Company has been in business in Minneapolis, Minnesota building
grass-seeding equipment since 1974. As a landscaper during
the early 1970's, Jim Truax experienced first hand the frustration
of trying to plant native prairie grasses with the available
equipment. These frustrations led to the design and development
of the Truax Drill. Truax equipment is designed from the
top down to effectively meter and plant grass seeds at the
required shallow depth.
the initial emphasis was planting native species, the addition
of the small seed box and the optional cool season/grain
box gives Truax seeding equipment the capability to efficiently
meter and plant most types and textures of grass, legume,
wild flower, and cover crop seed. In addition, a Truax Drill
will plant small grains and soybeans.
our product line includes: the FLEXII Series Grass Drills,
FLEXII Series Grain Drills, and FLEXII Series Utility Drills
for double disc Drilled seeding; the Trillion, a Pull-Type
Broadcaster, and the Seed Slinger for broadcast seeding.
The latest addition to our product line is the rugged Rough
Rider for Drilled seeding on non-agricultural lands.
Company utilizes a direct market approach between the manufacturer
and the customer for both initial sales and service. This
approach has been successful in helping keep customer costs
down as well as keeping open a direct line of communication
between the manufacturer and the end user. Customers are
located in 49 of the 50 US States as well as internationally
in Canada, Mexico, the Falkland Islands, Germany, Saudia
Arabia, Tunisia, and South Africa. Over the years Truax
Company has relied on input from our customers, employees,
and a group of current and former SCS/NRCS employees to
make suggestions to improve our product line.

equipment to meet your needs. "Leading
