4955 Seed Runner

08/14/2014 @ 4:15pm

Unverferth Manufacturing Company’s 4955 Seed Runner self-filling seed tender is designed to keep up with larger, faster planters. The new 4955 features a 500-seed-unit capacity and a two-stage conveyer with a low-profile intake and tubular-loading conveyor for 24-feet of reach.

With 90-inches of vertical height adjustment, the 4955 can be easily positioned. Exclusive belts are designed to gently handle different seed types. The crescent-shaped cleats in the intake conveyor gently lift the seed from the tank to the 10-inch diameter tube with a 15-inch belt that has cupped rows of offset cleats. This combination allows you to unload at up to 45 bushels per minute.

The 4955 has a dual-compartment design with conveniently placed windows and LED fill lights so you can quickly determine the seed level. An easy-to-operate rollover tarp with an 18-ounce canvas keeps seed dry.

You can operate the seed tender on your own with a standard 7-function remote that controls the engine and conveyor functions, including the ability to pivot the conveyor into the self-loading position. The LCD scale readout provides load details when you are at a distance from the optional scale and display.

The gooseneck hitch and heavy-duty undercarriage has tandem axles with spring-ride suspension and dual wheels to provide reliable transport. To ensure safe travel, the 4955 has four-wheel electric brakes, transport chains, LED lighting, and clearance lights.

All hydraulic operation is powered by an electric-start Honda 690 cc engine. The conveyor is powered by a hydraulic 6-cubic-inch, top-mounted motor.

A T&G applicator is available to accurately meter seed lubrication products. Other options include an electric-operated tarp, electric-over-hydraulic-operated jack, spare wheel and tire, and your choice of scale packages.
