Narrow Row DR

Narrow spacing combined with wide field operation

Whether you’re planting corn and beans on 20” rows or sugar beets on 22” rows, Orthman has a DR planter to meet your needs. With sizes up to 24 rows, the DR Narrow Row Planters will help you cover more acres than ever before.

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

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.

Industry-Exclusive Sizes

With multiple industry-exclusive sizes and nine narrow row models available, the DR16, DR18 and DR24 Narrow Row Planters set the standard for large-frame planting on narrow rows. CCS models come standard with heavy-duty Orthman lift assist wheels, with large tires for maximum flotation. DR16 and DR18 models are able to be fully mounted without lift assist wheels when ordered with 1.6- or 3.0-bushel row unit hoppers.


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.


Multi-Fold Toolbars

DR24 NT (Narrow Transport) Planters are built on innovative multi-fold stacking toolbars. A single hydraulic SCV folds and unfolds the planter for quick stack-and-go performance.


Narrow Transport Models

Transport faster and safer with the DR24 row 20″ and 22″ narrow transport options offering 14′8″ and 17′2″ transport widths. Its multi-fold design combined with a short setback hitch allow it to have the performance and maneuverability of a mounted planter, with transport widths often only found in pull-type planters.

Integrated GPS Implement Guidance Mounting

DR Narrow Row Planters are designed to work perfectly with the Orthman Tracker IV & Shadow Tracker GPS implement guidance systems, 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.

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, sweet corn, popcorn, cotton, sunflowers soybeans, or sorghum.

Less Time Filling, More Time Planting

All Narrow Row DR planters with the Central Commodity System are equipped with two 50-bushel seed hoppers, keeping you in the field more than twice as long as machines with 1.6-bushel seed hoppers.

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

Lay down granular insecticide or herbicide with each seed pass to improve your overall productivity. Available on Pro-Shaft drive mini-hoppers and 1.6-bushel hoppers.
