Double Singulator System (DSS) Open Close

Double Singulator System (DSS)

The cast-alluminum distributor equipped with the Double Singulator System (DSS) that delivers one seed, and one seed only, from each meter disc hole. The primary singulator removes doubles and gently drop them back into the seed sump. The secondary singulator, with cam adjustments, accurately meters the smallest and rawest seeds before the vacuum cut-off gasket. Seed is released near the bottom of the seed disc rotation, providing a short seed drop. The short drop minimizes the potential for interference or delay as the seed travels to the seed trench, providing accurate seed spacing.

Vacuum disc cleaning and emptying system Open Close

Vacuum disc cleaning and emptying system

Vacuum is created by a PTO driven vacuum blower. The big diameter blower with 16 outlets runs at a slower speed, providing the same amount of vacuum pressure at the seed meter. The use-friendly sliding knob lets the operator regulate the vacuum level depending on the veggie to be planted. A convenient vacuum gauge located on the planter hitch gives a visual indication of the vacuum level from the cab. A standard secondary air system cleans out plugged disc holes blowing pressurized air to the backside of the seed plate. This air flow is previously purified from dust and debris by the standard filter. The vacuum emptying system allows you to easily clean out the hoppers and distributors from unused seeds. The flexible hose is connected to the vacuum blower and collects seeds in the hopper place on the 3-point hitch.

On the field, without the use of tools, you can easily rotate the seed cover by hand to adapt furrow closure to the soil condions.

Toolbar Open Close

Toolbar

Gaspardo offers a full line of frame options; Rigid, folding, telescopic or stacker frames are only some of the different toolbars available. The innovative folding mechanism of the stacker toolbar hydraulically lifts the outer wings over the center section, keeping the seed and chemical hoppers upright for transport. When in the planting mode, the Hydraulic Compensation System permits the planter to hug rolling soil and maintaining accurate seed depth. Combining this flexibility with the ability to fold for transport in sec, you have a multi-veggie planting system designed to get to the field and get the job done.

Coulters

To be accurate, you want a smooth, consistent slit trench. That’s why we equipped the shoe with a front reversible cast-iron coulter. Reversing the front coulter operator can set a shallow (0.3 inch), intermediate (0.6 inch) or deep (1 inch) seed placement. The shoe features with long sides plates in order to firm both sides of the seed trench. The center of the seed trench is capped for a soft top by the seed covering system adjustable for alignment with the seed trench.

Parallelogram connection and press wheels

Each row unit is mounted on sturdy parallelogram linkage in order to provide great vertical travel and minimal twisting and bending effects. All pivoting points feature with self-lubricating bushings for maintenance-free performance. The 10 inches diameter front and rear press wheels are connected by a self-balancing system to follow every soil profile and minimize depth variation. Many types of press wheelsare available (stainless, soft or rigid rubber, mash metal) with adjustable and individual mud scrapers for clogging-free operations.

Large diameter seed plates

The stainless steel seed disc can have a single, double or triple row of holes with a wide range of hole number (up to 180) diameters (from 0.5 mm) for every seed size from lettuce to cucumber. The discs have a large diameter and they rotate more slowly than other vacuum meters improving spacing precision and reducing parts wearing. Seed pick-up starts at the at the 4 o’clock position. Seed is exposed to the seed cell for a longer period of time, providing superior seed singling. Superior seed pick-up is provided as the combination of rotating agitator and the anti-overflow plate.

The model with double metering system planter, called OLIMPIA, was developed to off er maximum accuracy for twin row seeding. Various accessories adapt the machine to every soil type and crop, the stainless steel or rubber seed-press wheels are particularly interesting because they improve the seed-soil contact and crop emergence.

Gearbox Open Close

Gearbox

Large diameter drive-wheels are adjustable on height in order to lift up the toolbar when planting on raised bed. Thanks to two pre-loaded springs each drive wheels can set in floating position ensuring a smooth seed disc revolution even on wet patches, ditches or extremely uneven terrain. The 36 ratio gearbox provides an infinitely variable population settings (from ⅕ inch and 21 ½ inches.) which allow the operator to achieve the picket fence stands that competitors do not offer. Setting changes can be made easily, without tools.
