Cereals 2010: Sim-Tech T-Sem drill goes wider

Pneumatic versions of the Sim-Tech T-Sem drill mean wider working width are now possible.

Previous New Zealand-designed Aitchison units were box-drills and so were limited on width. The new version uses an Accord-type metering system with pto-driven fan. Up front, plain discs cut a slot ahead of heavy-section pig-tail tines carrying Aitchison’s inverted T coulter boots.

Finally a spring roller and ziz-zag following-harrow provide consolidation.

Capable of working into grass-swards, direct into stubble, min-till seed-beds or ploughing, a 4.8m T-Sem needs at least 150hp to work at 8-10kph. It costs £29,000.
