End-Wheel Grain Drills
An easy way to seed into conventional tillage.
Optional furrow boots
Double-disk openers with aluminum boots work well in well-prepared seedbeds and dry soil. Blades bolt on to allow use of a broad range of depth-gauging attachments.
Double-disk openers with cast-iron boots are also available. They are heavier and have greater clearance inside of double-disk openers for better performance in wet, sticky soils.
Seed/fertilizer meter drive system
The seed and fertilizer metering systems are powered by the end wheel. A heavy-duty, high-strength No. 40 roller chain provides a positive drive. Spur gears and sprockets are machined to provide a more accurate fit for longer life. Gears can be interchanged for either a slow or fast speed.
Half-speed drive for fluted feed drills
The half-speed drive reduces the feed shaft speed by one-half, which allows for the very low seed rates required for crops such as rape and sorghum. It also permits higher seed index settings for large seeds such as soybeans. The resulting greater flute exposure reduces seed damage sometimes caused by forcing seeds through the opening between the shutoff and feed cup housing.
Field-installed agitator kits for BD11 and BD13 Grain Drills
Add a field-installed agitator to keep light, fluffy, odd-shaped, or inoculated seed feeding smoothly into meters.
The first three attachments listed are for BD11 Series End-Wheel Grain Drills.
The fourth attachment is for the BD1307 No-Till Grain Drill.
