Product Description

Drill with minimal disturbance, into heavy residue and cover crop

The Saxon CDA Drill is a unique, low disturbance cultivator drill developed for the latest establishment techniques.

The Saxon mirrors the looks of Great Plains’ Centurion cultivator drill and shares all of its key features around seed delivery, seed placement and consolidation. However, the Saxon differs from its sister drill in one key area.

Instead of incorporating angled notched cultivation discs within their base specification all Saxon drills incorporate Great Plains’ innovative zonal cultivation and seeding technology. This technology equips the Saxon with the patented Great Plains Turbo Coulter, which is designed to meet the need for minimal disturbance and, if required, for cutting through and drilling into high volumes of residue.

The full width tyre packer not only offers consolidation but also ensures even weight distribution across the full width of the drill.

Product Features

Seeding System = Zonal Cultivation

This technology ensures that every seed sown is placed at the optimum depth in an ideal environment to facilitate consistently even germination and it is an integral part of the specification of our widely acclaimed and highly successful direct drills.

Fertiliser Models

All working widths are available with fertilizer variants designed to promote the best possible start for young seedlings particularly in the spring, which is crucial to optimizing output for spring crops.

Interchangeable Discs

A unique feature of Centurion and Saxon drills is the interchangeability of the respective disc sets enabling the Turbo Coulter discs of the Saxon to be changed on farm for the notched discs of the Centurion and vice versa. This effectively gives the user two drills in one and extends the capability of the drill – a major benefit for contractors and owners of larger farming enterprises who may have different crop establishment needs across their business. Exchanging the disc assemblies is a relatively simple job for two people.

Seed Metering
Seed Metering

Great Plains CDA drills are bristling with clever ideas and proven technologies all brought together in a highly efficient and fully integrated system with the primary focus on delivering consistently outstanding seed placement accuracy.

Seed tube design promotes even germination.

Safe, easy and convenient seed calibration
OPERATOR FRIENDLY SEED CALIBRATION

With seed calibration mode selected from the cab, the operator simply walks to the rear of the drill where a dedicated pipe delivers the metered amount.

Weigh Cells

Under the hopper three highly accurate weigh cells (optional) automatically adjust the hydraulic down pressure on the wings to maintain consistent working depth across the full width of the machine. As the drill empties, the pressure is automatically reduced. Without weigh cells, wing down pressure is controlled via the terminal.

Tramlines and blockage sensors

Thoughtfully designed distribution heads with built-in tramline shut-offs and optional seed flow sensors accurately deliver seed to each coulter. Each row unit can be isolated and switched off manually.

Monitors

Data capture and display options for the ISOBUS ready CDA family of drills include the Müller Basic Terminal and the larger 10-inch Müller Elektronik Comfort Terminal.

00 Series Opener

00 Series Openers are designed for reduced tillage, fluted feed drills. The 00 opener features 330mm x 4mm offset double disc blades mounted on 205 triple lip sealed bearings. Coulter spacing is set at 167mm for optimum performance when seeding in all conditions ensuring the perfect environment for the plant. A rear depth-controlling gauge wheel uses a T-handle adjuster with 18 depth settings.
