Air seeder hose is flexible, abrasion resistant tubing with a low coefficient of friction interior to facilitate the smooth transfer of seed and fertilizer. Developed primarily for use in primary, secondary and tertiary lines on air seeder machines, air seeder hose is also ideal for liquid fertilizer spreading, drain lines, irrigation lines, standard duty water suction, construction dewatering, and trash pumps.
In air seeders, the hose plays an important role as the conduit through which seeds are smoothly transported from the central hopper to the seed distribution mechanism, or seed boots, that disperse the seeds into the ground.
Air seeder hoses are typically made from durable and flexible material that withstands the rigors of agricultural use and to allow for easy maneuverability as the air seeder moves through the field. Air seeder hoses vary in size, length and design, depending on the specific requirements of the air seeder system and crops being planted. The proper selection and maintenance of air seeder hoses are essential to ensure efficient seed delivery and maximize productivity during planting operations.
Most air seeder machines use 1,000 to 3,000+ feet of hose, so air seeder hose reliability at a competitive price is crucial to farmers across the country.
