Precise seed positioning
Placed on two rows with a clearance of 34 cm, they offer quality work even in the presence of large quantities of plant residues and ensure regular seeding depth. The profiled Suffolk coulters accurately guide the seeds in the furrow, even in stony conditions. The ground pressure is adjustable up to a maximum of 22 kg per coulter and the anti-blockage flap prevents blockages when the drill is lowered.
Double discs: versatility
Cultivation methods evolve more and more towards minimum tillage methods. Disc coulters are versatile: for seeding in plant residues or on ploughed land, no problem, their performance stand out! With a ground pressure of up to 35 kg, the discs are not affected by soil unevenness and allow a high seeding speed, even in difficult terrain. A good choice for farmers who want to reduce tilled areas without investing in a seed drill specialized in min-till seeding. Disc seed drills with small diameter press wheels are an asset for germination. They contribute to a constant seeding depth in highly heterogeneous terrain. In wet and sticky situations, the wheels can be retracted or can be removed. Disassembly is done without tools.
Precise positioning and easy settings
The COMBILINER INTEGRA has two means of controlling the seeding depth: by a low stop for a maximum depth adjustment on all rows, if not by modulation of the ground pressure (spring tension). This means a higher groundspeed with good ground pressure without deviating from the desired seeding depth. The precise positioning of the seed is ensured, even in heavy or irregular soils. Simple and centralised at the rear of the machine, these settings are comfortable and quickly executed thanks to a crank. An indexing allows viewing the settings and thus facilitates machine use. The covering harrow with trailing universal tines, mounted on a parallelogram, is adjustable in pressure and angle. In this way, the harrow adapts to each type of soil and to the volume of residues in order to ensure a perfect seedbed finish. The ground pressure is based on the type of soil encountered. An indexing indicates the pressure level.
Precise and regular seed application rate
Perfectly controlled HELICA distribution
The application rate is adjusted by a single micrometric screw opening the flutings. HELICA's helical volumetric fluting distribution answers your questions regarding application rate accuracy and evenness. This volumetric system is field-proven and will satisfy all your requirements, even when you sow on sloping or hilly terrain. This distribution system is accurate and reliable, throughout a day of seeding. Application rate by volumetric from 1.5 to 450 kg/ha (the latter application rate is only valid for peas and beans with a distance of 12.5 cm) irrespective of the terrain, the hopper filling level or the groundspeed. The flutings are insensitive to vibrations, they respect the seeds of all sizes and shapes. For fine seed, the machine incorporates a specific "small seed" fluting. To adapt to the possible sprayer widths, the seed drill is pre-equipped with 10 distribution units (5 per side) which can be disengaged to enable many tramline configurations.
Fast distribution speed adjustment
The oil-bath gearbox of the INTEGRA seed drill shows exceptional robustness and reliability without requiring maintenance. With 6 speeds indexed, it is easily adjustable by a simple lever.
The simplest calibration and emptying of the market!
Flow control is done directly. A lever tilts the coulter bar downwards and frees a large space to place the calibration trough The seeds fall directly into the tray during calibration or emptying of the residual seed which can be done by half or over the entire seed drill width. The withdrawal of the tray is also simply done. With the MDC metering modulation, the operator can adjust the application rate during work by 5%, 10% or 15% and on a range of +/-60%. It is fully compatible with the HECTOR 3000 control box.
A seed drill independent from the power harrow
A beneficial structure
Opt for a more regular seeding with COMBILINER INTEGRA integrated mechanical seed drills: the coulter bar is guided by the roller for improved ground following. The power harrow is free to shift upwards in case of obstacles (stony conditions) for increased protection. The vibrations of the harrow does not disturb the seed drill to ensure its resistance to wear. Adjustment changes on the tillage tool do not affect those of the coulter bar. The tillage tool and seed drill can be uncoupled in a few minutes. A hydraulic top link for raising the seeding unit is available as optional equipment. It provides additional advantages: in transport position, it transfers the weight back to the tractor to increase the combination's stability on roads and the seed drill rests on 4 support points that effectively support the chassis during transport. You also have the opportunity to work temporarily with the harrow, while the seeder is raised and stopped.
With the hopper of the COMBILINER INTEGRA seed drill, you will find an ideal ally to reach high work output. The capacity of 600 to 800 l for models of 3.00 and 4.00 m respectively can be extended up to 1200 l with an extension Its large capacity greatly reduces the downtime of reloads. The hopper offers an opening of 70 cm wide thanks to its large dimensions and the deflector formed by the lid. Loading is facilitated, especially by big-bags and bucket. The V-hopper bottom promotes the descent of the seeds, reduces the residual dose and ensures regular feeding of the distributions.
Numerous optional equipment available on the versatile mechanical seeding combination COMBILINER INTEGRA
Small and convenient assistant
Easy to use and of small dimension, this control box assists the user during work. HECTOR 3000 manages various functions: daily and total hectare counter; monitoring and alarms of distribution non-rotation, low seed level (by 1 or 2 sensors), marker lowering; pre /post-emergence symmetrical or asymmetrical tramlining.
Foldable pre-emergence markers
The pre-emergence markers are automatically monitored by the HECTOR 3000. Avaialble as optional equipment, they can be folded when not required.
Precise in-field positioning
For precise marking in the field, the side markers are equipped with 41 cm diameter discs. They can be attached to the seed drill or to the power harrow. Thanks to their vertical folding, they are not bulky during headland turns.
