The Whole Kit and Caboodle

New ExactEmerge Retrofit Kits
Know what you get with an ExactEmerge Retrofit Kit? You get it all. The industry-exclusive BrushBelt delivery system. The high-performance vacuum meter. The dual electric motors. Everything. So that now you can turn the planter already in your machine shed into the planter of tomorrow.



Vacuum Meter Vacuum Meter
The redesigned vacuum meter was built for high-performance planting, allowing you to plant the hybrid that's precisely singulated and bests suits your field conditions. That means a variety of kernel sizes and shapes, and no mechanical adjustments to worry about. Plus, our improved meter offers a new brush-style doubles eliminator that ensures only one seed reaches the brush belt to give you world-class singulation.
Brush belt Brush belt
The brush belt delivers seed to the bottom of the trench, matching planter ground speed at any desired population. This gives you precise seed placement with no roll. Brush bristles gently cradle seed and control them for superior spacing accuracy, even in rough planting conditions. For ExactEmerge row units only.

We say ‘Accurate at 10mph.’ because we’d hate for you to lose sight of the fact that whether you continue to go 5mph or you push it up to 10, you’ll enjoy accuracy above and beyond today’s standard. That’s due to the industry-exclusive brush belt, which delivers seed directly to the bottom of the trench with no roll. Of course, there’s still the benefit of going 10mph to blow through tight planting windows. Not to mention other key features … all of which make ExactEmerge™ more than just the right match for corn and soybean growers, it makes it an exact match.

Planting has never been so versatile, whether that’s the wide variety of hopper configurations or the option to add granular insecticide for one-pass planting and chemical application. Perhaps it’s the ability to plant on slopes and terraces as well as you would flat land. Or maybe it’s the improved doubles eliminator that offers a convenient turn dial for easy crop adjustment. Actually, it’s all of the above. It’s what makes MaxEmerge™ 5 the complete agronomic solution for any field and any grower.
