3P500/600

Min Till

Great Plains designed its 5′ (154m) 3P500 and 6′ (1.83m) 3P600 Min-Till Drill to get into places big drills simply can’t – like wooded areas, orchards, and vineyards. It is ground-driven and is excellent for seeding into fully prepared and minimum tillage plots. They feature 4-speed gearboxes for fast seed rate changes. It has a seedbox capacity ranges of 10 bushel (352L). A small seeds box with agitator is standard on our 3P500 and 3P600 models to plant two different seeds at the same time.

Other features found on these models include a highly visible seed level indicator; extremely accurate fluted feed cups; V-bottom inserts on the inside of the seedbox that allow all the seed to be metered; a convenient crank to calibrate seed; watertight lids that stay open for easy filling; and splash guards that prevent seed loss.

Small Seeds Attachment

Utilises a smaller version of the fluted feed cup to accurately meter tiny seeds like alfalfa and wildflowers

4-Speed Gearbox

Lifetime lubricated heavy-duty gearboxes make seed rate changes quick and effortless.

3-Point Mounted

Category 1 and Category 2 hitches for easy mounting to different tractors.

GROUND DRIVE

Positive ground drive with eight positions to get the right planting depth for your seed.
