Have you been using the drill straight into undisturbed stubble? I have ordered an ld topsoiler off weaving to use with our carrier and kuhn megant.View attachment 854022
Currently running 3 row version, pleased with the disturbance considering it's an all round drill. 6m takes some lifting but tractor uses 6l/ha when drilling cereal/rape in to stubble and 9l/ha for beans at 4inches in to stubble. First year with the drill and haven't managed to give it a fair test but pleased considering the conditions. Have ordered the new 4 row model but keeping this one till we have other one on farm.

The old style does take some lifting, doesnt take a lot of pulling just need that lift capacityI looked saw the new sabre tine at Lamma. Looks a good well made drill but as said it does seem heavy. The brackets on the front are potentially for cutting discs I was told by Weaving salesman.
Did you not have a Sumo / Metcalf LD subsoiler or have I made that up in my head? Just wondering what the benefit of the Topsoiler would be over it?Have you been using the drill straight into undisturbed stubble? I have ordered an ld topsoiler off weaving to use with our carrier and kuhn megant.
Blocked with what? What were you drilling into?
Has anyone seen the new Sabre Tine in the flesh? Does it look as though it will cope any better with chopped straw?
Did you manage to drill much, how heavy is she APJ?View attachment 857130
First outing with our new sabre tine, very impressed so far only done 30ac in to some stocky soils and it’s buried the seed well and with 6195r Deere in front 10k forward speed is very comfortable, very simple drill hope to use it mostly direct this year, it is heavy that’s for sure.
Keep us posted, looks like it could be a useful tool with no packer roller to bung up. Still not sure if its best to move more or less soil when conditions are a little less than ideal.
