The equalising hydraulic system is unique to Grass Technology's seeder. The seeds will always be planted at a consistent depth, as the seeder follows the contours of the land, with each foot rising and falling over any lumps or bumps, and the Stranex tails nudging the seeds into the soil to maximise soil contact.
This seeder is suitable for a large variety of grasses, as well as crops e.g. rapeseed, redstart, kale, etc.
The Pro-Drill 2500 performs on all land types, and is particularly effective on land where conventional seeders falter, e.g. rough or stony ground, hard or hilly ground, or even land with sticky clay. The blades, hydraulic system and water ballast all contribute towards exceptional performance even in difficult conditions.
The Pro-Drill 2500 has 15 blades which cut a straight slot into the ground, widening the slot as it does so to enable the seed to fall into place. Each blade is made from Hardox and can be turned 4 times, ensuring a long life and efficient performance.
Each slot cut by the blades is spaced 70mm apart, ensuring seeds are planted closer together than other seeders, meaning only one pass of a field is necessary for seeding.
The seeder can be adjusted, closing off some of the seed outlets, to enable wider spacing if desired.
The Pro-Drill seeder is only available at 2.5m wide. Even on hilly or rough ground, a 100HP tractor will manage well with this machine.
The blades, in conjunction with the hydraulic system, ensures an even and consistent slot depth. Each seed will be planted at the optimum depth of 12mm and the Stranex tails will nudge the seeds into the ground, allowing the preferred seed/soil contact.
