The Sabre Drill has made low disturbance crop establishment simple and intuitive since its launch, offering precise placement of seed while avoiding trash blockages and unnecessary downtime.
The new and revamped version makes several key adjustments, all serving to make the Sabre Drill even more accessible and powerful for everyday use. Following intense development and testing, new features include:
- Revamped and easier calibration process
- Relocated depth wheels that bring the weight closer to the tractor
- Hydraulic depth control instead of manual adjustment
- Side-to-side rolling pivot for more precise contouring
- Ability to handle large quantities of trash
- Simple depth adjustment of the seeding coulter

The new Sabre Drill builds on the exceptional previous version of this popular seed drill, to create the next great product in crop establishment, capable of tackling cultivation systems of all sizes and challenges.

Simple calibration
Calibration is simple and quick using the single point discharge chute and screw adjustable metering mechanism. The corrosion-proof metering unit is maintenance free and will maintain its accuracy season after season. Complete discharge of the hopper is made quick and easy with the emptying hatch. Calibration has now been greatly improved with the two-piece toolbar fold making access to the metering unit virtually unhindered.

Rapid sowing depth control
Field conditions, seed types and varieties can change and the Weaving Sabre drill working depth can be altered quickly to match. The ability to raise and lower the depth wheels hydraulically removes the need for strenuous manual adjustment, giving you more precise control over the drilling depth and your farming strategy.

Hydraulic fan
The Sabre Drill is fitted with a hydraulic 6” fan as standard. This reduces the RPM on the tractor, which reduces fuel costs, gives more flexibility with air flow, and helps prevent wear and tear on the tractor body.

Standard Specification
4 rows of 12mm tines with tungsten tips and stainless-steel adjustable seed tubes. 2,000L hopper and tank sieve, colour touch screen RDS iSOCAN controls with GPS forward speed monitoring, wide floatation wheels, hydraulic depth control, wheel eradicators, a double row of following “z” harrows and LED road and work lights, all within a transport width of 3.0 Metres.

Why the Sabre Drill?

Andrew Thomas - Herefordshire

Why did we choose Weaving’s Sabre Drill? We made the move after our previous disc drill couldn’t handle wet conditions. Seeing what the Sabre Drill could do, it was a no-brainer. It really makes precise crop establishment simple.

It’s done a great job so far. We went with the 4800M model. The output is unbelievable, you can cover a lot of ground and the pivoting wings follow the contours nicely. The crops all look well. I can’t fault the Sabre Drill really. It’s so cheap to run and, in today’s world, that matters.

I’ve drilled any time from August right up until December in quite heavy soils. No matter what the conditions are, we can always get on and drill. We can also combine the Sabre Drill with other equipment to fully lean into low disturbance crop establishment, so we’re ready to meet all the new environmental management requirements.

So far, the Sabre Drill has been brilliant. It’s excellent value for just how powerful and low cost to run it is, and can do the same job as other drills, if not even better.
