Features

Seedbox capacities

Seed boxes have a large capacity for longer intervals between stops for refilling.

Plain grain or combination grain/fertiliser seed boxes are available to match the producer’s needs.

The versatile grain/fertiliser box has a three-position divider that can be set for 100 percent grain, 60 percent grain, or 40 percent grain.

A grass seeder attachment is available (see attachments in the Ag Sales Manual). The grass seeder attaches to the front of the seedbox and is commonly used for grasses and alfalfa.

Front-folding frame allows for narrow transport

A fully hydraulic front fold/unfold system makes folding on the 455 Drills, for transport a true one-person operation.

  • Requires less than 5 minutes to fold or unfold
  • Transport width is narrow as 4.6 m (15 ft, 2 in.)

High opener transport clearance allows moving over ditches, railroad crossings, and other trouble spots without worry.
