Precision Disk 500 Air Drill Highlights​

  • Tow-between or tow-behind configurations
  • Split front and rear ranks to allow single rank seeding
  • Easily folds for transportability
  • In-Cab down pressure control


Transport & Flotation

  • The vertical fold design allows for lowest transport height in the industry as well as narrow transport widths
  • The 25 ft & 30 ft Precision Disk Drills also utilize a wing lock for safe transport
  • To fold or unfold the tool, a single remote lever in the tractor is used
  • While transporting or pulling in/out of a field, the ground clearance of the openers is 8.5 in
  • The wide profile of the transport wheels provide the stability to move the disk drill confidently, even at higher roading speeds
  • Maximum transport speed should not exceed 20 mph


Standard Flotation

  • Stubble resistant tires at all locations
  • 12 total wheels
  • Front of mainframe- 12/5L x 15 dual on castoring rigid axles
  • Front and rear of each wing --12.5L x 15 single wheel (front on caster)
  • Rear of mainframe--18L x 16.1 dual wheels on rigid axles


High Flotation

  • Stubble resistant tires at all locations
  • 16 total wheels
  • Front of mainframe--12.5L x 15 dual on castoring walking tandem axles
  • Front and rear of each wing--12.5L x 15 duals on walking beam axles (front on castor)
  • Rear of mainframe 18L x 16.1 dual wheels on walking beam axles

Tow-Behind or Tow-Between, It's Up to You

Front Hitch

  • The front pull hitch is a floating style hitch
  • Allows the disk drill to float up and down, independently from the tractor and hitch
  • Improves ground following and seed depth control because the hitch will not raise or lower the front of the tool when the tractor rides over a hill or an obstacle


Rear Hitch

  • A rear hitch is available to hook up any tow-behind air cart
  • The rear hitch is designed to ensure a tight implement turning radius and follow the tracks created by the tractor during transport
  • Provides enough room to allow the drill frame to be folded into the transport position without disconnecting the air system
  • A rear hitch package is available to provide the needed hydraulic and eletronic power to the Tow-Behind air cart
  • Lights and ISOBUS connection


Hitch Clevis

  • A strong cast Cat IV clevis
  • For secure hitching, this type of hitch requires a 2" hitch pin​​


Rear Hitch Caddy

  • When utilizing a Tow-Between air cart a convenient rear hitch can also be added to the drill to tow other caddies
