Frame mounted hoppers
• Different seed and or fertilizer bin configuration options.
• The Polyethylene tanks are suitable for liquid as well as granular fertilizer.
Metering units: Stainless steel metering units with individual line metering. This means each divider head has its own individual meter roller and there is only one divider head between the row unit and the metering roller which ensures maximum accuracy with an air seeder as eliminates the possibility of variation between sections.
Metering roller: Pintle cog metering roller with a roller cleaning brush system. The roller has no horizontal surfaces therefore there is no chance of building up with fertilizer powder.
Exhausts excess air to allow for optimum air and seed flow, resulting in consistent seed placement. The optimum air flow achieved prevents blockages and seed from being blown out of the furrow.
Parallel seed boot mount for superior seed depth placement by keeping the seed boot parallel to the ground. This prevents seed shooting out the furrow during the float of the unit or partial breakaway.
Large gauge wheel combined with spring downforce with very flat force curve for superior floatation characteristics.
Quick downforce adjustment.
Quick adjust seed depth setting
Seed and fertilizer depth placement = 16 increments, 0 – 80mm (1/4”-3+”) Depending on soil type.
Two coulter options available:
- 18” (457 mm) coulter: For harder soils and where deep seed placement is not required.
- 20” (508 mm) coulter: For looser soils and/or where deep seed placement is required.
Steel closing wheel with notches for excellent closing ability in tough soil conditions. Two options available:
- Single Closing Wheel: Ideal for harder and/or stickier soils. Works well in most conditions.
- Double Closing Wheel: Suitable for looser soils where a mound above the seed is desired.
