This purpose built drill is designed to obtain the optimum results
from the combination of coulter, baker boot and coil tyne. The
frame provides the strength and the weight required for efficient
operation of the coulters in providing a slot in which the Baker
Boots can pass with minimal disturbance into existing pasture species.
The three (3) ranks of tynes which provide a tyne spacing on each
rank of 450mm gives operators an increased ability to sow into
residues from previous pasture or crops. Spring adjustable coulter
assemblies, featuring 340mm (13.38") coulters, are fitted
as a single row across the front of the drill. Sowing spacing is
The 8000 Series Drill is equipped with an infinitely variable
speed, oil bath gearbox, which allows the operator to select any
required rate between 1 kg/ha and 240 kg/ha.
The rate adjustment is a simple screw adjustable set-up. Rubber
gates allows the drill to also handle very small to large size
The metering mechanism uses a three row fluted roller for the
seed and a peg tooth roller for the fertilizer. The combined seed
and fertilizer box has been located to maintain a low profile for
the drill, with weight being carried close to the tractor to minimise
its effect on tractor stability when sowing in undulating country.
