Navigate narrow roads, bridges, and field entrances with the narrow transport position of the 1745 Planter.
*NOTE: Transport dimensions may vary based on options. Product features are based on published information at the time of publication and are subject to change without notice.
Minimize non-productive planting time by folding the planter from the cab of the tractor.
If you are looking to split apply fertilizer, the 1745 Planter offers granular fertilizer with frame-mounted single disk openers.
The 1745 Planter comes in two main row-unit configurations with the option of keeping it simple or adding more advanced features.
The simple design of the 1745 Planter makes it compatible with a wide range of tractors.

Introduced on model year 2015 planters, the MaxEmerge 5 row-unit is proven in the field. Using the same row-unit as ExactEmerge™ planters (less meter and BrushBelt™ delivery system), it was designed to withstand the stresses associated with high-speed operation. With an open side panel design, crop changeover on vacuum meters can be accomplished without removing the hopper from the row. The row-unit also provides you the versatility to match options to your operation.
Planter row-unit downforce is an important factor to ensure consistent and proper depth control. With too little downforce, planter gauge wheels can lose ground contact and seeds will be planted at a shallow depth. This can result in uneven emergence, which studies have shown can impact yield 5 to 9 percent1. With too much downforce, furrow sidewalls can become smeared and compacted. Compacted sidewalls can result in hatchet roots, where plant roots grow parallel with the furrow but do not branch out between the rows.
Depending on the level of control the producer is looking for, the 1745 Planter offers three levels of downforce.
Watch the following video to better understand setting downforce by manually adjusting the pressure in the air bags.

An example could be as follows:
Soil resistance will vary based on planting speed, planting depth, soil type, and row-unit attachments such as closing wheel pressure setting, coulter setting, and row cleaner setting.
Watch the following video to better understand margin and how to set the correct margin for field conditions.
Margin is the amount of weight riding on the gauge wheels to ensure proper planting depth and proper firming of furrow sidewalls. It can be calculated as follows:
Margin (A) = weight of row unit (B) + downforce applied (C) – resistance from the soil (D)
Your yield potential is never greater than when you take the seed out of the bag and put it in the ground. A lot can happen between the bag and the furrow, and that’s why John Deere offers three levels of planter monitoring systems, so you can choose what information you want to see in the cab.
The CCS adds productivity through increased seed capacity, bulk fill capability, and easy, thorough cleanout.
Cleanout is easy since a pro-box can fit under the CCS tanks when the planter is in the lifted position.
Section Control, in conjunction with the RowCommand feature on the planter, improves placement of seed, reduces yield penalties of over or under planting, and reduces operator fatigue. By automatically turning rows on and off, there will be less skips and overlap in the field. The automatic process allows the operator to focus on other aspects of planting, reducing overall stress and fatigue.

The 1745 Planter comes standard with radial flotation tires. Radial flotation tires can run at lower inflation pressures compared to bias tires. The lower inflation pressure allows the tire to squat, which increases the tire’s footprint and reduces the pressure applied to the ground.
