GIGANTE 900

PNEUMATIC SEED DRILL FOR DIRECT SEEDING OF CEREALS (cereals-colza)
HYDRAULIC CLOSING FRAME
TRANSPORT WIDTH 5,30 m
WORKING WIDTH m 9.00

 

See drill for “direct sowing” of cereals, soya, rape, lucerne, and other fodder crops on untilled ground.
It has a great operational capacity and therefore high productivity levels combined with a folding frame for transport.

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

chiusura solco diretta

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. 

2 point hitch Open Close

2 point hitch

Our cast two point hitch allows for easy hookup and great versatility in the field because of the multiple pivot points.

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

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.  

STRENGTHS OF GASPARDO SEED DISTRIBUTOR Open Close

GASPARDO SEED DISTRIBUTOR

STRENGTHS OF GASPARDO SEED DISTRIBUTOR

• The unit makes possible the distribution of seed and fertilizer with different granulate size, even in high quantities (theoretical maximum 350 kg/ha seed and 550 kg/ha 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
