    I have had many planter monitors through the years but this system is hands down the best system I have ever had on my planters. 13 seasons and I have never had to send the unit in for repair.

    I bought this system for my JD 7200 and everything just slid on like it was built for my planter. I have had no buyers remorse at all.

    I love the fact that I can set this monitor up with two settings, now when I change from my Planter to my Drill it's as easy as a restarting the monitor and one button push, I can't get over how easy it is to use, Even my dad can use it.

Seed Sensor Gain

If the seed sensors on your drill only count 85% of the seeds (this is typical), then the M3 can adjust the seed sensor gain so that the actual population will be displayed on the monitor screen.

Seed Sensor Gain

Low Population Alarm

With the M3, you don’t have to wait for a row to completely stop planting. An adjustable, low-population alarm will warn you if any rows are out of range.

Low Population Alarm

Average and individual row population

The M3 displays the population for each individual row and the average population of all rows. Auto-scan or individual row monitoring can be selected.

Sensor Test with Auto Row Disable

Another built-in feature of the M3 console is the ability to test all of the seed sensors each time it is turned on and to automatically disable any rows that have a defective seed sensor.  No more unplugging wires or  re-programming the monitor.

Sensor Test with Auto Row Disable

Two Setup Routines

The M3 allows you to store two different setups in memory so there is no need to re-enter  the setup parameters when changing planters. 

Two Setup Routines

Adjustable row fail alarm

Should a row stop planting, the M3 has an adjustable volume alarm that will promptly alert you at the first sign of a problem.
