The District's Heavy Equipment Program has been a major part of the District since its inception in 1944.
No Till Drill
The District has a Great Plains model 1005 no-till drill for rent. The drill has a planting width of 10’ with 7’’ row spacing. The drill is equipped with three seed boxes to plant a wide variety of seeds. The first seed box has adjustable seed cups to plant most cool season grasses, small grains, peas, and beans. The second box is equipped with an agitator for warm season grasses and wildflowers. The third box is the small seed box specially designed for seeds such as clover, timothy, alfalfa, etc. The drill does a great job on no-till and conventional till fields and works well for over seeding pastures, and hayfields. Some of the non-traditional uses for the drill are conservation easements and food plots. The drill can be delivered or picked up from our equipment yard on Shortly Road and is easily towed behind a pickup truck. A minimum of a 50 hp tractor is needed to pull the drill. Please contact the District for pricing and availability.
