The EasyDrill is one of very few direct drills that can truly be used as a direct drill, a mintill, a grassland and a cover crop drill. On well consolidated ploughing it can also be used in conventional systems. Its low disturbance disc coulter and press wheel not only ensure minimal weed seed germination, they also keep horsepower requirement to a minimum. A 3m EasyDrill typically takes 90hp to pull, which reduces fuel consumption, tractor weight and therefore damage to the soil structure when drilling in damp conditions.
The Sky MaxiDrill is designed as a high speed trailed minimum tillage drill, but works equally well on ploughed and prepared seedbeds and can be used as a direct drill in certain conditions. The key feature of the MaxiDrill is its ability to cope extremely well in wet, sticky and difficult conditions. This enables drilling in heavy residue seedbeds and late into the season when most other minimum tillage drills have been put away.
The MaxiDrill Solo LD is a new configuration of Sky trailed drill designed specifically to cater to the needs of farmers in problem grass weed areas. Individual coulter pressure of up to 120kgs allows the Solo LD to be used as a direct drill on lighter soils and ensures penetration in the more typical min-till systems. The press wheels effectively close the slot without any further soil movement ensuring perfect seed placement and covering.
