The self contained design of the Bourgault FMS is comprised of the signature Bourgault heavy-duty steel air seeder tank and an independent seeding drill [either coulter (CD) or hoe drill HD].
The air seeder is designed with the same proven Bourgault ingenuity found on Bourgault's large air seeder tanks. Design features such as the PDM ProTM Metering Auger
that delivers accurate product metering of an extensive range of seeds and fertilizers and the KNEX inter-tank
system (found on the 6000 and 7000 series tanks) that allows you the flexibility to combine or separate tanks for increased seeding productivity.
Large, hi-flotation tires located on the back of the drill support the contents of the 136 bu (4800 L) or 200 bu (7200 L) air seeder.
The DRILL (CD or HD)
Both the coulter and hoe drills operate independently of a sturdy 5" (127 mm) x 5" (127 mm) fixed frame.
The front of the drill is designed with a solid draw hitch which transfers the load to the tractor.
The 20' (6 m) FMS unfolds into a rigid continuous bar. The 26' (8 m) can be equipped with optional running gear on the wing to operate as a 3-plex bar for improved land following capability.
