The pneumatic seed drill Spirit 600-900S is available in 20', 26' or 30' (6, 8 or 9 metre) working widths. It is a universal seed drill for high capacity drilling in conventional and minimum tillage. Spirit 600-900S is equipped with innovative solutions that increases the precision and simplifies the operations at the farm.
The pneumatic seed drill Spirit carries out levelling, seedbed preparation, reconsolidation, seeding and pressing in one pass. It is known to provide impressive precision at high working speeds on the field. Thanks to the individual row depth control, Spirit always places the seed at the intended seeding depth. You benefit from an even emergence over the entire field.
Spirit 600-900S is equipped with the high precision metering system Fenix II that provides a constant and reliable seed metering. The strong motor permits high seed rates at high speed.
Additionally, the integrated fan runs at low speed, resulting in minimized fuel consumption and quiet operation. Its high location reduces the dust intake, thereby increasing drilling accuracy.
To minimise downtime in the field, Spirit has a high capacity 3900 litre seed hopper. The hopper is very easy to fill due to its large opening with a roll-up cover operated from the ground.
With two platforms and an open machine design, you benefit from good access to all components throughout the machine.
To ensure an even seed depth also in hilly terrain and at varying soil types, Spirit 600-900S is equipped with an active seed coulter pressure.
Sensors in the hydraulic system immediately registers if Spirit is located on a crest or a trough. If so, automatic valves directly compensates for an increased or decreased pressure. Thereby the seed coulter pressure is kept at a constant pre-set value, irrespective of which working angle the seed coulters are in, relative to the rest of the machine.
The result is an impressive seed placement and an even emergence over the entire field.
The distributor heads are placed in a high position. This keeps the seed hoses at the perfect angle even in hilly terrain, this ensures a perfect distribution over the entire working width.
When lifting or lowering the seed drill at the headland, the automatic sequence control lifts or lowers the working zones one by one. When entering the field the system makes sure the front tool is lowered into the soil before the seed coulters and the following harrow.
By optimising this automatic lifting and lowering sequence, the seeding accuracy is enhanced at the headlands.
This system makes it possible to drill the headland first, without disrupting the result when drilling the rest of the field.
The seed is metered out via two distributor heads, this enables the driver to conduct half machine shut-off directly from the driver seat, optimising tramlining without double seeding.
On irregular fields, this section shut-off offers great opportunities for extra savings.
Farmers who regularly use half machine shut-off appreciate the fact that they can save up to 5 % seed and fertiliser, at the same time allowing the crop the best start possible.
Väderstad SeedEye is a unique system for seed counting and seed monitoring. With SeedEye farmers can easily set the number of seeds per square metre, without the need for calibration. SeedEye ensures excellent seeding results with full control.
Spirit is equipped with the iPad-based control system Väderstad E-Control.
In addition to an extensive control and monitoring of the seeding process, the control system offers the possibility to adjust the working depth of the front tool, the seed coulters as well as the hydraulic following harrow, while driving on the field.
User-friendliness, cost-effectiveness and an easy to update system are some of the major advantages.
By equipping Spirit 600-900S with the mountable small seeder BioDrill, a small seeded crop such as cover crops or ley, can be drilled together with the main crop.
The spreader plates distribute the seed evenly in front of the drill aggregates, where it is covered by the flow of soil around the seed discs and by the press wheel.
BioDrill provides an accurate seeding at the same time as saving passes on the field.
To ensure a firm seedbed prior to seed placement, large packer wheels consolidates the soil between the front tool and seed coulters. This offers great advantages in lighter soil, as well as in fields where the soil is loose as an effect of a deep cultivation or a cultivation with insufficient reconsolidation.
Spirit has 380mm large discs for high speed accuracy. The OffSet discs move the soil to the side and place the seed in the bottom of the seed furrow. The soil falls back behind the discs and covers the seed with fine soil. The seed coulter pressure is up to 80kg to ensure a good penetration. The unique TriForce rubber suspension gives a supreme ability to follow ground contour.
Each individual seed coulter has a wide coulter press wheel. This allows the seed coulters to respond to any irregularities or soil variations on the field, thereby ensuring the working depth is constantly maintained. The generous diameter of the coulter press wheel, further results in a smooth ride with minimal impacts from vibrations, thereby increasing precision at high speed.
The following harrow is positioned to run in-between the seed rows, so there is no risk of disturbing shallow-drilled seeds.The following harrow creates a loose evaporation barrier to preserve moisture and prevents capping after heavy rain.
