Gearbox

Infinitely adjustable, allows small incremental changes to the sowing rates. Important when sowing small seeds.

Wide Loading Platform

A large 450mm wide rear loading platform complete with handrail and steps.

Robust Main Chasis

The frame includes, large 16mm thick wheel mounts, fitted with high flotation tyres, two 12mm front to rear frame supports and three 75mmx75mm mounting ranks. Lead between ranks are 470mm between 1 and 2, 425mm between 2 to 3.

Calibration

The machine includes electronic scales for sowing rate calibration and an in-cab electronic hectaremeter.

Double Disc Opener

The John Shearer double disc opener is well built to perform in many different soil types and conditions. The compact and unique design, ensures the press wheel is much closer to the sowing boot than most others on the market. The opener is a true parallelogram unit and is based around two carriers. The mounting carrier attaches the unit to the frame. The main carrier has the ground engaging coulters and press wheel attached. The press wheel provides depth control, as well as compaction of the soil around the seed, to assist with germination. Being a parallelogram design, the opener’s ability to follow ground contours is enhanced for a more uniform seed placement.

The opener has 254mm (10”) of vertical ground following capability.
