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.

Do I need to add weight?

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

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.
