Racine, Wis.—Case IH is adding the Precision Hoe 800 air hoe drill to its lineup of seeding equipment. With two new patented features—a parallel link row unit and angled, double-shoot knife opener—the Precision Hoe 800 delivers precision seed and fertilizer placement for small-seeded crops on large acreages.

The patented parallel link row unit maintains opener depth, from the top to the bottom of its entire 16 in. (9-in. up and 7-in. down) range of motion. Depth can be adjusted in 1/8-in. increments for accurate, consistent seed placement across the field.

It also accurately maintains the angle at which the patented, double-shoot knife opener engages the ground, preserving 1- to 1.5-inches separation between the seed and fertilizer bands.

The Case IH Precision Hoe 800 is available in 50-, 60-, and 70-ft. working widths. All three working widths are available in 10- or 12-in. row widths, and capable of operating with tow-between and tow-behind air systems.
