Great Plains 3S-5000
All Great Plains Hydraulic Down-Pressure Drills fold to a narrow 15' for safe, convenient transporting.
CONSTANT HYDRAULIC DOWN PRESSURE
This feature optimizes seed placement at all times. Active hydraulics keep openers in uniform contact with soil in uneven conditions and varying soil types. Down pressure is applied independently at both ends of each subframe, maximizing opener ground-hugging capabilities.
00 & 00HD SERIES OPENERS
00 Series openers utilize 13.5", 4mm disc blades with a ¼" leading edge. The 00HD Series opener is “beefed up” with a stronger opener body and heavier down-pressure springs than the standard 00 Series. Its 15", 4mm blades are offset ½" for better penetration in harsher field conditions.
T-HANDLE DEPTH CONTROL
T-handle offers 18 different positions for accurate depth control.
PRESS WHEEL OPTIONS
Single press wheels include 3"x13" double* or center rib, 2"x13" smooth, or 3"x14" peak. Double press wheels include 1"x12" or 1.25"x13" wedge-style press wheels (7½" or 10" spacings only).
LOWER OPENER PIVOT POINT
Openers pivot around gauge wheel axles, improving opener contact with the ground on terraces and undulations.
ALL SEED OR SEED & DRY FERTILIZER
Choose all seed or seed/fertilizer models. Fertilizer units let the operator partition off the large 3.2 bu./ft. seed box to get the best ratio of seed to fertilizer. Partitions include: 60% seed to 40% fertilizer; 68% seed to 32% fertilizer; or 55% seed to 45% fertilizer.
