Ranew’s Firminator Accu-Seed System
Simple solutions for the land manager
When it comes to whitetails, the most effective habitat management plans are those that provide proper year-round nutrition through planting a variety of crops for different seasons. The variety of plant species that whitetail prefer can have vastly different seed sizes and planting prescriptions. That presents a problem if you’re not properly equipped, and it can lead to costly waste.
The Accu-Seed System, just one of the many great features of The Firminator all-in-one food plot implement, addresses that by handling seeds of all sizes, from the tiniest clovers up to corn, soybeans, peas, and sunflowers, and everything in between. You can even sow different sized seed simultaneously. This versatility makes the Firminator an ideal choice for the modern land manager, whether you’re installing food plots, filter strips, pastures, lawns or other conservation plantings.
Begin by filling the seed hopper and adjusting the metering openings by moving the linkage handle on the back of the seedbox. An indicator on the handle shows seed size selections in one-sixteenth inch graduations. Set the size for the largest seed in the hopper and the metering system will automatically dispense seed at the generally accepted rate. When you are ready to dispense the seed, open the small access door on the side of the frame, pull and turn the small pin one-quarter turn and release. This engages the metering shaft allowing the seed to fall as the Firminator rolls.
As you move forward, seeds are dropped into a specially designed baffle that thoroughly distributes the seed right in front of the culti-packer. This enhances that all-important seed-to-soil contact for better germination rates as well as protecting the seed from wind deflection.
And because the system is ground-driven, the seed is metered out relative to the speed you are traveling. When the Firminator stops rolling, the seed stops falling. All those features mean no more wasted, expensive seed.
