Product concept

Zone 1 - Consolidation

Before drilling, the soil is consolidated by the tractor wheels. The pivot packer on Rapid ensures that the same reconsolidation is exerted on areas between tractor wheels.

Zone 2 - Seedbed preparation

To fit different farming needs and tillage practices, Rapid comes with a wide choice of front tools. The intensity can be set hydraulically from the driving seat on the move, depending on what the conditions require.

Zone 3 - Drilling

Rapid has an amazing ability to keep the seed depth under the most difficult conditions. Each packer wheel controls the drilling depth of two coulters by a unique mechanical linkage. The coulters are rubber suspended which ensures a calm operation also at high speed. Depending on model, Rapid 300-400C/S has a coulter pressure up to 245kg, thus enabling an exact seed depth also under the toughest conditions.

Zone 4 - Consolidation

Each packer wheel presses the soil down over two rows of seed and one row of fertiliser. This beds the seed in thoroughly and provides optimum conditions for germination.

Zone 5 - Finishing

The following harrow creats a loose evaporation barrier that prevents surface crusting after heavy rain.
