7000 Series Features & Options 

Saddle Tank Option

Smart Option for Low Rate Products

The Saddle Tank option provides a 5th tank compartment to the 7000 Series air seeder, making the handling and application of bagged products, such as canola or granular inoculant, as easy as possible.
  • New for 2018!  Dedicated load cells provide actual measured weight during operation. The ability to monitor actual weight during operation will deliver even more accurate metering for expensive low rate products such as canola seed.
  • The optional Saddle Tank is mounted on the left side of the 7000 Series air seeders and is designed for the application of low rate bagged products such as canola or granular inoculant.
  • The optional Saddle Tank, when combined with the 4 main tanks, provides an even greater range of tank combination options so that you can maximize the total available volume, regardless of product applications.
  • The low tank height allows bagged product to be transferred directly from a pickup truck to minimize handling.  This feature also removes any possible danger from lugging bags up the stairs to the tank top.
  • Mini-Bulk Storage Platform - to minimize the time and effort it takes to handle bagged product, Bourgault has developed a Mini-Bulk Storage Platform.  This platform allows you to store a pallet of canola or other bagged product and transfer it to the Saddle Tank as necessary.
    (Note: The Mini-Bulk Storage Platform is not available for the 7550 or L7550 Saddle Tank.)
  • The handy BulkBOOM Option is available with the Saddle Tank option, providing convenient loading of mini-bulk bag into the air seeder.
  • If the Saddle Tank option is not purchased, an optional Product Lift System is available for lifting bags safely and easily to the tank top.
  • The Saddle Tank option is 40 bu (1,450 l) on the 71300, 7950, 7700 and L7800.  A smaller 20 bu (725 l) option is available for the 7550 and L7550 air seeders.
