Brillion
Agricultural Seeders

The concept behind the Brillion Sure Stand Agricultural Seeders has not changed since 1948: precise metering of a given seed variety and consistent depth of seed placement. Read More…

The Sure Stand Concept

The Brillion Sure Stand Concept has survived the test of time and the challenges from many competitors and many different seeding methods. However, the simplicity of the Sure Stand Concept is still the best way to seed legumes and grasses efficiently. The larger front notched roller firms the seedbed and puts shallow indentations into the soil surface. The seed is metered from the seed boxes to free fall onto the deflectors. The deflectors spread the seed across the full width of the seeder for a broadcast style of seeding. The smaller rear roller, with its notches splitting the middle of the front indentations, squeezes the soil around the seed for the ultimate in seed to soil contact and consistent seed placement. That’s the Sure Stand Concept.

Models Available

Three-Point Hitch Models (SSP Series)

The SSP Series is available in 4’, 5’ and 6’ sizes. Equipped with a meter and agitator box as standard equipment, these three-point hitch models will do everything the larger machines can do, only on a much smaller scale. Coil tine wheel track removers and blade agitators in the rear seed box are standard. The close coupled hitch on these models allows use with compact tractors for excellent maneuverability in close quarters. These units may be small in size but they are big on features.

Standard Series

The Standard Series of Sure Stand Seeders are the most popular and most versatile of the agricultural models. They are available in 8’, 10’ and 12’ sizes, in either Cat. II three-point hitch or pull-type models with hydraulic transport. They are available with both the legume box and brome box. Spring tine or coil tine track remover kits are available and highly recommended. An electronic acre meter is also offered as optional equipment.

Mid-Size Series

The Mid-Size Series is available in 8’, 10’ and 12’ sizes, in either Cat. II three-point hitch or pull-type models with hydraulic transport. These seeders employ the same bottom end for soil engagement and seed placement as all of the other Sure Stand models. However, the Mid-Size Series features a larger capacity legume box for better efficiency in the field. Spend less time filling and more time seeding… that’s the advantage of the Mid-Size Series. The seed meters on the Mid-Size Series are placed closer together for added seeding distribution. The brome box option is not available on the Mid-Size Series, but other options are the same as the other Sure Stand Seeders Models.

High Capacity Series

The High Capacity Series features the largest seeding capacity of all Brillion Sure Stand Agricultural Seeders. 8’, 10’ and 12’ sizes are available. Built with many of the same features as the Standard Series and the Mid-Size Series, these models offer even larger seed box capacities with narrow meter spacing to provide the ultimate in high efficiency seeding. These seeders are available in Cat. II three-point hitch and pull-type models with hydraulic transport. The large boxes have seed level site windows, cover latches and gas struts to hold the large covers in the open position for filling. The brome box is not available for this series, but other options are the same as the other Sure Stand Seeders.

Why Risk It?

Grass seed is a very expensive commodity. Because of Brillion’s precision placement of seeds, seeding rates can often be cut to nearly half of the rates previously used. In many cases the savings in seed alone will pay for a Sure Stand Seeder in just a short time. Don’t risk your crop to another system. Don’t settle for less. Use the one seeding method you can count on time after time…a Brillion Sure Stand Seeder.

Seed Rate Information

Before choosing your new Brillion Seeder, it is important to know if you have the correct Brillion Seeder for your needs.  While all Brillion Seeders appear to be very similar, there are distinct differences to consider before making your purchase.  Please consult the seed rate charts to see if this is the right Brillion Seeder for the varieties of seed you wish to plant.
