Add on drill fillYou can fill big drill hoppers quick and easy with a new drill fill system specifically designed for new generation no-till and minimum till drills with their big hoppers.
Kasco Mfg. Co., says its horizontal 6-in. dia. plastic auger, fitted with brush flighting, mounts across the top of the hopper and folds out of the way to allow opening and closing of lids. You can buy the horizontal auger by itself and use your own auger to fill it or buy a vertical swing away auger that mounts across the back of the drill and lets you use virtually any type of wagon or dump truck to deliver seed to the field, making it easier to change varieties back and forth as needed.
Both horizontal (sells for $1,250) and vertical ($1,200) augers are powered by hydraulic motors which may be hooked together in series so one set of hydraulic hoses runs both augers.
Kasco also recently introduced a new add-on coil tine harrow that attaches to the back of the drill and spreads and evenly scatters residue on no-till ground. "For a minimum investment ($659 to 729), it covers seed more evenly, ensuring better germination," says Phil Kaster of Kasco.
