High Efficiency 18" Turbo Fan. Apply up to 350 pounds per acre without worrying about plugging. The Bourgault design is extremely efficient, requiring only 5 to 10 horsepower. The blower is dynamically balanced to ensure years of trouble free operation.
Convenient Hopper On The Loading/Unloading Auger. 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 blower 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 life time of reliability.
Fantastic Flotation By Four 16.5 x 16.1 ALL WEATHER TIRES. The Series II, MODEL 2155 is standard with four 16.5 x 16.1, All Weather, lug type tread tires. It also features four independent wheel tracks to minimize compaction and pulverization. The Model 2155 has more rubber per bushel to ensure normal emergence in the wheel tracks. (Loading is 2.35 bushels per inch width of tire).
The Fastest Rate Change System In The Industry. Here is convenience, A WRENCHLESS rate change system that lets you 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 That You Just Can't Wear Out. 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.
Hook Up Is Quick and Easy. It takes less than five minutes to hook up to your cultivator. Tighten the clamp on the Single Transfer Line, re-attach the hydraulic and electrical quick couplers and you're ready to go. Whether you're applying Trifluralin on 160 acres in July, or seeding 100 acres of rye in August, re-connecting the seeder requires only a few minutes of your time.
Loading Or Unloading Is A Snap. The 7 inch auger will load the air seeder in less than 15 minutes. The well balanced auger is convenient to manoeuvre 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.
Conveniently Located Auger/Blower Selector Valve. Control valve selects either the hydraulic blower or load/unload auger. There is no need to shut the blower down at the tractor on hydraulic units, as selecting the auger turns the blower off. Load the unit, close the lids and check the system by again selecting the blower mode without having to go back to the tractor.
Dual Shoot Seed Or Fertilizer And Granular Herbicide. This modestly priced optional attachment is available to allow you to combine operations. The air seeder can be converted from single shoot to double shoot in a matter of minutes. An optional auxiliary clutch is available to control the rear meter independent of the front meter. Enhanced efficiency translates into enhanced profitability.
Full Meter Calibration To Ensure Seeding Accuracy. Ease of calibration is built in. Calibration ports are located under each metering auger and the entire output of each auger is collected using specially designed boxes. This technique eliminates the error inherent with collecting a small sample from only one boot. Chemical application requires that calibration be done precisely—full meter calibration ensures that it is.
