Weaving sabre tine user thread

I am looking at moving from a system using a Trio followed by power harrow combi to a sabre tine, sometimes direct on to stubble and at other times following Trio cultivated land. My concern is that the cultivated land will not be level enough for the Sabre tine so a levelling cultivator will have to be used after the Trio. Any ideas on the best way to do this at low cost would be appreciated.
We used to do this albeit with a discaerator rather than trio. Simba toptilth/Galucho Tilthmaster; cheap as chips to buy and run. Hugely underrated in my opinion. Other option would be short disc of some description but cost would go up. As others have said; just go a notch deeper than you think you need and it will come up fine.

Thanks everyone sounds like it is not a big problem and I guess another cheap way to level things a bit would be to add some paddles or tines to the rollers and run that through before drilling. As mentioned the combi does leave a very level finish but does that mean extra yield, probably not.

Has anyone drilled hybrid rye with a sabre? Could you get a consistent enough seed depth direct or in to lightly disced land? It seems to have a rather specific depth requirement around 12mm (1/2”)

Well, I’m a Weaving new boy as of yesterday…

170 acres of drilling into linseed stubble later, I’m very impressed so far. Superb service from Weaving as a company, and nothing was any trouble for them.

Seed placement is excellent, and the extra width/output is welcome, although I think I’ll probably end up doing the same acres per day, but starting a couple of hours later, and getting home in time for supper!

I’m only using 25-28 lph of fuel which is less than I thought.

It certainly needs the two tonnes on the front; any less and I think it would struggle. When the seed tank is full, the lift arm hydraulics are a bit ‘steady’ until it empties a bit, but I think I have a cure for that.

I think my 19 hour drilling marathon days might be over now. :)

Glad your happy! Knew you’d be fine 👍👍👍

Anyone had problems with some of the tines twisting backwards by an inch or two. It wasn’t till we saw this we noticed that some of the brackets holding the rubber triangles were not completely tight. The trouble is some of the rubber mounts are now a bit deformed which doesn’t help. It hasn’t been on difficult ground at all this year.

Yes mine have all done it and had to move all the tines to their most forward setting to counter it .
I spoke to Weavings about it and the new drills have cylindrical rubbers which are supposed to hold their position better .

The tines behind the drill wheels are the main problem as they are hardly in the ground now .
Did I read on here earlier that someone had lengthened theses tines ?

Weaving do a longer bracket. Same leg and seed tube but the extended bracket drops the seed approx 25mm deeper. Works well. We did 3 each side this autumn and have ordered two more so a total of eight - four each side.
