Evolution Rape Seeder

Introduction

Give your crop the best possible start

Whilst Oilseed Rape is a profitable break crop its establishment is becoming increasingly difficult with Flea Beetle hammering crops at cotyledon stage, blackgrass issues and pressure from slugs.

The NEW Evolution Rape Seeder combats all of the challenges to good OSR establishment. Available in 3m, 4m and 5m working widths, the Evolution Rape Seeder incorporates all the technical developments that HE-VA and OPICO have brought to the subsoiler seeding market over the past 10 years. The Evolution Rape Seeder is designed to ensure the crop is given the best possible start.


Features

Disc Openers

Disc openers slice through the soil surface ensuring the following tine does not break it open. Lower soil disturbance prevents/reduces blackgrass germination.

Shearbolt or Hydraulic Reset

Shearbolt SubsoilerThe Subsoiler “Hammer Thru” quick change shear bolt system protects the machine in tough, stony conditions and means minimum  down time for the operator. Its “tolerance style” shearbolt allows several resets before the need for a change.

Alternatively there is a Hydraulic Reset Subsoiler version for extremely stony conditions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hydraulic Reset Subsoiler

All Subsoiler models are available with hydraulic auto reset for extremely stony conditions. An individual hydraulic ram on each of the  Subsoiler legs which is connected to a gas accumulator allows the leg to break back and reset if it comes into contact with an unmovable object. 

As the legs on a Subsoiler are adjusted deeper, the leverage on the hydraulic reset ram increases and so a pressure gauge is used to allow the operator to set the force required for the leg to break back.

Legs & Points

The 15mm low disturbance leg and tungsten tipped LD point are also the product of many years development. Whilst many customers are moving towards reduced tillage systems they appreciate that drainage is key to crop development, allowing timely field operations and preventing the relentless progress of grass weeds such as blackgrass. The low disturbance leg and point that HE-VA has developed allows deep soil loosening whilst minimising surface disturbance and preventing mixing of the soil profile.

The thinner legs are made from stronger Hardox 500 steel and can be interchanged with the standard subsoiler legs as necessary. However, it is the point that really makes the difference. The LD point has a shallower wing angle and shorter tungsten tipped nose that opens the soil to create drainage without disturbing the whole soil profile.

Rear V-Profile Roller

V-Profile Roller

Like many of the machines in the HE-VA range the Evolution Rape Seeder uses the pressed steel V profile ring as standard. However, all the rings are mounted on a 300mm tube so that each section of the roller turns as one ensuring the machine can continue to work in very wet sticky conditions.

Each ring section is castellated ensuring the roller turns in light soils and the aggressive rib and shoulder profile combines with the 125mm spacing to leave an excellent consolidated weatherproof finish.

Accu-Disc

The HE-VA Accu-Disc is a double disc coulter with press wheel, this is the next step in Till-Seeding enabling seed placement to be controlled precisely and consistently to your required depth.

The Accu-Disc coulters are placed in line with the subsoiler legs, once the leg has passed through and created some tilth on the surface and the roller has re-consolidated the soil the Accu Disc coulter opens the soil and places the seed at a constant depth ensuring no seed is visible on the surface then the rear press wheel closes and re-consolidates ensuring good seed to soil contact.

Models

Models

The Evolution Rape Seeders come in several different models, with the entry model at 3m working width with 7 legs, the 4m with 9 legs and the 5m with 11 legs. All machines can come with either shearbolt or hydraulic leg to prevent damage when the legs hit immovable objects.

  • 3m rigid with 7 legs - mounted.
  • 4m hydraulic folding with 9 legs - trailed.
  • 5m hydraulic folding with 11 legs - trailed.
