seed press wheels

Seed press wheel

The stainless steel seed presswheel increases seed to soil contact improving crop emergence. It can be easily excluded when not needed.

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.

Beaver tail Open Close

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.

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.

The "Fertisystem" open coil auger distributor can deliver with extreme uniformity any kind of solid fertilizer, even ones with very inconsistent grains. Central dosing adjustment is easy, quick and reliable thanks to Gaspardo variator

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.

Self lubricant bushings 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.

Wing compensation system Open Close

side wing comp

Wing compensation system

Side wings have their own transmission and can float to follow uneven soil profiles. Each time machine is lifted an hydraulic compensation system brings the two wings higher than central section: this feature makes easier turning on field heads. 

Air spring Open Close
