Pasture Disc Drill


The John Shearer Pasture Disc Drill is engineered to give consistent performance over many years and is suitable for sowing into light or heavy soils. It is an ideal drill for adding new life to your property and pastures by increasing carrying capacity and improving productivity.

The Pasture Disc Drill is available in four (4) sizes: 10 row - 1.8m (5'10") , 13 row - 2.3m (7'8") , 16 row - 2.9m (9'6") and 19 row - 3.4m 11'3") and as a 3 point linkage or trailed machine.

The single disc/boot assemblies cut a narrow slot into which seed and fertilizer is sown with minimal disturbance to the soil surface. The breast cut of the discs is adjustable to vary the width of the sowing slot and each stump jump disc assembly is spring adjustable, with the option of double springs if required for sowing into heavier conditions.

Disc seeding maintains soil firmness that would be lost in a prepared seed bed and is a once over economical operation.

Remember when you invest in a John Shearer Drill, you invest in strength, reliability and in an implement that really holds its value year after year.
