Opener & Packer Choice

It's All About Choice


The Bourgault PHD™ seed drills allow you to choose the opener and packer wheel combination that will work best for your conditions and farming techniques.

Opener Design
The design of the PLS and PLX Seed Opener Arm guarantee the same angle of attack relative to soil flow, regardless of its position. This feature ensures that soil flow will not change as the packer wheel follows the seedbed profile. Both seed opener designs incorporate an edge-on style shank to minimise soil disturbance and soil throw. The shank provides two different mounting locations to ensure the best placement for the seeding tip selected.

Packer - Opener Selection
It is critical to match your opener with the right packer wheel for the best seeding results. Bourgault offers a number of packer options to suit your requirements. Please note that these are general guidelines and may not suit specific requirements for every condition.
  • The 4.5" V-Style semi-pneumatic provides a more aggressive, narrow profile with excellent mud shedding characteristics, and commonly used with narrow openers.
  • The 4.5” semi-pneumatic provides a wide rounded packing profile and typically matched with a ¾” to 2” wide opener.
  • The 5.4" semi-pneumatic provides a wide rounded packing profile and typically matched with a 2” to 4” (51 to 102mm) wide opener.
Careful selection of the right opener with proven results will help you obtain the best possible seeding results. Refer to the Specifications section for more information regarding seed opener & packer selection.
