Drill Cleaner Vacuums Seed out of Hoppers
The vacuum nozzle is made to fit a large 2¢-in. dia. vacuum hose but, with an adapter, will also fit smaller 1 3/16-in. dia. hoses. With the special nozzle in place, cleanup is simply a matter of slipping it down into the hopper and seed pickup below.
"On some drills you can spend as long as 2¢ hours taking them apart to get all the seed out," says Ryden noting that farmers who don't clean out drills face dockage losses at harvest time for mixed grain.
The drill cleaning nozzle sells for $12.50.
