Your benefits

A simple, economical and effective seed drill

The single-disc coulter is equipped with an inner Suffolk coulter in cast iron that cleans the disc. It also comes with a seeding nozzle that guides the seed into the furrow with great precision on the VENTA EC 300 integrated pneumatic seed drill.

The most precise single-disc coulter

Large-diameter discs (33 cm) positioned in very widely spaced rows (35 cm) mean that you can seed in plant residues. Regular seeding depth is ensured by 35 kg of coulter pressure

Precision and durability ensured

VENTA volumetric metering unit to drill all seed types with VENTA EC 300 integrated pneumatic seed drill

Drill all seed types with the VENTA metering unit

With only one adjustment required for seed change, the VENTA system distributes all seed types with precision, from 1 to 430 kg/ha. The slow-rotating volumetric metering unit respects the calibrated rate, even on slopes. There is less risk of blockage due to the wide fluting of the distribution head outlets. To change from work position to calibration, you simply shift a plate.

Optimum seed distribution and transport

The pneumatic transport and distribution system uses a powerful blower with a pre-filter. The system is simple with very few parts. It is highly reliable and maintenance is easy. There is no risk of clogging when working with large seeds or at high speeds.

Keep control of your machine

The HECTOR 3000 electronic control box with VENTA EC 300 integrated pneumatic seed drill.

Control your seed drill with the HECTOR 3000 electronic control box

With the HECTOR 3000 electronic control box you can:
  • monitor the blower, seed level and metering unit rotation,
  • keep count of daily hectares and total up,
  • tramline with 2 x 2 row shut-off

Easily accessible external distribution head

The distribution head being external makes hopper filling and cleaning easy. It is even accessible when the hopper is full, so you can close rows when it suits you. The metering unit is easy to access too, for checking flow rate and collecting residual seeds at the end of the job.

Fully opening hopper for easy filling

The fully opening hopper (1m x 1.60m) comes with a steel cover and seal. It is more robust than a system with tarpaulin and no dust can get into the hopper. Loading is easy by big-bag or bag. There is no obstruction to filling and it is easy to clean. It is even easy to access the distribution system with a full hopper.
