Davidson Soil and Water Conservation District has a no-till grass drill for rent to farmers in Davidson County to re-establish pasture and hay land. The drill is a Truax Flex II 88 and is available to rent for $12 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 pounds 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.
