Paralink™ Hoe Drills - Features 

XTC Seed Opener Assembly

eXtra Terrain Contouring

The XTC Seed Opener Assembly incorporates proven PHD features into a unique design which includes a tighter opener-to-packer distance and one-to-one contour ratio.
  • Dual Protected Cylinder Rod – The hydraulic cylinder rod is protected with an inner layer of nickel and outer layer of hard chrome for superior corrosion and wear resistance.
  • Superior Piston Seals – The hydraulic cylinder is equipped with double u-cup piston seals which offer excellent protection from wear and damage - the leading cause of internal leakage.
  • Paralink™ Control – The Paralink™ design maintains the opener angle to the ground as the opener follows the ground profile, allowing the operator opener choice.
  • Indexed Seed Depth Quick Adjust – Adjusting the depth on an independent depth system is time consuming, so Bourgault incorporates a simple notched profile with locking pin for simple and repeatable depth setting across the whole unit.
  • Optimized Opener-to-Packer Spacing - this spacing has been set to enhance consistent seeding depth when seeding over hill tops and through water runs, yet still allow managed residue to flow through.
  • Bolt-On Seed Knife – Bourgault recommends choosing between various narrow seed-only knife openers for the best results for your given conditions and farming techniques.
  • Packer Wheel Choice – You can choose a packer wheel that best suits your choice of knife.
  • Bolt-On Packer - Packer wheels can be quickly changed in the field. Get seeding again in a matter of minutes!
  • Quick Hydraulic Response - the 3320 XTC seed arm utilizes a 1¼” (32mm) diameter cylinder for quick opener lifting in the headlands.
  • Basic Geometry of Series 3320 PHD Openers - There are fundamental differences between the XTC and PHD seed openers. It is because of these fundamental differences that each will offer outstanding seeding results, and will each excel in specific operational and environmental conditions.
  • Lube-Free Bushings - Spend more time in the field, and less time greasing. Bourgault incorporates fibre and hardened steel bushings to ensure long service life without the hassle of greasing.
