Open or close the inter-connect ports between the three or four tank compartments for quick and simple tank reconfiguration.

Convenience & Flexibility

  • Fill the same product in up to three adjacent tanks and still use one PDM Pro™ Metering Auger to meter product into either the seed or fertilizer distribution systems.
  • Minimize the number of fills with the most efficient use of tank volume regardless of the product combination and rate.
