DIRETTA

MECHANICAL AIR DRILL FOR DIRECT SEEDING

The DIRETTA model is ideal for direct seeding and for sowing on minimum tillage conditions. It is a mechanical drill suitable for all types of seeds: cereals, soybean, rape, grass etc.
On request, the DIRETTA CORSA version can distribute both seeds and fertilizer: the hopper can be split to have fertilizer option.

Furrow closing system Open Close

Furrow closing system

The closure of the narrow furrow is obtained by a tapered wheel mounted on an independent arm. This allows for the wheel to move independently of the unit,  running beside the furrow so that there will not be to much compaction over the furrow.  The closing system works very well in rocky conditions. 

Seeding depth limiter Open Close

To vary the depth from 1 to 3 in. all you have to do is change the limiter on the side of the disc.  

Rubber gauge wheel Open Close

Rubber gauge wheel

The rubber gauge wheel systems is for the farmer who like to make adjustments to the seed depth often.  We can do this with a pin adjustment on the side of the unit.  The rubber gauge wheel system is not as suitable as the cast iron unit in very wet heavy soil type conditions.

Seed depth control Open Close

Seed depth control

Thanks to the seeding depth control made of cast steel you will have no problem maintaining a constant depth even in the harshest conditions. The depth limiter is made of a hard cast steel thus helping with the penetration of the disc while making sure that your seed depth is uniform producing an even emergence. Due to weight of the unit we have no problem working well in rocky conditions.  Even wet conditions are not a problem with our tungsten carbide scrapers to keep the heavy soil away from the openers and limiters.

Penetration capability Open Close

Penetration capability

The capacity of penetration in difficult conditions is given by the large notched disc (19 in. diameter) and thanks to the reduced angle of action creates a groove very thin, thus giving reduced disturbance to the soil. The disks are connected to the frame using heavy arms and sturdy cast steel. Thanks to the hydraulic hitch the transport wheels raise totally off of the ground during field work causing maximum penetration of the units. The spring structure perpendicular to the ground allows the element to follow even very irregular shapes and to keep constant pressure applied to the soil.

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
