Great Plains 3P606NT 3-Point Mounted No-Till Drills allow you to get close to field edges and, with our proven ground drive, no hydraulics are needed. Standard equipment on this machine is small seed box with agitator and weight brackets.
This 6′ (1.83m), 3-point mounted no-till drill is ideal for manoeuvring around obstacles when space is limited or for seeding close to field edges.
This heavy-duty no-till drill is loaded with features, including 450-pound (204kg) pre-loaded coulters, a calibration crank that is convenient to access, a ground-driven metering system, rain-tight seedbox lids, and our finest double disk no-till opener. This rugged 6′ (1.83m) seeder is ideal when space is limited or when maneuvering among trees and other obstacles is required. The lead coulters have 4″ (10cm) of stagger to aid in residue flow while preparing a mini-seedbed for the 06 Series Openers to plant into. Coulter blade is our exclusive 5/8″ (16mm) Turbo blades.
VERSATILE BOX COMBINATIONS
Seed up to three different seeds at the same time (main seedbox, native grass, small seeds).
All 3P606NTs come standard with a fluted feed seedbox. A native grass seedbox is added for seeding big and little bluestem, smooth brome, and other “fluffy” native grass seed mixes. A small seeds box, which is a smaller version of our standard fluted feed box, is also added to accurately meter small seeds like clover and alfalfa. All three have been added to seed three different types of seed at the same time – all at different rates.
Eight- position positive ground drive also works as the front depth gauging wheel.
Category II 3-point mounting setup.
“06” Series Opener
The 06 Series Row unit by Great Plains utilises the “fluff and Plant” no-till system with an intergrally mounted coulter to cut residue and prepare a mini seedbed for the trailing double disc opener.
Opener discs are 13.5″ (34cm) in diameter with 4mm thick blades, 205 triple-lip sealed bearings, and 1/4″ (19mm) opener disc lead.
A unique seed tube design and trailing flap control the seed all the way to the bottom of the seed trench where the seed stays in place.
Pre loader coulter springs offer 405lbs (204kg) of down pressure per row on the leading coulter with a range of 90 to 180lbs (41kg to 82kg) of consistent down-pressure on press wheels.
