Product Description

Cover Crop Seeder

The Turbo-Seeder™ attachment for Turbo-Max® and Turbo-Till® offers a highly productive method for broadcast seeding cover crops with a vertical tillage tool.

With Turbo-Seeder, you can simultaneously till your soil, size residue, and plant cover crops in one pass, while also reducing labor, fuel, and maintenance costs of conventional drills.

Produced in partnership with Gandy of Owatonna, Minnesota, Turbo-Seeder is a complete, easy-to-install attachment featuring a 36-bushel hopper, 24 outlets, and a split shaft controlled by two separate clutches. The meter shaft is powered by a 12-volt, 25-amp motor, and an 8-gpm hydraulically-driven fan delivers seed to the diffusers. With both black and red metering wheels, Turbo-Seeder can place high rates of cover crops and small grains such as oats, wheat, and rice barley.

Currently available for 2400, 3000, and 3500 Turbo-Max models and 2400TT and 3000TT Turbo-Till models. The Turbo-Seeder kit also includes a ladder and walkboard for easy access to the hopper.

Reap the benefits of both cover crops and true vertical tillage. Protect your soil, and the environment, with Turbo-Seeder from Great Plains.
