Pneumatic seed drill VEGA 8 PROFI is designed for precision sowing, using minimum and traditional cultivation technologies. Provides sowing of seeds of corn, sunflower, soybeans and other row crops with the simultaneous introduction of mineral fertilizers and soil press rolling in the sown rows.
Thanks to this method of aggregation, this seeder works with tractors with power from 80 hp, which provides lower fuel consumption compared to mounted counterparts.
Due to the fact that the fan is installed on the hitch, the possibility of cardan breakage during turns is excluded, and there is no need to turn off the tractor PTO shaft, which eliminates the loss of seed and reduces the time for turning.
Electronic control system is installed on the VEGA 8 PROFI seeders, which monitors the passage of seeds in each opener, the speed of movement and transmits information to a monitor installed in the tractor cab, which allows keeping records of the sown area.
• Double disc coulter made of boron steel of increased hardness has an increased resource up to 100%.
• Ability to regulate pressure on the soil up to 280 kg.
• Ability to use a lump or slotted disc.
• Adjustable V-shaped press wheel.
• Gauge wheels ensure accurate seed placement in depth. Gauge wheels with spokes eliminate soil clogging in the inner cavity of the wheel.
• High position of the sowing unit - excludes clogging with crop residues.
Sowing unit is made of durable aluminum alloys by injection molding, which ensures accurate single-grain seed dosing; its features are as follows:
• presence of upper and lower adjustable seed ejectors, excluding the presence of duplicate seeds;
• amount of seeds falling from the hopper into the sowing chamber is regulated by a flap;
• easy and convenient maintenance without tools;
• a quick-release tedder, installed on the seeding disc, prevents compaction of seeds and getting stuck in the chamber of the sowing apparatus;
• presence of a viewing window makes the adjustment easy;
• sealing gasket is built into the body and has a lip, the erasure of which signals the need to replace it;
• sowing unit is mounted on a frame, which eliminates the influence of loads on it and guarantees durability of use;
• presence of an unloading window ensures complete unloading of seeds after work;
• presence of seeding discs of increased diameter allows to improve the quality of seed placement;
• rotation shaft of the seeding discs is mounted on rolling bearings with increased dust protection, which increases service life.
Dynamic design of the chain tensioners on the sections, eliminates chain dropping, during the operation of the drill.
Constant depth control is ensured by spoked wheels mounted on a balancer, which allows each roller to move independently, even when one of the wheels hits an obstacle and unevenness (e.g. stones) without changing the seeding depth. The spoked copying wheels prevent the earth from sticking to the inner surface of the wheel and as a consequence, damage to the bearing unit of the disc coulter hub of the section is eliminated and the service life of the disc coulter is increased.
Cleaners are installed to clean soil sticking on the copying wheels and double disc coulters for sowing seeds, which ensures uniform sowing depth on a wet background.
Disc coulters with new bearing unit. The seeders use double-row ball bearings, which have an increased service life and a greater resistance to dynamic loads.
Precise and easy adjustment of sowing depth is ensured by rotating the handle relative to the scale.
The V-shaped press roller compacts the soil around the seeds and allows moisture to be drawn into the sowing area, which ensures better contact between the seeds and the soil and promotes earlier and more uniform germination.
It is installed in front of the working section and ensures removal of clods and dry soil from the sowing area.
*recommended for use with traditional technology.
The unique design of the cutting disc ensures maximum efficiency and high quality cutting of crop residues and soil cutting. The conical waves of the cutting disc cut the soil and effectively loosen the side walls of the furrow directly in front of the coulter. The disc waves enter the soil perpendicular to the surface, which gives maximum cutting effect, and exit the soil parallel to the surface, which allows to “control” ejection of soil.
*recommended for No-Till, Mini-Till with small amounts of crop residues.
This unit is designed to clear the furrow in front of the double-disc coulter from plant debris. It provides the double-disc coulter with uniform and high-quality sowing of row crops.
* recommended for No-Till, Mini-Till with large amounts of crop residues
The design of the cutting disc ensures high-quality cutting of compacted soil. The row cleaner effectively clears the furrow from the abundance of crop residues. This design provides the double-disc coulter with accurate and uniform placement of seeds into the furrow at any soil density.
*recommended for direct sowing with large amounts of crop residues
Seeder is equipped with plastic hoppers made of high quality polyethylene. This, in turn, provides a significantly lower hopper weight; resistance to various types of corrosion; and vibration resistance. In addition, these bins do not require periodic painting.
VEGA 8 PROFI seeder has a total capacity of the seed hoppers - 416 l, and 680 l - for fertilizers. So, for example, at the seeding rate of corn - 5 seeds per 1 running meter - the seeder can sow 6 hectares without additional loading.
A gearbox unit of 5x5 gears has been installed, now the farmer has the opportunity to use a wider range of seeding rates, due to the bigger number of gear ratios of the gearbox wheels.
This system represents polymer seeding units with polymer reels that are not subject to corrosion, and it enables to quickly and smoothly change the application rate by turning the adjustment knob. Thanks to this, there is no need in a device for changing fertilizer application rates.
Usege of double-disc fertilizer openers on Vega seeders has improved the quality of soil fertilization. By the consumers request, single-disc fertilizer openers could be installed on the seeder,optionally.
The fertilizer bunker is equipped with a protective screen for fertilizers screening, which helps to prevent the ingress of stones and large objects that can disrupt the operation of the seeder.
Due to the fact, that the fan is installed on the trailer unit, the possibility of cardan breakage during turns is excluded, and there is no needs to turn off the tractor PTO shaft, which eliminates the loss of seeds and reduces the time for turning around.
Use of high-pressure hoses of improved quality with double swaging allows the drill to operate under more demanding conditions without the fear of hydraulic fluid leaks and breaks under high pressure.
Usege of high-strength pipes of European steels allows to reduce the weight of the frame structure, while increasing its strength and rigidity, which leads to decreasing tractor fuel consumption.
Frame tube, acting as a receiver, provides a stable value of vacuum in all seeding units (it allows keeping heavy seeds in the holes of the seeding discs of the outer sections).
Transportation device in the basic configuration, provides additional protection against tire damage by plant stems and other objects on the surface of the field, with a transport width of 2.67 m allows you to move the seeder on public roads.
Design of the coupling hitch allows for aggregation with tractors of different manufacturers.
