Anhydrous Hitch For Row Crop Planter
An old Gleaner combine axle married up to a gooseneck hitch lets Nebraska farmer Randy Fischer pull an anhydrous tank behind his Deere 7000 planter.
"When I began to no-till my milo and corn 5 years ago I started looking for a way to apply nitrogen at planting time instead of side dressing. I couldn't find any commercial unit so I built my own.
"The trailer was built by May Welding, Bennet, Neb., out of an old Gleaner combine axle. It carries a 500 gal. tank but was designed to carry a larger tank, if needed. It's pulled by a ball hitch mounted on a frame above the planter toolbar. I bolted three anhydrous knives on the front toolbar of my 6-row Deere 7000 planter. Each knife fertilizes two rows."
