GIGANTE Pressure

PNEUMATIC SEED DRILL FOR DIRECT SEEDING OF CEREALS (cereals-colza) 
HYDRAULIC CLOSING FRAME 
TRANSPORT WIDTH m. 3,00 

The GIGANTE model has a great operational capacity and therefore high productivity levels combined with a folding frame for easy transport on road. High autonomy, down time reduced to a minimum, along with a precise distribution bring efficiency to top levels.

Features

Rubber gauge wheel

The rubber gauge wheel systems is for the farmer who like to make adjustments to the seed depth often.  We can do this with a pin adjustment on the side of the unit.  The rubber gauge wheel system is not as suitable as the cast iron unit in very wet heavy soil type conditions.

Seed depth control

Thanks to the seeding depth control made of cast steel you will have no problem maintaining a constant depth even in the harshest conditions. The depth limiter is made of a hard cast steel thus helping with the penetration of the disc while making sure that your seed depth is uniform producing an even emergence. Due to weight of the unit we have no problem working well in rocky conditions.  Even wet conditions are not a problem with our tungsten carbide scrapers to keep the heavy soil away from the openers and limiters.

Furrow closing system

The closure of the narrow furrow is obtained by a tapered wheel mounted on an arm independent of the unit itself.  This allows for the wheel to move independently of the unit,  running beside the furrow so that there will not be to much compaction over the furrow.  The closing system works very well in rocky conditions.

STRENGTHS OF GASPARDO SEED DISTRIBUTOR

Our cast two point hitch allows for easy hookup and great versatility in the field because of the multiple pivot points.
