Air Planter 

Air Planter™ Openers

Unprecedented Planting & Seeding Versatility


The Bourgault Air Planter™ is unique in the marketplace as it is the first to support both seeding and planting on the same implement! 
3820 ParaLink™ Coulter Drill PLR Opener

The PLR Opener is the heart of the new 3820 Series ParaLink™ Coulter Drill.  The PLR was designed in conjunction with the positive pressure Air Planter™ Product Delivery System to provide accurate and consistent seed placement in both seeding and planting configurations.
  • The positive pressure causes seed to exit the Air Planter™ seed tube at a set velocity and angle to meet the soil at the bottom of the furrow just in front of the firming wheel. Captured between the wheel and the soil, seed spacing is maintained while it is pressed into the moist soil at the bottom of the furrow.
  • 3820 Air Planter™ Operators have the ability to include dry fertilizer in the seed row. Starter fertilizer can be directed through the air seeder kit to the forward scraper boot, placing the fertilizer in the seed row with the planted seed.
3330 & 3335 ParaLink™ Hoe Drill Openers
3330/3335 Series PHD™ provides a new platform for the revolutionary Air Planter™ product delivery system. For the first time, you have the ability to seed and plant with a shank equipped implement.  
  • When configured with the optional Air Planter™, the PLS & PLX openers utilise a specific seed boot.  A seed delivery tube is mounted on the rear of the boot to accurately place canola singulated by the XP meter.  Corn seed would be singulated through a swept back tube fitted in the center of the boot.  Products like starter fertilizer or inoculant can still be placed through the standard air kit delivery port on the front of the boot.
  • The PLDS opener is equipped with a second seed delivery tube mounted with the seed knife. Starter fertilizer is safely placed to the side with a starter fertilizer knife.
The use of positive air pressure causes seed to exit the Air Planter™ seed tube at a set velocity ahead of the soil flowing back into the furrow, trapping the seed and maintaining consistent separation for large seeds such as corn.
Note: The Air Planter will only be available on limited models of the 3330/3335 for 2021, contact your dealer for details.
