Once Over Condor System From Lely
You can plow, prepare the seedbed and plant in one trip with the new Condor Sys-tern from Lely. Introduced in Europe last month at the DLG show in Frankfurt and slated for unveiling in the U.S. later this year, it "marries up" proven componentsùLely's power-driven Roterra harrow and Lely's air seeder.
Here, in an 18.5 ft. wide pass, are the major options the system provides in a once-over operation, using front and rear mounted equipment on a 150 hp tractor with front and rear 3 pt. and pto:
•    Plow, till and plant (see drawing).
•    Plow and prepare the seedbed.
•    Prepare the seedbed and plant.
•    Seed only (using two Roterra units and one air planter-hopper up front, and one Roterra and air planter-hopper unit in back.
"So far as we know, no other manufacturer offers a complete system comparable to the Condor. It allows you to do three operations ùplow, prepare the seedbed and plantù in just one operation, and at normal plowing speed," notes Peter Koeman, European exporter of Lely equipment. "The air planter's seed-metering mechanism is ground driven."
