Depth Adjustment

Only seed depth and disc settings have to be performed manually outside from the tractor cab. Depth adjustment is made by turning the screw by hand or with a ratchet. Every half turn, the user can precisely adjust the height between the press wheels and the blade + disc assembly, therefore optimizing seeding depth.

 

Seeding depth can be adjusted individually on each opener. This enables new possibilities like seeding at different depth on different openers. Drilling combination like big seed / small seed, drilling 1 row out 2, 1 row out of 3 can thus be made easily.

 

Opener cut resised

Every opener is mounted with its own hydraulic cylinder, and can apply up to 500kg downforce to the soil. The residual force under the press wheel essentially depends on drilling conditions, residue cover and soil structure.
From the cab, the user can choose between two operating mode :

In Manual, the user directly adjusts the pressure, using the NOVAG joystick installed in the cab, or the monitor. This way, the hydraulics and the opener cylinders are set at a constant pressure.

In Automatic mode, the user sets up the force under the press wheels on the monitor, and the Intelliforce system will control the hydraulic pressure in the cylinder to maintain this force constant, depending on the soil resistance, the speed of the tractor…

Blades

Blades of different length can be mounted on a single opener. This setting creates many possibilities in terms of fertilizer banding, associated crops, or cover crops.

Discs
The disc can be mounted at 3 different positions (holes), at different height. This setting is often used to compensate disc wear and improve its motricity.
