Equalizer

Min-Till Precision SL Planter

Rising input costs and fluctuating crop prices are driving farmers throughout the world to search for improved efficiency. Two fundamental and interrelated changes to mechanised crop production have evolved.

Economies of scale have been adopted and proven in agriculture as they have in industrial production. The use of wider implements coupled to larger tractors has been the worldwide trend to improve timeliness of field operations, greater output/hour and reduced total cost/ton.
In parallel with “going wider” has been the increased emphasis on Conservation Agriculture – No-till/Min-till which, while reducing costs will improve soil fertility, reduce wind and water erosion, improve soil carbon content and improve yields.
Two models of the Equalizer Min-Till Precision SL planter have been developed to offer the farmer the proven benefits of both wide frame and min-till agricultural systems.

Features of the SL Planter:

  • Number of rows range from 4 to 20 rows
  • 762mm or 914mm row spacing available
  • Separate tanks are available for different applications
  • Vertical folding system for transport
  • Floatation tyres to minimise soil compaction and rolling resistance
  • Double V coulter assembly for fertiliser placement
  • Four types of tine points/sheers are available
  • All frames are fitted 560mm coulter discs with SKF Agri Hub bearings
  • The vacuum system utilises the tubular machine frame to minimise external pipes and maintenance

Optional Equipment:

  • All units can be fitted with double row cleaners
  • PTO driven pump for fan hydraulics
  • Frame mounted Equalizer auger
  • Sprayer system with tank

SL Concept

The heart of the Equalizer single pass planter is the unit design of the tine operating under hydraulic pressure, min-tilling the soil to a maximum depth of 250mm, if needed, ahead of the planter row unit. The tine is fitted with a spade nose point to provide a degree of lateral soil shatter below the seed to optimise root growth.

The parallel linkage between the tine and the planter disc openers ensures that the set depth relationship between the seed and fertiliser remains constant.

Seed depth is controlled by the gauge wheels which may be offset from the disc openers if field conditions require.

Adjustment options provide the farmer with the optimum set up to suit his needs and prevailing soil conditions.

The tine may be offset from the seed row to allow side placement of fertiliser. Both depth and hydraulic down pressure of the tine are also adjustable.

  1. Quick depth setting: Easy 35mm increment adjustment on the tine
  2. Double fertiliser coulter option to replace tine
  3. Hydraulic trip control & downward force control on planter tine & unit
  4. Hydraulic tine trip action

 

Precision C Planter

The economics of planting wide with Theebo Tech multi-row, forward folding frame planters is well proven. The Wide Span concept is synonymous with significantly reduced crop establishment costs. Fitted with superb Equalizer Precision C row units, and newly updated with even better design features, farmers can rely on these planters to establish crop rows efficiently and effortlessly.


Features of the Precision C Planter:

  • Number of rows range from 6 to 24 rows
  • 762mm or 914mm row spacing available
  • Separate tanks are available for separate applications
  • The telescopic drawbar is the backbone of the Wide Span Conventional Planter
  • Floatation tyres to minimise soil compaction and rolling resistance
  • The vacuum system utilises the tubular machine frame to minimise external pipes and maintenance


Standard features of both the SL & Precision C Planters

  • Each unit has a Matermacc vacuum seed meter, which ensures accurate seed placement.
  • A centrally mounted gearbox that regulates the seed population.

Optional Equipment:

  • Can be fitted with heavy duty coulters and row cleaners
  • Frame mounted Equalizer auger

Precision C Concept

  • 560mm Fertiliser disc fitted with SKF Agri Hub bearing
  • Additional fertiliser coulter option. The fertiliser coulter is positioned behind the row cleaner and mounted as a complete unit.

 

Tine Seeder

  • Number of rows range from 13 to 66 rows
  • 275mm or 300mm row spacing available, as well as other spacing options for inter alia soya bean
  • Different fertiliser and seed tank options are available
  • Self cleaning metering system
  • Floatation tyres to minimise soil compaction and rolling resistance
  • The tine is capable of ripping up to 250mm deep without excessively disturbing the topsoil
  • Hydraulic trip tine action
  • Vertical folding system for transport
  • Two seeding-boot options
  • Frames can be fitted with hydraulic or coil spring coulters

Min-Till Tine Concept

The tine is equipped with a shear capable of ripping up to 250mm deep without disturbing the top soil excessively. The shear is designed to create an oxygen enriched environment for the seedling to flourish in. The seed depositor works in conjunction with a press and gauge wheel to ensure accurate seed depth placement. This compact unit is designed to withstand rocky and stony conditions with ease.

Air Distribution technology for all models

  • Seed and fertiliser is delivered to the tine units through
  • an Equalizer SCR™ Hopper with self-cleaning metering
  • technology for unequalled accuracy and consistency.
  • Any type of seed or fertiliser can be measured by rotational speed setting on the Zero Max drive only. No need for roller changes!
  • Large user friendly gauges are easily visible displaying key system pressures.
  • The Polyethylene tanks are suitable for liquid as well as granular fertiliser.

 

No Till Disc Seeder

  • Number of rows range from 16 to 64 rows
  • 228mm; 254mm; 381mm  or 457mm row spacing available
  • Different fertiliser and seed tank options are available
  • Self cleaning metering system
  • Floatation tyres to minimise soil compaction and rolling resistance
  • Hydraulic trip tine action
  • Vertical folding system for transport
