Time-Saving Seed Filters Mount On Deere PlantersUnverferth CCS Planter Fills make constantly climbing stairs a thing of the past for growers who use Deere CCS planters and drills. Time and labor-saving units are available in either a conveyor or auger model.
Variable-speed conveyors are 16’x6” and feature a collapsible hopper and a 6” tube with an 8” cupped and cleated belt for gently unloading up to 12 bushels per minute. The conveyor models for planters feature a gas-spring lift-assist for easy lifting and sliding of the conveyor into the middle of the planter for transport. Conveyors for drills store across the rear of the drill within the transport height and width for enhanced roadway safety.
Auger models feature 18 ft. by 6 in. steel-tube construction for enhanced unloading height and strength. Augers are available with choice of three flighting options. Cupped-steel or cupped plastic flighting moves seed at up to 10 bushels per minute. The auger model locks in place for transport efficiency and safety and fits easily within the transport width of the planter.
Conveniently placed dual on/off controls and standard telescoping downspout on both models allow for easy, one-person filling of the seedbox from the ground platform.
Models are available for 1690, 1890, 1990 CCS drills and 1770, 1790 CCS, NT and DB series planters. Growers should contact their local Unverferth dealer for complete details or check www. unverferth.com.
