When tighter germination is your goal – such as for pastures or waterways – the Vari-Slice is your choice. The functional design offers a low-maintenance option in a heavy-duty overseeder. The solid-stand planting style is ideal for most grass-planting applications. The Vari-Slice works great in either worked or no-till ground.
The tightly spaced disc blades are mounted on an adjustable disc gang. This will allow you to increase the aggression of the cutting action. The blades are available in either a 3” or 4” spacing, depending on your use. The seedbox following these disc blades offers the same seed metering system Kasco is known for: a simple yet reliable metering system for a wide variety of seed types. The presswheel cultipacker not only drives the metering system, but also gives a final grade for your seedbed.
Our Unique Metering System allows the Vari-Slice to plant a wide variety of seeds:
Kasco’s Drills & Seeders Have Three Different Seedbox/Seed Metering Systems Available
This 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.
The 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.
