Air Seeding Accuracy with the Versatility of an All-Purpose Opener
The Sunflower 9000 Series Air Seeder line combines air seeding accuracy with the industry's most proven All-Purpose heads up opener. This combination not only delivers the industry's most accurate seeding machine, but it provides valuable flexibility when seeding in varying field conditions.
Built to Sunflower standards, the 9000 Series Air Seeder line is designed to handle conventional seeding in even the toughest no-till situations with minimal changes. The 9000 Series Air Seeder from Sunflower incorporates several design features that help you become more productive while providing you the security of seeding accuracy.
The 7" x 7" main frame with 3" x 5" subframes help to maintain consistent depth control in min-till or no-till conditions.
Heavy duty 3/8" thick 7" x 7" main frames are coupled to a 3/8" thick 3" x 5" opener frame to create a sound foundation for the Sunflower Air Drills.
8" of opener stagger allows crop residue to flow through and not gather within.
Allows crop residue to flow through the openers and not gather within. All Sunflower Air Seeders feature a full 8" of front to rear opener stagge
High efficiency air system that provides a low horsepower draw from tractor.
A high efficiency air system design utilizes a 13" diameter fan that provides a low horsepower draw from the tractor hydraulics.
An exclusive Posi-Drive Transmission uses a positive lock on all drive sprockets to deliver smooth and reliable metering. A positive drive wheel compensates for any change in ground speed, ensuring precise product rates at all times.
Centrally located controls allow the operator to safely fold and unfold the seeding unit from behind the air cart.
Accuracy & performance are just a glance away with these simple and easy-to-read monitors. Features include: fan speed, ground speed, meter shaft rotation, bin level, field acres seeded, total acres seeded and calibrated seeding rate per acre. Moisture proof connections on the systems SMART SENSORS ensure reliable operation.
Patented flat fan divider head eliminates abrupt flow changes of conventional vertical divider heads.
Spiral fluted metering wheels gently roll product into the air stream at a constant flow.
Accuracy is the key and that is why Sunflower utilizes unique spiral fluted metering wheels that gently roll product into the air stream in a constant flow. This provides a distinct contrast to the uneven dumping of straight fluted metering wheels. Our metering wheels are made from a durable polymer that ensures long life. Sunflower's metering wheels can handle a variety of seed sizes from wheat to large beans, as well as fertilizer, without changing metering wheels.
All-Purpose opener features easy to reach settings for varying field conditions. All openers can be reset for varying field conditions in a matter of minutes with no tools.
The All-Purpose opener design gently delivers the seed to its final resting place while providing longer bearing and blade life. Let the new All-Purpose "Heads Up" openers penetrate your seeding problems and deliver an answer of higher yields and longer life. Sunflower really is "Seeding Quality".
Competitions Non-Pivoting Press Wheels Plants emerge in the ridge, not under press wheel tracks. Poor and late emergence are the results.
Sunflower Pivoting Press Wheels Precisely follow the opener path and produce a favorable seed to soil contact. Plants emerge under press wheel tracks.
Improved emergence and enhanced yields are the results.
With Sunflower patented Soil Control Device, soil is directed back into seed trench and firmed by press wheels. Results are even emergence and improved yields. Soil controlling devices minimize soil blow out from opener blades, both in no-till or conventional seedbeds. Soil controlling devices are made of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polymer for prolonged life. UHMW is backed by spring steel to guard against bending.
Sunflower offers five different choices of press wheels to complete your grain drill. The precision cam adjustment allows the single arm swivel type press wheel to be adjusted in 1/4" increments. Adjustments can be made fast and easy, without the use of tools.
