Disengage rotating drive parts during transport, extending life of components.
HYDRAULIC OPENER LIFT / DOWN PRESSURE
A single hydraulic cylinder lifts openers out of the way for transport and end-row turns (inset). The same cylinder also applies down pressure to the 5-position down-pressure adjustment stop. This setting allows the operator to quickly change the amount of down pressure applied to openers.
Specialty seeds are expensive. Calibrating your machine allows you to control the amount you use.
T-HANDLE OPENER DEPTH ADJUSTMENT
Provides 18 different positions for accurate seed depth control.
PRESS WHEEL OPTIONS
Single press wheel choices include a 3"x13" double* or center rib press wheel that creates a crease in the soil for even emergence; a 2"x13" smooth press wheel; or a 3"x13" peak press wheel for arid areas. A 1"x12" double-V press wheel is also offered for 7½" spacing only.
END WHEEL DESIGN
Large end wheels maintain accurate seed placement on side hills and uneven terrain. Lockout hubs save drive components from wear.
Changing seed rates is quick and effortless with these permanently lubricated, sealed gearboxes.
00 SERIES OPENER
Great Plains 00 Series openers are designed for min-till fluted-feed drills. The 00 opener features 13.5", 4mm blades mounted on 205 triple-lip sealed bearings. The 00 opener has a ¼" lead opener blade. Hydraulic down pressure is transmitted from the toolbar to the heavy-duty down-pressure spring to apply ample penetration and depth control. A full-length seed tube delivers seed to the bottom of the trench.
