In May of 2010, Kinze unveiled a new addition to its popular line of 3600 Twin-Line planters. The 3600 planter is now offered with Air Seed Delivery in both 12- and 16-row configurations. The 3600 ASD comes with two centrally mounted, 40-bu. hoppers that distribute seed to individual row units, using air pressure. The only moving part of the ASD system is the blower fan. This planter also features an exclusive hydraulic weight transfer mechanism that transfers the weight of two 40-gal. seed hoppers across the length of the toolbar to prevent the wings from rising out of the ground and to maintain consistent seed depth. A new Digi-Star planter scale package, offered as an option, provides gross and individual weights of the seed tanks.

Suggested list prices: 3600 ASD 12 row with EdgeVac meters and Interplant, $119,218; 3600 ASD 16 row with EdgeVac meters and Interplant, $142,689. For more information, contact Kinze Mfg., Dept. FIN, Box 806, Williamsburg, IA 52361, 319/668-1300, or visit www.kinze.com.
