Product Description

Next Generation Spartan Air Drill

Built around tried and tested components and technologies such as the well-proven zone cultivation design of Great Plains’ 07 Series opener, the second generation SpartanII incorporates a wide range of new and improved features.

Perhaps the most significant change to the Spartan is a complete rework of the drill’s seed tower configuration. The new patented system utilizes half the number of towers and all of them are mounted on the center section. Primary and secondary hose diameters have increased by 20% for improved seed distribution and air flow. Significantly shortened hose lengths from meter to tower and faster variable-rate shut-off from the cab reduce spillage around headland turns.

Other improvements have been made with ease-of-use very much in mind, including seed calibration located at the rear of the machine, easier access to weight brackets, improved on-road handling, and a new variable-rate hydraulic drive.

The SpartanII retained many important features as well: zonal cultivation and seeding, impressive opener down pressure for true no-till seeding, hydraulic weight transfer, and excellent ground contour following. The SpartanII is available with a single seed-only 5280-liter hopper or two 2885-liter hoppers for seed/dry fertilizer applications. The new 6m-working-width SpartanII 607 can be specified with 40 or 32 rows, giving row spacings of 15cm and 18.75cm respectively.

Product Features

Zone Cultivation
Seeding System = Zone Cultivation

This technology ensures that every seed sown is placed at the optimum depth in an ideal environment to facilitate consistently even germination and it is an integral part of the specification of our widely acclaimed and highly successful direct drills.


The tower system on the new Spartan II 607 has been completely redesigned. The new arrangement not only looks cleaner and tidier, but also offers some important practical benefits.


Wings of the frame can flex down 10 degrees and up over 15 degrees. The Spartan also features great flexibility of 15 degrees from front to back.

Hydraulic Drive
Hydraulic Drive

The second generation Spartans replace a mechanical variable-rate drive with a variable-rate hydraulic drive to allow population adjustments from the cab, as well as variable rate mapping.


The rear axle on the new Spartan has a significantly increased track width to improve stability on the road. New style caster wheels are fitted with 10.0-75-15.3 BKT tyres, capable of running at the higher speeds that customers demand. The rear casters follow in the same footprint as the cart tires so as not to create additional tracks. Tires also include a scraper to keep them clean. The operator can manually lock them in place for safe and controlled backing on and off of trailers or lorries.

Weight Brackets
Weight Brackets

Weight brackets have been relocated to make them more accessible. The weight brackets provide the weight necessary to achieve up to 250kg pressure per row to penetrate in no-till establishment systems. Now, with unimpeded access, these weight blocks can be quickly and easily removed for min-till operations, to reduce compaction or to mitigate the creation of tire tracks in softer conditions.


Seed calibration is a quick and convenient push-button operation from the rear of the machine.

Small Seeds Star
Small Seed Crops

The Spartan also has capabilities to establish small seed crops. An optional small seeds roller is available for cover crop applications, oilseed rape, clovers and other small seeds.

Press Wheel Scraper and Following Tine

An optional following harrow and press wheel scraper is available for the single and center rib press wheels.
