Seed Drill Rental

The Douglas County Conservation District rents out our Truax No-Till Seed Drill to landowners in Douglas County and Elbert County.

Truax drills are designed to plant grasses and legumes on a variety of site conditions.

We also sell native grass mixes available online at the Shop page.

  • Double disc furrow openers and depth bands optimize seed placement and seed-to-soil contact.
  • Multiple seed boxes give you the flexibility to seed native fluffy seeds, cool season species, small grains, legumes, and wildflowers.
  • Planting can be accomplished as no-till and inter-seeding in most conditions, from hard pastures and roadsides to crop residue and cover crops.

The cost of rental is $150.00 base fee for 5 acres or less, plus $10.00 per acre (up to 20 additional acres), then $5.00 per acre above 20. A $250.00 refundable deposit will be held until the drill is returned in the condition it was rented in.


Colorado Drivers License, current auto insurance, and a minimum of a 3/4 ton pickup truck (for towing) and at least a 40 HP tractor (for seeding). Property must be within Douglas County or eastern Elbert County, Colorado. Dry soil conditions are a must as wet soil inhibits the seed from falling properly.
