Features and Benefits
Developed back in 1976, the Xact range has stood the test of time, but are also state-of-the-art and attuned to modern fodder grower needs. Six- and eight-row, disc-opener planters are available. Three-point linkage mounted and PTO driven, they have a hydraulically-controlled fan on the air vacuum seeder. Each row is independent, with its own seed box and spring, meaning they follow uneven contours, although, obviously, a well-prepared seed bed is going to get you a better result. Downward pressure is adjustable with three different tensions on the disc-openers, to penetrate even the type of compacted soil you, usually, wouldn’t hold out much hope for. Spacing is variable between 450 and 750 mm, and there’s an optional fertiliser box to further boost yield. Calibration is quick and easy, and the ROI is almost as fast! The inter-row cultivator reduces the need for costly and complicated spray programmes, and is easier on the crop, the soil, and the conscience.
