Product Description

5' Mounted Min-Till Compact Drill

Great Plains designed its 5' (3P500) Min-Till Drill to get into places big drills simply can’t – like wooded areas, orchards, and vineyards. It is ground driven and is excellent for seeding into fully prepared and minimum tillage plots. Our 3P500s feature 4-speed gearboxes for fast seed rate changes. It has a seedbox capacity ranges of 10 bushel. An optional small seeds box can be added to our 3P500 models to plant two different seeds at the same time.

3P500s are equipped with our rugged 00 Series Openers to provide accurate and consistent seed placement. Our 00 Openers have 7" of stagger to allow residue to easily flow through the unit. Inside the opener, our full length seed tube gently guides the seed all the way to the bottom of the trench while the seed flap ensures the seed stays in place, eliminating the seed “bounce” that is created by competitive drills. The trailing press wheels maintain proper opener depth, close the seed trench, and firm the seed into the soil. T-handles quickly adjust the press wheels and allow for small incremental changes in planting depth.

Other features found on these models include a highly visible seed level indicator; extremely accurate fluted feed cups; V-bottom inserts on the inside of the seedbox that allow all the seed to be metered; a convenient crank to calibrate seed; watertight lids that stay open for easy filling; and splash guards that prevent seed loss.
