 Truax Flex II 88 No Till Drill

Davidson Soil and Water Conservation District has a no-till grass drill for rent to farmers in Davidson County to re-establish pasture and hayland.  The drill is a Truax Flex II 88 and is available to rent for $12.00 per acre. Operating the drill requires at least a 40 horsepower tractor with hydraulic capability.  Seeding width is 5.3 feet which makes it ideal for small beef cattle farms.  The overall transport width is 8 feet.  The drill weighs 3,000 lbs and can be towed on the highway by a pickup truck. The drill is capable of planting small seeds (clover, legumes), fluffy seeds (native warm season grasses), cool season grasses, small grain, millet and soybeans.   Call us at 336-242-2075 or come by our office to schedule a rental time to use the drill.
