147C Seed Drill

The 147C is BACK! The 14’ rigid drill is in demand, with all the features that have made the 107C so popular.

Now planting in 14’ increments and weighing over 5,600 lbs., this is a superb drill for planting in heavy residue and hard to-penetrate soil.

The 147C Grain Drill is designed to seed no-till, minimum till, or conventional tilled fields. The two-compartment hopper offers the flexibility of seeding with dry fertilizer, seeding alone, or planting two different seeds.

If you need to plant in heavy trash conditions and have substantial acres to seed, the 147C is the drill for you!

Standard Features

  • Lead Coulter System: Lead coulter blade is offset 1 ½” in front of dual disc, allowing for cutting of trash and penetrating the soil.
  • 7” Row Spacing: All Haybuster drills plant with 7” spacing and each linkage is offset 9 ½” for planting in heavy residue.
  • Infinite Seed Rate Adjustment: Easy to set, each box has infinite seed adjustment for accurate seeding rates, no matter what seed you’re planting.
  • Down Pressure System: Each linkage has simple downpressure adjustments from 135 lbs. for conventional seeding up to 300 lbs. for no-till application.
