The Heart Of The Planter.
How it Works
A
1. Low-pressure positive air enters the seed meter.
2. Seeds are held in each seed cell by the gentle air pressure.
3. The seed meter’s one moving part, the seed disc, rotates counterclockwise with a
seed retained in each cell. Abrasive steel fingers which can cause damage to fragile
seed are not used.
4. As the cell reaches the tickler brush, excess seed is removed from the cell if more
than one seed is present.
5. When the seed advances around the meter, the air cutoff brush gently shuts off the air
and holds the seed in place until reaching the bottom of the seed disc rotation.
6. The exclusive EDGE DROP design of the seed disc gently releases the seed,
allowing it to free-fall naturally into the seed tube at regular intervals as accurately H
and consistently as gravity itself.
7. Seed is released in a slight rearward motion permitting the seed to be oriented
rearward and fall down the curved seed tube into the seed trench. C

Seed Meter Design

1. One Meter, Many Crops


- White Planters plant nearly any row crop: corn, soybeans, nato beans, sunflowers, B
I
edible beans, snap beans, cotton, milo, sugar beets, sorghum, or peanuts.
2. Positive Air Design Means No Seals to Maintain
- The exclusive design of the positive air metering system completely eliminates
the need to annually maintain seals.
3. Zero Maintenance Guarantee
- Perform routine seed meter care and cleaning of the seed meter and if replacement
parts are required in the metering system during the first three years of operation,
White Planters will supply the parts at no charge. That’s confidence!

Available in rigid or flex frame models, the 8200 Series is


offered in a 12-row 30" configuration. The ground-driven seed
rate transmission provides a wide range of seeding rates.

Row-unit-mounted tillage attachments can be added to


prepare a seed zone ahead of the double disc openers. The
tillage coulters cut residue and prepare a seed zone to speed
soil warm-up and enhance germination rates.

The 8200 Series is equipped with hydraulic wing fold

A Frame That Hugs The Ground. 8200 Series Wing Fold Planter
The 8200 Series flex frame model hinges at the center,
enabling each wing to flex a full 10 degrees. This enables the
frame to flex a full 20 degrees up or down, hugging rolling
terrain and terraces. If flexibility is not a requirement on your
ground, the 8200 Series is available in a rigid frame model
with the same full range of features and attachments.

Row Unit Flexibility


The 8200 Series wing fold planters are designed to accept
row-unit-mounted tillage and granular chemical attachments.
Optional 3-bushel (0.11 m3) hoppers provide a full 50% more
planting time between fill-ups.

Independent Wing Transmission


Each half of the flex frame planter features an independent
transmission. Thirty-two seed rate settings are made in the Wing Fold Sequence
transmission by moving the sprockets. The wings quickly fold forward for convenient transport to the next field. Horizontal wing folding provides narrow transport.

Liquid Fertilizer
For increased productivity, equip the 8200 Series planter
with a liquid fertilizer option with two 200-gallon (757 L) poly
tanks. The 8200 Series will accept all popular liquid fertilizer
openers. A piston metering pump driven by a pair of contact
drive tires dispenses a consistent flow of liquid fertilizer.

may have been common practice to run a 30" planter for corn
and a narrow row drill for narrow row soybeans; today, that's
simply not the case. Today's corn and soybean operators require

to use a single planting system in standard and narrow

The in-cab variable seed rate controller offers an infinite

tractor. It is also capable of increasing or decreasing the
seeding rate on-the-go. This allows you to match seeding
rates to soil types for optimum yield and profit.

8500 Series Flex Frame

The new 8500 Series Central Fill System (CFS)


incorporates proven concepts used in the SC144 Seed Cart
and 8500 flex frame planters to provide an onboard bulk
seed hopper and seed distribution system. The 8500 CFS
system allows for more time planting, rather than refilling
individual hoppers. The 8500 CFS is designed for planting
corn, soybeans, milo, popcorn, and wheat.

The 8500 Series offers a full line of frame and row


spacing options that let you tackle a wide range of planting
applications. Available row widths of 15" (38 cm), 20" (51
cm), 22" (56 cm), and 30" (76 cm) on main frames that
range from 30' up to 60' (9.1-18.2 m), the 8500 Series is
ideally suited to planting a variety of crops that include corn,
soybeans, and sugar beets. When you’re ready to switch

8600 Series Rigid Two-Bar Planter

The 8600 Series rigid two-bar planter is engineered to excel
in limited time, multi-crop situations. Within minutes, the split
rows can be lowered, converting a 6-row 30" corn planter to a
11-row 15" (38 cm) narrow row soybean planter. In the end,
one machine allows you to reap the benefits of 30" (76 cm) corn
while capitalizing on the early canopy and increased yields of
narrow row soybeans.

The rigid two-bar planter is capable of conventional, min-till,


and no-till applications. Combine this with 15" (38 cm) through
30" (76 cm) row spacing options and you have a multi-functional
planting system capable of precisely seeding many crops in

you get from field to field quickly and easily. Furthermore, you can
count on a generous 33 (83.8 cm) inches of ground clearance to
get through rolling terrain. This underframe clearance also gives
you more room for routine maintenance.

Undercarriage Provides Even More Flexibility


The undercarriage itself is unique to the industry. Two
trunnion-mounted hydraulic cylinders lift the planter. In the planting
mode, the planter lifts the row units 8-10" (20.3 – 25.4 cm) above
the ground to conveniently turn after each pass across the field.

Central Fill Seed Distribution


The 8831 CFS Planter features the same onboard bulk seed distribution system you’ll find
on the 8500 Series Central Fill System. The system includes two 45-bushel (1.6 m3 ) translucent
polyethylene hoppers for a total capacity of 90 bushels (3.2 m3). Each poly hopper sits on a mixing
chamber where air and seed are mixed and discharged via a high-capacity blower to individual row
units. This proven system saves you from having to fill each individual hopper, so you can spend
your valuable time planting instead of refilling.

The 8831 CFS is ideal for planting corn, soybeans, milo, popcorn, and wheat. The split rows
