Airseeders

Swiss-made and very precise, (much like that country’s famous watches), Airseeders have been proven around New Zealand. Although designed for small seeds, some clients have used them for cereals and even peas. And they perform across any terrain, on machines up to 12 metres wide.

Features and Benefits

Now almost industry-standard, Airseeders make a conventional, 10 box, drill feel like you’re going back to horse and cart days. Highly engineered, the Airseeder is a very versatile fine seeder suited for metering every type of seed from swedes right through to grain, and at rates from 0.5kg/Ha up to 250 kg/Ha. Features include; a tapered hopper that eliminates bridging, and three dosing rollers (Grass (25kg +/-), Chow/Kale (4kg +/-), and Swedes/Turnips (1kg +/-). Hydraulic fans provide superior airflow and precise metering of seed, thanks to a radar groundspeed sensor, which helps makes calibration a breeze. One client has said they’ve got it sorted right down to the last cupful. In case you’re still not sure, there’s a clear seed site level in front of the hopper, so you can keep your eye on it. They’re available in four sizes, from a 200ltr to an 850ltr hopper, with customizable options. Just mount on rollers, power harrows, rotary spike rotor hoes, finger tine harrows, for a complete solution.

Testimonials

Graeme’s view

Graeme Burnett has a 300ha milking platform and 250ha run-off on flat to rolling country at Dacre on the Southland Plains. It’s fully self-contained, doing all its own cropping.
Graeme’s introduction to an Airseeder was through loaning one from his neighbour. “I had an older seeder and I was looking to upgrade.”
As a result of his informal trial, he took advantage of a FarmChief Southern Field Days deal to buy his own Airseeder and hasn’t looked back. “It’s reliable and it does everything we wanted.”
“Probably the best thing is how easy it is to calibrate. It’s one button. Five minutes, and I’ll be away. Anyone could work this.”
Graeme says he’s found the accuracy of the Airseeder is reliable down to a single cupful of seed.
He uses it for re-grassing, sowing 45ha of kale, plantain, summer turnips, and barley. “It works really well.”

Graeme's View

Graeme Burnett has a 300ha milking platform and 250ha run-off on flat to rolling country at Dacre on the Southland Plains between Invercargill and Edendale. It’s fully self-contained, doing all its own cropping. Graeme can’t speak highly enough of his FarmChief Airseeder and Rollmax Roller. “The accuracy of the seeder is unbelievable so far in everything I’ve done – right down to a cupful of seed. And it’s easy to calibrate.” He uses the seeder and roller for re-grassing, to sow 45ha of kale, plantain, summer turnips and barley. “It works really well.” Graeme says the rollers’ larger rings make a better job and are easier to pull. “The paddles at the front also make it less work and save time. I can do 5ha in an hour and it’s quick to do another pass. It’s certainly cut down our working time.” “We used to do the job with two rollers and it was hard to hook them up and also to transfer between farms. Now it’s easy.” He also had high praise for FarmChief’s service. “The back-up is brilliant, and the help in setting it up.”
