How they work

The metering unit accurately places seed in the ground with the minimum of damage as every moving part is rubber covered. Seeds in the hopper fall past the choke (A) which regulates the quantity of seed in the chamber. The seed belt (B) is rotated clockwise by the drive wheel (C) while the repeller wheel (D) rotates anticlockwise to remove excess seed away from the holes in the belt only allowing the required amount to drop through at the end of the spring base (E). The seed drop into the bottom of the furrow is only 25mm minimising bounce or roll of the seeds. 

By fitting the right combination of coulter, choke, base and seed belt punched with the correct size and number of holes in single, double or triple lines you can plant a wide variety of seed types at any spacing or pattern. Swapping these items to switch between seed types can all be done without the need for tools.

The metering unit can be fitted into three different chassis types to suit a range of grower requirements.
