Trillion Broadcast Seeder

Trillion Broadcast Seeder

The Trillion-Broadcast Seeder meets the challenge for shallow seed placement in a prepared seedbed by broadcast seeding on the surface and achieving seed-to-soil contact with two heavy duty cultipacker rollers.

 

 

The result is a broadcast seeding, eliminating the row effect, on a prepared seedbed planted at a shallow depth.

Trillion seed boxes utilize the standard Truax design to handle a variety of seed types…

  • A small seed box in front for legumes or other small, smooth, slick seed types
  • A fluffy seed box in the middle with an auger/agitator and picker wheels for those hard to seed fluffy seeds.
  • A cool season seed box in the back for some grass species or cover crops.
  • Row dividers in the small seed and fluffy seed boxes keep seed distributed across the machine.
  • Row dividers can be added to the cool season box as an option.
  • A derailleur style speed changer controls seed output from the fluffy seed box.
  • Separate slide levers on the small seed and cool season boxes set the openings for seed flow to the fluted seed metering cups.
  • Seed output from each seed box is calibrated independent from the other boxes.

Trillion Broadcast Seeder RowsBaffles direct seed as a broadcast seeding between the cultipacker rollers.

  • The leading roller crushes clods, removes air pockets, and presses down small stones forming a smooth, firm seedbed in front of seed drop.
  • The second cultipacker roller splits the shallow ridges formed by the front roller, gently firming the soil around the seeds, ensuring shallow seed placement and excellent seed-to-soil contact.
  • These notched rollers create little pockets on the soil surface to trap moisture. Seeds are placed in the top 1/4″ -1/2″ of soil for rapid germination and seedling development.

The Trillion is available in three seeding widths; 5 feet, 8 feet, or 10 feet.

  • The 5 foot model is available only for 3-point hook-up.
  • The 8 foot model is available for either 3-point hook-up or with transport wheels.
  • The 10 foot model is available only with transport wheels.
  • All models transfer the weight of the seeding unit to the cultipacker rollers for improved soil firming.
