The color coded depth control collars on each of the frame lift cylinders (4) give a visual confirmation that each of the cylinders is at the correct depth. Utilizing the same combination of collars on each cylinder assures seeding depth will be uni-form. Seed depth change require only minutes and is done at the lift cylinders. No changes at the seed openers are required. Compare the simplicity of just four adjustments versus forty-eight individual depth adjustments as is necessary with competitive drills.
Row Spacings Available:
48 Rows (6-9) 6" Twin Rows on 15" Centers
24 Row (6-24) 6" Twin Rows on 30" Centers
Each tool bar on the SF9831NT single disk drill consists of two pairs of seeding disks and two packer tires. Each pair of seeding disks is mounted opposed on a common strut. This patented feature accounts for many of the unique seeding characteristics of this drill. By placing all of the openers in a single row, the opener spacing stays uniform in turns and when drifting on side slopes. The amount of soil coverage over each seed row is more uniform with this arrangement because there are no back rows to cover front rows.
With all of the displaced soil thrown between the disks and in front of the packer tire, more loose soil is created for packing and less open furrows are created than with competitive single disk designs. With the seed placed precisely at each edge of the packer tire, crusting is virtually eliminated as the seedling has an unpacked path to the surface. The five degree angle of the packer tire (a patented feature) scrub and compact the soil closing the seed trench as well as keeping the tires cleaner in sticky conditions.
ROW UNITS - DOUBLE DISC
48 Rows 7.5" Spacing
All-purpose openers feature wide-set 1/2" parallel links for better depth control and dead-on accuracy in seed placement.
Two retention springs generate 400 plus pounds at the soil entry pinch point of the opener blade. The pairing of the All-Purpose openers and hydraulic toolbars produce unparalleled row unit travel. At thirty-two inches of opener travel, the SF9831NT consistently maintains seeding depth and seed placement in the uneven or terraced ground better than any other double disc drill. Down-force pressures are easily adjusted from no-till to conventional seeding without the need for tools. 15" diameter x 3.5 mm "Heads Up Opener Blades" eliminate pairing of rows, premature leading blade wear and side loading of bearings. UHMW Soil-controlling devices minimize soil blowout from opener blades for faster seeding in all soil types in both no-till or conventional seedbeds.
is positioned forward of the opener blade mount. The metal seed tube transitions from round at the top to a narrow oval to gain control of the seed to position it uniformly into the seed furrow. Soil controlling devices minimize soil blowout from opener blades in all soil types in both no-till or conventional seedbeds ensuring seed to soil contact.
