MECHANICAL SEED DRILL (cereals-colza)
TRANSPORT WIDTH FT 8 - 10
S MARIA seed drill is ideal choice for minimum tilled soils: frame and units are extremely sturdy, high soil clearance and unit disposition on 3 ranks allow to operate also on abundant crop residues. On SC version is possible to deliver seed and fertilizer on the same furrow.
The special design of the seed and fertilizer combined drill allows you to optimize the amount of fertilizer used thus reducing overall fertilizer cost. Our combination unit also reduces the number of passes needed to go over the field. This will reduce compaction and overall fuel and labor costs. When comparing our fertilizer distribution to that of a spreader on uneven terrain our drill will give you a uniform application where a spreader unit cannot achieve such results.

Strong frame and heavy-duty transmission allows this seeder to easily cope with minimum tilled soils. Solid seeding units with long arm are disposed on three wide-spaced gangs: this reduces risk of clogging issues that can occur in worst minimum tillage conditions.
Three optionsare available to make drill machine suited to work on a wide range of soil conditions.
“R” ROW UNIT. Double coil spring allows the shank to have a good range of side and vertical oscillation: this makes the element perfect for stony or cloddy soils.
“L” ROW UNIT. Adjustable load spring can adjust this element to operate in a wide range of conditions, from softer to firmer soils.
DOUBLE DISC. This unit is suitable for minimum tillage and to work with high quantity of crop residues. Aggressive action of discs and adjustable load spring are useful in tougher soils; maintenance is minimal thanks to “Super Seal” bearings.
