Maschio Gaspardo, sowing machines for every need – Agrimeccanica

The selection of sowing machines Man Gaspardo it is really wide. In addition to the versions for the winery, it includes innovative in-line machines that ensure efficiency and quality in grain cultivation.

The grain seeders of the Paduan company are divided into two types depending on the form of transport for the seeds: mechanical (work by gravity) e pneumatic.

Nina and S-SC Maria without secrets

Mechanical seeders Nina And S-SC Maria (seed only and seed plus fertilizer respectively) possess fixed framework conveyors and conical hoppers with large capacity. The relative dosages guarantee a constant sperm flow, even at low volumes and on slopes. The metering system is operated mechanically via the classic transmission wheel, while the dosage adjustment is controlled using the continuous gearbox with three oil bath cams.

At SC Maria i two doses with independent adjustment – one for the seed and the other for the fertilizer – they transport the respective products in the same downpipe, guaranteeing burial in the same furrow. The S-SC Maria seed drills with working width can be used with tractors from 70 to 120 horsepower from 2.5 to 4 meters And 17 to 28 rows they have three rows of furrowed elements that ensure optimal seed deposition even on soil prepared with minimal processing.

The Nina versions – with a power requirement of 60-90 horsepower, working widths of 2.5, 3, 4 meters, number of rows between 17 and 33 – are more suitable for sowing on land that is worked with traditional technique. Both series are available frowning bodies boot, single disc Vortex or double disc Corex.

Pneumatic seeders, efficient distribution

Unlike mechanics, pneumatic seeders Pina, Pint And Spring present folding frames which allows folding within 2.5 or 3 meters for transport. Another characteristic element, the fan – which can be operated via the tractor’s PTO or hydraulically – generates an air flow that allows the seeds to reach the outermost supply tubes and always maintain a high uniformity of distribution, even on slopes.

Added to this is the patented system City Pass by Maschio Gaspardo, through a Venturi-type model, injects additional air into the spout and therefore generates enough turbulence to guarantee maximum homogeneity in the distribution along each row. The dosage is entrusted to volumetric distributors with mechanical or electric drive that can be changed according to the type of seed.

The equipment is completed by truncated conical funnels, which ensure correct folding of the wings lateral, as well as one easy work even with small seed quantities or when sowing on hills.

Pina, Pinta and Primavera: three heroines in sowing

Can be combined with tractors of 70-80 horsepower, the Pina seed drills place the seeds on widths of 4 or 4.5 meters, using 29 or 32 rows spaced from 12.5 to 14 centimeters. Their funnels hold up 800 liters.

Otherwise, Pinta offers working widths from 4 to 6 metersfrom 29 to 40 rows and funnel from thousand liters. The Pina and Pinta seed drills, ideal for seeding on traditionally tilled land, can count on two rows and coulters with shoes or simple Vortex disc.

Primavera – available in 5 or 6 meter widths, 40-48 rows and 1,500 liter capacity – works best with 180 horsepower tractors. It is also suitable for watching minimally cultivated land thanks to four rows and the option to choose between straight tip or double disc cutter. All three series are also offered in towed versionsuitable for use with crawler or low power tractors.

Isobus for top precision

It doesn’t end here. Pinta and Primavera can have Isotronic electrical transmission with the protocol of Isobus communication which allows you to take advantage of various precision farming functions, optimize the control of seeders and reduce maintenance interventions.

The Pinta SC Isotronic model is able to bury the fertilizer in the seed furrow with an independent dosing system, which promotes a faster development of the plants. All Isotronic versions compatible to Agriculture 4.0 requirements they can be purchased by taking advantage of the tax advantages provided for in the Budget Act.

Maschio Gaspardo, space also for the front funnels

To meet the needs of contractors and farmers who sow under special conditions, the company also offers Pinta and Primavera seed pods can be combined with front funnels PA1 and PA2 SF.

The Pinta poles of 4, 5, 6 meters can only be combined with the funnel 1,100 liters PA1 for seed distribution, while the 6-meter Primavera can be used with PA1 or PA2 SF. The latter, with internal partition (1,100 liters for the seed and 900 liters for the fertiliser), two dispensers and two fans, distributors two different products in the same groove at once. PA1 and PA2 SF funnels are always used volumetric dosing devices replaceable, electrically operated and compatible with the tractor’s Isobus terminal.
