Features

00 SERIES OPENER

Great Plains 00 Series openers are designed for min-till fluted-feed drills. The 00 opener features 13.5", 4mm blades mounted on 205 triple-lip sealed bearings. The 00 opener has a ¼" lead opener blade. Hydraulic down pressure is transmitted from the toolbar to the heavy-duty down-pressure spring to apply ample penetration and depth control. A full-length seed tube delivers seed to the bottom of the trench.

CALIBRATION CRANK

Specialty seeds are expensive. Calibrating your machine allows you to control the amount you use.

END WHEEL DESIGN

Large end wheels maintain accurate seed placement on side hills and uneven terrain. Lockout hubs save drive components from wear.

HYDRAULIC OPENER LIFT / DOWN PRESSURE

A single hydraulic cylinder lifts openers out of the way for transport and end-row turns (inset). The same cylinder also applies down pressure to the 5-position down-pressure adjustment stop. This setting allows the operator to quickly change the amount of down pressure applied to openers.

LOCKOUT HUBS

Disengage rotating drive parts during transport, extending life of components.

PRESS WHEEL OPTIONS

Single press wheel choices include a 3"x13" center rib press wheel that creates a crease in the soil for even emergence; a 2"x13" smooth press wheel; or a 3"x13" peak press wheel for arid areas. A 1"x12" double-V press wheel is also offered for 7½" spacing only.

4-SPEED GEARBOX

Changing seed rates is quick and effortless with these permanently lubricated, sealed gearboxes.

T-HANDLE OPENER DEPTH ADJUSTMENT

Provides 18 different positions for accurate seed depth control.

OPTIONAL AIR DESIGN SCRAPERS

The ideal solution for higher residue, moist conditions.

OPTIONAL FERTILIZER BOX

Easy cleanout and six-point meter wheels accurately meter fertilizer.

OPTIONAL SMALL SEEDS BOX ATTACHMENT

Mounts directly to the back of the main seed box. Utilizes a smaller version of the fluted feed cup to accurately meter tiny seeds like alfalfa and wildflowers.

OPTIONAL SEED BOX AGITATOR

Eliminates bridging and provides consistent seed flow to the seed cups.
