MAXIMETRO

PNEUMATIC PRECISION PLANTER WITH TRAILED FOLDABLE FRAME
IN 3 SECTION WITH FLOATING WINGS

The highly flexible folding trailed frame split into 3 sections follows the contours of the ground with an overall range of 16 degrees, keeping planting depth constant across all units. The quick folding design means the machine can fold up to a transport width of 6.0 m.

Tracks reduce soil compaction Open Close

Maximetro track

Tracks reduce soil compaction

The track system with triple support design evenly distributes the weight all across the track. No  flat tires, less soil compaction, and building up when steering thanks to the idler movement. The track assembly is reliable and virtually maintenance free. Rubber track reduces compaction even in extremely muddy or wet soil conditions. Thanks to its wide contact surface, the track system minimizes soil structure degradation and deep compaction effect.

Arm strong Open Close

ARM STRONG

Arm strong

This planting unit is designed for seeding in rough conditions and at high working speeds. The parallel linkage arm is made of one piece of high tensile cast steel. This design prevents from twisting and bending under loads and impacts which can occur in the toughest working conditions. Self-lubricating bushings, release oil particles that lubricate the hinge points and are maintenance free.

Trash wheels Open Close

Trash wheels

The adjustable trash wheels clean the row from the crop residues. They prevent from uneven gauge wheels depth control and from trash burying on top of the row.

Seeding tube Open Close

Seeding tube

Our unique seed tube design keeps the precise accuracy that comes from the meetering unit all the way into the furrow. Its special design prevents seed from bouncing during the drop.

PTO transmission Open Close

PTO shaft 1

PTO transmission

The PTO shaft transfers rotary power through gear boxes to planting unit, replacing chains and sprockets that require maintenance before every planting season. The advantages of PTO unit transmission are:

  • No chains that must be serviced before every planting season.
  • No sprockets that need serviced, on average, every 3-5 years.
  • Ensuring a long service life from a totally sealed and maintenance free drive solution.
  • In-line clutch that allows for individual row shut-off.

Air spring Open Close

Air spring

The air spring device allows to adapt down-pressure to field conditions. Cab controls on Trimble equipped planters allow to adjust the down-pressure from 250 up to 450 lbs per row.

Singulators for the best accuracy Open Close

Selettore seme

Singulators for the best accuracy

The double seed singulator action can be checked from the back inspection window and it can be very quickly and easily adjusted according to the seed size and shape. Singulation is carried out on both sides of the seeding plate avoiding doubles and skips. Singulator adjustment allows delivery with high accuracy even using different hybrids of seeds without seed plate replacement.

Super scraper Open Close

Super scraper

The spring loaded Tungsten carbide scrapers carry out the disc cleaning in all conditions, muddy spots or unexpected shower will not affect anymore your productivity, no maintenance required. The scraper has a wear resistant Tungsten carbide profile for NON-STOP working. The Tungsten carbide scraper makes it very easy to plant in heavy soil conditions.

Beaver tail Open Close

Beaver tail

Beaver tail

Our unique closing wheel bracket (named the Beaver Tail) is constructed of a solid cast steel solution giving you unsurpassed strength and durability.  This helps to greatly reduce the chances of bending or twisting the closing wheel bracket while adding to the downforce of the closing wheels.  This closing wheel assymbly also has a dual cam adjustment just in case you ever need to re-allign the bracket.

Hydraulic transmission Open Close

Trasmissione idraulica

Hydraulic transmission

Hydraulic driving system to quickly change revolutions in relation to seed population. This transmission allows variable seed rate according to distribution maps.

Disc coulter Open Close

disco aprisolco frontale

Disc coulter

Unit front mounted disc coulter cuts hard soil under minimum or no-till conditions. The wave profile creates extremely fine 7/8” thick wide slot suitable for wet, dry and spongy soils where it can be difficult to close the furrow.

SBS - Seed Braking System Open Close

seed braking system

SBS - Seed Braking System

When seed falls into the narrow V shape furrow it stops immediately, maintaining an even spacing and a great seed to soil contact. Falling seed speed decreases from 6 to 0 mph in less then 1/12 of second.

Super seal Open Close

Super seal

The double row ball bearings are oversized and guarantee reliability in the most demanding working conditions including rocky soil. Long life is guaranteed by triple seal protection. The hub is dust proof which makes it ideal to work in wet conditions as well.
