Making quick, precise depth adjustments on the Precision Shank Drill is easy. Simply add or remove stop collars on the hydraulic cylinders of the frame wheels to decrease or increase seeding depth in quarter-inch increments. This convenient feature saves time by eliminating the need to adjust each opener independently. It also helps ensure operators dial in the ideal seeding depth, rather than settling for a depth that is "good enough."
Seeding depth is gauged by the wide packer tires, which offer excellent ground following and consistent depth. Plus, each row unit is equipped with a hydraulic cylinder that provides constant down pressure throughout the entire range of cylinder travel. Pressure on the cylinders is controlled by the operator on the go.
An optional rippled coulter on the Precision Shank Drill easily cuts through tough residue conditions and fractures soil ahead of the opener to keep residue flowing smoothly through the drill, rather than bunching and leaving piles of residue all over the field.
By adjusting the closing discs, packer wheel angle and hydraulic down pressure, the Precision Shank Drill gives you full control over the field finish, whether you desire a flat surface or furrows.
The Precision Shank Drill is built with robust components to withstand the stress of higher speeds and demanding seeding conditions. Additionally, components are designed for minimal maintenance, with the packer wheel and coulter bearing only requiring seasonal greasing.
Optional blockage monitors detect relative flow of seed and/or fertilizer to each opener. This means the technology not only shows you whether or not material is flowing, but it also alerts you if the flow is less than your target rate.
What people say about Concord Seeding equipment
“The Concord has minimal moving parts. It’s basically a trouble-free machine. We have a 50-foot drill that we can run 8 or 9 mph. I’ve seeded 500 acres of soybeans in a day.”
"It's nice to have machinery where you're not having to fix or maintain every morning. You just get in the tractor and take off."
“It’s the best drill I’ve ever been around as far as seed placement and uniformity without disturbing the soil so much. Seed to soil contact is really good with this machine.”
