The Cyclo Planter Grows Up

The Cyclo Air Planter is a drum planter with a seed-metering system with only three moving parts: the seed drum, the seed cut-off brush, and the seed release wheel assembly. This planter concept allows accurate planting of irregular sized seeds. The Cyclo also offers a single large hopper that reduces fill time. In the 1980's IH introduced the Early Riser planters that offered a narrower seed trench, with more precise seed placement. After the 1985 merger of IH and J.I. Case, the Cyclo Air line survived and was updated to the 900 series in 1987.  For a short time in the late 1990's CaseIH offered a 24 row 955 Cyclo-Air planter. The model pictured above is a 1/64 scale CaseIH 955 Cyclo Air Planter built by Justin Van Westen.  It is a 24-30" planter set up with liquid popup fertilizer for corn planting. The frame and markers are all made of brass, which was soldered together. The markers function the way they should (the end goes in and out when the bottom is moved) and the frame raises using a hydraulic cylinder on the main wheel assembly.  In 1991 a Case International 12 row 900 Cyclo Air Planter was offered by Ertl as well as a 1/16 4 row model.
