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.
