Bourgault Industries Ltd . is proud to add the Leading 6450 Air Seeder to the current line of 6000 Series Air Seeders available.The flexibility and features of the Bourgault L6450 further establishes the 6000 Series as the premier line of air seeder tanks in the marketplace.

As well, the L6450 holds the distinction of being the largest production leading air seeder tank in the world.

TANK & FRAME - The L6450 has four internal tanks for a total of 450 bushels. Tank 2 can be diverted into Tank 1 or 3, and Tank 3 can be diverted into Tank 4 or 2 through the use of patented inter-connect ports.

TIRES - The rear tires available are 30.5L32 in R1, 900/60 in R1W on 130" spacing, and dual 20.8R38 R2 on row crop spacing.

HITCH & SPINDLES - The hitch weight is approximately 8,500 lbs. when fully loaded. The rear spindles are bolted in.

AUGER - There are two options for the load/unload auger. The first is a 10" auger with a standard hopper. It has a hydraulic cylinder to assist in swinging the main arm and will also hold the arm in position while the auger is in use. The second is a 10" auger with folding low profile transfer hopper for getting under grain trailers. It has hydraulic controls for the transfer hopper fold, auger swing, and auger raise/tilt.

DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM - Single Shoot, Double Shoot, Single Shoot with Broadcast, and Multi-Shoot are available with this air seeder. The Straight-Thru distribution system allows the metering augers to supply each of the distribution pipes with a short flexible hose. This allows the operator to easily change product delivery from a specific metering auger to the distribution pipe of choice.

METERING SYSTEM - The metering transmissions are ground-driven through a series of interconnecting drive shafts to angle gearbox drives, which power the variable rate transmissions. The UHMW metering augers are protected from high torque damage by a torque-limiting device located on the auger shafts. Each of the metering augers are outfitted with triple sprockets, allowing a change between high, intermediate, and low range without the need for tools.

MONITORS - Monitor options include:

Model 491 Deluxe Monitor - available for three or four tank configurations with Manual Rate Control, Cab Rate Control, or Zone Rate Control. Fan control (1 or 2 fan) is available with ZRC only.

ZYNX Monitor/Controller System by Kee Technologies - features a full color touch screen and variable rate control program customized for the Bourgault Superior Seeding System. This option is available in three or four tank configurations and comes standard with auxiliary clutches. With optional components, NH3 or liquid fertilizer applications can also be controlled in combination with seeder functions to a maximum of four different products.
