Product Description

Cover Crop Seeder

Reap the benefits of both cover crops and true vertical tillage with the Turbo-Seeder™ attachment from Great Plains! Now available in two different sizes, this seeder can be installed on select Turbo-Max®, Turbo-Till®, or Turbo-Chopper® models.

Turbo-Seeder offers a cost-effective, highly productive method for 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 the maintenance costs of conventional planters.

Produced in partnership with Gandy of Owatonna, Minnesota, Turbo-Seeder is a complete, easy-to-install attachment that will come with either a 24 or 45 cu. ft. hopper. The meter shaft is powered by a 12-volt, 25-amp motor, and an 8-gpm hydraulically-driven fan delivers seed to the diffusers. Four seed rate meter wheels are included to match your seed rate requirements. Turbo-Seeder can place high rates of cover crops and small grains, such as oats, wheat, rice, and rye grass. The Turbo-Seeder kit also includes a ladder and walkboard for easy access to the hopper.

Protect your soil, and the environment, with Turbo-Seeder from Great Plains.
