Agrow­plow re­leases a com­pact, ma­noeu­vrable vine­yard seeder

Farms & Farm Machinery - - Product News -

Agrow­plow has re­leased its new AD083 di­rect seed drill, de­signed es­pe­cially for the viti­cul­ture mar­ket.

Built on a 100x100x6mm RHS steel frame, the AD083 vine­yard seeder of­fers a sow­ing width of 1.75 me­tres, mak­ing it ma­noeu­vrable be­tween the rows.

Based out of Cen­tral West New South Wales, Agrow­plow says the AD083 vine­yard seeder’s key fea­ture is its brand new 401 dou­ble disc unit. It also has a break­out of 181kg and fea­tures both plain and notched discs that are off­set to en­sure high ac­cu­racy while manag­ing the root stub­ble and veg­e­ta­tion residue com­mon in viti­cul­ture.

An­other fea­ture is the Vine­yard Seeder’s 11 401 dou­ble disc units spread across two tool­bars with 159mm spac­ings.

“We’re re­ally happy with the de­sign of the AD083,” Agrow­plow’s Shan­non McNab says. “It’s a great com­pact ma­chine that doesn’t com­pro­mise on qual­ity.

“We’ve done a lot of test­ing on those 401 disc units and I think they’ll be a real as­set – we’re look­ing for­ward to get­ting feed­back from our deal­ers and cus­tomers, es­pe­cially in south­ern NSW and north­ern Vic­to­ria, where we think the ma­chine will see sig­nif­i­cant use.”

The Agrow­drill AD083 seeder is also avail­able in wider work­ing widths of 2.7m and can also be hooked up with an Agrow­plow 425 coil tine.

“Given that the dry con­di­tions we’ve seen this year are ex­pected to con­tinue through­out 2019, we think it’s im­por­tant to of­fer Aussie vignerons a re­li­able ma­chine that can han­dle di­rect drilling in hard and dry con­di­tions,” McNab adds.

“We’ve es­pe­cially seen an in­crease in drought-re­sis­tant crops like sorghum, so it’s im­por­tant that the Vine­yard Seeder, like the rest of the Agrow­drill range, can han­dle what­ever our farm­ers need it to sow.

“Be­sides, Mo­long is right in the mid­dle of world-class wine coun­try, so there’s plenty of po­ten­tial users right in our own back­yard.”
