50' 3-Section Hydraulic Down-Pressure Drills
The new 3S-5000 brings a new level of productivity to box drills! Its vast 50' drilling width covers more ground in a single sweep while its 3.2 bushel-per-foot seed boxes hold 149-bushel of seed on board to reduce downtime between fills.
Even though it is big, its three sections and six sub-frames flex independently to provide unrivaled agility and ground-hugging capabilities. Sub-frames pivot around a line through the axles so, even on terraces and uneven terrain, the openers attack the ground at the proper angle rather than bulldozing or lifting like the competition. Add the unit's superior ability to place seed precisely with 00 Series Openers, and you'll find yourself with a drill our competition has only dreamed about.
All Great Plains Hydraulic Down-Pressure Drills fold to a narrow 15' for safe, convenient transporting.
Feature two independent sub-frames per box section, allowing greater flexibility and ground-hugging capabilities.
Highly flexible wing boxes provide excellent contour following. Couple that with the drill's constant hydraulic down pressure feature that constantly maintains pressure throughout the opener's entire range of motion - plus hydraulic weight transfer that keeps uniform weight to each box - and you have a drill that is unmatched in maintaining uniform seed depth.
