The design of the PHD Seed Opener Assembly
and XTC Seed Opener Assembly
guarantee the same angle of attack relative to soil flow, regardless of it's position. This feature ensure 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 minimize soil disturbance and soil throw. The shank provides two different mounting locations to ensure the best placement for the seeding tip selected.
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.
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 selection
for the Series 3320 & 3420 PHD™.
