Contact your local Bourgault Dealer for availability of the AP™ option with FMS™.

FMS™ Air Planter Concept

How it Works

The Air Planter™ has a Bulk Fill System that transfers seed from the air tank to the XP Meters™ located on the frame of the drill.

Other than an extra fan, the Bulk Fill System uses no moving parts to gently transfer seed to the XP Meters™. The singulated seed is closely counted by the sensor at the exit of each XP Meter™, displaying the performance of each run on the Apollo Monitor. This allows the Operator to immediately investigate any abnormal performance issues such as skips, doubles, or plugs.

  • A. The Bulk Fill Fan creates airflow to transfer seed from the Air Seeder Inductor to the XP Meter Reservoirs™.
  • B. Air pressure is created providing positive pressure at each XP Meter™ and delivers seed to the boot.
  • C. When the reservoirs on the XP Meters™ are full, the column of seed prevents further air and seed flow.
  • D. Seed is carried from the Inductor Box attached to the bottom of the PDM Pro™ Metering Auger Sump to the XP Meter Reservoirs™.
