Design and Standard Features

Ground drive with easy calibration

FDD Seed Drill is a wise investment for farmers who value precise and efficient planting. This device comes with an advanced seed metering system that is ground-driven and easy to calibrate. Farmers can calibrate the metering system in just about 10 minutes using the instructions provided. The process is straightforward, and even novice farmers can perform it with ease.

Seed and Fertiliser Bins

The 3-meter model of the FDD Seed Drill comes with a 1080L seed bin capacity and a 700L fertiliser bin capacity. These bins are designed to provide accurate seed placement and dosage for seeds of all sizes.

Double Disc Openers

They are designed to cut a furrow in the soil where the seed can be deposited at the correct depth every time.

Adjustable press wheels

Adjustable press wheels have become an integral part of modern seed drills, and for good reason. These wheels excel at closing the furrow and pressing the soil firmly around the seed, resulting in increased seed-soil contact. This simple process dramatically improves the strike rate when compared to other seeding methods.

Spring Tine Covering Harrows

Spring tine Covering Harrows ensure that seeds are properly covered. Farmers rely on these harrows to push additional soil over the furrow, ensuring that the seed is well covered. This promotes optimal seed growth and protects young plants from harsh external factors.

Heavy Duty 3206 bearings on each disc

 One of its notable features is the heavy-duty 3206 bearings on each disc. These bearings ensure minimal maintenance requirements, which translates to less downtime and higher productivity.

Rubber shock absorber on every disc

One of the key features of the FDD Seed Drill by IRTEM is the presence of a rubber shock absorber on every disc. These shock absorbers protect the discs from impacts with rocks and other debris that may be present in the soil. This is especially important in Australian conditions, where rocky or uneven terrain can be a significant challenge for farmers.

Trailing

The FDD is designed as a trailed seed drill with a heavy-duty drawbar ensuring a secure connection to your tractor.

At FarmTech Machinery, we know you are the kind of farmer who wants to be efficient in the field and maximize seeding. To be that way, you need a seed drill that can directly drill on soft soil, is easy to calibrate, and can perform reliably.

The problem is that most drills are not precise enough, resulting in expensive overseeding or bare pots due to underseeding. Not to mention that many seed drills can’t penetrate the soil enough to give seeds the room needed for maximized growth.

We believe Australian farmers should have machinery that works efficiently and consistently.

We understand that Australian farmers seek highly efficient farming methods. That’s why we are bringing you The Irtem FDD Seed Drill series to help you produce your desired results!

Focused on reliability, these farming implements combine simple mechanisms and fewer parts to eliminate equipment downtime.

Here’s how it works: Its adjustable seed and fertilizer slot holds the components in place. Then, using its two powerful gearboxes, it sows the soil with seeds at consistent intervals.

Lastly, it presses and covers the seeds with adequate dirt for good soil-seed contact for the best chances of germination.

So get in touch with our agents now so you can stop wasting time with machine maintenance and start enjoying better sowing and larger crop yields.
