Precision Vacuum Vegetable Planters
We offer a range of vacuum planters that provide the level of precision that high-profit growing operations demand.
Models are available for small and large vegetable seeds as well as a variety of bed configurations.
V-5 Vegetable Planter
The V5 Gaspardo has all the features of the V20 with the addition of two or three movable metering units. This feature allows you to plant up to three lines of crop from one planter chassis. The minimum spacing between lines is 2″ and the maximum spacing is 6″. The same fan, drive wheels, and toolbar as used on the V12 and V20 are used on the V5. The Gaspardo Planters are ordered with stainless steel press wheels; however, other press wheels are available as optional equipment.
V-12 Vegetable Planter
The V-12 is a precision vacuum planter that is designed for the small grower or for semi-high density plantings. The rows will mount on 5″ centers, while the fan has the capacity to handle up to 12 planters. The ground drive wheel is fixed, but an adjustable wheel is available to fit a full range of bed heights. The drive wheel transmission provides 30 different seed spacings from one seed disc. This planting package comes complete with rows of planter, 3 pt. hitch, toolbar, seed vac to empty the hoppers, hose, and one set of seed plates.
V-20 Vegetable Planter
The V20 is a precision vacuum planter designed for metering small seeds. The rows will mount on 8″ centers. The Gaspardo metering unit gives a high degree of accuracy because the seeds pass two adjustable singulators. Hand crank depth from 0″ to 2″. The multi-barbed manifold eliminates much of the vacuum and air hoses. Adjustable height ground drive wheel allows 30 spacings from one seed plate. The vacuum can be driven by PTO shaft or hydraulic motor.
