Versatility in configurations and spacing
The PPK precision seed drill was developed to meet the needs of small farmers, offering a wide range of configurations, starting with the tractor hitch system. The mounted version, for example, is coupled to the tractor’s three-point hitch (hydraulic lift). In this configuration, the wheels have mechanical height adjustment. In the trailed version, the tractor is coupled to the precision seed drill drawbar, which is levelled through an adjustment spindle, and the wheels feature hydraulic drive. The frame also allows for various spacing settings, ensuring that the distance between planting units is adjusted quickly and easily.
Ergonomic drive setting
Easy access gearboxes
The wheels of the PPK are independent, with the possibility of moving along the frame without pre-set positions. A complete gearbox is attached to the wheelset structure, with gear shifting that allows a variety of combinations for the right adjustment of fertilizer and seed application rates. The combined wheelset and gearbox structure makes it possible to change the positioning of the assembly according to the spacing and number of rows. The movement occurs along the whole assembly, with no concern regarding the alignment of gears and chains. Regardless of the position along the frame, gearboxes are accessed from the rear of the machine, with total comfort and safety, and the drive is adjusted without the need for tools.
Planting efficiency and precision
S Planter depth gauge wheel and press wheel
The seed units of the PPK precision seed drill have options to limit planting depth and to close the furrow in order to meet any planting condition and soil type, without the need for tools for adjustment, offering full ergonomics and safety. The depth gauge wheel, with independent rocker arm or fixed axle type flotation, ensures homogeneous seed depth in any condition. The press wheel of the PPK mechanical precision seed drills, features settings allowing efficient work when closing the furrow and compacting soil over the seeds. In addition, both systems (S Planter press wheel and depth gauge wheel) can be configured with three different spacing options, from narrow for more clayey soils to wide for sandy soils.
The row marker is robust, enabling a safer and more precise operation, avoiding overlapping rows and trajectory errors.
