    The four-rank frame design of the 2430C has provided unmatched reliability to John Deere operators for over 10 years and a countless amount of acres. With operators requiring faster working speeds out of larger implements, machines require thicker frame tubes, additional diagonal bracing, and frame gussets to endure 600 engine horsepower tractors.

     

    The frame stretches 3.40 m (134 in.) front-to-back, which allows for high levels of residue to easily flow through the staggered row units ensuring higher productivity and consistent nutrient placement. The large frame member sizes, tube-through-tube construction, and wheel module placement adds to the structural integrity, providing a stable front-to-rear and side-to-side operation.

     

    The open frame design of the 2430C offers the ability to mount anhydrous distribution and nitrogen stabilizer systems in different locations throughout the bar based on user preference and convenience.

     

    The ease of accessibility to the maintenance points of the machine is achieved through 1.1 m (44 in.) of underframe clearance. This enables the operator to save valuable time while experiencing less fatigue for routine maintenance and service.

    Frame construction offers:
    • Consistent operating depth
    • Improved nutrient placement
    • Clear view of machine operation
    • Ease of serviceability
    • 10 degrees up flex and 15 degrees down flex
  • Wheel configuration provides increased performance
    Walk-Over tandem wheelsWalk-Over tandem wheels

    The wheel configuration of the 2430C provides increased performance with a total of 18 front castering and Walk-Over tandem wheels. This allows for excellent depth accuracy for following the contour of the terrain and provides greater flotation and maneuverability.

     

    The staggered wheel design provides additional room for residue flow, obstacles, and transport stability. Ultimately, this setup leads to precise nutrient placement, eliminating gas-out while achieving increased application speeds in varying field conditions.

     

    The front castering wheels provide good stability at the front of the machine and facilitate excellent turning, reducing tire scuffing. The rear-mounted walking tandem wheels maintain a level frame for increased operating speeds over rough fields.

  • Single-point depth control

    #

    Single-point depth control has always been a popular choice with producers.

     

    The easy crank-adjustment handle in one convenient location controls the depth of the entire machine. The depth stop and valve are mounted directly to the frame and cylinder pins for precise, repeatable depth settings.

     

    Five-section implements utilize four cylinders on the mainframe, two on each side in a combination parallel-series hydraulic path. The mainframe cylinders work together, acting as a hydraulic rockshaft maintaining side-to-side depth integrity.

     

    Single point:

    • Provides 3-mm (1/8-in.) operating depth change per turn
    • Simple up-front location depth adjustment for entire machine
    • Cylinder eyebolts adjust for frame leveling
    • Valve assembly attached to frame and cylinder pins promotes consistent and repeatable valve activation
  • Rear hitch

    The ability to tow an anhydrous tank is an important component of anhydrous applications. The 2430C is equipped with a rear hitch capable of towing up to 11364 kg (25000 lb).

     

    Tank hookup is made easier by extending the drawbar outwards and side-to-side laterally. It is constructed of heavy-duty tubing to ensure reliability and withstands higher towing capacity demands. 

    Improved rear hitch design

    An improved rear hitch design enables operators to utilize tow-behind attachments such as an additional leveling attachment or field finishing tool. Side-to-side range is improved by 56 percent.

  • Adjustable closing disks

    #

    The closing disk system is standard equipment on the conventional models and is not available on the chisel models. As the nutrient knife places anhydrous, closing disks reduce soil disturbance while bringing the soil back for proper sealing. Soil types, moisture, and residue levels can greatly affect the amount and consistency of the soil that is brought back in. The closing disks on the 2430C can be adjusted from a narrow setting of 220 mm (8.8 in.) apart to the widest setting of 430 mm (17 in.) apart for industry leading adjustability.

     

    The closing disk system on the 2430C requires no tools for adjustability. Fore-aft and lateral settings are pin adjustable and have variable down force. This makes for quick, easy adjustments that allow for customizable settings to meet field finish preferences. For increased productivity and ease of serviceability, there are no grease zerks on the closing disks assembly.

     

    The 460-mm (18-in.) concave notched blades close the slot and seal the anhydrous in the soil. The closing disks are designed with down-pressure springs built in, which limits bounce in rough field conditions. The closing arms have been engineered to flex as large obstructions (clods/rocks/etc.) flow between the knife and the blade. Independent up and down travel arms are key to the nearly plug-free closing disk. This allows one machine to operate in any soil type and eliminates the need to have multiple disk sealer attachments along with labor required to change them out.

  • Conventional or chisel standards available

    The Tru-Depth™ heavy-duty cast standards on the 2430C Nutrient Applicators are designed for precise and accurate nutrient placement and offer 567 kg (1250 lb) of trip force to allow for faster operating speeds. The conventional standard comes as base equipment and the parabolic chisel standard is available as an option.

    Conventional heavy-duty Tru-Depth standardConventional heavy-duty Tru-Depth standard

    The Tru-Depth conventional heavy-duty cast standard allows for application from 100-mm (4-in.) to 250-mm (10-in.) deep. With a trip height of 279 mm (11 in.), the standard is able to handle field obstacles and reset back to the operating depth with no shear bolt replacement. This reduces downtime spent replacing shear bolts, which leads to increased productivity.  

    Heavy-duty cast Tru-Depth standardHeavy-duty cast Tru-Depth standard

    The Tru-Depth heavy-duty cast chisel standard allows operators to perform tillage up to 305-mm (12-in.) deep and gives them the ability to perform nutrient application and tillage in one pass. The standard is designed to mix and bury residue to promote decomposition and encourage faster soil warming.

  • TruSet™ Tillage technology

    The 2430C Nutrient Applicator is designed for accurate nutrient placement. Precise depth control is very important for conservation of moisture, fertilizer placement, and soil management. Soil layers of differing soil type vary across farms and even across fields. The ability to adjust for these conditions is extremely important to producers today.

     

    TruSet and single-point depth control both come as standard equipment. Both provide accurate depth control to best utilize available tractor horsepower.

     

    With TruSet, these adjustments can be done on the move, increasing productivity and making the day go easier for operators. TruSet provides accurate and precise depth control by the use of individual wheel sensors and electronic circuitry to perform tasks of leveling and depth measurements unprecedented in the industry until now. Accurate depth is displayed to the nearest 2.5 mm (1/10 in.).

     

    The field-proven single-point depth control offers the producer one easy, front-mounted crank to dial in their depth control for the entire implement. From one location, this adjustment is easily and quickly completed.

     

    The floating hitch, frame strength of the Tube-Thru-Tube manufacturing, and the wheel package placement allow the 2430C to offer unmatched consistency of depth (front-to-back and side-to-side). Fuel can be saved, soil can be mixed and shattered, and accurate depth for nutrients can be maintained. This represents true soil management for the producer.

    TruSet Side-to-Side

    TruSet Side-to-Side gives producers the same level of individual section control that was available with AccuDepth™ hydraulics. However, there are differences in how the two systems are hydraulically plumbed.

     

    The AccuDepth hydraulics required a correction valve on every frame section since the hydraulics were plumbed in parallel. The TruSet system is plumbed into a single-point (series) system.

     

    The series hydraulics give producers the option of controlling depth with just the single-point depth control valve or individually controlling each frame section with a correction valve mounted at the base of each depth control cylinder on the wings. The individual section control with TruSet Side-to-Side is an upgrade to the base TruSet Tillage system, allowing even more accurate nutrient placement.

     

    TruSet Side-to-Side is controlled by five sensors compared to one sensor with the base TruSet Tillage system. With the five-sensor control, the implement can make depth control adjustments via sensor feedback on the wings.

     

    TruSet Side-to-Side eliminates the need to rephase the depth control cylinders after several rounds in the field. However, it does require another step when calibrating.

    Documentation and prescription

    With integrated TruSet Tillage technology, operators can incorporate documentation and prescription functionality into their tillage operations. The tillage documentation feature will give producers the ability to capture and analyze the pass for additional coverage of the crop production cycle. Prescription functionality provides producers the capability to ensure their tillage operations are executed correctly, optimizing their investment in preparing for the next crop.

     

    Operators can document data by creating an as-applied map based off of global positioning system (GPS) data for the job performed by the implement. TruSet enables producers to document their tillage passes then later review and analyze the data for future agronomic decisions.

     

    Additionally, the Prescription Creator by Agrian® company, a connected partner tool through the John Deere Operations Center, enables producers to create prescriptions for each functional area. Data from previous yields, soil surveys, or freehand drawing tools can be used to create prescriptions that will command the implement to the desired depth and pressure settings for optimum agronomic results.
