Case IH Flex Hoe Air Drills

Case IH Flex Hoe air hoe drills feature flexible frames in seeding widths from 27–70 ft. (8.2–21.3 m). Residue flow is smooth, thanks to the four-bar frame that provides ground clearance up to 32 in. (81 cm). Easy depth control across the entire machine is simple, thanks to hydraulic cylinders and industry-leading single-point depth adjustment. A patented slow-response steering arm on the Flex Hoe 700 for tow-behind air carts minimizes hillside skewing.

Flex Hoe 400 Model

  • Base sizes include 27, 33, 39, 45 and 51 ft. (8.2, 10, 11.9, 13.7 and 15.5 m)
  • Leading casters carry the frame inside the front, and press wheels carry the rear so residue is never blocked by wheels inside the frame
  • Parallel linkage between front casters and rear press wheels keeps the frame level and maintains seeding depth in changing conditions
  • Flexible frame joints dissipate frame stress for more durability and allows for more ground following

Flex Hoe 700

  • Base sizes include 60 and 70 ft. (18.3 and 21.3 m), which fold down to a transport width of 17 ft. 8 in. (5.4 m)
  • A strong mainframe of large, 12x12-in. (30.5x30.5-cm) steel tube with 10-ft. center section and either 10- or 15-ft. flexwings that hug the terrain
  • A patented two-piece wing allows for precise depth — front-half depth is controlled by a nearby caster assembly, and rear-half depth is controlled by press wheels
  • Variable packing pressure adjusts to conditions that change from field to field

Seeding Style


Case IH Flex Hoe Series air hoe drills are engineered to deliver precision seeding under a wide variety of seeding styles and field conditions. Match one of these seeding styles to configure the best drill for your operation

Knife Seeding

  • Places the seed and/or fertilizer in a narrow row using on-row press wheel packing

Ribbon Band Seeding

  • Places seed and fertilizer in a wide band instead of a narrow row
  • Allows for higher fertilizer rates than narrow row openers
  • A low to moderate disturbance opener is used, followed by a matching on-row press wheel

Ribbon Band Sweep Seeding

  • Seed and/or fertilizer is placed in a row behind a full sweep that provides weed control in the seeding pass
  • Followed by on-row press wheels that match spread width

Double-Shoot Seeding

  • Places seed and fertilizer on separate planes and at separate depths
  • Placement is either between the rows, as a side band or as a paired-row configuration — followed by an on-row press wheel



Match the right opener to your conditions

Higher yields can be gained when you match the right opener to your conditions to achieve accurate seed and fertilizer placement. Case IH offers two openers — Stealth® and Nok-on™ — that deliver successful seeding in your conditions.

Stealth Opener System

  • System offers a choice of low-disturbance knife tips or a selection of spread tips for single-shoot applications

  • Stealth double-shoot side band or paired row attachments deliver one-pass seed and fertilizer placement

  • Replaceable tips let you match the right opener to the job and help you manage wear

Nok-on Opener System

  • Quickly switch sweeps, along with either a narrow or wide opener, to add maximum versatility to your seeding system

  • Fine-tune your product spread width with an adjustable spread boot option to match your choice of sweeps and packing


Packing Choices

wide range of on-row packing choices

To improve germination, Case IH offers a wide range of on-row packing choices to match your seeding style, opener and soil conditions.

You can choose from steel, pneumatic or semi-pneumatic packing wheels — each geared to fit specific conditions.

In-Line Gang Packing System

  • Steel V wheels work well in sandy and rocky soil conditions
    • Available in 3.5- or 4.5-in. (8- or 11.4-cm) widths, with the larger size used in 10- and 12-in. (25.4- and 30.5-cm) spacings only
  • Semi-pneumatic rubber press wheels flex to shed buildup in heavy, sticky soils
    • Flat profile rides over a wider area for less packing pressure in heavier soils
    • Available in widths of 3, 4 or 5.5 in. (7.6, 10.2 or 14 cm)

Walking Beam Packing System

  • For the Flex Hoe 700, a walking beam packing system, is available to ensure even and adequate packing pressure
  • Thick, flat-faced or rounded pneumatic press wheels offer maximum flex and sustain minimal stubble damage

Flat-Faced Implement Tires

  • To pack a wide seed spread or double-shoot application, these 6.50x15 flat-faced implement tires work best in 10- and 12-in. (25.4- and 30.5-cm)-wide spacing configurations.


Two Shank Styles and two trip options

Match shank and trip styles to your operation so you protect valuable openers, get maximum clearance for tripping over obstacles and effective penetration for consistent depth.

Choose from two shank styles and two trip options to create the air drill that’s right for your operation.

Shank Designs

  • The rugged C-shank design can be used with a wide range of opener styles
  • Vertical edge-on shanks are available for the Flex Hoe 700
  • When used with the Stealth®, the edge-on shank creates ultra-low soil disturbance
  • Both shanks allow a wide array of openers, sweeps and attachments

Trip Options

  • Choose 350-lb. (149-kg) trips for most soil types
  • For rugged conditions and double-shoot applications, select 550-lb. (249-kg) trips
