The Concord¬Æ Precision Shank Drill isn‚Äôt your typical hoe drill. That‚Äôs because its award-winning design can operate at speeds of 8 miles per hour (12.9 kph) or more without bunching up residue or throwing soil on top of neighboring rows. Add in a low maintenance design and working widths up to 61.5 feet (18.7 m), and that equals more acres per day than any competitive unit.
THE HIGHEST SEEDBED UTILIZATION
Each opener is spaced 15" apart, allowing maximum flexibility in seedbed utilization. Choose the popular dual-placement opener to create 6.5"/8.5" paired rows, resulting in an average row spacing of 7.5" across the unit, with each row 2" wide for improved plant spacing. An optional ribbon seeding opener puts down a 5- to 7-inch-wide (13 to 18 cm) ribbon of seed and fertilizer for up to 47-percent seedbed utilization ‚Äî much higher than typical drills.
HIGH SPEED OPERATION
The Precision Shank Drill is able to operate at high speeds, thanks to the unique design of the closing discs. They capture all of the soil that is displaced by the seed opener, preventing soil from being thrown over neighboring rows and ensuring uniform seed covering from row to row at any speed. By running at 8 miles per hour or more, the Precision Shank Drill is capable of covering more acres per day than wider hoe drills that are limited to 5 miles per hour or less.
