U Series Utility Seeding Drills

Truax Utility Series Drills are a three-point hitch Drill with rear mounted drive wheel. Seed placement, whether in bare ground or interseeded into cover crops or sod, is one of the most challenging concerns when establishing grasses. Truax double disc openers and no-till attachments meet this challenge.

U-Series Drills are designed so that you can purchase just the Drill you need, then add optional features to meet your changing needs

  • Available as a 4.0 foot (Utility-86), 5.3 foot (Utility-88) or 8.0 foot (Utility 812).
  • U-Series Drills feature the traditional Truax seed box design for efficient handling of all types and textures of seed and precision metering of seed flow.  
  • Available as a grass Drill with two seed boxes, a large fluffy seed box and a small seed box with the option for adding a cool season/grain box to make it a three box Drill.
  • Available as a grain Drill with two seed boxes, a grain box and a small box. A fluffy seed box cannot be added to the grain Drill.
