Brand New Spyder Frame
The most advanced frame design and the latest disk opener technology. The agricultural world has been waiting for a long time for this.
Our patented, breakthrough, folding technology offers one of the narrowest transport widths on the market, for easier transportation and added safety.
- Patented clam shell linkage arm technology ensures close row spacing when seeding but lift and open up for ease of adjustments and serviceability.
- Linkage design allows for seeding on both ranks or lift the front rank out of the soil and just seed on the back rank.
- Hydraulic lift out for inter-row fertilizer coulters when not required.
- The most floatation of any disc drill on the market with lots of high floatation frame wheels.
- Massive steel tubing construction to ensure years of trouble-free durability.
- Patented undercut disk opener design virtually eliminates straw pinning while other disk designs struggle with good soil to seed contact.
- Spring-loaded parallel linkage arms ensure that the disc openers stay in the ground like they are supposed to.
- One of the easiest disc drills to pull on the market. Some competitor single disk drills require up to three times the fuel to pull. The Spyder makes fuel costs easier on your pocketbook.
This picture shows how the frame folds up in transport. It folds up inverted. What does this gain? Narrower transport widths. Our 66′ and 60′ frames are no wider than the duals on the air seeder cart: 18′ wide. Our 76′ does have to be wider due to its size but even with this, we shaved off 2′ in width compared to our current design of the Gen II. Our 40′ 3-plex frames are 14′ 4″ wide.
In this video, you will see how our opener linkage works. In the field, the two row of disks work very close together. For service and setting, they open up to leave room to adjust or service. This is definitely a game changer. The front row will be able to be locked up if you only want to use the back row for seeding, for example, seeding soya beans. Row spacings offered are from 7 1/2″ to 12″. Mid row banders are also available on its own lift system so they can be out of the ground if not required. For example, seeding pulses.
