Seedcup "Curtain" For Grain Drills
"It eliminates the hassle of covering your drill with a cumbersome tarp and tying it down every time there's a threat of rain," says W. Harvey Roberts, inventor of a new bolt-on "curtain" for grain drills that prevents rain from getting into seed cups.
Designed for older grain drills like his 1984 20-ft. Marliss, the canvas curtains fasten to both the back and front of the seedbox with pieces of 2 in. wide strap iron.
Curtains are simply raised up by hand to service the seed cup mechanisms.
"I've also discovered the curtains keep the dust and dirt thrown up from tractor duals out of the seed cups, which should help to prolong the life of the fluted seed cup mechanism," notes Roberts.
Roberts hopes to produce a curtain kit for sale at a price of $200.
