New Feeder Cup Design

NEW FEEDER CUP

The progressive, new feeder cup on the BD7600 Series Drills allows producers to meter large seed, small seeds, and fertilizer — all through the main box of the drill. Feeder cups have been rigorously tested for durability and designed to meter all types of seeds and fertilizer with greater accuracy and easier calibration to save producers both time and money. A host of features makes this feeder cup the most innovative feeder cup available on the market today.

 

FEATURES:

3 POSITION SEED GATE

New seed gates have 3 positions:  narrow and wide openings to tailor input into meters, or closed completely for skip-rows.

 

CLEAR WIND COVER

Clear cover keeps high winds from disturbing seed flow and pivots out of the way for closer inspection of seed meter wheels.

 

THREE METER WHEELS

Small and regular seed wheels are standard with each feed cup; a third seed wheel for large seed/fertilizer is optional.

 

REMOVEABLE FUNNEL

Single-handed operation to drop the bottom of the seed cup funnel for quick calibration and inspection of seed meters.

 

SINGLE SEEDGATE LEVER

Output seed gates are on a common shaft, which lets the operator change all output gates per box at one time from a central location.

 

CHEVRON SEEDGATE

Chevron-shaped seed gates distribute seed more evenly into the seed tubes for improved spacing accuracy in the seed trench.

 

ROCK PROTECTION

The preloaded output gate expels large obstacles from the feeder cup, then springs back into position with no harm to the cup.

 

5-POSITION OUTPUT GATE

Positions 1-4 are available to accom-modate seeds of various sizes. Position 5 completely opens up the seed cup for easy clean out.

 

EASY DISASSEMBLY

No tools are needed to completely disassemble the seed cups for easy maintenance.

 

ALL SEEDS IN ONE METER

Each new seed meter comes with meter wheels for small seeds and regular seeds. Meter wheels are staggered for optimum distribution.
