One-Pass Moldboard Seeder
First-of-its-kind tillage unit uses a leveling blade and driven "crumbler" wheels to prepare a seedbed for a rear-pulled seeder.
The one-pass tillage seeder is designed for use behind a moldboard plow. It trails directly behind the plow, pulled by a special spinning linkage that allows reversable plows to flip over on end rows. The first component of the system is a leveling blade with adjustable down pressure that smooths out the biggest chunks left by the plow. Following the blade are two interlocking steel crumbler rollers that are driven at different speeds by ground-driven wheels. One roller is 3 ft. in dia. and the other 21/2 ft. dia. The front roller, which turns at less than the forward speed of the unit, breaks up most of the chunks left behind the leveling blade while the rear roller packs the crumbled seedbed ahead of the rear seeder.
