Latest New Products From Kinze
The hopper is available in 55-bu. capacity for the 12-row narrow planter and 85-bu. capacity for the 16-row model. Inside the hoppers, nylon-bristled adjustable speed augers slowly move seed to a PVC distribution manifold that runs the length of the hopper. The manifold feeds all rows through molded plastic drop collars. The manifold rotates to shut off distribution to the front rows when planting 30-in. rows. Two centrally-mounted hydraulic motors allow the operator to adjust auger speed to meet seed demand. A 12-row planter equipped with a 55-bu. hopper sells for about $86,000.
The company also displayed a big, fast-unloading prototype auger wagon that has a capacity of 1,050 bu. It's equipped with a 20-in. dia. auger that can unload the entire wagon in only about two minutes. The Harvest Commander wagon is expected to be on the market by May 2002.
