Sutton Ag planter sled

Our custom built Sutton Ag Seed Planter Sled makes your precision seeder even more precise.

Proper seed planter support and weight distribution are essential for accurate seed placement. This is achieved through the use of a planter sled.

Planter sleds also provide optimum planter tracking for more accurate cultivation, improved planting depth control, and even greater planting depth control with the addition of bed rollers.

Our adjustable height planter sleds provide optimum planter support and weight distribution, making your precision equipment even more precise. We custom build every planter sled to grower specs.

Sleds can be built with numerous options:

  • Material applicators
  • Walking surfaces
  • Seating
  • Railing
  • Spray system
  • Bed shaper
  • On-board storage, etc.

Custom Built Catwalk

Our custom built catwalk is a popular option for our sleds and stacker bars. A catwalk provides a very useful observation area and walking surface for your planter.

From the catwalk, you can:

  • Safely observe the planting process
  • Assure seed levels are correct
  • Refill seed hoppers
  • Check for shoe clogging

In addition to providing an observation deck, the catwalk also provides space for carrying seed containers and planting supplies.

  • Each catwalk is built to your specifications, and can accommodate nearly any desired walking surface.
  • Catwalk can be built with seating, railing, storage containers, etc.
  • Catwalk can be incorporated into the design of your planter sled, or it can be built to attach to your existing planter sled.
  • Catwalk can also be incorporated into the design of your stacker bar (visit our stacker bar page for more information)

Bed Shapers:

Crops that need to be grown on perfectly shaped beds require special bed shaping equipment. We offer bed shapers in a variety of styles.

Bed shapers can be incorporated into the design of a new planter sled.
