Hiniker offers three different hopper sizes and multiple machine configurations for traditional broadcast seeding as well as exclusive Hiniker interseeding options. These cover crop seeding systems are designed to fit different applications in different geographical areas. Available in 20-, 30- and 40-cu. ft. sizes, hoppers and metering systems are constructed of corrosion resistant #201 and #304 stainless steel for maximum durability and reliability.

20- and 30-cu. ft. hoppers are equipped with 24 seed meters, while 40-cu. ft. sizes have 36 meters. Metering systems are available with variable rate hydraulic drive or 12 volt variable rate electric drive.
