Overview

Description

High Capacity Seed & Feed Combination Hoppers



Sunflower offers the best of both worlds in the new Model 9531 grain drill - capacity and versatility. Equipped with a new divided hopper, the 9531 provides the operator with the ability to apply fertilizer during planting or convert the hopper to an all-seed mode for up to 150 bushels of capacity (40-foot model), which translates into more time in the field and less time filling.



Choose from two different models in 30-foot and 40-foot drilling widths and a choice of 7.5- or 10-inch row spacings. All four configurations feature the Sunflower Heads-Up opener assembly, which ensures superior seed placement, as well as our staggered three-section, forward-fold design that promises a new level of flexibility in all field conditions.

Features
  • Extra Heavy Frames: Heavy duty 3/8" thick 7" x 7" main frames are coupled to a 3/8" thick 3" x 5" opener frame to create a sound foundation for all Sunflower grain drills. 9300, 9400, 9500, 9600 series drills
  • All Purpose "Heads Up" Opener: All-purpose openers feature wide set 1/2” parallel links for better depth control and “dead on accuracy” in seed placement. Two 400lb. retention springs can generate 420+lbs at the pinch point of the opener blade! Down pressures can be easily adjusted from no-till to conventional seeding without the need of tools. 15” diameter x 3.5mm “Heads Up Opener Blades” eliminate pairing of rows, premature leading blade wear and side loading of bearings. 9300, 9400, and 9500 series drills
  • Conventional Opener: The single arm mount conventional openers are mounted at an 8-inch stagger to promote residue flow through the seeding system. The single point mount bearing is protect by UHMW bearings to prevent wear and reduce service time. The pneumatic down pressure system maintains an even down pressure on all row units and eliminates the down pressure spikes that occur with spring activated down pressure systems. 9600 series drills
  • Seed Hoppers: With the largest seed hoppers in the industry ranging in seed capacity from 2.4 to 3.75 bushels per foot, the all welded boxes are constructed of heavy 16 gauge steel with 3/16 inch thick end plates. The bolt in hopper bottoms allow multiple row spacing using the same hopper. 9300 series (2.4 bu.), 9421 & 9600 (3.0 bu.) series, 9400 & 9500 series (3.75 bu.),
  • Seed Meters & Adjustments: The infinitely variable meters are very gentle on seeds and provide a continuous flow of material unlike fluted meters that drop seed in groups. This has a better singulation affect than dumping small groups of seed as found in fluted meter operations. Rates are easily changed with a lever adjustment system on each hopper system. Seed Meter: All models; Adjustment Lever: 9435, 9531 and 9600 series
  • Walk Boards: 9000 series drills sport an automatically locking walk board. Lift the walk board to the raised position and the lock will engage, placing the pin in the lock position will ensure it will stays locked. The walk board is deep for operator safety and the ladder simply folds over the walk board rather than under it. Attached to the ladder mount is a folding handle to assist the operator in mounting the walk board. When not in use it easily folds down for storage. Walk Boards: All models; Assist Handle: 9435, 9531 and 9600 series
