Fully Mounted CCS

Learn how maneuverability improves productivity

When you combine fully integral mounting with no lift assist wheels needed and the bulk-fill time savings of the John Deere Central Commodity System, you get the most maneuverable, efficient 12-row planter on the market today.

Orthman stack-fold technology is out in front around the world

Orthman’s industry-leading stack-fold technology is only one reason why you’ll get more done during planting season with the Fully Mounted CCS DR Series planters. Available in 30″- 40″ configurations up to 40′ wide, they feature a three-section flexible frame to adapt to uneven field terrain and are designed to take full advantage of the capacity and productivity of the 35 bu. John Deere Central Commodity System (CCSTM).   When you combine fully integral mounting with no lift assist wheels needed and the bulk-fill time savings of the John Deere Central Commodity System, you get the most maneuverable, efficient 12 row planters on the market today.


Performance-stacked DR Series Planters let you plant more seed in less time

Orthman is known as a worldwide leader in versatile, durable stacking toolbars, because we continually strive to meet and exceed the changing needs of customers. DR Series Stacking Planters are the result of decades of stacking toolbar experience and have been designed as the ultimate planter platform.

High-Quality Construction

DR Planter toolbars are constructed of high-strength premium grade steel tubing to provide years of trouble-free use and all folding hinges are precision line-bored to ensure smooth folding and extra strength, consistent with all Orthman toolbars.


Adapt to Uneven Field Terrain

The three-section flexible frame of the DR Planter with wing float adapts to uneven field terrain, with 8 degrees up and 8 degrees down to allow you to handle any ground conditions.

No Lift Assist Wheels

The unique design of the Fully Mounted CCS DR planters allow them to be fully mounted to the tractor, allowing you the maneuverability to plant into tight corners to utilize every inch of your fields and to move from field to field  at full speed, improving your productivity.

Worry-Free End Turns

DR series planters feature an innovative gull-wing package that allows the wings to flex upward 8 degrees for more clearance on end turns.  DR series planters are perfect for planting up to ditches to minimize the need for headlands and allow you to turn around with the wings overhanging ditches and waterways unlike drawn planters that utilize carry wheels on the end of the planter toolbar.

Clutter Free toolbar

All Fully Mounted CCS DR planters come equipped with the row unit vacuum built into the planter toolbar, creating a much cleaner, clutter free planter.  Combine this with the integrated routing points for harnesses and hydraulics, the Fully Mounted CCS DR planters are easy to service and maintain.

Integrated GPS Implement Guidance Mounting

The Fully Mounted CCS DR planters are designed to work perfectly with the Orthman Tracker IV GPS implement guidance system, with built in mounting points to bolt directly to the planter for optimal weight balance and providing precise planting of your crop no matter the terrain. (Link to learn more about the Tracker system)

Central Commodity System (CCS™)

John Deere CCS seed delivery adds productivity with its bulk fill capability and easy, thorough cleanout.  It’s a great efficiency-enhancer, no matter whether you are planting corn, sweetcorn, popcorn, cotton, sunflowers, soybeans, or sorghum.

Less Time Filling, More Time Planting

All Fully Mounted CCS DR planters are equipped with a single 35 bushel seed hopper, allowing you to fill one hopper and get back to planting faster.  The 35 bushel hopper nearly matches the capacity of current 12 row machines with 3.0 bushel hoppers, and allows the productivity of CCS while minimizing machine cost and increasing maneuverability compared to machines with lift assist wheels.

All-New MaxEmerge™ 5 Row units

With features like an improved doubles eliminator, new hopper design with increased sidehill performance, new vacuum air source and a chemical application option — not to mention the advantages of the SeedStar XP monitoring system, RowCommand Row Control System and the time-saving benefits of the Central Commodity System — you are equipped to go to the field with more advantages than ever before.

NEW Mini-Hopper

Enhanced design features new straight entry hose directly from the CCS tank to promote better seed flow and to cut down on potential plugging. With this upgraded series, you can maintain your target population on slopes up to 14°.

Clean Air Vacuum

Vacuum air now enters the mini-hopper directly from the CCS tank, providing only clean air and ensuring the seed meters stay clear of debris.

Doubles Eliminator

New and improved number dial knob allows for more precise setting with a variety of crop sizes, allowing you to achieve target population consistently.

Easier Meter Access

Make faster, simpler switch-over to the knockout wheel and scrapers without tools for quicker changeover between crop varieties, including hopper shutoff for 1.6- and 3-bushel hoppers.

Chemical Application Option
