Product Description

45' Cultivator Air Drill

The new Field Cultivator Air Drill from Great Plains is a high-productivity solution for High Plains farmers who plant large acreages with a conventional tillage system. By combining a Great Plains Field Cultivator with proven, reliable Great Plains 00 Series Drill Openers, this unique machine allows operators to till and seed at the same time with the same tool, eliminating the need for an extra man and tractor during the seeding process.

This combination of tillage and seeding operations sets the Field Cultivator Air Drill apart from other air drill products, as seed is directly placed into moist, freshly-tilled soil for quick, uniform emergence.

The Field Cultivator Air Drill’s base design is an 8544 Great Plains Field Cultivator, featuring the Max-Mix™ shank pattern. On an effective 7-inch spacing, the Max-Mix pattern, followed by a seedbed conditioner reel, creates the perfect seedbed while eliminating weeds and uniformly mixing soil, residue, and fertilizer (if applying). Great Plains’ exclusive 00 Series openers then accomplish optimum seed-to-soil contact. The implement couples to a large-capacity air cart for uniform delivery of seed and fertilizer.

Save time and money – both in fuel savings and depreciation hours on the tractor – with this productive tillage and seeding combination!
