And drills to match

FARM Force has entered the seed drill market, reasoning that being able to provide drill units to work in combination with its existing range of cultivators is a logical step.

Pneumatic grain and grain/fertiliser models with working widths from 2.5m to 8m are available and, depending on actual model, builds include rigid, end-tow and hydraulic folding versions.

Hopper capacities of 1000 litres or more and Accord seed metering systems are included in the specification. Farm Force points out that the drills can be used both in combination with a cultivator or power harrow, or as solo machines. Price of a 3m, grain only drill with power harrow is listed at £8100.

One of the first viewings of the new drills can be made at the Cereals 99 event held at Royston, on 16/17 June.
