Product Description

6' Mounted No-Till Compact Drill

Seed close to field edges with the 3P606NT 3-Point Mounted No-Till Drill. This rugged 6' seeder is ideal when space is limited or when maneuvering among trees and other obstacles.

Loaded with features, this heavy-duty no-till includes 450 lb. pre-loaded coulters, an easily-accessible calibration crank, a ground-driven metering system, and rain-tight seed box lids.

Equipped with the finest double disc min-till opener, the drill’s lead coulters are staggered 4" to aid in residue flow while preparing a mini-seedbed for the 06 Series Openers to plant into. Coulter blade options include 5/16" fluted or our exclusive 5/8" Turbo Blades.

All 3P606NTs come standard with V-bottom seed box inserts. A native grass seed box can be added for seeding big and little bluestem, smooth brome, and other “fluffy” native grass seed mixes. A small seeds box, which is a smaller version of the standard fluted feed box, can also be added to accurately meter small seeds like clover and alfalfa. Add both boxes to seed three different types of seed at the same time – all at different rates.

Product Features

VERSATILE BOX COMBINATIONS

Seed up to three different seeds at the same time (main seedbox, Native Grass, Small Seeds).

GROUND DRIVE

Eight- position positive ground drive also works as the front depth gauging wheel.

3-POINT MOUNTED

Category II 3-point mounting setup.

T-Handle Opener Depth Adjustment

Provides 18 different positions for accurate depth control.

Press Wheel Options

Choices include, from left, 3"x13" double rib*; 3"x13" center rib; 2"x13" smooth; 1"x12" double-V; or double wedge-style press wheels that create a pinching action to close the seed trench.

Lead Coulter Options

Choose between a 5/16" fluted coulter blade (left) that penetrates easily for minimum tillage or a 5/8" Turbo coulter blade (right) that is more aggressive and prepares a mini seedbed ahead of the opener. Preloaded springs offer 450 lbs. of down pressure per row on the leading coulter.

Large Box Capacity

With a 2 bu./ft. capacity, a larger seed box reduces downtime and covers more acres per fill.

Fluted Seed Cups

With powdered metal flutes, these 1¾" seed cups deliver outstanding accuracy.

4-Speed Gearbox

Changing seed rates is quick and effortless with these permanently lubricated, sealed gearboxes.

06 Series Opener

The 06 Series row unit utilizes the “Fluff and Plant” no-till system with an integrally-mounted coulter to cut residue and prepare a mini seedbed for the trailing double-disc opener. The opener discs are 13.5" in diameter and 4mm thick with 205 triple-lip sealed bearings, and ¼" opener disc lead. Our unique full-length seed tube design and trailing flap control the seed all the way to the bottom of the seed trench where the seed stays in place.

Customer Testimonials

From Pierre R., Moultrie, GA:

"I purchased the 3P606-NT compact drill to plant my soybeans and various other seeds for production and food plots. Great Plains was a great choice as I have successfully planted my beans for the 2020 season. The versatility of the drill is evident by its ability to plant sorghum, sunflowers, sun hemp, and peas with quick and easy adjustments. This was my first try at planting myself and I am very please with the performance of the 3P606-NT drill."

From Cole P., North Central Colorado:

"We are a land management company serving Northern Colorado. Over the last few years, we have gotten into the seeding and reclamation industry to include pasture seeding and renovations, primary seeding on commercial landscaping jobs, roadside seeding, and erosion control. We started out with a Land Pride all-purpose seeder and had success with that, so this fall we purchased a new 3P606NT and couldn't be happier. It is very well constructed with thick steel and gussets to strengthen the parts.
