2000 Series 30- and 40-foot disk drills, New Holland is now offering increased productivity with the new 50- and 60-foot P2080 models. These larger widths, which can accommodate tow-between or tow-behind air carts, provide the same accuracy and durability and allow operators to cover more acres faster. In addition, New Holland continues to offer the P2085 disk drill with a mounted seed tank, which is available in 30- and 40-foot widths.
"We are pleased to offer the 50- and 60-foot models, which provide increased productivity combined with industry-leading durability and accuracy," says Sheldon Gerspacher, Segment Leader Crop Production Equipment. "They're ideal for seeding small grains such as wheat, barley, rice, soybeans, and canola, and provide excellent performance at both ends of the spectrum, in both hard and soft soils."
The new P2080 disk drills feature the patented New Holland parallel link row unit, which is designed to slice through crop residue and provide precise, uniform seed placement with very low soil disturbance.
Even when seeding at higher speeds and on rougher terrains, New Holland's industry-leading parallel link design provides more consistent seeding placement for best-in-class emergence in a wide variety of soil, seeding depths, and field conditions.
The 18-inch disks cut cleanly through the heaviest of crop residues to ensure optimal seed-to-soil contact. On-row packing follows to ensure the best chance of fast, even germination. The scraper and opener design allows for consistent seeding depth across the range of operation. This is combined with a true 0-3.5-inch depth setting to accommodate all seeding depths with quick easy single-handed adjustment.
New closing system designed for tough conditions
New Holland's P2080 and P2085 disk drills feature an all-new closing system designed specifically for exceptional closing in tough conditions. In very hard soil conditions, the packer wheel does a better job of closing the trench to ensure proper seed-to-soil contact. In very soft conditions, it provides improved packing for better seed-to-soil contact, preserves more moisture, and leaves a smooth field finish.
The hollow center of the closing system reduces compaction while providing excellent seed-to-soil contact. Up to 100 lbs. of pressure is available. High flotation walking tandem options, which ensure maximum flotation in the toughest conditions, lower ground pressure and compaction for increased emergence.
Flexible frame provides unmatched depth accuracy and durability
Hills, terraces and gullies pose no problems for New Holland disk drills. With the best wing flex in the industry, the flexible frame design allows the P2000 Series to deliver precise seed placement over the entire width of the machine. The flexible frame provides unmatched depth accuracy, featuring 25-degrees of total flex for accurate, uniform seeding. Flexibility also dissipates frame stress for more durability than traditional welded joints.
Electronics, variable rate application and sectional control
P2000 Series disk drills are fully compatible with New Holland's IntelliView™ IV touchscreen monitor. The convenient one-page display shows everything necessary for operation. The Intelliview IV also features capabilities for interfacing with other various brands of ISO 11783 compliant equipment.
The P2080 model can be set up to accommodate the new half-width section control option now offered on the New Holland tow-behind and tow-between P1000 Series air carts. This system reduces input costs and increases yields by eliminating overlap on turn rows and oddly shaped fields. In addition the P2080 drill can be optioned with a P1000 Series variable rate air cart to allow adjusting seed and fertilizer rates on the go via the IntelliView™ IV touchscreen display.
