Poor man's drill fill
"It's very effective and inexpensive," says Keith Farley, Kimball, Neb., who's designed a "poor man's" drill fill for filling grain drills from the back of trucks.
The drill fill consists of a plywood slide. The truck is driven alongside the drill to within a few feet and the slide extended down from the side of the truck box to the drill seed-boxes. The slide consists simply of a triangular piece of plywood with 1 by 4-in. sides. The slide narrows up to about 6-in. at one end and is about wide enough to load with a scoop shovel at the other end. A "stop" under the narrow end rests against the lip of the seedbox while the other end simply rests against the truck box. Farley painted the slide with an oil base paint to give it a slick finish. He says it could be built to almost any length, depending on needs.
