Seed Runner 55-Series Bulk Tender Unverferth Seed Tenders

When Unverferth introduced the first self-filling Seed Runner, it revolutionized the bulk seed handling industry with its patented design which pivoted the conveyor 180° for easy self-filling from ground level.

Today, we are excited to announce a new series of this patented product that is sure to bring your operation to a new level of efficiency.  A new, low profile tank design with large top opening, increased capacity and undercarriage option with the new model 3955XL, longer conveyor on the new model 2755XL, patented belt design with Smooth-Start conveyor engagement and the list goes on.

Introducing the all-new 55-Series Seed Runner – Innovation…Refined.

    Conveyor

    Innovation...Refined

    • The new, patented 5-ply rubber conveyor belt design features offset rows of cupped cleats to minimize seed damage while providing a greater carrying capacity:
      • Filling a larger, central fill planter or drill?  Get the job done faster with the 8” conveyor featuring unloading speeds up to 35 bushels per minute
      • Filling individual planter or drill boxes?  Do it with precise control with the 6” conveyor featuring unloading speeds up to 16 bushels per minute
    • Smooth-Start conveyor engagement gently brings the conveyor belt up to maximum speed to increase belt life
    • All models are standard with two downspouts:  a four-foot flex spout ideal for filling central fill planters or drills and a two-stage downspout that reaches up to 34’ on XL models and 30’ on models 2755 and 3755
    • Tool-free removable belt access cover allows you to easily determine belt tension
