  • Bourgault's Class A approach to product distribution allows for unrivaled flexibility for single, double and the TriMax™ Triple-Shoot distribution options, delivering unrivaled seed safety with even the highest product rates.


From extra wide catwalks and secure handrails, to extra illumination at night, Bourgault designs help you, and those around you, stay safe during the busy seeding season.

  • The wide platform and comfortable staircase allow for safe and secure access to the air cart top.
  • Handrails on both sides of the catwalk ensure extra security.
  • Safety catches on the tank lids prevent lid strikes if the Operator inadvertently opens the tank when pressurized.
  • The Powerlids option adds the convenience to remotely open the lids.
  • Seven exterior LED lights allow for greater visibility and Operator safety when seeding at night.
  • A rear-view camera allows you to monitor traffic behind the air cart when transporting to the next seeding location.


9000 Series Air Carts are equipped with high capacity load/unload conveyors.
Bourgault has always lead the market for practical and efficient product handling options that allow the Operator to get back in the field sooner.

  • High Capacity Conveyors move more bushels per minute with minimal damage to the most delicate seeds. The leading carts offer the same benefits through the innovative folding conveyor.
  • The BulkBoom™ Product Transfer option allows Operators to unload mini-bulk bags into the Saddle Tank™ or 3rd tank without a loader or forklift.
  • The FillChute™ option allows the Saddle Tank™ to be filled with the conveyor.
  • The BagLift™ Product Transfer System is an alternative option that offers hydraulic elevation of seed bags to the tank top.

Triple Shoot Fan Configuration - 9000 Series Air Seeder

Hydraulic Requirements & Recommendations

  • Minimum operating pressure of 2,900 psi.
  • Recommended operating pressure of 3,100 psi.
  • Hydraulic flow requirements are dependent on type of air cart fan selected.


Minimum Fan Speed Requirements
Each air cart is equipped with a Minimum Fan Speed Chart Manual to identify the best starting point for specific products.

Hydraulic Recommendations
Leading 9000 Series Fan Configuration

When determining the fan option that will best suit your requirements, consider:

  • drill size and spacing;
  • typical seeding speed and maximum expected product rates;
  • hydraulic requirements of the air drill paired with the air cart;
  • hydraulic capacity of the tractor.


The High-Capacity Fan is recommended if selecting an air drill equipped with an 8 or 10 port primary manifold.

  • Is also an option for the TriMax™ seed line if the drill is equipped with 10-port primary manifolds.
  • Provides the air capacity to deliver typical to high rates for large scale drills seeding at typical seeding speed.
  • The fan rotor is 3½" wide and is equipped with a 16 cc hydraulic motor that can achieve up to 6,000 rpm.
  • To achieve maximum performance and reduce possible coupler failures, ¾" hydraulic couplers are required.


The High-Speed Fan is recommended for 60' and larger drills equipped with an 6 or 8-port primary manifold.

  • Available for the third product line in a TriMax™ Triple-Shoot configuration.
  • The fan rotor is 2½" wide and is equipped with a 12 cc hydraulic motor that is able to achieve up to 6,000 rpm.
  • To achieve maximum performance and reduce possible coupler failures, ¾" hydraulic couplers are required.


The High-Pressure Fan is recommended for the 3420 ParaLink Hoe Drill™, 3330SE-86 or 3335QDA-86 PHD™ on 10" and 12" spacing and the 3720-70 or 3820-70 PCD™ on 10" spacing.

  • The High-Pressure Fan is equipped with a large back swept rotor fitted with a 19 cc hydraulic motor.
  • To achieve maximum performance, units equipped with the High-Pressure Fan have 1" hydraulic lines across the drill and air cart and ¾" hydraulic couplers.


The Regular Fan is only available on the 8000 Series Air Cart, or on the 6" seed line of a TriMax™ Distribution System on the 9000 I Series Air Cart.
