We Recommend

We recommend the following products to expand your scale’s capability and maximize the benefits it can offer (sold separately).

Reasons to Install a Scale

Verify proper seeding rate

Overseeding by just a pound or two per acre adds up to big losses. Plant a few acres and use a scale to tell you how much seed you’ve distributed. Compare it to your seed prescription to verify accuracy and make adjustments.

Keep the tractor moving

With a scale, there’s no need to stop and get out to check how much seed is left on the planter or drill.

Make quicker adjustments

Seed size and variety can greatly affect the seeding rate, which means that just as soon as you complete one variety or field and move on to the next, you’re looking at more adjustments. Using a scale system allows you to verify the proper rate within just the first few acres, saving both time and seed.

Fill all seed hoppers and boxes evenly

Know your seed is evenly distributed across the planter or drill from the start.

Switch varieties faster

Improved accuracy from the scale allows the planter or drill to be almost perfectly empty when you’re done with one variety. Just change hybrids and start planting again.

Fill with accuracy

Avoid running out of seed before you’re finished with a variety.
