Huge Air Seeder Is Biggest In North America
Farm equipment keeps on getting bigger, and one example is this 700-bu., tow-behind air seeder from Bourgault Industries. It was on display at the recent KMOT Ag Expo in Minot, N. Dak. The 6700 ST is divided into four internal compartments and distributes seed on-the-go. The photo shows it towed behind a 75-ft. toolbar.
  The unit is loaded and unloaded by a 10-in. dia., hydraulic-operated conveyor with a 15-in. wide belt. The conveyor is positioned with hydraulic cylinders controlled by a wireless handheld remote. The low profile hopper allows the tank to be filled from semi trailers and provides 100 percent cleanout. Load/unload rate is about 110 bu. per minute.
  "As far as we know it's the biggest production air seeder on the market," says the company.
