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.
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 key 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.
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.
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.
