Claydon has announced the addition of two new rigid 4m Hybrid drills to its mounted range.

The new M4RF features a dual 2100 litre hopper with 50:50 seed/fertiliser split allowing fertiliser to be applied at time of seeding.

Growers can choose to apply fertiliser either below the seed (on the front leading tine) or above the seed (on the seeding tine or new LD low disturbance twin tine), says Claydon. There’s also an option of splitting the fertiliser between the front and seeding tine/twin tine.

The M4RF – new rigid 4m Hybrid Seed and Fertiliser drill

The M4R is the seed only version of the 4m rigid drill and has a hopper capacity of 1750 litres. Both new Hybrids come with the Claydon leading tine and a 180mm A share as standard. Also fitted as standard is shear bolt stone protection and a rear double toolbar with metal boards and following tines for seedbed levelling and consolidation.

Optional extras include seed/fertiliser blockages sensors, pre-emergence markers and bout markers.

Both new rigid Hybrid drills have GPS speed sensing, electronically driven metering systems and a 4- channel drill computer allowing the addition of up to two extra applicators for micro granules and slug pellets.

A complete range of seeding share, tine and disc options is offered on both drills, including the new LD Low Disturbance kits. These kits are made up of a twin tine and single or double cutting disc and can be swapped with the standard Claydon set-up in a matter of minutes.

This gives the Hybrid range great flexibility and versatility in meeting a whole range of seeding scenarios and requirements in one drill, says the firm.
