Introducing… SD150S-TR SuperDrill
BROOKFIELD will continue to live by their brand ‘Farming the Future’ when they reveal the new SD150S-TR SuperDrill at Henty Field Days this year and compete for Machine of the Year.
The BROOKFIELD SuperDrill is your entire soil management in the one tool; a sowing rig with the added capabilities of a ChainBar. It is the only seeding machine of its kind in the world and allows you to look after your farm just like you would your vegetable garden. With reduced capital investment and maximum return on investment in mind, BROOKFIELD have developed the next generation seeder.
The SD150S-TR is fitted with twin row gangs of coulters at 250mm (10”) spacing as “standard”, or the option of 200mm (8”) or 300mm (12”) is available. Farmers are looking for many sowing options in one machine, and the SuperDrill brings the ability to interrow fertiliser in one gang and sow seed on the other at different depths. In addition to this, they can sow down both rows which effectively halves the sowing width. The wavy coulters in combination with the finishing chain gives superior soil disturbance and matchless seed soil contact.
A single hydraulic ram per gang is used to raise and lower the gang, as well as give adjustable hydraulic breakout pressure. The coulters have fine depth control from 0mm – 125mm (0”– 5”) for varying soil types, conditions & applications and are easily adjusted by a single pin and a series of holes. The stainless steel seed delivery tubes are height adjustable, designed for accurate seed placement at all depths, with individual spring loaded breakaway for harsh conditions and to allow huge trash residual.
This versatile seeding system combined with the proven capabilities of the ChainBar gives you the ability to plant most broadacre crops and fine seeds in all types of conditions, levelling the soil in front, seeding with the centre coulters and finishing with the rear chains.
Come along to the BROOKFIELD site 242-244 (Block F) or see the demonstration area daily at 10am and 2pm at Henty Field Days to see the SD150S-TR SuperDrill demonstrating and on display.
