Available in both 80' (New for 2017) and 100' working widths, the 3420 PHDTM employs the proven 3320 PHD design with the added technology of the revolutionary TransFoldTM folding system (guided by the X30 Apollo system) which allows you to span up to 100' on the 3420-100 in field position and transform into an equally impressive 18'3" transport width!
Reduced Transport Stress
One of the most important benefits the narrow transport profile will provide operators is the reduced stress when meeting traffic on narrow roadways. Road safety for both the farmer and the people who share the road with farmers is noticeably improved. The 14 wheels positioned under the drill during transport spreads the load of this large drill, reducing the chance of "losing it" on a soft shoulder. In addition, the transport height is 16'6", so farmers typically will not be in danger of overhead obstacles such as power lines.
The back four sets of 3420 transport wheels can be controlled by the operator via the X30, to steer the drill and tank around intersections and through approaches. When going around a corner, the operator can select a left or right turn to guide the drill. Once around the corner, the operator can then reset the wheels to "Drive Straight".
