Field Proven

Hitch & Go

The StackCORE™ features a massive dual hitch design capable of CAT 3 and 4N hitching. This allows quick tractor swaps and hookups with no worry of your tractor hitch Category.


1/2″ thick 7×7 tubing and wide hinges, combine to make the strongest and most durable stacking planter toolbar on the market. Weight is distributed across the machine where you need it to keep your heigh-speed planter units in the ground, no matter the conditions.

Lock it Down

Automatic hydraulic wing locks on the StackCORE™ automatically lock the wings into place when unfolding, keeping you in the cab and your wings locked down and ready to plant.

Precision Depth Control

Rugged adjustable gauge wheels and tires are included on each machine to accurately manage operating height.

Stay Safe out There

High visibility LED safety lighting and marking are standard on all CORE toolbars. You may be the biggest thing on the road, but you will still be glad you have bright and visible front and rear flashers and marking.

Smart Design

Integrated frame-vacuum, simple wiring, and incorporated electrical and hydraulic routing features, eliminates the mess common to many high-tech planters.

No Guesswork

Engineered design and accommodates all of your electronic components, making install possible with simple hand tools. No more designing, fabricating, welding or painting to mount all of your technology.

Easy Access

With the end user and serviceability in mind, Hawkins engineers placed all electronic and hydraulic components in an easily accessible area with plenty of room to work. No contortionist certification needed here.


With 25 degrees of flex, the wings of the Hawkins StackCORE™ easily follows the counters of your fields, keeping your row units right where they need to be, even in uneven terrain.

Trailed Performance

With 25 degrees of flex in the 3-section frame, the Hawkins StackCORE™ rivals the flexibility of many pull-type planters on the market today.

Hydraulic Weight Transfer

Quit worrying about yield loss from excessive center frame compaction with the StackCORE’s™ integrated hydraulic weight transfer system. The easy to set and easy to operate system allows you to experience the benefits of bulk-seed and high-speed planting without worrying about yield loss, inconsistent planting and reduced plant vigor.

Constant Contact

Using the weight of the center to apply down force on the wings the toolbar keeps the wing row units in constant ground contact, keeping consistent seed depth placement across the entire width of the planter. This is especially helpful in No-Till and high-speed planting situations.

Take Your Pick

The StackCORE™ planter is available with a 55-bushel bulk-seed tank and simple air delivery system, or individual row unit hoppers so you can build it to fit your needs.

Keeping' it Simple

Whether you are looking for capability to fill your planter easily with seed bags, or wanting the simplicity of row hopper over bulk fill, the StackCORE™ is equipped to meet your needs.

Bulk-Seed System

Equipped with a 55-bushel bulk-seed tank and simple air delivery system, the Hawkins StackCORE™ keeps you in the field longer between seed refills.

Bulk Made Easy

The single 55-bushel bulk-seed tank on the StackCORE™ allows for quick and easy fills, and the tank design fits an entire Pro-Box without having to push seed to the corners.

Climb with Confidence

The ladder and platform on the StackCORE™ are built like a tank, just in case you are too. The simple and robust design make the climb stable and easy for all.

Diverse Delivery
