1725C 12R40 Stackfold Planter

Especially designed for cotton growers, it offers big maneuverability improvements, wide cotton-specific row spacing, and narrow transport. Choose ExactEmerge™ or MaxEmerge™ 5e row units, plus the 35 bushel CCS, to keep you on schedule with quick and efficient seed delivery. Available on 36, 38 or 40 inch row spacing.

ME 5e Electric Drive MaxEmerge™ 5 Planters

Designed to improve population accuracy, spacing, and avoid wasting inputs for maximising yield.  It is driven by one electric motor per meter with a small control box. This does away with the shafts and drivelines of a typical hydraulic drive, which translates into easier access to row-unit components and less maintenance. For producers who want uniform row spacing, the ME5e is a great option. One of the biggest advantages is how it improves population accuracy by compensating for curves on the outer rows of the planter.

Distance Trip – for Automatic GPS controlled RotoBuck placement

The Distance Trip functionality allows growers to utilise many different hydraulic-controlled implements and control them based on a given distance.  One of its main benefits is that helps to reduce operator fatigue y automatically controlling the trip distance of a blade for in furrow irrigation and water management applications.

SeedStar Mobile

It is the new John Deere planter monitoring solution designed to enhance the in-cab experience during the most critical farming operation of the entire crop cycle – planting. SeedStar Mobile documents and visualises the row-by-row performance of the planter, giving operators the confidence needed to successfully plant crops with highest level of precision, control, and accuracy.

StarFire™ 6000 Receiver & SF3

The new StarFire 6000 Receiver has been designed to give growers greater precision capabilities and uptime than ever before. It implements an improved antenna, the latest in Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signal processing technology, and new differential correction, SF3 that improves pass-to-pass accuracy, in-season repeatability and pull-in time.. All of this new technology adds up to improved performance and uptime when paired with precision agriculture systems such as AutoTrac™ assisted steering system and John Deere Section Control.

9RX – 4 Track High hp Articulated Tractors

The John Deere 9RX Series add value to the extensive line of high horsepower 9R Series wheeled and 9RT Series 2-track tractors. The new four 9RX Tractor models – which range from 470 to 620 engine horsepower – feature a large, robust undercarriage and track system engineered to provide growers with superior power, durability, and improved ride quality, especially when handling large implements in the field.


Signode has recently launched GinFast which presents a paradigm shift in bale handling methods – no more strap!  The GinFast concept has been proven across multiple gins in the USA and is now ready to be launched  in Australia.

The big change in process is that with GinFast the compressed bale is removed from the press within 5 seconds, freeing the press to drop and process the next bale.  Current technology strappers hold the press for a minimum of 8 to 12 seconds.  GinFast is able to consistently process 90 bales per hour.

Fast, rugged and reliable… GinFast.
