New Air Planter

Positive seed depth control, and a combination of air pressure and vacuum, are key features of the new Golden Air Planter introduced by Bridger Planters.
Regardless of ground contour, the new planter's patented flexible linkage system assures uniform depth of every seed, the Manufacturer points out. Seed openers are cradled between the gauge and press wheels of each planter unit to further help and maintain percise depth control on all terrain. For planting on beds, you can add bedsweeps which level the top and place the seed accurately.
The new planter features an exclusive combination of air pressure (for seed flotation) and air vacuum (for seed selection and release). A single pump operated from the tractor PTO provides both air pressure and air vacuum to each planter unit. A dual air chamber is built right into the main pull bar, permitting operation as a 4-row, 6-row or 8-row planter.
Available in 4, 6, or 8 rows. For more details, contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Bridger Farm Equipment, Box 1557, Jonesboro, Ark., 72401(ph. 501 932-8333).
