When Unverferth introduced the first self-filling Seed Runner, it revolutionized the bulk seed handling industry with its patented design which pivoted the conveyor 180 for easy self-filling from ground level.

Today, we are excited to announce a new series of this patented product that is sure to bring your operation to a new level of efficiency. A new, low profile tank design with large top opening, patented 5-ply rubber conveyor belt design and Smooth-Start conveyor engagement just to name a few. Increased tank capacities and undercarriage options on models 4955DXL and longer conveyor on models 4955DXL.

The new, patented 5-ply rubber conveyor belt design features offset rows of cupped cleats to minimize seed damage while providing a greater carrying capacity:
o For the quickest unloading, choose the 10" conveyor on model 4955DXL featuring unloading speeds up to 45 bushels per minute
o Filling a larger, central fill planter or drill? The 8 conveyor features an unloading speed of up to 35 bushels per minute
o Filling individual planter or drill boxes? Do it with precise control with the 6 conveyor featuring unloading speeds up to 16 bushels per minute

Smooth-Start conveyor engagement gently brings the conveyor belt up to maximum speed to increase belt life

Electronic speed control module allows the operator to adjust the speed of the conveyor belt independently from the engine

All models are standard with two downspouts:
o 4' flex spout on all models ideal for filling central fill planters or drills
o Rubber funnel spout on model 4955DXL for easy self-filling
o 2-Stage downspout on all other models ideal for filling individual planter boxes

Tool-free removable belt access cover allows you to easily determine belt tension

The redesigned over-center hopper lock with larger rubber hopper intake increases seed flow

Standard canvas hopper cover with elastic band holds tightly around the hopper opening to safeguard contents

The conveyor features a patented self-filling design for easily filling the seed tender from ground level

Conveyor spring-lift assist for added ease when positioning the conveyor into the self-filling position

DXL models feature a 24' long single-stage conveyor measured from top to bottom bearing
o Model 4955DXL features a max unloading height of 16'6"

Self-filling is quick and easy with tool-free downspout removal

Cleaning out seed between varieties is a breeze using the tool-free removable hinged door at the bottom of the conveyor
o Model 4955DXL features a standard 3-function wireless remote

Hydraulically operated vertical height adjustment allows you to quickly position the conveyor where you need it:
o 4955DXL Models = 90 inches of adjustment

The conveyor can be positioned in the rear or swung 180 degrees to the front for road transport

Conveyor arm locking mechanism allows you to quickly and conveniently lock or unlock the conveyor from the pivot arm

Stainless-steel conveyor rollers and turntable plates provide maximum durability and 3/4 locking increments stops the end of the conveyor every 10 for added versatility

Protecting your investment is important to you and the 55-Series Seed Runner tenders are designed to handle seed with the greatest care:
o The conveyor inlet features patented side seals and a brush-seal-brush design to prevent seed from back feeding into the hopper and minimizing seed damage

The new extended-length rounded conveyor hood is rubber lined for enhanced seed flow and protection

A top-mounted, 6 cubic inch hydraulic motor pulls the belt forward, keeping it tight for the most efficient and gentlest seed movement

The new tank design features a low profile and oversized top opening for enhanced stability and easy self-filling
o Model 4955DXL features an 8' wide by 14'6" long top opening

Additional viewing windows in the upper portion of the tank and standard fill light indicators provide enhanced visibility of the seed level during the loading process
