The addition of 8-Section Control adds several new features to the company’s Hydraulic Down Force System. Row-by-row sensing allows the system to monitor and respond to the down force needs of each row, in order to account for frequent variations in field depth. The system also adds greater flexibility with up to eight sections of control and multiple configurations available.
