AN UDATED zero-till drill from Weaving Machinery fronted its efforts at Cereals.

After a successful year of field trials, its GD Drill is based on Weaving’s proven coulter design and the ‘refresh’ also sees the seed hopper capacity increasing to 2.85 tonnes, with an easy access hopper cover.

To cater for farmers’ concerns over soil structure and health, standard fitment is the latest generation Mitas Agriterra 02 tyres on the trailed GD models to help alleviate compaction and wheelings.

Able to run at lower working pressures and with a wider footprint, these handle the increased weight of the hopper capacity without impeding soil health.

A new streamlined variable front weight block allows operators to match the balance of the machine to the tractor and also incorporates an integral toolbox. Hopper access steps finishing off the improvements to the drill.

Refinements to the popular GD coulter have been delivered in the form of a new operator friendly seed tube. If coulter blockages arise, the seed tube is detached from the disc coulter within seconds to reduce machine down time in the field.

The GD6000T will be on show along with the mounted GD3000M on Stand 500 at Cereals.
