Seedbed Finisher

Seedbed Finisher

The Wil-Rich Seedbed Finisher is the perfect tool for creating a seedbed in the Mississippi Delta. Available in pull-type (Model 1400) and 3-point (Model 1403) options, this do-all machine penetrates, mixes, smooths and firms the ground, preparing your fields for even emergence of delicate crops.

By preparing the soil correctly, a planter can run right behind the Wil-Rich Seedbed Finisher, preserving moisture and extending the planting window. Built for both raised seedbeds and flat or rolling ground, the Wil-Rich Seedbed Finisher features the heaviest cutter reel to penetrate the ground. It can also incorporate chemicals effectively, resulting in a more productive seedbed.

The Model 1400 Seedbed Finisher can be fitted with two rows of shanks.
