Product Description

Accurate Seed Placement

With a working width of 6m, folding down to 3m wide x 4m high for transport, the Spartan 607 offers a flexible, dependable and highly efficient solution to your seeding needs.

The Spartan 607 comes with either a single seed-only 5280-liter hopper or with two 2885-liter hoppers for seed/fertilizer applications. You can also specify a dual seed and liquid fertilizer option. An infinite ratio gearbox is standard, while an optional variable rate drive enables metering rates to be changed from the tractor cab.

The field-proven openers perform well in all soil types. 38cm x 4mm offset double disc blades ensure an accurate and well-formed seed slot with a precision planter-style seed tube that guides the seed to the bottom of the furrow, eliminating seed bounce. Optional front coulters prepare a 3-5 cm strip of finely cultivated soil and can be set to 250 kg of down pressure to enable direct seeding capability if the need arises.

In soft ground the cart and implement are carried by the two large cart tires and the 4 implement tires. In hard no-till conditions the weight of the cart can be hydraulically transferred to the center section and from the center section to the wings.

 

Product Features

SINGLE OR DOUBLE SHOOT

Choice of double shoot allows for a higher rate of seed and/or fertilizer to be delivered to the row without plugging.

REAR 'LIFT-ASSIST' TRANSPORT TIRES

Rear caster wheels help raise the seeder for transport. The weight of the drill is carried by the cart and the rear tires. In soft conditions the rear wheels will keep the drill from sinking. They can also be raised off the ground in working position.

HOPPER OPTIONS

The Spartan 607 is available with a range of hopper options for seed only and seed/fertilizer applications.

GROUND CONTOUR FOLLOWING

The Spartan openers can flex up 12.5cm and down 7.5cm. They are mounted to a unique frame. The wings of the frame can flex down as much as 10^0 and up over 15^0.

FRONT TO BACK FLOTATION

The 2-point parallel linkage connects the center frame to the cart. The upper linkage is controlled by an adjustable hydraulic cylinder which allows the machine to flex forward and back 15^0.

AIR DRILL METER

The 607 hopper comes standard with 4 outlets. The Spartan can seed rape as low as 1.2kg/ha, and wheat as high as 360kg/ha or granular fertilizer as high as 355kg/ha.
