Hydraulic cylinders provide down pressure from the toolbar. The pressure is constant throughout the entire range of cylinder travel and is controlled by the operator on the go. A display on the down pressure control box allows the operator to monitor down force on the toolbars.
Making quick, precise depth adjustments on the Disc Drill SD is easy. Simply add or remove stop collars on the hydraulic cylinders of the frame wheels to decrease or increase seeding depth in quarter-inch increments. This convenient feature saves time by eliminating the need to adjust each opener independently. It also helps ensure operators dial in the ideal seeding depth, rather than settling for a depth that is "good enough."
Unlike competitive disc drills, which simply cut a slot in the ground, Concord's disc openers are designed to move more soil when creating a furrow. This results in a warmer, blacker seedbed for improved seed-to-soil contact versus other systems that tend to leave a lot of residue in the seedbed.
The wide packer tires are not only ideal for maintaining consistent seeding depth, but they are also excellent at re-leveling and firming the seedbed as the drill travels.
Optional blockage monitors detect relative flow of seed and/or fertilizer to each opener. This means the technology not only shows you whether or not material is flowing, but it also alerts you if the flow is less than your target rate.
What people say about Concord Seeding equipment
"Our planting season window is so short you have to be setup with equipment like this so when the conditions are right you can plant."
“The Concord has minimal moving parts. It’s basically a trouble-free machine. We have a 50-foot drill that we can run 8 or 9 mph. I’ve seeded 500 acres of soybeans in a day.”
“We’re able to dial in down pressure right from the cab based on field conditions. Based on how we see the drill reacting, we can modify pressure from the cab very easily to get the best seedbed possible.”
