The Gearmore Precision Vacuum Planters are designed for extremely accurate vegetable seed placement. The P.T.O. driven turbine fan or optional hydraulic drive creates a vacuum that draws seeds against the seed plates. Inner and outer singulators remove doubles to insure that individual seeds are secured to the vacuum hole. At the seed release point, vacuum is cut off and the seed is deposited in the furrow. The air compressor then injects a short blast of air to insure the hole is clean for the next seed. Easy to operate and maintain, this durable precision planter efficiently handles the smallest of seeds either raw or coated.
