Precise Seed Placement in Various Conditions


  • Grain Seed DrillThe Jumbo Grain box has a capacity of two bushels per foot of box length and has the same cool season/grain agitator and fluted feed cups as the FLEXII Series Grass Drill.
  • The small seed box features row dividers and fluted feed cups.
  • Seed delivery and placement in the soil is completed through the double disc furrow openers with depth bands and the independent press wheel.
  • Planting can be done under various conditions from a well-prepared tilled seedbed to the toughest no-till conditions when equipped with no-till coulter units.
  • Lock out hub is standard equipment on all FLXII Grain Drills.

Truax FLEXII Series Grain Drills With Dual Rear Transport Wheels

Grain Seed EquipmentThe Truax Rear Transport Wheels are the answer for moving wider drills on narrow roadways, especially when meeting oncoming traffic. The dual wheels remain on the road surface while the end of the drill hangs over the shoulder and ditch.

Narrow, crowned road centers are no linger a challenge with the 12 - 14 inches of ground clearance.

This feature can also be a real advantage when crossing swales, ditch bottoms, and traveling field roads.

After obtaining necessary travel permits and when other conditions apply, the drill equipped with Dual Rear Transport Wheels are easy to load on trailers with the transport wheels rolling up trailer ramps.

 

Get productive seed-to-soil
placement – and save valuable time.


The FLEXII Series Drill handles field and seed bed variability – changing from the no-till drill configuration to drilling a prepared conventional seed bed – on the go. With the simple movement of a hydraulic lever, you save time and achieve productive seed-to-soil placement.

Digital Acre Meter

When the acre meter is easily accessed, it gets used on a regular basis. Find the OTG's accurate meter mounted on the end of the drill for easy reading – no more climbing onto the drill, looking for it next to the clutch.

Independent Slide Lever

Slide lever sets openings for fluted feed cups of small seed box and cool season/grain box.

Staggered Double-Disc Openers

Staggered double-disc openers and staggered no-tills provide trash
clearance and eliminate plugging.

  • Seed from all boxes is delivered between the double disc openers. The rolling disc opener carries the seed into the soil for proper placement and optimal seed-to-soil contact.
  • Truax EZ-Off Depth Bands on every disc control planting depth. Four sizes are available to accommodate planting depths of different crops.

 

Soil Scrapers

Scrapers on the disc openers and the depth bands prevent moist soil from building up, compromising planting depth and seed placement.

Scrapers are located:

  • On the outside surface of the discs.
  • Inside between the double discs.
  • On the face of the depth band.

 

Press Wheel

Indepndent movement of Truax press wheels firms soil around the seed without affecting operating depth of the planting units.

Press wheel frame provides clearance to pass residue through without bunching or plugging.

Trouble Free Seed Flow

The Truax straight line drop design keeps the seeds moving from the seed boxes to the Drill openers.

  • Consistent delivery of seed to the openers.
  • Eliminates plugged seed passages.
Flex Grass Drill Seed Boxes

Truax Drills offer maximum control of seeding rate.

  • Independent adjustment for fine tuning each seed box output.
  • Simple derailleur speed changer sets output of fluffy seed.
  • Slide lever sets openings for fluted feed cups of small seed box and cool season/grain box.
  • Optional output reduction kit for low seeding rates from all boxes.

FlexII Grain Drill Specifications


TRUAX - the global leader in the manufacture of drills and planters to sow native grasses, legumes and grains has set the standard for drill features to meter and place these seeds in order to achieve optimal establishment. When reviewing the features of different brands of drills to meet your specific needs be sure to include the following which are common to all Truax drills and planters: Including the On The Go (OTG Series), Flex II Series, Trillions, and Pull Broadcasters.

COMMON TO ALL TRUAX DRILLS

  • An optional Output Reduction Kit is available to reduce seeding rates for specialized applications including low rate CRP mixes.
  • Tapered roller bearings with integral rubber seal on rear bearings used on all no·till coulters.
  • Separately metered seed boxes for grains, small seed and legumes, and a third box for fluffy native species.
  • Depth of planting controlled by metal depth bands on all planting discs.
  • Digital acre meter strategically placed on end of drill for easy access.
  • Ground clearance of disc blades when in transit will be 10" or more, press wheel clearance to be 14" or more.
  • Optional 3" x 16" smooth crown leading press wheels that are interchangeable with the leading no-till.
  • Trouble free delivery of all seeds from the seed boxes to the drill openers. This is accomplished through large seed boots and by maintaining a vertical straight-line flow in the fluffy seed boot, a nearly vertical drop from the cool season/small grain box, and a smooth tube from the small seed box.
  • Seed from all seed boxes is delivered between the double disc openers. The rolling disc opener carries the seed into the soil for proper seed placement. Seed is not broadcast behind the disc opener.
  • EZ-OFF depth bands on every double disc control planting depth. Shallow planting is required for most grass and legume species. A shallow, uniform planting depth results in a uniform seedling emergence. Depth bands are available in four sizes depending on the desired planting depth and soil texture.
  • Scrapers on the disc openers and the depth bands keep moist soil from building up and affecting planting depth and seed placement.
  • Press wheels operate independent from the planter assembly. The press wheels on Truax Drill track directly behind the disc openers to firm and press the soil around the newly planted seed without controlling the depth the planting unit is operating.
  • Interseeding or no-till drilling in crop residue or sod is easily accomplished using the concave, notched, fixed mount Trash Plows, or the optional 24 or 13 wave coulter on a caster style mount.
  • End wheel drive powers the seed metering mechanism to assure a constant flow of seed to the disc openers under all planting conditions.
  • A tongue style hitch easily converts to three-point style by adding Category 2 or 3 hitch pins to pre-drilled holes in the frame. A folding tongue is an option for ease of transport and storage.

TRUAX - we have continuous improvement to the Truax line of drills to better meet the challenges of the owners and operators of the FlexII Series of drills, Trillions, and Pull Broadcasters. Insist on the following "features" when selecting a drill for your next project.
