Both the 1760 and 1760NT (narrow transport) feature a rugged 7-in. x 7-in. frame, wheel module lift system, and tire contact drive system. The 12Row30 flexible-frame model feature a two-section, center flexing frame design that flex 20 degrees up and 20 degrees down. The 1760 and 1760NT are recommended for conventional, mulch-till, and most no-till planting conditions.
The 1760 Planter family is available in the following frame configurations including both rigid and flex options:
  • 6Row30 Narrow Transport (NT) rigid frame
  • 8Row30 Narrow Transport (NT) rigid frame
  • 12Row30 rigid frame
  • 12Row30 flex frame
Frame functionality
 
1760 Flex center frame weight bracket

For 1760 and 1760NT Wing-Fold Planters that are operating less fertilizer, or would require more frame weight for tough soil conditions, additional weight can be added to the center frame. A mounting bracket and six weights add approximately 600 pounds to the planter. This weight prevents the frame from flexing up in the center when planting.
 
Use AA41141 ballast bracket and six tractor front end weights. Attach the bracket with seven 19M7597 (M20x50 bolts) and 14M7277 nuts.

The 1760 and 1760NT Wing-Fold Planters have one hitch length available: 147 in. for planters used with a dual-wheel-equipped tractor.  The long (147-in.) hitch options are available for all frame widths and can be equipped with either a clevis (code 1457) or ring (code 1456) style hitch link. Order the style of hitch link desired. 
 
Hitches are adjustable, providing three hitch settings to match tractor drawbar height, resulting in level planter operation.
Transportability
 
1760NT Planter transports at 12 ft

Narrow Transport (NT) planters provide a compact transport width of only 12 ft. 
 
Wing fold of the 1760 Planter hydraulically-controlled on the 12-row flex and rigid models.  The 1760NT 8-Row is also hydraulically controlled while the 6-row frame has only manual fold.  The independent marker option and hydraulic-fold option are plumbed together using a diverter valve (code 1514) when both options are ordered (reduces selective control valve requirements by one).

Fertilizer capabilities
 
Both the 1760 and 1760NT Planters can be equipped with a liquid fertilizer system. Six- and eight-row configurations carry two fertilizer tanks totaling 300 gallons of capacity. The 1760 12Row30 model can handle 450 gallons of fertilizer in two tanks. 
 
The use of the single-disk, unit-mounted injection fertilizer opener, or the frame-mounted, single-disk fertilizer opener makes the 1760 and 1760NT no-till capable. The 1760 equipped with the unit-mounted, double-disk fertilizer opener is not well suited for no-till applications and opener penetration may be limited by soil conditions.  Frame-mounted, single-disk fertilizer opener is only compatible with 1760NT Planters.
