VACUUM PRECISION PLANTER (corn - sunflower - soybean - sugar beet)

The SP SPRINT model is equipped with a fixed frame having variable width depending on the required number of rows and the row width.The SP seeding unit for precision seeding on tilled soil is the result of years of experience and development by Gaspardo. The SP seeding  unit is easy to use, constantly reliable and highly accurate. The unit is available in a number of configurations and with different kinds of frames (fixed, telescoping or folding) to meet the various requirements of different crops. The unit is especially recommended for sowing on tilled soils without crop residues on the ground. The seeding furrow is made by a drill coulter and the seeding depth is set by a parallelogram system between the frame and the rear wheel, which can be adjusted by a mechanical jack. The pressure applied by the seeding unit on the ground is controlled by a spring.

Easy and precise fertilization Open Close


Easy and precise fertilization

The MINIMAX volumetric distributor can easily set up and permits the delivery of a wide range of rates (from 50 to 700 kg/ha - from 55 to 770 lb/ac), maintaining at the same time high the distribution accuracy.

Accurate sowing Open Close


Accurate sowing

The vacuum metering system permits a very accurate singulation even with uneven size and irregular shape seeds. The two singulators and the short seed drop increase the sowing accuracy.

The vacuum fun is driven by the PTO shaft as standard or it can be hydraulically driven as optional.

Adjustable transmission wheels (optional) Open Close


Adjustable transmission wheels (optional)

The transmission wheels are adjustable upward and downward following the soil profile. By this optional planter can work on raised soils typical, for example, of horticulture crop systems.

PTO shaft drive Open Close

PTO shaft drive

Forget chains, lubrication and dust wear. No fear while working on many residues, corn stalks can’t damage it. The PTO shaft drive guarantees an even seed plate rotation with no maintenance needed. Maximum reliability with user friendly operation! Electric clutch shut-off system to disengage distribution units transmission from tractor cab through the monitor system is available as optional.

Planting unit configuration

Many configurations are available to adapt the seeding units to different soils and crops. FARMFLEX press wheels are recommended in sandy soils while in compact-dry and tough-wet soils 2” V and 1” V wheels are suggested respectively.

For small seeds (sugarbeet and rapeseed), SP planting unit is equipped with counter-acting front and rear wheels rocker arm design to increase consistency of planting depth.

The SP planting unit is the result of the decennial experience of Gaspardo. The SP seeding unit is recommended for sowing on tilled soils with few crop residues on the surface. The seeding furrow is made by a drill coulter and the seeding depth is set by a parallelogram system between the frame and rear wheel, adjustable by a mechanical jack.
