Seed Hawk air cart in field

Air Cart 660-980

Smart, flexible, efficient

Precision seeding on large farms just got a big boost. Combining capacity, flexibility, and accuracy, Seed Hawk Air Carts will improve every farm’s productivity. Innovative technology throughout the Fenix III metering, iCon Wireless Control system, load cells and intuitive iPad monitor give the operator real-time data that can be used in the field and recorded for future reference. High capacity fans, large bins and high flotation tires allow you to apply the products you require, even in the toughest conditions.

Part of the Seed Hawk concept

With a combination of precision, flexibility and capacity, the Seed Hawk air cart system delivers the right amount of seeds at the right time.  The metering system is compatible in all types of seed sizes and, combined with the cart size of your choice, allows the Seed Hawk system to adapt to a wide variety of cropping preferences.

When size matters

With its  large capacity, Seed Hawk Air Carts are designed to give you more time seeding and less time filling. Offered in three sizes, the 660, 800 and 980 Air Cart have a total bin capacity of between 660 to 980 bushels (23258 – 34534 liters).

With bigger tires comes better flotation in wet conditions. A larger footprint decreases compaction by over 50% - on average from 27psi (1.86 bar) to 12 psi (0.83 bar).

Individual bin load cells

Individual bin load cells

Stopping to guess how much product you have left in the tank is a thing of the past. The modular tank design of Seed Hawk Air Carts features individual compartment load cells. 

The load cells weigh each bin separately and provide real-time verification of remaining product. The iCon Wireless Control software uses the innovative Acres to Empty feature to calculate how many acres it will cover. This ensures more efficient filling times and allows you to pinpoint your required fill volume.

Sectional Control Technology™

Sectional control works in conjunction with an independent, toolbar-mounted GPS system to eliminate overlap, save on input costs, and reduce ground disturbance of already seeded areas.

The system controls the meters on your Seed Hawk air cart and the openers on your Seed Hawk toolbar to instantly stop roller rotation and product flow when encountering previously seeded ground. It also lifts the openers so you do not disturb the precision seed and fertilizer placement already completed.

Variable Rate Seeding

The amount of fertilizer and seed required to achieve desired yield will vary across the field and, most times, over the width of the toolbar. Seed Hawk’s iCon system is compatible with industry leading prescription mapping to dial in the exact amount of product desired, reducing the amount of inputs used.Each 10 feet of toolbar has its own seed and fertilizer meter to ensure greater accuracy in variable terrain.
