This seed drill can be used to sow crops such as maize, beans, spinach, peas, sugar beet or onions, depending on the type of disc. As you see; a must-have for every farmer and farm labourer. Are you searching for a new precision seeder that is tailored to your needs? Contact us today to discover the possibilities.
Herriau Turbosem Satellite precision seeder: specifications
Herriau Satellite precision seeders are always delivered with a front hopper and mounted to a rotary harrow. This combination’s working width varies from 3 to 6 metres, with a minimum row spacing of 12.5 cm.
The Satellite precision seeder uses air to transport the seed. Each secondary hopper has a capacity of around 130 litres. This is fitted with a distributor head with an OLDS ELEVATORTM that can plant up to 12 rows. This secondary hopper is topped up by the front hopper automatically using sensors.
Machines with a working width of 4 metres or more fold up for road transport. The 4.6 and 5-metre versions can also be fitted with hydraulic folding wheels for transport to reduce the load to the tractor’s rear axle.
|Type||Working width (in m)||Frame||Capacity (in l)||Number of units||Minimum row spacing (in cm)|
2 x 130 (+ front hopper)
3 x 130 (+ front hopper)
|Satellite 6||6||4 x 130 (+ front hopper)||36 or 48|
Turbosem Satellite: the benchmark
Extremely consistent metering and uniform crop emergence have made the Turbosem Satellite a precision seeder benchmark. This is due to the machine’s unique, patented distributor head. Seed feeds to the Satellite seeder’s distributor head by means of an OLDS ELEVATORTM, eliminating one of the blowers for machines with three or more distributor heads.
The Satellite precision seeder forms a single unit with the front hopper, the blower is mounted to the front hopper for an optimal weight distribution. This seed drill features hydraulic pistons to the rear. That means there is no power take-off between the rotary harrow and seed drill. This allows the rotary harrow to be disengaged on the headland.
