Model FLEXII - Grass Drill

0

Truax Drills are designed to plant grasses and legumes on a variety of site conditions.

  • Double disc furrow openers and depth bands optimize seed placement and seed to soil contact.
  • Multiple seed boxes give you the flexibility to seed native fluffy seeds, cool season species, small grains, legumes, and wildflowers.
  • Planting can be accomplished as no-till and interseeding in most conditions, as well as on a prepared seedbed, to conventional seed beds.

Drilling into residue cover or interseeding into sod presents no problem for a Truax Drill equipped with our specially designed no-till attachment.

Truax No-Tills:

  • Prevent hair pinning and crimping residue.
  • Create a micro-seedbed for smooth operation of disc openers.
  • Styles available
    • 13-1/2 inch concave, notched blade for interseeding or no-till in light residue cover.
    • 18 inch concave, notched blade is designed for loose or heavy residue.
    • Caster Style Wavy Blade. This 24 wave 18 inch blade is an option for light residue conditions.
    • Caster Style Wavy Blade. This 13 wave 18 inch blade is more aggressive than the 24 wave blade.

Truax FLEXII Series Grass Drills With Dual Rear Transport Wheels

The Truax Rear Transport Wheels are the answer for moving wider drills on narrow roadways, especially when meeting oncoming traffic. The dual wheels remain on the road surface while the end of the drill hangs over the shoulder and ditch.

Narrow, crowned road centers are no linger a challenge with the 12-14 inches of ground clearance. This feature can also be a real advantage when crossing swales, ditch bottoms, and traveling field roads.

After obtaining necessary travel permits and when other conditions apply, the drill equipped with Dual Rear Transport Wheels are easy to load on trailers with the transport wheels rolling up trailer ramps.

Truax FLEXII Series Grass Drills With Rear Wheel Drive

Bold Solutions For… Different Planting Problems

Rear drive Drills offer an option for seeding ditch bottoms, next to guard rails, between the rows in orchards or vineyards, or other restricted areas.

The rear wheel configuration provides extra ground clearance when the Drill is in the transport position.

The same high ground clearance on end wheel drive Drills can be achieved with optional rear transport wheels.

TRUAX – the global leader in the manufacture of drills and planters to sow native grasses, legumes and grains has set the standard for drill features to meter and place these seeds in order to achieve optimal establishment. When reviewing the features of different brands of drills to meet your specific needs be sure to include the following which are common to all Truax drills and planters: Including the On The Go (OTG Series), Flex II Series, Trillions, and Pull Broadcasters.

COMMON TO ALL TRUAX DRILLS

  • An optional Output Reduction Kit is available to reduce seeding rates for specialized applications including low rate CRP mixes.
  • Tapered roller bearings with integral rubber seal on rear bearings used on all no·till coulters.
  • Separately metered seed boxes for grains, small seed and legumes, and a third box for fluffy native species.
  • Depth of planting controlled by metal depth bands on all planting discs.
  • Digital acre meter strategically placed on end of drill for easy access.
  • Ground clearance of disc blades when in transit will be 10″ or more, press wheel clearance to be 14″ or more.
  • Optional 3″ x 16″ smooth crown leading press wheels that are interchangeable with the leading no-till.
  • Trouble free delivery of all seeds from the seed boxes to the drill openers. This is accomplished through large seed boots and by maintaining a vertical straight-line flow in the fluffy seed boot, a nearly vertical drop from the cool season/small grain box, and a smooth tube from the small seed box.
  • Seed from all seed boxes is delivered between the double disc openers. The rolling disc opener carries the seed into the soil for proper seed placement. Seed is not broadcast behind the disc opener.
  • EZ-OFF depth bands on every double disc control planting depth. Shallow planting is required for most grass and legume species. A shallow, uniform planting depth results in a uniform seedling emergence. Depth bands are available in four sizes depending on the desired planting depth and soil texture.
  • Scrapers on the disc openers and the depth bands keep moist soil from building up and affecting planting depth and seed placement.
  • Press wheels operate independent from the planter assembly. The press wheels on Truax Drill track directly behind the disc openers to firm and press the soil around the newly planted seed without controlling the depth the planting unit is operating.
  • Interseeding or no-till drilling in crop residue or sod is easily accomplished using the concave, notched, fixed mount Trash Plows, or the optional 24 or 13 wave coulter on a caster style mount.
  • End wheel drive powers the seed metering mechanism to assure a constant flow of seed to the disc openers under all planting conditions.
  • A tongue style hitch easily converts to three-point style by adding Category 2 or 3 hitch pins to pre-drilled holes in the frame. A folding tongue is an option for ease of transport and storage.

TRUAX – we have continuous improvement to the Truax line of drills to better meet the challenges of the owners and operators of the FlexII Series of drills, Trillions, and Pull Broadcasters. Insist on the following “features” when selecting a drill for your next project.
