Features

Configurations to Suit Your Operation
Case IH Flex Hoe Series air drills are engineered to deliver precision seeding in varying field conditions and seeding needs. Choose from a wide range of opener and press wheel options to suit your operation. The Flex Hoe series features a flexible folding frame design that provides easy transport but still offers wide working widths for greater productivity, allowing you to hit that critical seeding window.

OPENERS

Get Accurate Placement and Higher Yields
Flex Hoe openers are designed to optimize input placement by providing effective ground penetration and maintaining consistent depth.

PARALLEL LINK OPENER

Ground Following
The parallel link opener, available on the Flex Hoe 900 features a shorter distance from bar to opener offers precise depth control with less up and down movement. Parallel links maintain opener depth and orientation.

Easy Depth Adjusment
The Quick-Lock™ depth adjuster is positioned at waist height with presets for easy, one-handed, tool-free depth adjustments on each row opener.

In-Cab Down Pressure Control
The down pressure of the opener and frame can be controlled from the cab through an intuitive run screen interface. This allows the operator to adjust as field conditions change.
