Bourgault Farm Coulter Drill FMS™

Double tap to zoom



The I Series Frame Mounted Seeder™ is a highly configurable seeding system that is designed with the same proven Bourgault ingenuity found on its ParaLink Coulter Drills™ and 9000 I Series Air Carts. The list of seeding capabilities is long. How you combine them to meet your needs is up to you!

The Bourgault ParaLink™ coulter drill is comprised of long-lasting components on a heavy, durable frame that features either the ParaLink Walking™ Opener or the ParaLink Row™ Opener.

THE PLR™ Opener
The PLR™ Opener is designed to work with the tried-and-true PDM Pro™ Volumetric Metering System and the optional Air Planter™ System.

  • Developed in conjunction with the Air Planter™ Product Delivery System, the PLR™ offers Producers the distinct advantage to seed and plant with the same implement!
  • The durability and ingenuity built into the PLR™ Opener makes it longer lasting and easier to set than the competition. Get more seasons from the wearing components such as the coulter or the scraper boot with the Bourgault PLR™ Opener.


The PLW™ Opener
The ParaLink Walking™ Coulter Opener achieves precise seed placement while maintaining seedbed integrity. The walking action between the cleaner and gauge wheel, both of which set the seed depth, minimizes the effects of a rough surface or old seed rows on seeding depth

Two available seed boot options are:

  • the low disturbance LDx™ Seed Boot; and,
  • the DW™ Seed Boot for heavy residue.


The FMS™ Air Seeder Tank is designed with the same proven ingenuity and features found on the large Bourgault 9000 I Series air cart tanks

Independent Tanks
The CD9120 FMS™ is comprised of two individual tanks with volumes of 125 bu (front tank) and 175 bu (rear tank).

An optional 50 bu Wing™ Tank is also available for added volume flexibility.

Individual Tank Scales
Load cells on each individual tank provide accurate on-the-go weight monitoring and DynaCal™ Live Rate Monitoring to dynamicallly calibrate.

PDM Pro™ Metering System
The hydraulically driven PDM Pro™ provides the highest degree of metering accuracy while still providing gentle seed handling; expect an even and consistent metering of any product down to as low as 6 cups product remaining!

EvenStreamPLUS™ Distribution System
The EvenStreamPLUS™ Distribution System provides outstandingly consistent product distribution, even at challenging rates.

Series III Mid Row Bander® Fertilizer Applicators achieve the best possible returns by placing your nitrogen fertilizer in the optimal location when one-pass seeding.

Optimal Seed-To-Fertilizer Placement
When and where it makes sense to do so, the ability to apply all inputs in a single pass with fertilizer applied mid row between every second seed row using a coulter-based system allows for many advantages, some of these include:

  1. minimal disruption to the seedbed allowing for greater ability to precisely place your seed, as well as less wear and tear on your equipment (and back) when seeding across last year's furrows;
  2. increased efficiency which saves precious time and resources;
  3. placing highly mobile toxic fertilizer mid row positions seed and fertilizer for optimal nutrient uptake by the developing seedling (resulting in even emergence);
  4. allows you to place your mobile/toxic fertilizer deep enough to eliminate volatilization. From a practical perspective, containing as much of your fertilizer as possible and eliminating waste makes cents.



Expand Your Seeding Window
The HF™ option allows you to get into the field sooner, providing your crop with an early start. In addition, HF™ provides you with confidence when traversing challenging or restrictive terrain such as soft and narrow roads.

Achieve Unprecedented Seeding Control

The X35 Apollo System, with the Xtend™ remote tablet ability, provides the most advanced control and monitoring capabilities for your seeding system. In addition to controlling base seeding operations, the X35 offers full rate control and monitoring capabilities, and time saving applications, all at your fingertips.

The ISO Apollo System Calibrate and perform basic rate control functions for up to 4 products with tractors equipped with universal terminals.

Seed or Plant with One System! (PLR™ Opener required)
The Air Planter™ Option with bulk fill and multiple crop packages allows you to plant or seed with one system!

  • The Air Planter™ sets new standards for planting capability and productivity with the ability to: direct plant into heavy residue in no-till scenarios, while seed placing phosphate fertilizer and banding nutrients like nitrogen and sulfur mid row in a one pass operation.
  • With the Bourgault Air Planter™ you can plant corn on one field and seed wheat on the next! Why buy a planter and a small grains drill when the Bourgault Air Planter™ can effectively accomplish both!



  • Paddle Conveyor

with infeed belt for efficient & gentle transfer of product.

Surge Brakes
automatically apply appropriate levels of braking to greatly reduce the potential of implement damage as well as Operator stress.

Rear-view Camera
allows you to monitor traffic behind the air seeder tank when transporting to the next seeding location.

Exterior Led Lights
allow for greater visibility when seeding at night.

Large Tires
for decreased compaction & increased flotation.

GaugeMaster™ (PLR™ Opener & X35)
option provides automatic gauge wheel pressure adjustment to ensure the desired seed depth is achieved in highly variable conditions.

PackMaster™ (PLW™ Opener & X35)
option provides automatic packing pressure adjustment as soil conditions change, providing more uniform results and even germination.

LiftMaster™ (X35)
is an optional feature that, when set will automatically lift the openers when the seeding system crosses into the headlands.
