Maximize productivity with two planter configurations to match your operation

15-row 1745 Planter with liquid fertilizer and insecticide15-row 1745 Planter with liquid fertilizer and insecticide

The 1745 Planter comes in two main row-unit configurations with the option of keeping it simple or adding more advanced features.

 

  • 8-row, 76.2-cm (30-in.) configuration
  • 15-row, 38.1-cm (15-in.) configuration allows for planting corn in 76.2-cm (30-in.) rows and soybeans in 38.1-cm (15-in.) rows
  • Select between mechanical or vacuum meters.
  • Dry or liquid fertilizer is available on all non-Central Commodity System (CCS™) models.
  • Select more advanced options like the Pro-Shaft™ cable drive system, RowCommand™ row clutches, CCS, and the SeedStar™ XP monitoring system.

Compatibility with a wide range of tractors

John Deere 4455 Tractor and 1745 PlanterJohn Deere 4455 Tractor and 1745 Planter

The simple design of the 1745 Planter makes it compatible with a wide range of tractors.

 

  • Non-vacuum machine requires one selective control valve (SCV) when markers are tied to lift.
  • Vacuum machine requires two SCVs when markers are tied to lift.
  • There is a minimum drawbar horsepower requirement of 86.5 kW (116 hp) on a 15-row machine.
  • There is a minimum drawbar horsepower requirement of 70.8 kW (95 hp) on an 8-row machine.

Field-proven and customizable MaxEmerge™ 5 row-unit

MaxEmerge 5 row-unit with 106-L (3.0-bu) hopperMaxEmerge 5 row-unit with 106-L (3.0-bu) hopper

Introduced on model year 2015 planters, the MaxEmerge 5 row-unit is proven in the field. Using the same row-unit as ExactEmerge™ planters (less meter and BrushBelt™ delivery system), it was designed to withstand the stresses associated with high-speed operation. With an open side panel design, crop changeover on vacuum meters can be accomplished without removing the hopper from the row. The row-unit also provides you the versatility to match options to your operation.

 

  • Choose finger pickup, radial bean, or vacuum meters
  • Choose mini hoppers, 56-L (1.6-bu) hoppers, or 106-L (3.0-bu) hoppers
  • Heavy-duty spring or pneumatic downforce
  • Apply granular chemical with the insecticide option
  • Variety of row cleaner and coulter options
  • Spoked or smooth-sided gauge wheels
  • Rubber or cast closing wheels

Easily navigate roads with narrow transport position

1745 Planter in transport position1745 Planter in transport position

Navigate narrow roads, bridges, and field entrances with the narrow transport position of the 1745 Planter.

 

  • Planter follows the standard duals on a tractor
  • Typical transport width of 3.71 m (12 ft, 2 in.)*
  • Typical transport height of 3.84 m (12 ft, 7 in.)*
    • Main hydraulic cylinder mast can be lowered under 3.68 m (12 ft) for storage
  • Row-units fold toward the center of the road for stability
  • Comparable non-folding 1785 Planter has a typical transport width of 6.96 m (22 ft, 10 in.).

 

*NOTE: Transport dimensions may vary based on options. Product features are based on published information at the time of publication and are subject to change without notice.

Save time by folding the planter from the cab

1745 Planter partway through the fold cycle1745 Planter partway through the fold cycle

Minimize non-productive planting time by folding the planter from the cab of the tractor.

 

  • Complete the unfold and fold cycles in less than one minute.
  • By utilizing a frame control box, the base planter requires one selective control valve (SCV). Folding, raise/lower, and markers can all be tied to one hydraulic circuit.

Plant more ground between fills with the Central Commodity System (CCS™)

Filling the CCS with a pro-boxFilling the CCS with a pro-box

The CCS adds productivity through increased seed capacity, bulk fill capability, and easy, thorough cleanout.

 

  • The two tanks have a combined capacity of 1,762 L (50 bu) which is 176 L (5 bu) more than a 15-row planter with 106-L (3-bu) hoppers.
  • Translucent tanks allow the operator to see the seed level, and bin-level sensors alert the operator when the seed level is low.
  • Filling the tanks is convenient due to a central filling location. The staircase and railing provide access to the filling platform between the tanks.
  • Two platform lights improve visibility if filling at night.
  • The following crops can be planted with CCS: corn, sweet corn, popcorn, cotton, sunflowers, sugar beets, soybeans, and sorghum (milo).

 

Cleanout is easy since a pro-box can fit under the CCS tanks when the planter is in the lifted position.

Pro-box under CCS tankPro-box under CCS tank

Minimize compaction with large flotation tires

Radial tires on the 1745 PlanterRadial tires on the 1745 Planter

The 1745 Planter comes standard with radial flotation tires. Radial flotation tires can run at lower inflation pressures compared to bias tires. The lower inflation pressure allows the tire to squat, which increases the tire’s footprint and reduces the pressure applied to the ground.

 

  • Two VF445/50R22.5 tread lightly
  • Inflation pressure of 379.2 kPa (55 psi) when planter has a fertilizer system
  • Inflation pressure of 310.3 kPa (45 psi) when planter has a Central Commodity System (CCS™) or is without fertilizer

Reduce seed costs and increase corn yield potential with Section Control

Pro-Shaft™ drive with RowCommand™ clutchPro-Shaft™ drive with RowCommand™ clutch

Section Control, in conjunction with the RowCommand feature on the planter, improves placement of seed, reduces yield penalties of over or under planting, and reduces operator fatigue. By automatically turning rows on and off, there will be less skips and overlap in the field. The automatic process allows the operator to focus on other aspects of planting, reducing overall stress and fatigue.

 

  • University studies have shown seed savings of 1 to 12 percent, with an average of 4.3 percent.*
  • In corn, the study found a 17 percent yield penalty in the double planted area.
  • In corn, the study found a 757.6 L/ha (8.7 bu/acre) combine header loss in the double planted area.
  • This leads to reduced operator stress and fatigue.

Increase versatility by applying liquid or dry fertilizer with a split-row planter

Liquid fertilizer system with frame-mounted fertilizer openersLiquid fertilizer system with frame-mounted fertilizer openers

If you are looking to split-apply your fertilizer, the 1745 Planter offers liquid or dry fertilizer options on all non-bulk fill models, including split-row configurations.

 

  • Liquid fertilizer with single-disk, frame-mounted offset openers or in-furrow placement is available with a storage capacity of 1,136 L (300 gal).
  • Dry fertilizer with single-disk, frame-mounted offset openers is available with a storage capacity of 1,200 L (42.4 cu ft).
  • Fertilizer application is on the front rank only, with 76.2-cm (30-in.) spacing.
  • The fertilizer system is driven by a tire contact drive.

View planter performance with choice of three monitoring systems

ComputerTrak™ 350 monitoring systemComputerTrak™ 350 monitoring system

Your yield potential is never greater than when you take the seed out of the bag and put it in the ground.  A lot can happen between the bag and the furrow, and that’s why John Deere offers three levels of planter monitoring systems, so you can choose what information you want to see in the cab.

 

  • ComputerTrak 350 offers a base monitor that scans the rows to monitor population and spacing.
  • SeedStar™ 2 provides a population monitoring bar graph to compare rows across the planter. It can also control the optional row shut-offs.
  • SeedStar XP shows you population, seed singulation, seed spacing, downforce information, and ride quality. In addition, you can adjust the optional pneumatic down pressure and the optional row shut-offs from the display.
