The Seedking direct drill range is one of the worlds leading direct drill for
contractors and heavy users.
Single disc openers are set at 7 degree castor and camber to allow for a better
“cut and drive”. This method of direct seeding requires less horsepower,
creates a nice firm seed bed and creates less compaction. A heavy cast iron press
wheel follows the disc to close the slot.
Practical experience suggest that this method of sowing results in seed emergence
of up to 50% faster than other systems.
The drills are available as gravity or air seeder models and up to 4 products
(seed, fertilizer, small seed and granuals) can be sown in one pass. Fertiliser is placed next to the seed.
Aitchison Seedking drills have the ability to transfer the drill weight forward,
to increase penetration into hard soil conditions, and back to alleviate deeper
than required penetration into softer soils using its unique electro-hydraulic
depth control mechanism.
The Seedking range outperforms the traditional triple disc system as it requires
less force and weight, creates an ideal seedbed and creates better soil to seed
contact with its heavy cast iron press wheels.
Aitchison Seedking direct drills are the professionals choice with the lowest
maintenance requirements and unrivalled trash clearance ability.
