Mather, Manitoba

Looking at updating to a bourgault 5710, 6450 tank, with mid row banders. 10 inch spacing. Have a tow between 3000 gal liquid caddy that we haul as well. What hp do I need to pull it? Pretty flat land.

We have a 60 ft without band,and no caddy with a fair amountof hills and our 535 quad gets a workout climbing the hills. Add the caddy and banders on flatter ground and it will be close to the same. Run mid 80's percent of power in flat ground and in hills 100 to 112 percent.

How many feet of drill? Pulling a 47' with MRB'S and 6450 TBH cart takes 425HP at least in good hills.

Have the same set up as SWND along with double NH3 carts, it is doable with 425 hp but 480+hp works way better. What size drill and what size tractor are you planning on using? On flat ground the airseeder pulls easy, it is all the weight in the hills that kills you.

With 435hp in level ground you will be just fine. Always seems like air drills pull twice as easy on level ground than in in serious hills.
