Seed boxes have a large capacity for longer intervals between stops for refilling. Plain grain or combination grain/fertilizer seed boxes are available to match the producer's needs. The versatile grain/fertilizer box has a three-position divider that can be set for 100 percent grain, 60 percent grain, or 40 percent grain.
The bulkheads in the seedbox reduce material shifting in the box for increased seeding efficiency.
A sight glass, located near the end of the box, allows the operator to view seed level at a glance.
Steel footboards with 25.4-mm (1-in.) diameter perforations allow convenient, safe access to the seed/fertilizer boxes.
In-line box design allows quick and easy filling.
A grass seeder attachment is available (see attachments in the Ag Sales Manual). The grass seeder attaches to the front of the seedbox and is commonly used for grasses and alfalfa.
Tank shield plates are available from Parts (see attachment for field conversion),
Protects box-end panels from damage
