8' End Wheel Min-Till Compact Drill
Our Great Plains 8' Min-Till Drill (800) is a smaller version of our 1300 End Wheel Drill that uses the same field-proven 00 Series Opener to properly place seed. This rugged opener utilizes 13-1/2", 4mm thick disk blades with 205 triple lip seals for long life. It also features full length seed tubes and an 18-position T-handle press wheel to precisely control depth. Changing the 5-position, centrally located down pressure adjustment is quick and easy, ensuring the correct pressure regardless of the conditions.
Other features include a 1-3/4"-wide fluted feed metering system. It utilizes a 4-speed gearbox and adjustable gate opening to accurately set a wide variety of planting rates for seeding crops from alfalfa to peas. A dry fertilizer and/or a small seeds attachment can also be added to further tailor the drill to your needs.
Lockout hubs free the drive component system during transport. Safety lighting, electronic acre meter, lift cylinder with hoses, calibration crank, V-bottom dividers for easy cleanout, and a folding tongue are all standard equipment. Optional equipment includes air design disk scrapers, seedbox agitator, and either Keeton Seed Firmers® or our exclusive Seed-Lok® firming wheels.
Disengages all drive components, reducing wear and tear during transport.
HYDRAULIC OPENER LIFT / DOWN PRESSURE
Tractor hydraulics raise and lower the openers quickly. They also apply static down pressure to the row units.
Specialty seeds are expensive. Calibrating your machine allows you to control the amount you use.
