Product Features

Centurion Cultivation Discs
CULTIVATION DISCS

Two rows of 460mm diameter 25mm or 50mm notched cultivation discs are mounted in pairs on maintenance-free hubs. Disc-to-disc spacing is 250mm and 650mm between the front and rear gangs.

00 Series Opener
00 SERIES DRILL OPENER

Designed for accuracy and well proven across a range of Great Plains seeders, the 00 Series opener is standard on the Centurion drill and offers a choice of 167mm or 125mm coulter spacing. The Centurion CDA 300 sows 18 rows (at 167mm spacing) and 24 rows (at 125mm spacing). Opener down pressure is hydraulically adjustable between 40kg and 160kg to suit the user’s needs and soil conditions and to ensure that the coulter arms remains parallel to the ground at all times.

00 Series Opener designed for accurate seed placement
ACCURATE SEED PLACEMENT

Easy individual depth adjustment and the active down-pressure system ensures even seeding depth. The specially designed seed tube guides seed to the bottom of the trench to maximise placement accuracy. Each coulter incorporates a seed flap to eliminate seed bounce and a rubber cushion which acts as a depth-stop.

Tyre Packer
CONSOLIDATION

Intermediate full width packer comprising 420/55 17 tyres placed ahead of the drilling coulters features shallow cleated tread pattern for consistent consolidation and excellent self-cleaning.

Seed Distribution System
SEED DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM

Precise injection-moulded seed distribution heads with tramline shut-offs and optional seed blockage monitors accurately deliver seed to each coulter.

Safe, easy and convenient seed calibration
OPERATOR FRIENDLY SEED CALIBRATION

With seed calibration mode selected from the cab, the operator simply walks to the rear of the drill where a dedicated pipe delivers the metered amount.

Optional hopper weigh cells
OPTIONAL HOPPER WEIGH CELLS

Under the hopper three highly accurate weigh cells automatically adjust the hydraulic down pressure on the wings to maintain consistent working depth across the full width of the machine. Dampers stop the reading fluctuating when the drill is at work.
