Great Plains Introduces Versatile 12-Foot Drill

SALINA, Kansas. – Great Plains announces the addition of a new 12ˈ no-till drill. The Great Plains 1206NT End Wheel Drill builds off the success of its predecessor, the 1205NT, to provide a versatile, economical seeding solution.

With upgraded 06 Series Openers and a new optional native grass seed box, the 1206NT can seed up to three different seeds simultaneously at different rates. The drill’s fluted feed seed cups are designed to deliver a wide variety of seeds with the precise depth control of the Great Plains no-till seed placement system. Additional seed box options include a small seeds box and a fertilizer box, offering producers a variety of box combinations to choose from.

End wheel design further enhances the 1206’s reliability and maneuverability. With all ground-working components in line with the end wheels, openers are prevented from sideloading when working on rolling terrain and contours.

With integrated weight brackets, weight can easily be added for improved penetration through heavy no-till conditions. A 4-speed gearbox allows metering rates to be changed quickly and conveniently from a single location. The drill is also equipped with hydraulically adjustable coulter depth and an automatic clutch that disengages when the drill is raised.
