Recommended Truax Equipment For Construction Site Planting
Based on your application selection we feel the following Truax products are best suited for your needs.
OTG Seed Drill
ON THE GO GRASS DRILLS
Production agriculture demands versatility and dependability from its equipment. The Truax OTG drills, both grass and grain style, deliver the optimum seed placement by having no-till assemblies that hydraulically raise and lower on the go. Challenging litter and cover crops can be planted through because of the flexibility to raise the no-tills out of the way when encountering bare ground or lighter amounts of litter.
Time STEALING maintenance is lessened through the use of double row ball bearing in the double discs. Truax OTG's are the only grass and grain drills manufactured that uses these heavy duty bearings which are commonly found only in corn and bean planter discs.
"Creature friendly" features of the OTG drills lessen the stress of delivering results during long, endless days in the field. For example, the acre meter is conveniently located on the end cover for easy reading. Walk boards on both the front and rear of the drill makes for easier loading of the seed boxes.
ON THE GO GRAIN DRILLS
Sowing grains, beans, legumes and cool season grasses with the TRUAX "ON THE GO" grain drills is easily accomplished because the OTG has row dividers, agitators and metering cups to handle different sizes and types of seed.
Seed placement in changing field and site conditions with the "ON THE GO" drill is addressed by having no-tills that can be hydraulically raised and lowered from the tractor cab while planting, depending the amount and type of field litter.
Field size and project scope helps determine the size and configuration of Truax "ON THE GO" drill to utilize. The small OTG-7508, has all the features of the larger drills, yet is suited to sowing the small 10 to 20 acre projects. Four other sizes, up to the large 15 foot OTG-7522 can all be teamed with a multi-drill hitch to provide an overall planting width of 45' to handle the larger projects.
Trillion Broadcast Seeder
The Trillion does it all, firming and packing the soft, cloddy, loose soils before dropping and placing the seed and following up and pressing the seed in to place with dual, Brillion style, cultipacker rollers.
The "no-row effect", similar to the Pull Broadcasters, provides a more natural effect.
Hand collected and combine run seed can be metered and planted without fear of plugging.
Three point models, both a 5' and a 8' model, will handle the small, irregular sites and the larger 10' and 12' Trillions with dual rear transport wheels make quick work of large tracts of land.
Hand Seed Slinger - Electric Seed Slinger
Small, irregular, hard to access sites are easily seeded with either the hand operated Seed Slinger or 12 volt electric model mounted on a four wheeler or the tail gate of a pickup.
The two compartment seed hopper allows you to sow both very small seed such as switch grass and small forbs at the same time as the extremely fluffy natives. NOTE: THE DUAL PICKER WHEELS AND AUGER STYLE AGITATOR DO NOT PERMIT THE SOWING OF COOL SEASON GRASSES, SLICKER GRAINS OR THE DISTRIBUTION OF FERTILIZER.
The versatility that can be achieved with the Seed Slingers adds to the value of this tool. Whether reseeding logging roads by using a hand Seed Slinger while riding up and down the regrade on horseback, seeding islands in a wetland while traveling in a skimmer boat, or seeding fragile shorelines while walking on foot the Seed Slingers meet the challenge. The electric model adds productivity and increased versatility when snow/frost seeding in the early spring, sowing of soft sand dunes, or the wide open spaces along a pipeline right of way.
