Extending its range of mounted drills, strip-tillage specialists Claydon drills has introduced two new rigid 4m machines to the Hybrid series.
The M4RF features a dual 2,100-litre hopper with a 50:50 seed/fertiliser split, allowing fertiliser to applied at the time of seed. Growers can choose to apply fertiliser either below the seed on the front leading tine or above the seed on the seeding tine or the new LD low disturbance twin tine.
There is also the option of splitting the fertiliser between the front and seeding tines.
The M4R is a seed only model, with a hopper capacity of 1,750 litres. Both units feature the Claydon leading tine and seven-inch A share as standard, together with shear bolt stone protection, a rear double toolbar with metal boards and following tines for seedbed levelling and consolidation.
Optional extras include seed and fertiliser blockage sensors, pre-emergence markers and bout markers.
Standard fitment includes GPS speed sensing, electronically driven metering systems and a four-channel drill computer, which makes it possible to add up to extra applicators for micro granules and slug pellets.
A complete range of seeding share, tine and disc options is offered on both drills, including the latest LD Low Disturbance kits. This comprises a twin tine and single, or double, cutting disc and be swapped with the standard Claydon setup in a matter of minutes, according to the company.
The M4R and M4RF Hybrids have a recommended minimum power requirement of 200hp and are priced at £43,255 and £54,995 respectively for a standard specification machine.
