Re: filling drills

6-five gallon buckets. Fill'em up on the ground. Lift them up on the platform of the drill. Jump up on the drill dump the buckets in and start all over. Slow but efficent enough for the acres we use a no-till drill on. We use the sam e method to fill the Kinze 12/23.

Re: filling drills

We use an ADS seed buggy, it holds to pro boxes that each hold 50 bushels. We use it to fill our notill drill and Kinze planter. Works good, usually have to refill it during the day but that doesnt take long either.

Re: filling drills

We have a four unit Seed Shuttle that works pretty good but at times it would be nice if it held six boxes instead of just four.
