Airseeders and commodity carts have been used by farmers for many years.
The technology up until today has been for wide, high output cultivator bar type machines with limited seeding precision. Väderstad and Seed Hawk have developed a new concept of airseeder which gives outstanding accuracy of seed and fertiliser placement even on the widest of implements.
Seed Hawk has 25 cm row spacing as standard to enable a good clearance for trash and straw residues. The wider row distance also means less soil disturbance which helps to preserve soil moisture. In regions suitable for No Till establishment the wider row spacing shows the same yield as conventional seeding.
Low draught requirement
The ultra-narrow knives give a superior seed placement with low horsepower requirement. Recommended tractor sizes are 290 – 340 hp for a 12 m drill and 430 – 500 hp for an 18 m.
Saves time and money
No till is the most extensive way to establish a new crop with huge potential to save time and cost. The Seed Hawk concept combines the capacity of wide implements with the high precision seed placement provided by the fertiliser and seed coulter solution. The result is amazing uniform crops established at low cost.
Seed Hawk offers drills from 6 m working width up to impressive 24 m. A range of carts are available from 4,000 litres up to 21,000 litres.
Seed Hawk Bars – 45 Series
Seed Hawk has developed a new frame series that folds to 4.5 m transport width and 4.5 metre height (18.3 = 5.2 m height) – the 45 series. A unique double fold mechanism and telescopic air kit allow the 12.2, 15.2 and 18.3 m bars to fold down to just 4.5 m transport width. Great ability to follow ground contour, unrivalled seed depth precision and a gentle trip mechanism are strong key features of the Seed Hawk toolbars.
Seed Hawk Carts
The SH 14 cart has two tanks with a capacity of 8,400 litres and 5,600 litres. The SH 17.5 has an additional tank with a capacity of 3,500 litres. The SH 21 cart has three tanks with a capacity of 10,500 litres, 3,500 litres and 7,000 litres. All models can be used in either a tow between or tow behind position.
Manoeuvrable 6 and 8 m models
The Seed Hawk 600 and 800 have integrated hopper and offer an easy to handle alternative for the small and medium size farms. The hopper holds 4,000 litres.
