Seed Grain With Your Chisel Plow
Made and serviced in the U.S., the Seed-Air offers adjustable 6 to 12 in. row spacing with up to 90 seed runs - enough to cover a 45 ft. swath with 6 in. spacing, and 90 ft. with 12 in. spacing.
A special equalizer hitch levels the frame of the tillage implement and stabilizes shank depth. A ground wheel drive operates the device which meters seed into the air distribution system. The wheel automatically, lifts when the tillage implement is raised. A hydraulically operated high volume, low pressure fan distributes the seed from the unit's 120 bu. grain tank.
Incorporating the Seed-Air onto your existing tillage equipment doesn't interfere with foldup of the wings for transport. Liquid fertilizer can be adapted to the Seed-Air with placement boots and a trailer type nurse tank, or a piggy-back tank mounted on the tractor.
Base price of a 60 run unit is right at $14,000.
