Great Plains designed its 5′ (154m) 3P500 and 6′ (1.83m) 3P600 Min-Till Drill to get into places big drills simply can’t – like wooded areas, orchards, and vineyards. It is ground-driven and is excellent for seeding into fully prepared and minimum tillage plots. They feature 4-speed gearboxes for fast seed rate changes. It has a seedbox capacity ranges of 10 bushel (352L). A small seeds box with agitator is standard on our 3P500 and 3P600 models to plant two different seeds at the same time.
Other features found on these models include a highly visible seed level indicator; extremely accurate fluted feed cups; V-bottom inserts on the inside of the seedbox that allow all the seed to be metered; a convenient crank to calibrate seed; watertight lids that stay open for easy filling; and splash guards that prevent seed loss.
