Electronic micro-granular seed-drill APE

The pneumatic seed-drill APE has been designed to work in combination with a power harrow in limited spaces: it is complete with an exclusive system for mounting the hopper on the rear roller (of the power harrow) which makes it possible to limit the height even while the implement is lifted off the ground. It allows an even distribution of the seed from beginning to end, thanks to the patented Security Mix system that prevents stratification of the different types and dimensions of seeds. APE is suitable to distribute single-product, granular and grass- mixture seeds, which are used in the green-manure technique. The seeds are sown broadcast and it is possible to adjust both the drilling depth and its width.

On the ground




In the broadcast sowing system the hoses for the falling of the seeds are placed directly behind the crumbling bar. This position which makes the dropping of the seeds directly behind the crumbling bar possible, permits a variation of the seed covering by the flow of soil thrown by the power harrow.

“Security Mix” is the exclusive patented system specifically designed for green manure or a mix of different products, that avoids the separation of the different kind of seeds caused by vibrations. This allows the even distribution of the mix from the beginning to the end of the job.



The exclusive system of attachment on the roller makes it possible to limit the maximum height of the machine even while manoeuvring

Electronic Console APE

The electronic console permits to start and stop the fan and the metering unit directly from the vehicle, where it is positioned, through the cable (5 m. long) connecting the seed-drill with the tractor.
