RowControl™RowControl™ provides John Deere® planters equipped with Pro-Shaft™ drive an easy, low-cost solution for adding individual row clutches.
The current shaft is removed and replaced with a clutch/shaft assembly. This installation can be completed in a matter of minutes per row. The clutch is located at the toolbar end of the shaft and gearbox assembly. This allows the flexible shaft to stop rotating when the clutch is engaged prevent unnecessary wear on the shaft. The clutch has a 2 pin Deutsch® connector which allows it to be used with existing RowCommand™ harnesses (if equipped). Ag Express can also provide complete clutch overlay harnesses to connect to EPMs (RowCommand™) or GS2™ Rate Controllers.In addition, RowControl™ can also be used as a replacement for RowCommad™ clutches.
A replacement seed meter gearbox is required to take the place of the failed clutch, or the original clutch can also be left in place if it is mechanically sound. RowControl™ Literature - PDF
