Similar to the 3P500, the 3P600 is a 3-Point Min-Till drill. This 6' unit is designed to get into smaller spaces like wooded areas, orchards, or vineyards. It excels when seeding into fully prepared and minimum tillage plots. End users can add the optional small seeds box and plant two different seeds simultaneously. Like the 3P500, the 3P600 is ground driven and features 4-speed gearboxes for fast seed rate changes. It is equipped with rugged 00 Series openers to provide accurate and consistent seed placement.
Adjust frame height so coulters are ½” to 1” deeper than desired seeding depth.

What is my seed rate setting for my Compact Drill?
Refer to the Operator’s Manual (manual can be found on Related Pages link below) for seed charts and for step by set calibration.
What coulter do I want to order?
The coulter chosen is determined by soil conditions and how much you want to disturb the soil in front of the opener. The 5/16” Fluted Blade offers low soil disturbance for pasture renovation. The 5/8” Turbo Blade provides maximum penetration and performance.
How large of a tractor do I need?
All compact drills need to stay in the HP range stated in the Operator's Manual (manual can be found on Related Products Page below). Lift capacity of the 3-point is critical on all 3-point drills.
How do I adjust Seed Depth?
Using T handle above press wheels adjust seed depth. Forward is deeper, rearward is shallower seed depth.

The drill can be ordered with the weight bracket, and then weight can be added as needed. Weight needed is typically 100# per foot.

No, load seed at field only.
Can I add seed boxes to my drill later on?
Yes, seed boxes can be added at a later date. Please note, there may be a longer lead time when ordering seed boxes separate from the unit, and there will be some parts not utilized from the kit.
