Front Tank Sabre

Weaving Machinery has launched a new Front Tank Sabre to further extend the Sabre offering for their farmers. The Front Tank Sabre boasts many benefits to enhance performance, including better weight distribution, a sleek stainless steel double metering unit, higher output capabilities, a two-ton capacity, and extra “quality of life” features like front row lights and built-in cameras to assist pulling out at junctions.

Standard Spec

The Sabre Toolbar: 4 rows of 12mm tines with tungsten tips and stainless steel adjustable seed tubes, 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. 

The Front Tank: 2400 litre capacity, RDS ISOCAN Controls with GPS forward speed sensor, Robust metal lid, Front step for operator access, Forklift Slots, Operator toolbox, HD camera system, Dipped/high beam headlights based on 7 pin plugs, Cat 2/3N linkage, Metering units as used on Sabre and GD drills, One button calibration.

As per the Sabre Drill, the Front Tank Sabre makes low disturbance crop establishment simple and intuitive since 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 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 


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.


Field conditions, seed types and varieties can change and the Weaving Sabre Tine 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.
