FLXII-812 Truax No-Till Drill


The Putnam County Soil Conservation District would like to announce our new addition to our rental equipment.  Thanks to the Tennessee Department of Agriculture (TDA) we were able to get a new FLXII-812 Truax No-Till Drill.  The new drill is an end-drive, about 11' wide, and plants an 8' wide row.  It has a traditional large seed box, a small seed box, and a native warm season box for fluffy seed.  If you would like to rent the drill call the office at 931-528-6472 extension 3 for more details and availability or stop in the office at 900 South Walnut Ave. Room 1, Cookeville, TN.
