The 5000HD air drill lets you put seed
and fertiliser in the right place for faster,
more even germination. It delivers
accurate seed placement with on-row
packing. With a flexible frame and four
bar configuration, the 5000HD brings
precision to a wide variety of seeding
An 81 cm frame clearance lets heavy
residue flow through the drill. The
frame is carried by the press wheels at
the rear and the casters on the front,
so there are no wheels in the frame to
interfere with residue flow.
Optimum flotation is provided by dual
walking casters, which are standard
on the centre section of larger models
and optional on wing sections. There
are multiple press wheels and closing
options to match the drill to your specific
field conditions. Quick connects let you
hook up to seeding or banding tools
quickly and easily.
Rubber press wheels are available
in three, four and five-and-a-half inch
sizes. The flatter profile rides over a
wider area for less packing pressure,
just right for soils where too much
packing can be a problem. Three
inch rubber press wheels can be
used with knife openers or when
spreading seed up to three inches, or
for narrow double shoot applications.
Four inch rubber press wheels are
effective for many applications where
seed is spread up to four inches,
while five-and-a-half inch rubber
press wheels offer on-row packing in
wide seed spread applications.
Parallel linkage between the front
casters and the rear press wheels
keeps the frame level and maintains
seeding depth in changing conditions.
Unmatched depth accuracy is delivered
by a flexible frame which allows openers
to follow the contours of the ground.
