The OS900 comes standard with Subaru or Honda power coupled to a self-propelled hydrostatic drive for infinite speed control. The Auto Drop system automatically stops and starts seed drop with reel engagement and disengagement, conserving seed.

General Equipment

Featuring total hydraulic operation, General Equipment Co.'s 660 DIG-R-MOBILE is designed for fence placement, sign installation and general homeowner and construction projects.
