Weaving sabre tine user thread

Really pleased with our sabretine drilled spring wheat . We had a nice level over winter stale seedbed that dried very evenly this spring and allowed us to start drilling quite early. The seed depth behind the drill always seem pretty random but has again proved not to be a problem. Fuel consumption this spring has been very low as the majority of our fields have just had one pass with the drill and then rolled .

Looks great, our spring wheat looks good as well apart from a few annoying patches of bg

Due to all the good feedback about the sabre.
I have currently ordered a new sabre tine.
But I’m pondering if to have the front tank model. As I have very wet lying clays. So wheeling can be a problem especially on the headlands.
I run a fendt 722 on rear 650 tyres with a 1200 kg weight on front.
Also, I only have ever used a power harrow combi behind ploughs and a simba solo.
what’s everyone’s thoughts?
Ps I don’t want duels 😵💫

I run a 6m steel tank model on a VF710/70r42 shod 215r with 1500kg on the front, yes it’s heavy but it’s manageable. When they were here demoing I asked about a front tank sabre and Simon told me they weren’t planning to make them as the seed bar needed the weight of the hopper to make them perform properly… so what do they release 6 months after I bought mine 🤦‍♂️ Anyway I am where I am and the reality is it was probably for the best due to how many times the drill can go on and off in a day

but the GDs weak point is it won’t get beans deep enough and the coulters block on beans
The GD is the perfect spring bean drill for me, puts them in around 2.5" deep, no chance of rooks getting them because of the angled slot. The odd blockage issue I've had is down to me being a cheap skate and home saving off the heap. I could see winter beans might be different though.

Definitely I would obviously it is a financial premium but gives you options going forward. I run a twin outlet Horsch front tank and have a weaving GD backend or a home developed tined backend and swop between the 2 depending on application and have a subsoiler rigged up with an up stack head and pipes for subsoiler seeding tape for a contracting client.

Front tank without a doubt, if your going to have weight at the front it may as well be seed .

That looks a mighty fine setup. I wondering though, if my little fendt 724 would not be balanced when there’s hardly any seed in the hopper or when sowing OSR for example
I’m sure you would be fine on a 724 although I think Weavings front hopper is big compared to other makes . Both our hoppers are home built and hold 1.5ton and that is plenty.
This one is on a fendt 720 and it looks huge .

The front tank option is around a 7 grand option. Which seems quite good value.

Two more questions:

Is it possible to save time, by keeping the front tank on while taking off the sabre tine off with all the pipes and wires, To go cultivating for example.

Does anyone with the front tank struggle to get the tines to penetrate the ground enough without the extra weight of the seed box.
