Weaving Dual Disc tool allows direct seeding for cover crops

Weaving Machinery has come up with a neat tool to remedy the perennial problem of cover crops hooking around tine drill legs and causing blockages.

The Dual Disc mounts to the tractor’s front linkage and has a row of discs spaced so that they line up with the drill’s coulters.

The theory is that they cut through the mat of cover crop, providing a clear path for the leg to pass through.

Discs are mounted in pairs and are spaced at 16.5cm, matching up perfecting with coulters on the maker’s Sabre Tine drills.

They’re attached to a fixed beam with rubber mounts, which the firm says doesn’t affect steering as the discs are cutting crop on the surface, rather than engaging with the ground.

Prices start at £7,800 for a rigid 3m version, with hydraulic folding 4.8m and 6m models coming in at £10,800 and £11,800, respectively.

A larger 8m model is also in the pipeline, which will complement the maker’s new 8m Sabre Tine drill.
