Seed Hawk 30 Air Drill in field

30 Air Drill

In some farming operations, growers look for compact size without compromising crop performance.  The Seed Hawk 30 air drill features the same precision opener function in a smaller design.  With an on-board tank featuring the Fenix II metering system, the 30 air drill is able to navigate narrow roadways with ease.

Precision seed placement with just the right fit

The Seed Hawk 30 Air Drill is a perfect fit for smaller farms and mixed farming operations where larger seed drills are impractical.

Regardless of the diversity of your crops, the 30 Air Drill with its precision Seed Hawk openers provides the same legendary seed and fertilizer placement as large-scale Seed Hawk seeding systems. It is a compact combination of air cart and toolbar with low horse power requirements.

Designed for multiple crops

The Seed Hawk 30 Air Drill is offered in two sizes. With a frame width of either 19’8” (6 m) or 26’3” (8 m), both machine sizes have a mounted tank with a total volume of 110 bu (3876 liters). 

The 19'8" frame is designed to enable a setup of 24 rows at 10” (250 mm) row spacing, or 20 rows at 12” (300 mm) row spacing. 

The bigger, 26'3" frame is designed for 32 rows at 10” (250 mm) row spacing, or 26 rows at 12” (300 mm) row spacing.

Precision seed and fertilizer placement

The industry-leading Seed Hawk opener assemblies operate independently for superior shallow seeding, depth accuracy and optimal fertilizer placement. 

The result is quick, uniform germination with even packing pressure and consistent performance in all soil conditions.

Narrow transport

The Seed Hawk 30 Air Drill folds up in a convenient, compact package.

Regardless of the configuration, the machine has a transport width of 9’10” (3m). The transport height ranges from 11’-13’4” (3.35 to 4.06 m), depending on the frame width.
