Cell Wheel Drills
With regular shaped or pelleted seed, the Stanhay cell wheel metering unit is unmatched and with the correct setup offers near perfect single line performance. With few moving parts running costs are low and maintenance simple. Originally developed for pelleted Sugar Beet in the UK the system is just as effective with a range of other pelleted seeds such as lettuce.

How it works
Seed falls from the hopper into a selection chamber which is positioned vertically above the cell wheel, here the seeds fill the individual cells while the cell wheel and deflector wheels rotate anticlockwise. The deflector wheel gently rolls excess seed away from the wheel to ensure only one seed per cell. The seed ejection point is at the bottom of the unit close to the ground where a special ejector plate ensures precise consistent ejection of seed to maintain accurate seed spacing.
The metering unit is available in one chassis with two different drive options, mechanical and electric drive.
