Agritechnica: No rain on this ‘Plain'

Great Plains is exhibiting two new drills that can fold to 3m for transport. The Spartan 607HD has a 6m working width and a single 5,280-litre hopper, while the 9m 907HD plumps for a pair of 3,500-litre tanks.
Both drills employ a hydraulic pressure system to allow their coulter frames to float over ground contours and also to lift the machines out of work. By tweaking its independent opener and coulter design, the firm now provides users with the option to go down to 15cm row spacing as well as operate at its more traditional wider 19 and 25cm spacings.
Coulter pressures of up to 250kg mean the drill can be worked either direct into stubbles or on cultivated land. Price for the 6m model, which requires 260hp up front, is US$100,000.
