Power up your pasture
Direct drilling is a quick way of upgrading both quality and density of stock feed in your pastures.
John Shearer offers our classic Pasture Drill with Double Disc Openers for zero-till seeding. Sowing with Double Disc Openers leaves a smoother soil profile and will assist in reducing water run-off. Seed placement depth is very uniform, increasing germination rates.
The combination of excellent trashflow and minimal soil disturbance makes our Double Disc Openers an ideal choice for sowing into existing pastures without prior tillage.
Four sizes are available: 10 row with 1.8m sowing width, 13 row – 2.3m, 16 row – 2.9m and 19 row – 3.4m.
Robust wide range gearbox
Sowing rates are easy to calibrate via the wide range gearbox. Simply attach the provided handle to adjust the metering system as needed.
Large Seed and Fertilizer Hopper
More hopper capacity means fewer refills and faster sewing.
Heavy Duty Construction
In the Shearer tradition the whole machine is built to last with particular attention paid to the frame and axles.
Wide Range of Seed Types
Fluted distributors can be fitted in one or both compartments and designed to handle a very wide range of seed types. Fine seeds such as clovers, lucerne and canola through to large legumes.
Tailored to your tractor
Each pasture drill is configured for 3-point linkage connection or with an optional trailing hitch kit, as required.
