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 in sowing widths and opener configurations to suit every set of needs.

Four sizes are available: 10 row with 1.8m sowing width, 13 row – 2.3m, 16 row – 2.9m and 19 row – 3.4m.

Pasture Tyne Drill

The Tyne Drill is generally suited to situations where pastures are being sown into fully cultivated seed beds, or where any existing pasture has been completely removed by prior spray applications. The three ranks of tynes provide excellent ability for trash to pass between the tynes during sowing.

Fitted with 580 single spring tynes. 620 double spring tynes also available.

Coulter Tyne Drill

The Coulter Tyne Drill is recommended for use in the improvement of existing pastures where some or all of that existing pasture is intended to be retained. The coulters cut a path ahead of each sowing tyne which minimizes disturbance of existing pasture.

Pasture Disc Drill

The Disc Drill uses an adjustable breast cut to vary the width of the slot. By cutting a slot just wide enough to sow seed and fertiliser, soil firmness can be maintained, minimizing lost grazing time.

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 sowing.

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.
