Since the 1970s, Kasco has led the way with innovative equipment designed to less the work load of our farmer partners. Our original auger product was used to transfer dry fertilizer across the boxes of corn planters. These planter augers fill the fertilizer boxes quickly, easily, and safely. Kasco’s augers are powered by a hydraulic motor with an optional flow valve. All hoppers have safety shields over the auger flighting.
Fertilizer Augers for Corn Planters
The Kasco Planter Auger System fills fertilizer boxes quickly, easily, and safely. Utilizing a two auger system — horizontal and vertical augers — Kasco’s system is designed with safety in mind. All hoppers have safety shields over the auger flighting and over each set of holes in the tubes. The augers are powered by hydraulic motors which can be plumbed in series. The horizontal auger fits securely over the planter boxes, ensuring even distribution of fertilizer. The vertical auger is mounted independently. Its hopper is carried high enough to clear the ground when the planter is in operation, yet the top of the hopper will set under the discharge chute of the gravity wagon. All tubes are plastic for durability and rust‐resistance; flighting is available in either steel or rubber.
“Rock‐n‐Roll” Single Auger for No‐Till Drills
Kasco’s “Rock‐n‐Roll” auger system offers an economical and easy way to fill the seed hopper on today’s generation of no‐till and minimum‐till grain drills. Allowing farmers to save money by purchasing seed in bulk, and to save time and effort in loading the large hoppers, the “Rock‐n‐Roll” is the perfect companion for these drills. This system incorporates a single vertical auger mounted on the drill on a single pivot point. A four‐section telescoping tube extends from the top of the auger, reaching to fill either a 15’ or 20’ drill. The auger’s hopper sets on the ground beneath the gravity wagon. The “Rock‐n‐Roll” stays mounted on the drill at all times, whether in filling or transport position, allowing the farmer to change varieties of seed back and forth with the use of any number of wagons.
Gravity Wagon Augers
Kasco’s innovative hopper design allows material to drop directly into the auger, for less seed damage and more positive flow. Different sized hoppers are available to handle up to a 45” opening on your wagon. A heavy duty winch with a built‐in brake is included, as is a heavy duty transport bracket to lock the auger in place. Plastic outer tubing provides easy maneuverability, and a choice of flighting is available to match the product being moved.
Seed Fill Augers for Central Fill Planters and Drills
Kasco’s unique design of auger system utilizes a single vertical auger mounted on the back of the planter or drill. Our rugged yet simple design will tolerate transport over even the roughest terrain. The brackets do not interfere with the railing; no modification to your planter or drill is necessary. A flexible discharge hose at the top of the auger allows quick charging of the seed hoppers. Cupped plastic flighting ensures minimal seed damage.
