Wiedenmann UK’s launches the Terra Float air, a productive combination of surface conditioner and overseeder.
Combining three units in one, this 1.6 m wide machine delivers versatility with abundance. However its precision and reliability will make it a firm favourite for those seeking maximum accuracy at extremely low rates.
The base unit (the Terra Float) aerates and loosens soil to 30 mm using either spikes or fine slits at 1 500 holes/m² or 500 slits/m² respectively. The second unit is a brush and roller combination which incorporates top dressing materials to the ground before smoothing the surface. Finally a pneumatic air seeder unit sits atop assuring a receptive seed bed either pre or post top dressing.
The high performance air stream effortlessly directs precise amounts of seed to the prepared perforated holes. A series of steel deflector plates ensures uniform depositing of the seeds from a short distance while lifting the unit automatically triggers a shut off. A memory function on the control panel allows storage of input and calibration data for follow up activity.
