CrustBuster/Speed King Introduces No-Till Conservation Drill

10 Sep 2023

imageThe CrustBuster/Speed King All Plant No-Till Conservation Drill can plant up to three different conservation grass seeds together in one pass. Three different seed boxes can plant three seed varieties simultaneously.


Its seed boxes are designed and proportioned for different seed volumes and rates. The drill also has the ability to plant from only one seed box without operating the other two. The largest seed box at the front can be used as a primary grain reservoir for seeding crops, or it can be used together with the other two seed boxes containing legume seed and/or fluffy grass seed for conservation work.


This drill is equipped with CrustBuster’s Parallel Linkage Opener, engineered to create constant down pressure throughout its operating range. Consistent planting depth control is achieved with parallel linkage and easily adjustable constant down pressure. It is designed so the openers remain parallel to the ground at uniform depth throughout the opener's travel, creating a constant relationship between the blade and press wheel to achieve consistent depth control.


Offset blades penetrate firm soil and create the ultimate seed furrow, the company says. The leading notched blade with a 3/4-in. offset gives maximum penetration and trash flow. Five quick-change down-pressure adjustments from 100-500 lbs. per opener aid in attaining consistent planting depth. The No-Till Conservation Drill is available in 10-, 13-, 15-, 20- and 25-ft. widths.
