Press wheels: a unique design
The narrow press wheels on the ESPRO seed drill is the key to increase the profitability of your business. Thanks to its special design, it keeps soil build up in front of the packer wheels to a minimum. By doing this, the power requirement and fuel consumption stays remarkably low, while ensuring a higher work output. The 900mm diameter of the packer wheels reduces rolling resistance and therefore the power required to pull the machine compared to smaller wheels.At the same time the wheels are rather narrow (210mm), leaving a 85mm gap between them for an excellent soil and residue flow. Their narrow width has another important effect: It leaves a larger infiltration zone in-between the wheels and therefore efficiently avoids erosion.The packer wheels are offset 200mm front to rear, which eliminates the bulldozing effect, thereby reducing the power requirement and making the drill easier to pull. the reduced accumulation in-front of the wheels also prevents the drill from bouncing, thus ensuring a uniform seed delivery and placement.
