EFFICIENCY & DURABILITY
A Choice for Every Producer
Expect the highest degree of durability with a robust frame construction that makes competitors green with envy.

  • The heavier built Bourgault 2-row, 5" x 5" frame achieves superior penetration where other units ride up.
  • The robust construction ensures the frame will perform reliably in the rough agricultural work environment year after year.

 

PARALINK ROW™ OPENER

The ParaLink Row™ Opener (PLR™) provides two very distinct advantages in today's coulter drill market.

  • 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 HI-FLOTATION™ OPTION
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.

AIR PLANTER™ CONFIGURATION
The PLR™ Opener is designed to work in conjunction with the optional positive pressure Air Planter™ System. The same opener is also compatible with the proven PDM Pro™ Metering Auger and air kit to provide accurate and consistent seed placement for cereals, pulses and oil seed crops.

VOLUMETRIC CONFIGURATION
When operating as a traditional air coulter drill, product from the air kit exits the seeder boot and is directed to the bottom of the furrow with a plastic seed retainer, eliminating the opportunity for seed bounce. The seed is then pressed into the seedbed by the firming wheel, ensuring excellent seed-to-soil contact.

ROW SPACING OPTIONS

Volumetric Configuration

  • Seed on 7½", 10", or 12" row spacing.
  • Available with hydraulic opener lockouts for seeding on 15", 20", or 24" rows respectively.

 

Air Planter™ Configuration

  • Plant on 15", 20", or 24" row crop spacing.
  • Narrow row planting under development.

 

MRB® FERTILIZER APPLICATION SYSTEM
Optimal Seed-To-Fertilizer Placement
Series III Mid Row Banders® Fertilizer Applicators achieve the best possible returns by placing your nitrogen fertilizer in the optimal location when one-pass seeding.

Applicators are available in two formats:

  • Mid Row Bander® Fertilizer Applicators;
  • Mid Row Shank™ Fertilizer Applicators.

Availability varies on drill types and sizes.

POWERPLUS™ OPTION
Independent Electrical Supply
The new PowerPlus™ option provides independent electrical supply to the air seeding system, eliminating the need for a high current harness back to the tractor. PowerPlus combines an alternator, battery, and hydraulic motor powered by a dedicated hydraulic circuit, and is sized appropriately to minimize hydraulic requirements yet provide full electrical needs of a drill and air cart.
