SN-1-145 sowing element for single line sowing, featuring equalizer supported by two rubber press wheels, disc coulter (other options available on request).
Inside the seeding unit the disc turns in the opposite direction of the travel. This direction of rotation minimizes “bounce” of the seeds leading to much more accurate placement.
A Norton gear system provides simple and fast gear change to vary seed spacing. A 10+10 gearbox is standard.
All sowing units are equipped with dual singulators to ensure accurate singulation and with 4 sprockets for the rotation of the disc.
Agricola Italiana seed drills have separate aspiration and compression system. A separate compressor is used to keep the seed holes in the discs clear, rather than relying on the exhaust of the suction fan. This ensures that only dry and clean air, at the correct pressure is used. This is particularly important with small seeds, especially if they are dressed or dusty.
