3 in 1 sowing system
multi-sow metering wheels
You can use VITASEM mounted seed drills on their own or in a combination with soil preparation implements.
The large wheels drive the metering shaft and reduce the pressure the machine exerts on the soil. Wheel scrapers are standard equipment.
The three-point linkage mounting with rugged mounting lugs and two top linkage positions enables rapid attachment to the tractor.
The headstock is linked to the seed hopper for added strength.
Additional equipment options
Proven spring-loaded track eradicators.
Compensator for lower linkages when using the seed drill on its own.
Track eradicator for seed drill wheels: angle and penetration of tine can be adjusted.
The tine can be folded away for transport.
The seed hopper is 6 cm lower on VITASEM CLASSIC seed drills.
Featuring a smaller seed hopper and semi automatic track markers – this is the lightweight version for smaller tractors.
The headstock is integrated into the seed hopper - centre wall and bulkhead plate for highest possible strength. A partition plate inside the hopper prevents the seed from wandering to one side when working across slopes. A seed level indicator is fitted as standard. LED Lighting for seed hopper is optional.
Rugged cover with rubber seal and gas-filled pressure cylinder
Two angles of opening with limit stop (85° or 103° for Big-Bags). The design of the seed hopper cover is unique in the farming business and has been adopted from the car industry. Instead of being welded, the cover plate is bonded to its frame so that no weld seams are visible.
The front and rear wall of the VITASEM seed hopper is so steep that all the seed flows to the metering system without the need for an agitator.
Rotating agitator shaft optional for the seed types which tend to bridge.
The oscillating agitator is very effective for seed material that is liable to segregate or does not flow well, such as grass seed.
Can be switched on and off manually in a single move.
The seed is drawn straight from underneath the feed funnel. This system ensures uniform seed flow, even when working up and down slopes.
Empties completely - no cleaning required
Wide, funnel-shaped outlets above each metering wheel ensure precision feed right down to the last grain, guaranteeing minimum residues and low minimum filling quantities. The wide opening angle of the bottom flap ensures that the metering area is completely emptied.
Side access on the left with folding step and handrail along seed hopper. The secure handrail is mounted directly on the seed hopper (not on the cover) for enhanced safety. Easy to fill thanks to plenty of space for seed sacks, the handrail on the seed hopper and the large hopper opening.
Their unique seed metering system is the trademark of VITASEM seed drills.
Two completely independent metering units are combined in the one seed housing. The metering wheels are located on the same metering shaft. The advantage is that the small seed and normal metering wheels no longer need to be individually locked.
Central adjustment of seed flaps. The spring-loaded, individually adjustable flaps can easily ride over foreign objects. The partition integrated into the seed flap prevents overflowing. The raised partition prevents grain overflow when changing from fine to normal metering, guaranteeing precision seed flow.
The metering wheels are suitable for all kinds of standard seed types.
The multi-sow system handles any seed with perfect metering accuracy - from 0.7 kg to 400 kg/ha.
Two individual metering wheels in each housing mean you can switch between normal seed and small seed metering within minutes.
The benefit of this innovative solution lies in the considerable improvement to seed output accuracy with small seeds and the ease in changing between seed sizes.
The main priorities of seed drill technology - reduction in wastage and optimised plant distribution density - have been well catered for.
1 morning cereals
2 midday rapeseed
3 evening poppy, etc.
Standard seed, small seed
A separate inlet slide for the small seed and normal seed range make it easy to switch between small seed and normal seed metering by pushing in or pulling out the slides. The system guarantees you can switch the metering in seconds. The optimised shape of the metering peg ensures the highest level of seed protection. Drilling rapeseed with low numbers of seed per square meter for optimum plant distribution density is ensured by the unique small seed metering wheel with its sawtooth shaped profile.
Precision sowing principle for poppy seed and clover, etc.
Unique on mechanical seed drills. To plant small seeds, the direction of rotation of the metering shaft is changed by simply switching the gears in the side drive unit. Small hollows on the rear of the sowing wheel pegs take only one grain and drop it overhead into the seed funnel. Extremely low seed density below 1 kg/ha.
Yield at harvest is influenced by precision seed placement. Regardless of whether you have light, heavy, dry or moist soil - optimum placement of the seed is critical for a satisfactory harvest.
Central coulter pressure adjustment with orientation scale
Even coulter pressure system
for the same pressure on front and rear coulters.
Perfect seed slot – precise depth control
Consistent row spacing
Coulter arms are secured using large clamp mounting on the coulter rails. Wide coulter arm mountings with replaceable bushes. Ability to ride over foreign bodies with up to 18 cm (7.09 inches) movement upwards. Coulter increments (positioning) of 30 cm (11.81 inches) ensures that large amounts of seed can pass through without blocking. Seed depth is controlled via the coulter pressure even without press wheels.
The PÖTTINGER disc coulter system for best seed germination
The scalloped disc coulters are suitable for mulch drilling and when there is a lot of organic matter. PÖTTINGERs diagonally tracking disc coulters open up the soil. The cast shoe, similar to a Suffolk coulter, removes wilted straw and crop residues from the seed placement area and forms a neat seed slot. This process guarantees even seed germination.
Different shapes of coulter with an inter coulter rail spacing (coulter offset) of 30 cm provide sufficient clearance even when operating in harvest trash.
Dished single-disc coulters, diameter 320 mm, with twin-race tapered bearings fitted with special seals. The rotating scrapers are adjustable and located to the rear so as to not reduce side clearance. Easily handles large clods.
The disc coulter is fitted with a long life hard wearing cast coulter point.
The Suffolk coulter is suitable for soil conditions where there are low amounts of organic matter. A protective flap closes each coulter automatically if the machine moves backwards. The spring-mounted coulter can fold back for reliable protection.
Wear-resistant cast coulter points.
Depth guidance rollers 250 x 40 mm available as option to limit depth and provide consolidation Straightforward pin-in-hole depth adjustment. Can be fitted and removed using hooks - no tools needed.
Uneven placement depth even in changeable soil.
Presses down to cover seed perfectly. Reliable germination even in dry conditions.
Large dimensioned inlet funnel for transition to seed tube (especially for spelt).
The creases in the inlet funnels provide maximum flexibility of the seed tubes to ensure perfect transport between the metering wheel and the coulter.
The telescopic seed tubes are stainless steel at the top and synthetic at the bottom to provide the lowest friction. This combination of materials greatly reduces the static charge in the seed grains.
The 10 mm harrow tines feature spiral springs for perfect ground tracking. Shocks are absorbed using maintenance-free rubber mountings. Damage is prevented if reversed inadvertently.
Central tine angle adjustment.
Easy to use adjustment functions for depth and pressure.
Outer tines can be retracted for road transport (3.0 and 4.0 m transport width).
No additional adapters required if press wheels are fitted
The tines are are arranged between the rows
Ridging is prevented by a pair of harrow tines at either end.
The curved tines work troublefree, even in fields with high amounts of organic matter
Designed for intensive levelling effect.
Offset angle tines sweep the whole surface level.
Seed grains are covered reliably, even when placed in a shallow slot. So is reached an uniform emergence at each seed
Consistent power transmission
The large diameter wheel has a large area of contact with the ground to minimise slippage. Hydraulic lift system is also available.
The step-less gear mechanism is submerged in high viscosity oil for smooth, uniform seed flow, even at low speed.
Quick, accurate adjustment by shifting the gear lever on the finely-calibrated scale on the side of the machine.
Crank rotations reduced during calibration (-50%)
All adjustments can be made from the left-hand side or back of the machine. Everything in one place saves time. The adjustment controls are easily accessible and positioned ergonomically.
Coulter pressure is adjusted centrally on the left hand side of the machine (using an orientation scale). Precise tension spring matching ensures the same pressure is applied to the front and rear coulters.
A coulter pressure of up to 25 kg is possible on the VITASEM
Hydraulic coulter pressure adjustment is also available.
