BALENA

Air drill 30 and 39 ft workling width

Balena is a new standard for extensive cereal farms. Innovative tine units can prepare seedbed on undisturbed or minimum tilled soil and contemporaneously deliver seed + fertilizer in the same or in different furrows. 40 ft working width and XL rear cart (369 bu, 2/3 seed, 1/3 fertilizere) confers outstanding operating range and output. Modular system of tines bar + rear cart + rear spiral roller allow multiple configurations and use: all elements in use for cereal drill, only tines to be used as a passive cultivator for soil tillage, or also "shanks + rear cart" to localize fertilizer before seeding row crops.

VERSATILITY IN FIELD Open Close

VERSATILITY IN FIELD

Machine is made of 3 main parts: cultivator/planter, cart hopper and rear spiral roller. The use of machine with complete configuration allows to establish cereal and rape crops in a simple pass with a very extended working range.

Use of the tine bar only allows to use machine as a passive cultivator. Shutting some lines is possibile to use the bar and cart combination to localize fertilizer before planting of row crops, using obviously a GPS tracking system to find out lines later.

Folded frame is totally 5.5 m wide (18") when closed: this allow an easy transport of machine within the farm. Cart behind the drill bar gives always a good visibility to the driver during work and maneuvers.   

 

Electric or mechanical metering system Open Close

Electric or mechanical metering system

Seed and fertilizer distribution can be managed in two ways: electronic or mechanical. First one is controlled by a "Trimble" monitor/GPS (picture) that allows to check directly from tractor cab all seeding functions (rate kg/ha, alarms, etc...). The mechanical system is based on the reliable 3 cam oil bath gearboxes GASPARDO (1 for seed, 1 for fertilizer) and has as main advantage the simple and robust structure.

STRENGTHS OF GASPARDO SEED DISTRIBUTOR Open Close

GASPARDO SEED DISTRIBUTOR

STRENGTHS OF GASPARDO SEED DISTRIBUTOR

• The unit makes possible the distribution of seed and/or fertilizer with different granulate size, even in high quantities (theoretical maximum 276 lb/ac seed and 496 lb/ac fertilizer) in relation to sowing width and operation speed.

• Distribution unit is enclosed in cast aluminum with rust-proof stainless steel and polyethylene components.

• Continuous dosing variation by means of the gearbox.

Large diameter roller for low rotation speed to guarantee precise distribution.

Seed loading cells arranged in helical pattern to achieve a more even distribution.

Feelers for precise distribution without damaging the seeds and knock-out of foreign bodies.

Easy disengagement to avoid damages of pulpy and fragile seeds.

• Cleaning unit for oily seeds.

Distribution roller for small seeds with independent distribution rings to better manage different seed typology and rates.

Easy hopper empting

GASPARDO gear box- easy and precise

  • Our 3-cam transmission design allows us to acquire maximum accuracy versus many competitors that have a two cam design.
  • Calibration is very time saving using our one handle lever to set the rate.
  • All of our cams and bearings on the gearbox run in an oilbath so that you do not have to worry about greasing them

Air cart Open Close

Air cart

The large cart hopper between planter and rear roller confers a very extended working range: its total volume is 360 bu, enough for more than 60 acres when working in seed+fert mode or up to 100 acres when used only to deliver seeds. Inner space is diveded in 2 sectors of 1/3 (120bu for fertilizer) and 2/3 (240 bu for seed) of total volume, managed independently by two metering units.

Wide tyres Open Close

Wide tyres

XL tires of cart hopper (FRONT 500/45-22.5  REAR 710/45-26.5) reduce soil compaction of drilled surface. Particular flat design and parallel ribs of tire tread improves floating effect and adds a selfcleaning action.

TWIN ROW UNITS Open Close

AQUILEIAancora 300x200

TWIN ROW UNITS

On a working width of 12 m Aquileia has totally 48 tines: each one has a double spring safety to operate non-stop in most challenging conditions like hard or stony soils. Every tine has 2 seed outlets, for a final row spacing of 125 mm: this solution allows to get high seed population with low number of elements. Configuration with 5 well-spaced ranks and high clearance frame allow to drill with no clogging of soil or residues even at highest working speed (10-12 km/h). 

QUICK TIP REPLACEMENT Open Close

snap fit 300 x 400

QUICK TIP REPLACEMENT

Tines have a delta tip with snap-fit system for the quick replacemnent of worn out or damaged parts. Special tips are available to deliver seed and fertilizer on different furrows and depth: this is specially required for drilling spring cereals, when fertilization at seeding have much more considerable Nitrogen rates.

REAR ROLLER Open Close

roller 300 x 200

REAR ROLLER

Rear spiral roller is divided in 9 sections and is linked to the hopper cart with a steering drawbar: this makes definitely easy maneuvering at field edge nevertheless the considerable length of all the "train". Main action of roller is sub-compaction of soil moved from seeding: this guarantees always a good contact of seed to soil moisture for a quick and uniform germination.
