BLEC Culti-Pack Seeder

The BLEC range of Culti-Pack Seeders has been designed to mount on to standard-type power tillers or two-wheeled tractors. The equipment is intended for primary seeding and actually incorporates the grass seed into the top soil.
First, the twin front cast iron rollers, with serrated rings that penetrate the soil, pass over the ground to leave a pattern of ridges and small indentations to a depth of about 20mm. Next, a rear seeder unit with a seed hopper evenly spreads the seed at a pre-determined rate into and around the small pockets in the soil. Finally, a rear ring roller splits the ridges and presses down the seed into the soil. This ensures all seeds are in contact with soil and moisture – ideal for germination.
The seeding rate is set by an adjustable cam gauge and lever fitted to the rear of the hopper. A blanking strip is provided to catch seed when calibrating rates.
Our tester quickly learned that the best way to move forward is to let initial traction take place and then step in to the footplate. With an action reminiscent of riding a child’s scooter, he began each run.
