ELEFANTE

PNEUMATIC SEED DRILL FOR DIRECT SEEDING OF CEREALS (cereals-colza)
WORKING WIDTH 12 m
AIR CART WITH 13000 l CAPACITY

Designed for sowing on large areas, the Elefante model is top of the line for performance and autonomy. The carted hopper towed behind the seeding frame allows great visibility of sowing units from driver cab. The three sections foldable frame fitted with nitrogen accumulators allows uniform seeding even on very uneven terrains and to transport the drill on road.

  • Pneumatic seed drill with centralized distributor and pneumatic delivery
  • Trailed version: 2 point hitch, cat. III and/or cat. IV
  • Hydraulicaly lifted transport trolley with 19.0/45 - 17 PR14 wheels
  • Dampened, indipendent planting unit
  • Independent seed-covering wheel
  • Calibration control
  • Calibration and emptying tray
  • Inner seed hopper light
  • Lighting kit
  • Tungsten soil scraper
  • Seed covering harrow
  • AIR CART
  • 4 bearing wheels
  • The bearing wheels (type 500 45-22.5 front - type 710 45-26.5 rear) make the Air Cart independent and therefore prevent the weight from loading and discharging on to the toolbar with the planting units. There is a ladder inside the hoppers.
  • Fan
  • Fan drive with tractor-oil dependent system
  • The fan can be operated with an internal combustion engine
  • Mechanical drive
  • Strongly-built and reliable mechanical transmission to the seed dosers
  • Hopper capacity - 2/3 seed - 1/3 fertilizer
  • Total capacity - 13000 I
  • Dosing rollers (two for each type): G1000 mounted, F25-125 supplied, G1002 mounted for fertilizer
  • Hydraulic loading auger
  • Dosing roller N500 for medium quantities (max 200 kg/Ha), Soy
  • Seed blockage monitor
  • Load cells
  • Diesel engine for the fan
Penetration capability Open Close

Penetration capability

The capacity of penetration in difficult conditions is given by the large notched disc (475 mm/18.7in 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.

Furrow closing system Open Close

Furrow closing system

The closure of the narrow furrow is obtained by a tapered wheel mounted on an arm independent of the unit itself.  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. 

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.

Seed and Fertilizer Open Close

Seed and Fertilizer

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.

Seeding depth limiters Open Close

Seeding depth limiters

To vary the depth from 5cm/2in to 3cm/1in all you have to do is change the limiter on the side of the disc.
