DYNAMIC Direct Drill

The Virkar Dynamic drill is available in 4.5/5/6 meter working widths with bigger sizes in development for the future. The drill is semi mounted and has a hopper capacity of 5300lts. The drill comes on flotation tyres 550/45 22.5 which ensures compaction in field is kept to a minimum. 

Sowing rate from 2 to 380 kg/ha is achievable from one feed roller. Row width is dependent on customers preference and can be either 19cm or 25 cm row. The modular coulter design consists of a turbo cutting disc, which is on a hydraulically pressured arm which insures the turbo disc can cut a clean slot in the soil and create a micro tilth in front of the following seeding tine. Working independently from the turbo disc is a low disturbance seeding tine that not only places the seed at a very even depth, but because of its design the seeding tine cleans the slot of any trash leaving only clean soil in the slot, this means great seed to soil contact. Following the seeding tine is a v shaped double press wheel which closes the slot. The drilling coulters work off a big accumulator all the coulters are linked together, this allows for very effective ground contour following with every coulter being able to travel up to 35 cm meaning even seed depth is achieved even in the most uneven terrain. Having the drill working off this accumulator means it is easy to change the pressure of the coulters, by a control box in the cab a dial is turned and from that more pressure is applied to the coulters which means even the hardest of ground is no problem to drill into. Each coulter can apply 0/280kg of pressure to the ground. The seed depth is easily adjusted, the v shaped double press wheels are adjusted by a simple pull out pin the wheels can then be lifted, up or down and then the pin placed back meaning easy change of the depth.

The seed hopper has the option of splitting the tank 65% seed 35% fert running through 2 metering systems. In addition, liquid Fert can be specified as option.

Free Drive the steering axle provides new freedom sowing on a curved path, the system frees up tension in the coulters arms meaning less stress is put on components leading to longer working life.

Long life bushings for low maintenance, all sealed bearings on discs and press wheels so easy to maintain.

Easy Vario controls in a simple way an advanced hydraulic system to lift lower and adjust coulter pressure from control box in the cab meaning adjustments can be made easily on the move without need to stop meaning a more productive working day.

The drill comes ISOBUS ready and the seeding part can run through the tractors terminal and be set up to undertake variable rate seeding if necessary.

The drill is very easy to pull because of its low disturbance meaning a 6-meter drill can be pulled by 180hp the drill requires 4 spools if fitted with hydraulic drive for fan or 3 spools if drill is fitted with PTO pump to run the fan. The drill comes standard with Led work lights and tank lights a decent size toolbox calibration bag and scales.
