Highlights

Versatile drive concept

On the Saphir 8, the speed is electronically measured, and the sowing shaft electrically driven. This enables the most varied types of seed to be reliably and accurately metered. Calibrate it once and the seed rate is set.The electric motor and job computer are mounted in a protected location on the seed drill. They are operated easily from the tractor seat using the Solitronic terminal. Seed rate can be adjusted from the cab whilst travelling across the field – all it takes is a push of a button.

Electrical drive

The electric drive of the seed shaft enables seeds from 0.5 to 500 kg/ha to be metered: Calibrate once and then the seed rate is configured. Electric motor and job computer are mounted at the front in a protected location on the seed drill. They are operated comfortably from the tractor seat using the Solitronic display. Changing the seed rate while driving is no longer a problem – all it takes is a push of a button.

Impulse wheel

On the Saphir 8, an impulse wheel replaces the normal land wheel. As the impulse wheel does not transmit power, speed and distance can be recorded very accurately. The impulse wheel runs between two seed rows, within the width of the seed drill, and therefore always on a seeded area. The drive therefore runs constantly. After work has been completed, the impulse wheel can be folded in a single movement without any tools

Tank sensor

If required, the on-board computer can be equipped with a visual and acoustic low seed level alarm. The sensor in the tank can be moved, up or down, and it records the residual quantity at any given time. On slopes a second sensor detects in good time when the seed hopper is running empty on one side.
