Bourgault Customer Clinic - 2020
7000 & 6000 Series Air Seeders ● 3320 PHDs  ● 3720 ICDs
Bourgault Customer Service Centre
Due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Bourgault has canceled all Spring 2020 Customer Clinics.  In response to the lost opportunity to conduct in-person training with you at your dealership, the Bourgault Service Team has created an online tutorial that covers most of the planned material.
The material below is applicable for new equipment for the 2020 model year, but would also be a good refresher for those operating near-current equipment.
Seeding System Start Up

To help you get off to the best start possible, Bourgault has produced the Seeding System StartUp Video - an informative presentation that covers the critical aspects of your new seeding system.  Though it is aimed for 2021 model year units, a substantial portion of the video still pertains to the 2020 model year units and earlier.
