Kinze Manufacturing has announced it will sell two new planters in 2024. The new 5000 Series planters, bulk-fill only, also feature Kinze's new 5000 Series electric drive row unit. The sleek-styled cast row unit is redesigned for planting at any speed up to 12 mph. The unit will be available on Kinze's new 5900 and 5700 planter models, both equipped with the Iowa manufacturer's Blue Vantage display and powered by Blue Drive electric drive.

The new 5900 and 5700 version planters replace Kinze's current 4905 and 4705 models.

The 5900 is available in 24-row, 30-inch (120-bushel bulk-fill seed capacity, liquid-fertilizer capacity 750-gallon/500-gallon without/with openers); 16-row, 30-inch (80-bushel bulk-fill seed, 500-gallon liquid fertilizer); and 12-row, 30-inch (80-bushel bulk-fill seed, 400-gallon liquid fertilizer) configurations.

The 5700 will be offered in 36-row, 20-inch (120-bushel bulk-fill seed, 750-gallon liquid fertilizer); 24-row, 30-inch (120-bushel bulk-fill, 750-gallon liquid fertilizer); and a 24-row, 20-inch narrow-row planter (120-bushel bulk-fill seed, 500-gallon liquid fertilizer).

The 5700 24R20 planter features a new 40-foot, three-section frame configuration front-mounted, high-flotation tires, rear-facing transport camera, work lights, True Speed or True Rate electric meters and narrow-only Yetter residue option. The unit has 30 degrees of wing flex.
