Automatic Depth Control For Tillage Equipment
The new De-Aye ultrasonic depth control device promises to be a real boon to more efficient operation of tillage equipment and air seeders. It adapts to virtually all tillage equipment and works in any terrain and any type of soil. Used on the tillage component of air seeders, it provides precise seed depth placement.
The fully automatic De-Aye works under virtually all conditions, including rocky or hilly land, and in fields where there is extreme variation in soil conditions.
Right from the cab, you simply turn the dial for the desired depth of each wing or section. Working depth can be selected in increments of about 3/8 of an inch. The sensors, mounted on the tillage tool, can be positioned anywhere from about 6 to 24 in. from the ground for accurate, automatic depth monitoring.
It works off the tractor's 12 or 24 volt battery and ties into open or center hydraulic systems. Sells for about $3,000.
