No-Till Drill and Hauling Trailer Now Available to Rent in Missoula and Neighboring Counties

IMG_2726

Missoula Conservation District no-till drill is a 2016 Truax Flex II Grass Drill – 88 – 3337, approximately 8-feet wide.

The no-till drill can seed approximately 6 to 8 acres per day. The minimum tractor size needed is 30 horsepower; hydraulic ports are needed.

Fertilizer cannot run through this no-till drill, as it would corrode the discs, depth bands, and other inner parts of the drill. If you are planning to use fertilizer, please apply your own prior to renting the no-till drill.

Want to learn more about this no-till drill? Review the full manual on the Truax Company website or review just the operational section of the manual here.

Cost:

Missoula Conservation District rents the no-till drill to the public for the cost of $150/day for same day pick-up/drop-off. Each additional day costs $150.

Please note that a $500 security deposit, via check or credit card, must be made at the time of pickup in case of loss or damages.  The deposit will be returned to the renter or credited toward the rental fee if loss or damages did not occur.
