TurboSeeder 680L Seed Hopper

Seed Hopper

Reap the benefits of both cover crops and true vertical tillage with the Turbo-Seeder™ attachment from Great Plains. Now available in two different sizes, this seeder can be installed on selected Turbo-Max® models.

Turbo-Seeder offers a cost-effective, highly productive method for seeding cover crops with a vertical tillage finish tool. With Turbo-Seeder, you can simultaneously till your soil, size residue, and plant cover crops in one pass, while also reducing labor, fuel, and the maintenance costs of conventional planters.

Produced in partnership with Gandy of Owatonna, Minnesota, Turbo-Seeder is a complete, easy-to-install attachment featuring your choice of a 19 or 36-bushel hopper. The meter shaft is powered by a 12-volt, 25-amp motor, and an 8-gpm hydraulically-driven fan delivers seed to the diffusers. Four seed-rate meter wheels are included to perfectly match your seed. Turbo-Seeder can place high rates of cover crops and small grains such as oats, wheat, rice, and barley. The Turbo-Seeder kit also includes a ladder and walkboard for easy access to the hopper.
