What’s The Best Seed Delivery System?

The most common question we get asked about high-speed planting is: what does it take to turn an existing planter into a high-speed planter?

Well, the product that Precision Planting offers, SpeedTube, could be all the answers you need to your high-speed planting concerns.

With the SpeedTube, you can turn any standard planter into a high-speed planter. It’s as simple as that.

If your unit has any bounce during your ride, the SpeedTube is able to make sure you can still release two inches from the ground. It helps you plant faster and keep accurate spacing - no matter what the speed.

Most planting seasons have weather challenges, making it quite difficult for you to plant all your fields under the right conditions.

With the SpeedTube by Precision Planting, you’ll be able to double your planting speed without having to sacrifice the performance.

You’ll be able to feel accomplished and you’ll be able to get all your planting finished before you’re hit with heavy rainfall.

Let’s take a closer look at this great seed delivery system to understand more about the benefits it offers to your planter.

Beat the weather with the SpeedTube

Every year we plan out which acres need to be planted first and which crops have to be down before the rain hits. There’s only so much time in one day, and with limited time before the nasty weather hits us, we often have to sacrifice something to get everything planted in time.

You can improve the speed of your planting and beat the bad weather by using SpeedTube. SpeedTube helps you make quick work of your planting processes with extreme accuracy. You can happily watch the rainfall when you use SpeedTube because by the time the heavy showers hit your planter will be tucked up in the shed.

Create a more agile planter with SpeedTube

Bigger is always better right? Well, a lot of growers think this. Having a larger planter or having more planters means that more acres will be planted in less time. However, this just leads to spending a lot of money on expensive equipment, not to mention the extra manpower and potential maintenance challenges.

Instead of adding to your arsenal of farming equipment, why not just upgrade your current planter? With the SpeedTube seed delivery system, you’ll be able to cover more acres in an hour more accurately. It’s a smart, more affordable decision.

SpeedTube doesn’t kill seeds

Planting too fast can cause row units to bounce and seeds to bounce in the tube. There can also be a poor stand. Generally, speed kills which is why a lot of growers usually think bigger is better instead of faster.

But SpeedTube gets rid of this issue. With SpeedTube the seeds are controlled carefully from the vSet meter to the ground.

If there’s a row-unit bounce then SpeedTube makes sure that it doesn’t affect the seed spacing. It does this by containing the seeds within a flighted belt. This keeps them tightly in place before they’re planted.

When the seeds are controlled like this you can increase your speed without having to sacrifice the quality of your performance.

How does SpeedTube control the speed?

SpeedTube, when combined with other systems by Precision Planting, is part of the perfect high-speed planting system. It ensures that as you speed up, your potential yield isn’t going down.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how SpeedTube is used to help control your planting at high-speeds.

  • SpeedTube uses two feeder wheels to pull seeds off the vSet disk
  • These seeds get put into the flighted belt and then into the seed trench
  • The seeds don’t bounce in the tube because they’re under the control of the SpeedTube
  • They don’t tumble in the furrow because when the seed is released SpeedTube matches it to the ground speed
  • This lets you plant properly spaced out seeds in more acres of land in a faster time

The SpeedTube is just one of the products offered by Precision Planting to help retrofit and improve an existing planter in your shop or in your warehouse.

We had our 8320 ECU rewritten and are so happy we did! Tanner took the tractor from 260hp up to 305hp and it is a world of difference. We are pulling our digger faster at less rpm and can't wait to see what it will do on our vertical till!
