Product Description

High Productivity

With a working width of 9m, folding down to 3m for transport, the Spartan 907 Seeder offers a flexible, dependable and highly efficient solution to your drilling needs.

The Spartan 907 is equipped with two 3500-liter hoppers capable of metering seed or granular fertilizer in either hopper without modification. Seed and fertilizer are mixed in the row. An infinite ratio gearbox is standard, while an optional variable rate drive enables metering rates to be changed from the tractor cab. A 15.25 cm filling auger comes optional and can be used to fill and empty the hoppers.

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 and a precision planter-style seed tube guides the seed to the bottom of the furrow, eliminating seed bounce. An 18-position t-handle controls the depth adjustment up to 9 cm deep and a trailing press wheel closes the seed trench. The Great Plains "science of seeding" philosophy designs the Spartan product around the objective of accurately calibrating and metering seeds and fertilizer and then placing them precisely at the desired depth.

 Optional front coulters prepare a 3-5 cm strip of finely cultivated soil and can be set to 250 kg of pressure to enable the operator to direct seed if the need arises.

Product Features

TRAM LINE ACTUATORS

HIGH CAPACITY HOPPERS

Two 3,500 liter hoppers, wide walkboards, and ladders combine to make an air drill that keeps you in the field.
