Sunflower - Model 9800 Series - Single Disc Air Drill
Some have already referred to the Sunflower 9800 Single Disc Drill as a “speed drill” due to its unique ability to seed at a higher speeds without creating uneven seed rows. However, you may just want to call it “extremely versatile.” Whether you run it fast or slow; in no-till, minimum-till or conventional till; flat ground or on a slope, the Sunflower 9800 works well in all conditions.
Hydraulic down pressure on the openers, which is adjustable on the go from the tractor cab, eliminates the need to adjust springs or individual row openers. Thanks to the 9800 Single Disc Drill’s patented design, we’ve also eliminated the need for a gauge wheel running next to the disc. This allows the “opposing single discs” to lift and displace the soil between the two narrow 6” rows. The loosened soil coming off of the twin discs, flows back against the trailing packer wheels, which re-level and firm the soil over the seed rows. This soil displacement process eliminates sidewall compaction, hair pinning and open seed furrows, while leaving a 6” blackened strip to encourage soil warming. Available in seeding widths from 30’ to 60’, the 9800 is the one air drill that will provide maximum productivity in any environment.
