iPaddock Alpha disc 2018 seeding units
The benefits of discs with the simplicity of tines. Direct upgrade option for the 1890 model John Deere disc seeder frame and other similar machines.
The unique dual row Alpha disc units offer a low cost, low maintenance option for high productivity and narrow row spacings, and will retrofit directly onto John Deere 1890 model disc seeders, at about half the price of other disc seeding row units. For not much more than the cost of rebuilding your John Deere disc seeder units, you can now fit an all new set of Alpha discs for years of trouble free operation, while doing a better job of planting your crop, year in, year out.
Each row on the Alpha disc has a rippled disc governed by a load bearing press wheel to accurately place seeds into a firm, well shaped furrow, without the big issues of mud blockages common on gauge wheel disc seeders. The standard dual row Alpha disc units have 2 discs spaced at 190mm (7.5″), which dramatically lowers the cost of having narrow row spacings (for improved yields and weed competition). The unique Alpha disc dual row system also means every disc can be mounted on a single rank, eliminating the serious issue of the rear row backfilling the front row, as happens with conventional 2 row disc seeders.
Seeding with discs can increase productivity by 50% with the same size machine, but conventional disc seeders are notorious for reliability and chemical issues in Australian conditions. Alpha Disc is the solution to these issues.
Australian designed by iPaddock‘s Mic Fels, and built in Canada using the latest Aeon suspension technology, Alpha Disc units are now available as bolt on modules to suit standard 4″ (100mm) tool bars.
