High Efficiency 18" Turbo Fan. The Bourgault design is extremely efficient, requiring only 5 to 10 horsepower. Not only is it efficient, it is extremely reliable. The blower is dynamically balanced to ensure years of trouble free operation.
Convenient Hopper. The plastic hopper can easily be removed to allow emptying of any remaining grain or fertilizer. Also the flip-up screen gives you easy access to the auger flyting to remove straw or any other contaminants.
Heavy Duty Magnetic Clutch. Extra heavy duty Warner magnetic clutch (rated at a static torque of 70 ft.-lbs.) turns metering on and off. The control box has a visual reminder so you can tell at a glance if the metering is on. An auxiliary clutch is available for independent control of the rear meter.
High Performance Cessna Piston Motor. The 18" radial blade fan is hydraulically powered by a high precision Cessna piston motor. This motor has a rated life of 15,000 hours at 2,500 psi and 3,000 rpm. A virtual lifetime of reliability.
Fantastic Flotation By Four 21.5 x 16.1 SOFTRAC TIRES. The Model 2195 is standard with four 21.5L x 16.1, 6 ply, Softrac lug type tread tires. It also features four independent wheel tracks to minimize compaction and pulverization. The Model 2195 has more rubber per bushel to ensure normal emergence in the wheel tracks. (Loading is 2.23 bushels per inch width of tire).
The Fastest Rate Change System In The Industry. Here is convenience, A WRENCHLESS rate change system that lets change from seeding canola at 5 lbs. per acre to fertilizing at 350 lbs. per acre in less than two minutes. It may not be the prettiest system in the world, but it is absolutely beautiful when it comes to delivering fast, precise rate changes and trouble free service, day in and day out.
A Very Precise Metering System. The most crucial part of any air seeder is its metering system. It must be accurate, but yet durable. The patented Bechard auger metering system has precisely metered grain, fertilizer and chemical on tens of millions of acres since 1981 and we are still waiting for the first one to wear out. And not only is it precise and durable, but it is capable of metering any type of seed or fertilizer without having to change the internal workings of the metering system, a real time saving feature.
The 7 inch auger will load the air seeder in less than 15 minutes. The well-balanced auger is convenient to maneuver and can easily be set up to unload by rotating the auger 180 degrees. The large auger hopper makes for spill free operation and the conveniently placed cleanouts make changing seeds a breeze. The open centre control valve prevents tractor hydraulic kick-out if the auger is stopped or reversed.
