Kasco ECO No-Till Drills
All Kasco drills and overseeders utilize a unique seed metering system. This heavy duty cast iron system will remain secure, to ensure proper seed volume per acre. The Kasco metering system will allow you to change seed varieties and sizes with a simple adjustment: no tools or plates are required. With this exact metering, there will be less seed waste and assurance of better germination.The Eco-Drill is the most rugged and durable machine in Kasco’s line. A row of straight coulters slice the ground, leaving a narrow seed trench with almost no disruption of the soil. A second row of concave opener blades with a precision seed placement device follows ensuring exact seed placement within the specified rows. A full row of heavy duty cultipacker wheels run behind the openers, for premium seed-to-soil contact.
Designed with versatility in mind, the Eco Drill No-Till Drill offers more alternatives than any other single seeder on the market today. Utilizing a unique seed metering system, the Eco Drill is capable of handling a wide variety of seed types including orchard grass, turnip, corn, sorghum and many more.
The Eco-Drills are available in either 3-point or pull-type machines. 6-foot, 8-foot, or 10-foot widths are available. Optional legume or warm season grass boxes are available for most machines.

Kasco’s Drills & Seeders Have Three Different Seedbox/Seed Metering Systems Available
|PRIMARY SEEDBOXThis is a large seedbox utilizing the Crustbuster metering system. It will accurately meter a wide variety of seeds, from tiny seeds like clover or Bermuda grass, mid-range seeds such as wheat, rye, or oats, to larger seeds such as corn, soybeans, and chufa. An agitator can be added to the Primary Seedbox.|
|LEGUME BOXThe Legume Box is a much smaller box, having the same Crustbuster metering system as the Primary Seedbox. It will handle the same seed sizes/varieties as the Primary Seedbox. The Legume Box is usually used as a secondary box with either the Primary Seedbox or the Native Grass Box. The Legume Box allows two different sized seeds to be planted at the same time with different seeding rates. Since the Legume Box is small, the drill frame does not need to be lengthened to accomodate it.|
|NATIVE GRASS BOX: (WARM SEASON GRASS BOX)This is a large box, with Kasco’s patented ‘Positive Feed” Metering System. Native (warm season) grasses normally consist of Little Blue Stem, native (warm season) grass seeds are fluffy or fuzzy, and will not feed through a standard metering system. Since the native (warm season) grasses will not feed through if the flow is restricted, a three speed gearbox is necessary to change seeding rates with this system. Using this Native (Warm Season) Grass Box is not recommended for seeding anything except native (warm season) grasses.|
