The Sweet Spot

MaxEmerge 5e Offers the Best of Both Worlds

With new MaxEmerge 5e, plant population and seed spacing accuracy is improved by a singular electric drive that allows for greater curve performance on the outer and inner rows. The heightened productivity also helps to avoid input waste so you can maximise yield. 1-2% potential yield loss is avoided in your operation, and thanks to the electric motor, shafts and drivelines are eliminated. You now have better access to the row unit components, making planter maintenance much simpler.

The Whole Kit and Caboodle

New ExactEmerge Retrofit Kits
Know what you get with an ExactEmerge Retrofit Kit? You get it all. The industry-exclusive BrushBelt delivery system. The high-performance vacuum meter. The dual electric motors. Everything. So now you can turn the planter already in your shed into the planter of tomorrow.

Find out which older-model planters can now be outfitted with ExactEmerge.


Vacuum Meter Vacuum Meter
The redesigned vacuum meter is built for high-performance planting, allowing you to plant the hybrid that's precisely singulated and bests suits your field conditions. This means a variety of kernel sizes and shapes, and no mechanical adjustments to worry about. Plus, our improved meter offers a new brush-style doubles eliminator that ensures only one seed reaches the brush belt to give you world-class singulation.
Brush belt BrushBelt
The brush belt delivers seed to the bottom of the trench, matching planter ground speed at any desired population. This gives you precise seed placement with no roll. Brush bristles gently cradle seed and control them for superior spacing accuracy, even in rough planting conditions. For ExactEmerge row units only.

We say ‘Accurate at 16 km/h.’ because we’d hate for you to lose sight of the fact that whether you continue to go 8 km/h or you push it up to 16, you’ll enjoy accuracy above and beyond today’s standard. That’s due to the industry-exclusive BrushBelt, which delivers seed directly to the bottom of the trench with no roll. Of course, there’s still the benefit of going 16 km/h to blow through tight planting windows. Not to mention other key features … all of which make ExactEmerge more than just the right match for corn and soybean growers, it makes it an exact match.

Planting has never been so versatile, whether that’s the wide variety of hopper configurations or the option to add granular insecticide for one-pass planting and chemical application. Perhaps it’s the ability to plant on slopes and terraces as well as you would flat land. Or maybe it’s the improved doubles eliminator that offers a convenient turn dial for easy crop adjustment. Actually, it’s all of the above. It’s what makes MaxEmerge 5 the complete agronomic solution for any field and any grower.

Available for the first time, John Deere now offers the option of a single electric motor on our new MaxEmerge 5e row unit. With electric drive on MaxEmerge 5e, you get the traditional planting system of a seed tube, but the ability to compensate for turns and maintaining in-row spacing – which helps improve population and seed spacing accuracy. Throw in the easier maintenance and reduced levels of potential yield loss, and what you have is a planter that fits more producer profiles than we can imagine. Let’s not forget that MaxEmerge 5e comes equipped with other popular features found on ExactEmerge, like vacuum automation, SeedStar 3 HP, SeedStar Mobile, and more.
