Spirit seed drills

High precision – perfect emergence

The pneumatic seed drill Spirit carries out levelling, seedbed preparation, reconsolidation, seeding and pressing in one pass. It is known to provide impressive precision at high working speeds on the field. Thanks to the individual row depth control, Spirit always places the seed at the intended seeding depth. You benefit from an even emergence over the entire field.

High precision seed coulters

To ensure a firm seedbed, large packer wheels consolidate the soil prior to seed placement. Each individual seed coulter has a wide coulter press wheel. This allows the seed coulters to respond to any irregularities or soil variations on the field, thereby ensuring the working depth is constantly maintained. The generous diameter of the coulter press wheel, further results in a smooth ride with minimal impacts from vibrations, thereby increasing precision at high speed. 

Impressive seed placement

To achieve the perfect seed placement in lighter soils or at shallow drilling, Spirit is equipped with double seed discs.

The large diameter seed discs offer a smooth ride, whilst the robust V-55 Swedish steel provides an extremely long working life.

To adapt to varying soil conditions, the coulter pressure can be altered from the cab on the move.

Seed tube positioning

Seed is released in front of the seed discs centre, this enables the seed to benefit from the rotational movement of the disc.

The rotation of the seed disc helps place the seed in the bottom of the seed slot, enabling immediate access to moisture. This system does not require a seed firmer which lowers wearing part costs. 

125mm row spacing for maximum yield

A rapid and even emergence provides the crop with considerably higher competitiveness against weeds, this is especially important as more herbicide resistant weeds are on the increase. Research show that 125mm row spacing result in 20% less weeds than 150mm. A narrow row spacing allows for a larger seed spacing, thereby lowering the fungi pressure. The rapid and even emergence leads to lower evaporation, at a time when the access to moisture is most crucial.
