New Weaving 8 Metre GD Drill at Cereals

New 8m GD drill launches at Cereals – celebrating 20 years of no-till drills from Weaving Machinery.

Weaving Machinery will be unveiling its new 8m version of the no-till Weaving GD Drill at Cereals 2018 – with the first view of the machine exclusively on stand 585. The GD8000T is being kept under wraps until day one of Cereals, when Weaving Machinery will be celebrating 20 years of no-till drills.
The new drill has been manufactured to meet customer demand for a wider drill whilst improving their soil structure and crop establishment.
The drill is designed for zero-tillage systems but works within conventional cultivation regimes when required. This new size is designed to cover large areas more quickly, making it easier than ever to reduce costs.
Interest in no-till farming has significantly increased after Michael Gove, Environment Secretary, spoke of possibly incentivising farms to adopt no-till farming through subsidies after Brexit. Many farmers have also heralded the time saved by adopting no-till systems – and the subsequent reduction in time and fuel costs.

“Weaving Machinery aims to make conservation agriculture simple,” says Simon Weaving, Sales Manager at Weaving Machinery. “This new drill has all the technology larger farms need to preserve their soil structure – all while keeping the farmer in control and protecting their bottom line.”

Weaving Machinery debuts brand new LD Top-Soiler

Weaving Machinery debuts brand new LD Top-Soiler

Weaving Machinery’s new ultra-low disturbance LD Top-Soiler will be launched at LAMMA in January.

The mounted LD Top-Soiler’s heaving action relieves compaction in the top 9” (228mm).

“The new LD Top-Soiler is perfect for anyone with a no-till or min-till system,” says Simon Weaving, Sales at Weaving Machinery. “But equally the LD can be effective to reduce compaction in conventional systems. We’ve designed it to lift the soil while maintaining profile structure, to help preserve soil nutrients and retain moisture. The narrow spacing of the carbide-tipped loosening legs allows soil movement across the full width of the machine.”


The mounted Weaving LD Top-Soiler is constructed from high grade steel with a heavy-duty frame, carbide faced loosening legs and lifting wings, and shear bolt leg protection. The LD Top-Soiler has working depths of 0” – 9” (0mm – 228mm) with pin hole depth adjustment in 1” increments.


“LAMMA is often considered the show to see newest machinery, which is why we’re launching the LD Top-Soiler there” adds Simon. “Come and see us on the Weaving Machinery stand”.

Updated Trailed GD Drill to be launched at Cereals

Cereals 2016 will see the launch of Weaving Machinery’s updated and improved zero-till Drill.

After a hugely successful first year in the field the GD Drill has provided several solutions to current cereal production issues including volunteer control, establishment costs and the ability to drill into standing crops in a variety of seed beds. To complement the coulter design improvements have been made throughout the trailed seed hopper.

The refreshed design sees the seed hopper capacity increasing to 2.85 Tons allowing operators to drill for longer between stops, a new and improved easy access hopper cover has been developed adding to the usability of the drill. Aware of farmers concerns over soil structure and health, Weaving’s have fitted as standard the new generation Mitas Agriterra 02 tyres to the trailed GD models to help alleviate compaction and wheeling’s. Able to run at lower working pressures and with a wider footprint the new tyres handle the increased weight of the hopper capacity without impeding on soil health. A new streamlined variable front weight block allows operators to match the balance of the machine to the tractor and also incorporates an integral toolbox and hopper access steps finishing off the improvements to the drill.

Refinements to the GD Coulter have been delivered in the form of a new operator friendly seed tube. If coulter blockages arise the seed tube is detached from the disc coulter within seconds to reduce machine down time in the field.

A GD6000T will be on show along with the mounted GD3000M on stand 500 at the Cereals Event.


GD Open Day

After a successful autumn campaign with the GD Drill Weaving Machinery in conjunction with Tony Reynolds held an Open Day at Thurlby Grange Farm Nr Bourne, Lincs to show customers from the UK and Northern France the benefits of No-till and low disturbance direct drilling. Tony Reynolds who currently has two trailed GD Drills explained why he has be ‘No-Tilling’ for over 15 years. Many points were raised throughout the day such as the use of a stripper header, reducing the use of chemicals and fertilisers and increasing worm population and organic matter within the soil. Over the course of the day 32 farmers learnt how Tony has managed to dramatically reduce his establishment costs as well as improve the overall health of the soil across both of his farms. The GD4800T was on hand to show customers the benefits of the simple GD coulter and the advantages of Avadex and Slug/Fertiliser applicators. The day finished off with lots of discussion about how no-till would work in varying soil types and conditions across the UK and France. Weaving Machinery will be demonstrating the GD Drill across the UK this spring for more information call 01386 49155

New 8 Metre Trailed Cultivator Launching at LAMMA 2016

New 8 Metre Trailed Cultivator from Weaving Machinery.

LAMMA 2016 will see the launch of Weaving’s Short Disc 8000T. To complement the existing and hugely successful Short Disc range, Weaving Machinery have recognised the need for a higher output model to maximise efficiency with their new 8 Metre model.

Currently in use across the UK this well recognised shallow cultivator is fast and economical to use, perfect for chitting weed-seeds and volunteers producing a level and uniformed finish. Weaving Machinery are pleased to promote the new larger model as rarely has the need for maximising efficiency and productivity been required more so than today.

Built for reliability and endurance, the Weaving Short Disc cultivators have a 12 month guarantee on non-wearing parts. The low maintenance requirement is a key feature with boron steel notched discs mounted on maintenance free fully sealed bearing hubs. The powder coating surface treatment inhibits corrosion and extends working life on all metal components.

Standard equipment for the Short Disc 8000T includes 64 scalloped boron discs followed by a full width ‘V’ ring roller. Transport lights, hydraulic brakes and BKT flotation tyres coupled with a compact 3 Metre transport width make this machine fully road compatible.

A modest power requirement of 250HP enables operators to match productivity against efficiency. High work rates are achievable whilst maintaining working depths between 1.2cm (1/2″) to 7.6cm (3″) .

The heavy duty, horizontally folding universal Tool Carrier allows operators to interchange implements to utilise the machine to its full capacity throughout the year.

The Short Disc 8000T will be available from January 2016 priced at £28,600 ex VAT.

New zero-till GD Drill to be launched at Cereals

Cereals 2015 will see the launch of Weaving Machinery’s new zero-till Drill. With over 20 years of experience of producing zero-tillage equipment the introduction of the new GD (Gent Disc) Drill brings a refreshing look to the tried and tested Big Disc Drill. Weaving Machinery has been working in conjunction with Lincolnshire farmer Tony Gent  to develop the new patented GD coulter and have arrived with a disc coulter design which satisfies all drilling systems. The new GD coulter provides remarkably low soil disturbance, has a very low draught requirement of 40HP per meter and has an excellent service life. The principal behind the GD coulter design is based on a double disc arrangement, mounted on a 25° angle off the vertical which is able to pivot around a central kingpin mounted within the coulter body. The larger leading outer disc cuts an opening slice in the soil whilst the smaller inner disc is in effect undermining the ‘upper’ side forming an opening for the seed to be placed precisely. The lifted wall of the soil is quickly firmed down onto the seed by the single press wheel. The press wheel also acts as a depth regulator for the disc coulters.  Drilling depth is adjusted by moving a single pin through a bank of holes with a depth range of 0-130mm in 15mm increments. Coulters are individually pressurised by a hydraulic system providing up to 200Kg of downwards pressure helping to maintain consistent contact with the ground and follow contours and undulations.

This refined design aided by an inter-row clearance of 1,000mm has resulted in a coulter that is able to work in extremely trashy conditions and cover crops without creating an opportunity for hair-pinning to arise. This adaptable system can be used on all cultivation systems and soil types.

The new GD coulter will be available in either a mounted or trailed format. Mounted zero-till machines will be a new addition to Weaving Machinery’s portfolio and will be available in widths from 3 to 4.8 Metres complete with a 1.2 Ton seed tank. Trailed variants will be offered to meet the demands of large farmers and contractors, available in working width of 4 to 8 Metres mounted on a Weaving’s existing 2.5 Ton seed cart.

All drills as standard will be fitted with RDS electronic metering, 6 coulters per meter at a minimum row spacing of 167mm (adjustable), roll over cover, tank sieve and work lights.

New Agrimaster Compact Range

New range of Compact Tractor Park and Garden
Maintenance Equipment.

Designed specifically for use with compact tractors from 15 to 35hp, the new range of Agrimaster mowers and trimmers is well suited to maintaining the appearance of large scale parks and gardens and associated grass areas.

Model XB. The new range includes the robust cat 1 three point linkage mounted XB in-line flail mowers with cutting widths of 132, 153 and 180cm. The XB range has a manual offsetting system to facilitate cutting outside the tractor width and tight against fences and walls. An adjustable full width 140mmØ rear roller controls the cutting height while leaving an attractive striped finish. The special “scoop” flails never need sharpening and give a clean cut while leaving the chopped material in an even carpet with no unsightly swath.

Ex works prices for the in line mowers:
XB 130 – £1,512 + VAT
XB 150 – £1,575 + VAT
XB 180 – £1,701 + VAT

Model XL. For mowing applications that include clearing ditches and siding of hedges, the new multi angle offsetting XL model is ideal. Matched to tractors of 700-900 kg, the 132, 153 and 180cm cutting width XLs can be positioned in a range of positions from directly behind the tractor to 2.36m offset from the centre of the tractor. This versatile XL range has a range of cutting head positions from vertical for hedge siding to 50° down for ditch mowing. It enjoys the same flail and roller benefits of the XB models. An hydraulic safety system protects the machine in the event of catching an obstruction.

Ex works prices for the XL offsetting mowers:
XL 130 – £2,412 + VAT
XL 150 – £2,790 + VAT
XL 180 – £2,970 + VAT

Giraffe. For a clean cut when light hedge trimming, the multi position Giraffe excels. The hydraulically powered 1.22m cutterbar will leave a clean cut finish on hedge growth up to 20mm thick. The articulated 2 arm construction allows trimming tight against the tractor for working in confined spaces or up to a maximum horizontal reach of 3.78m with the ability to reach over and trim the far side of most hedges. The light weight of the Giraffe of only 182kg makes it ideal for use with  tractors of down to 800kg. A tractor hydraulic output of 3 – 4l/m powers the cutterbar and the arm movements.

Ex works prices for the Giraffe:
1.2m cutter bar – £3,446 + VAT

Green Shark. For tractors of 1,000kg plus, the Green Shark flail hedge cutter range will trim hedges and mow ditches with its parallel action articulated arm.  The special “D” flails will cope with growth up to 25mm thick, leaving a shredded mulch that will decompose and eliminate the laborious task of clearing up. A mechanical safety breakaway device protects the arms from accidental damage. Precise positioning of the arms is made easy with the direct acting cable control system. A fully independent hydraulic system drives the cutting head and powers the arm movements for clean hands fitting and removal no risk of oil contamination.

Green Shark model:
320-80, 3.2m reach – 80cm cutting width – £4,320 + VAT
400-100, 4m reach – 100cm cutting width – £4,500 + VAT
500-120, 5m reach – 120cm cutting width – £5,760 + VAT
