MIN TILL Model 800

Our Great Plains 8′ (2.43m) Min-Till Drill (800) uses the field-proven 00 Series Opener to properly place seed. This rugged opener utilises 13-1/2″ (34cm), 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″- (4.4cm) wide fluted feed metering system. It utilises 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 fertiliser and a small seeds attachment are standard equipment for Australian conditions.

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, a folding tongue and agitators inside the seed box are all standard equipment.

Disengages all drive components, reducing wear and tear during transport.

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.

Equipped with our rugged 00 Series Openers to provide accurate and consistent seed placement. Our 00 Openers have 7″ of stagger to allow residue to easily flow through the unit. Inside the opener, our full length seed tube gently guides the seed all the way to the bottom of the trench while the seed flap ensures the seed stays in place, eliminating the seed “bounce” that is created by competitive drills. The trailing press wheels maintain proper opener depth, close the seed trench, and firm the seed into the soil. T-handles quickly adjust the press wheels and allow for small incremental changes in planting depth. Range of 90 to 180lbs (41kg to 82kg) of consistent down-pressure on press wheels.
