VITASEM 97+232.EN.1215 Mechanical seed drills The best drill – the best harvest PÖTTINGER seed drills meet the highest demands in functionality, reliability and performance. Unique metering systems, uniform seed placement and convenient operation are among their trademarks. VITASEM / VITASEM CLASSIC Mechanical linkage-mounted VITASEM A / VITASEM A CLASSIC Mechanical implement-mounted VITASEM ADD Mechanical implement-mounted seed drills with DUAL DISC coulters Contents Page Linkage-mounted seed drills 5 Implement-mounted seed drills 7-9 Metering system 10 - 15 Coulter systems 16 - 21 Features 22 - 27 Technical data / Equipment 28 - 31 All information on technical data, dimensions, weights, output, etc. is approximate and is not binding. 3 4 VITASEM VITASEM CLASSIC Linkage-mounted seed drills You can use VITASEM linkage-mounted seed drills on their own or in a combination with soil preparation implements. VITASEM linkage-mounted The large ground wheels drive the metering shaft and reduce the pressure the machine exerts on the soil. Wheel scrapers are standard equipment. The three-point linkage mounting with rugged mounting lugs and two top linkage positions enables rapid attachment to the tractor. The headstock is bolted to the seed hopper for added strength. Additional equipment options Proven spring-loaded track eradicators. Compensator for lower linkages when using the seed drill on its own. Track eradicator for seed drill wheels: angle and penetration of the tine can be adjusted. (1) The tine can be folded away for transport. VITASEM CLASSIC 1 The seed hopper height is 2.36" / 60 mm lower on VITASEM CLASSIC seed drills. Featuring a smaller seed hopper and semi automatic track markers – this is the lightweight version for smaller tractors. 5 VITASEM A VITASEM A CLASSIC VITASEM ADD Mechanical implement-mounted In the field the weight of the seed drill acts directly on the rear roller. The power harrow retains its freedom of movement and can ride over stones. Mounted on power harrows or compact combinations, the weight of the seed drill is placed as far forward as possible. The additional weight of the seed drill on the rear roller provides even better consolidation of the seedbed. The distance between the coulters and the power harrow rear roller is minimised to form a compact unit. VITASEM A / VITASEM A CLASSIC Suffolk coulters or single-disc coulters Coulter pressure up to 55 lbs / 25 kg. Depth guidance wheels optional on single-disc coulters. VITASEM A CLASSIC models have a smaller seed hopper. They are consequently lighter and designed for operation with smaller 4-cylinder tractors. Very good visibility to the rear is possible thanks to the lower seed hopper. VITASEM ADD The large DUAL DISC coulters allow high working speeds when mulch drilling and operating in heavy, hard soils. Coulter disc diameter 13.78" / 350 mm. Coulter pressure up to 110 lbs / 50 kg. 7 Quick and easy configuration VITASEM A implement-mounted seed drills are quickly and easily fitted to and removed from the soil preparation implement. Easy to fit: Reverse under the seed drill and lift the power harrow. Fit locking bars to secure seed drill. (1) Remove retention pins on rear roller to create parallel linkage between packer and drill Fit top link to seed drill. 2 Parallel linkage The implement-mounted drill is fixed to the rear roller and guided via the top link that forms a parallel linkage. (2) 1 8 Packer and seed drill form a single unit. This enables the working depth of the power harrow to be changed by adjusting the roller without having to correct the seed drill top link. Compact unit with centre of gravity close to tractor A hydraulic cylinder is also available to pivot the seed drill up over the power harrow. (3) 3 The best position of centre of gravity in relation to tractor. The high ground clearance of the drill coulters means that the power harrow can be used on its own – For example: levelling of plough furrows. (4) 4 2 Shallow working Deep working Tillage Consolidation Placing and covering Levelling 9 Seed hopper Practical seed hopper The front and rear wall of the VITASEM seed hopper is so steep that all the seed flows to the metering system without the need for an agitator. The headstock is integrated into the seed hopper centre wall and bulkhead plate for highest possible strength. A partition plate inside the hopper prevents the seed from wandering to one side when working across slopes. A seed level indicator is fitted as standard. Rugged lid with rubber seal and gas strut as standard Two angles of opening are possible with a limit stop (85° or 103° for Big-Bags). The design of the seed hopper lid is unique in the farming business and has been adopted from the automotive industry. Instead of being welded, the lid plate is bonded to its frame so that no weld seams are visible. Rotating or oscillating agitator Available as options for seed material that is liable to bridge or does not flow well, such as grass seed. Can be disengaged manually easily and quickly. 10 Seed flow The seed is drawn straight from underneath the feed funnel. This system ensures uniform seed flow, even when working up, down and across slopes. Empties completely – no cleaning required Wide, funnel-shaped outlets above each metering wheel ensure precision feed right down to the last grain, guaranteeing minimum residues and low minimum filling quantities. The wide opening angle of the bottom flap allows for simple emptying and ensures that the metering area is completely emptied. Wide loading platform Operator access is on the left with a folding step and handrail along seed hopper. Optional right-hand bridging step available for VITASEM A. The secure handrail is mounted directly onto the seed hopper (not to the lid) for enhanced safety. Easy to fill thanks to plenty of space for seed sacks, the handrail on the seed hopper and the large hopper opening. 11 Multi sowing system Perfection, seed by seed Their unique seed metering system is the trademark of VITASEM seed drills. Two completely independent metering units are combined in the one seed housing. The metering wheels are located on the same metering shaft. The advantage is that the small seed and normal metering wheels no longer need to be individually locked. Central adjustment of seed flaps. The spring-loaded, individually adjustable flaps can easily ride over foreign objects. The partition integrated into the seed flap prevents overflowing. The raised partition prevents grain overflow when changing from fine to normal metering, guaranteeing precision seed flow. The metering wheels are suitable for all kinds of standard seed types. The multi-sow system handles any seed with perfect metering accuracy – from 0.62 to 357 lbs per acre / 0.7 to 400 kg per hectare. Two individual metering wheels in each housing mean you can switch between normal seed and small seed metering within minutes. The benefit of this innovative solution lies in the considerable improvement to seed output accuracy with small seeds and the ease in changing between seed sizes. The main priorities of seed drill technology – reduction in wastage and optimised plant distribution density – have been well catered for. 13 1 14 2 3 3 in 1 multi-sow system 1 morning cereals 2 midday oil seed rape 1 Normal seed metering 3 evening clover, etc. Normal metering 2 Small seed metering Standard seed, small seed A separate inlet slide for the small seed and normal seed range make it easy to switch between small seed and normal seed metering by pushing in or pulling out the slides. The system guarantees you can switch the metering in seconds. The optimised shape of the metering peg ensures the highest level of seed care. Drilling oil seed rape with low numbers of seed per square meter for optimum plant distribution density is ensured by the unique small seed metering wheel with its sawtooth shaped profile. Reverse metering 3 Reverse metering Precision sowing principle for poppy seed and clover, etc. Unique amongst mechanical seed drills. To plant small seeds, the direction of rotation of the metering shaft is amongst by simply switching the gears in the side drive unit. Small hollows on the rear of the sowing wheel pegs take only one grain and drop it overhead into the seed funnel. Ideal for extremely low seed density below 0.89 lbs/acre / 1 kg/ha. 15 1 3 2 16 VITASEM / VITASEM A Suffolk coulters / Single-disc coulters Best seed placement guaranteed Yield at harvest is influenced by precision seed placement. Regardless of whether you have light, heavy, dry or moist soil – optimum placement of the seed is critical for a satisfactory harvest. Central coulter pressure adjustment with indicator scale (1) Equal coulter pressure system (2) for the same pressure on front and rear coulters. Perfect seed slot – precise depth control (3) Consistent row spacing Coulter arms are secured using a large clamp mounting on the coulter rail. Wide coulter arm mountings are fitted with replaceable bushes and the ability to ride over foreign bodies with up to 7.09" / 180 mm movement upwards. Inter coulter rail spacing (offset) of 11.81" / 300 mm provides plenty of clearance for blockage-free sowing. Seed depth is controlled via the coulter pressure even without press wheels. The PÖTTINGER disc coulter system for best seed germination The concave disc coulters are suitable for mulch drilling and when there is a lot of organic matter. PÖTTINGERs diagonally tracking disc coulters open up the soil. The cast shoe, similar to a Suffolk coulter, removes wilted straw and crop residues from the seed placement area and forms a neat seed slot. Uniform seed germination is guaranteed as a result. up to 55 lbs / 25 kg 17 VITASEM / VITASEM A Advanced coulter system Optimised coulter geometry Different shapes of coulter with an inter coulter rail spacing (coulter offset) of 11.81" / 300 mm provide sufficient clearance even when operating in harvest trash. Disc coulters Concave 12.60" / 320 mm diameter single disc coulters are equipped with special dust tight seals. The rotating scrapers are adjustable and located to the rear so as to not reduce side clearance. Easily handles large clods. The disc coulter is fitted with a long life hard wearing cast coulter point. Suffolk coulters The Suffolk coulter is suitable for soil conditions where there are low amounts of organic matter. A protective flap closes each coulter automatically if the machine moves backwards. The spring-mounted coulter can fold back for reliable protection. Wear-resistant cast coulter points. Depth guidance press wheels Depth guidance press wheels 9.84 x 1.57" / 250 x 40 mm available as option to limit depth and provide consolidation Straightforward pin-inhole depth adjustment. Can be fitted and removed by hand – no tools needed. Even placement depth even in changeable soils. Presses down to cover seed perfectly. Reliable germination even in dry conditions. 18 Large dimensioned seed funnel The large dimensioned seed funnel for transition to seed tube (especially for spelt). The rubber gaiters provide maximum flexibility of the seed tubes to ensure perfect transport between the metering wheel and the coulter. The best material quality for telescopic seed tubes The telescopic seed tubes are manufactured from stainless steel at the top and synthetic at the bottom to provide the lowest friction. This combination of materials greatly reduces the static charge in the seed grains. 19 VITASEM ADD DUAL DISC Coulters The large diameter DUAL DISC coulters cut right through surface trash to form a uniform, tidy seed slot. Harvest residues are not pressed into the ground. This system achieves a uniform, tidy seed slot. World-class technology for future-safe arable farming. DUAL DISC Disc coulter diameter 13.78" / 350 mm, up to 110 lbs / 50 kg coulter pressure. Row spacing 4.92" / 125 mm for best plant distribution density. Row spacing 5.91" / 150 mm for difficult soil conditions. Maintenance-free coulter system. Aluminium coulter arms to reduce weight. Equal length arms – constant coulter pressure system. Each of the disc coulters is guided by a press wheel to ensure uniform seed placement and depth – press wheel diameter 12.99" / 330 mm. Inter coulter rail spacing of 11.81" / 300 mm provides a large clearance and smooth material flow even with large amounts of organic matter. A well-formed, tidy seed slot is essential for successful drilling. The guarantee for optimum placement and uniform germination. The seed is placed at defined intervals, covered with a layer of fine soil and firmed down by press wheels. Easy depth adjustment The depth can be quickly adjusted using the ratchet spanner provided, on either side at the front of the seed drill. The depth scale guarantees uniform seed placement and depth. 21 Perfect sowing Rear harrow options The 0.39" / 10 mm harrow tines feature coil springs for perfect ground tracking. Shocks are absorbed using maintenance-free rubber mountings and damage is prevented if the machine is reversed inadvertently. Central tine angle adjustment. Easy to use adjustment functions for depth and pressure. Outer tines can be retracted for road transport (9.84 and 13.12' / 3.0 and 4.0 m transport width). No additional adapters required if press wheels are fitted Standard single-row harrow tine The tines are positioned between the seed lines. Ridging is prevented by a pair of cranked harrow tines at either end. These tines are positioned between the seed lines. to prevent blocakges even in heavy organic material. PERFEKT harrow tines Designed for an intensive levelling effect. Cranked tines sweep the whole surface level. The seed is covered effectively, even when placed at a shallow depth. The result is uniform germination of every seed. 22 Step-less metering gearbox runs in high viscosity oil Consistent land wheel drive On VITASEM A seed drills the land wheel is positioned within the working width – no need to remove the wheel for road transport. The large diameter wheel has a large area of contact with the ground to minimise slippage. A hydraulic lift system is also available. The gears inside the infinitely adjustable metering gearbox run in high viscosity oil for smooth, uniform seed flow, even at low speed. Quick, accurate adjustment of the seed rate by shifting the lever on the finely-calibrated scale on the side of the machine. The number of revolutions for calibration are reduced by half. Electric metering For VITASEM A / VITASEM ADD Electric metering is available as an option in connection with a POWER CONTROL or CCI ISOBUS control terminal. The speed signal is provided by the optional DGPS sensor or by the tractor radar sensor. No land wheel. The seed flow rate can easily be adjusted from the tractor seat. Calibration at the press of a button. 23 Optimierte 1 Easy f Scharsystem to set up It couldn't be more straightforward 1 All adjustments can be made from the left-hand side or rear of the machine. Everything in one place saves time. The adjustment controls are easily accessible and positioned ergonomically. Central coulter pressure adjustment Coulter pressure is adjusted centrally on the left hand side of the machine (against an indicator scale). Precise tension spring matching ensures the same pressure is applied to the front and rear coulters. 2 A coulter pressure of up to 55 lbs / 25 kg is possible on the VITASEM (1) and VITASEM A (2) Hydraulic coulter pressure adjustment is also available. Central coulter pressure adjustment on the VITASEM ADD up to a pressure of 110 lbs / 50 kg.
