    Bourgault duck foot sweeps

    I'm running a Horsch Terrano with Bourgault 7 inch wide duckfoot points but i am only getting around 70 acres before they are worn out. They are made by Blue Armour. Is there a similar point available but with tungsten grafted on to make them last longer ?

    Dutch Coulters roll pins

    Does anyone know the size of roll pin required? Just fitted a set of points to an 8 metre Sprinter . 2 nd time up the field and 3 coulters have fallen off. The hole measures just slightly less than 7 mm but I can only find roll pins in 6 or 8 mm! BB

    What point for CO4?

    So I've brought a CO4 to work alongside my Rapid. I've decided to go for either Dutch or Bourgault (I'm leaning towards Dutch). But don't really know which point to go for. So we are blackgrass free so not so worried about disturbance. The CO4 has a liquid fert kit on it so I want to utilise...

    Will a Challenger 775E be ok on this drill, using 3” Bourgault points? Undulations rather than hills. BB

    Claydon/Bourgault for destroying cover crop?

    TIA for any help. As an organic farmer I’m playing catch-up with cover crops but think they would be a huge advantage if I can bring them into my system. But no glyphosate...... So I‘m looking into terminating cover crops mechanically, trying to avoid ploughing. See some people are rolling in...

    Dutch or VOS

    We were given a couple of VOS coulters to try this year beside our Dutch coulters. Unfortunately the weather demanded that most of the drilling was done with our Claydon and the Borgault didn’t get tested. The Dutch points on our Sprinter are just about ready to be changed. Is there a benefit...

    Horsch duett coulters drilling depth issue

    Having laboriously drilled thousands of acres over the last 35 years with various power harrow/drill configurations, we've bit the bullet this year and bought a s/hand horsch sprinter on duett coulters. To say I'm dissappointed is an understatement. We know very little about how these things are...
