Bourgault 7000 series tanks

Does the scale option read each tank individually or just one weight for whole unit

Yep. Didn’t realize how much I use it until I blew a load cell this spring.

Moniter tells you what you have left in each bin. You put your weight in as you fill each bin and then it counts down as your seeding

It’s not that great. Only as accurate as your calibration and you have to religiously keep track of each tank when filling.

Yes and spend time entering the numbers in the monitor before you start seeding again. Kind of a time waster IMO. Only time I really used it was when I didn't want to over-fill when finishing a field.

They have an app now called xtend just have to reset every time you move tanks. Also used for calibrating works real good no more running back and forth to the tractor. I really only use the scale for finishing up fields.
