New: Dartmoor Combi single disc seeder

14 August 2023

Evers Agro introduces a Combi single disc seeder for seeding new crops and overseeding grassland. The Dartmoor is an innovative machine and is characterised by its versatility. A unique and specially developed pressure system enables precise seeding under all conditions. The Dartmoor is a perfect seeder for a progressive farmer and ideally suited to the greening challenges for future-proof agriculture!

Important for good seed germination is precise deposition and contact with the soil and availability of moisture, light and oxygen. The Dartmoor is the ideal machine for this and is equipped with sharp solid cutting discs with a diameter of 41.5 centimetres. Due to their tapered shape and large diameter, these discs encounter relatively little resistance, they cut and keep rotating under all conditions. This principle has been patented with patent number 1044189.

Unique and versatile

In addition to the patent for overseeding with the discs, a unique pressure system has been developed for the Dartmoor. This hydraulic pressure system provides weight transfer from the tractor to the machine. The system transfers extra weight from the tractor to the machine, resulting in a total disc pressure of over 125 kilograms per disc. As a result, the Dartmoor always makes a good slit in hard/uncultivated soils to deposit the seed. In softer/pre-cultivated soils, the pressure system is unnecessary. The seeding depth is easily adjustable from 5 mm using a spindle adjustment and shims.

The easy-to-adjust pressure system makes the Dartmoor ideal for seeding new crops on arable land and for overseeding grassland.

Exact seeding technique

The Dartmoor features a pneumatic seeder. Precise seed distribution is done via distribution heads. The combi seeder has 32 cutting discs and outlets. This results in a seeding distance of 8.9 cm at a working width of 285 cm and a seeding distance of 9.4 cm at a working width of 300 centimetres.

Each seed outlet has its own cutting disc with a maintenance-free bearing. The seed outlet is stably positioned for reliable deposition. The cutting discs are suspended in rubber spring elements for perfect adaptation to ground contours. An important advantage is that the elements are optimally positioned for clog-free operation, on pre-cultivated land or through crop residues.

Optionally, the Dartmoor can be equipped with a second pneumatic seeder. This can be used to sow an additional crop widely, in front of the Pictor roller. With this second seeder, it is possible to sow at two different depths, for an even emergence of grass combined with herbs and clovers.

The Pictor roller ensures a good reconsolidation of the seed with the soil and closes the slit, which is important for good, fast and even emergence. The rounded tips also activate erosion of the existing sward. A unique feature of the Pictor roller is its self-cleaning effect.
