Maestro SX L

The Maestro SX L is based on the well-proven planter concept of the Maestro SV. With 24 rows on 30" spacing, the chassis is designed for large carrying capacity of liquid fertilizer and seed. Integrated liquid system is complete from tank to the in-furrow placement. Seed in the bulk tank is conveyed to the row via the pneumatic MTS system and that air flow is also used for metering functions.

Advantages of Maestro 2430 SX L

  • 1 000 gallon liquid fertilizer and 140 bushel seed carrying capacity.
  • Weight transfer system
  • Hydraulic row unit downforce with optional AutoForce
  • High flotation low psi tires
  • Electric meter drives – section control and curve compensation
  • Liquid system
    • 92 gpm pump
    • SectionControl – six sections
    • Monitoring of each row

Inside the AirSpeed metering system

The revolutionary AirSpeed metering system is based on completely rethinking high speed planting. Using positive pressure metering technology, superior seed singulation is achieved at traditional and higher planting
speeds. Seed is released into a pressurized seed tube, shooting the seed to the furrow precisely where the catch wheel perfectly embeds the seed for maximum soil and moisture contact.

Advantages of AirSpeed on Maestro SX L

  • Planting speeds up to 10 mph
  • No adjustments needed for singulation adjustment
  • Positive pressure system with pressurized seed tube: simplicity and precision at high speed
  • Pressurized seed tube – directly carries seed to furrow via air stream – eliminates seed tube bounce
  • Ideal for corn, soybeans, sunflowers, sugar beets, canola, and other crops.
