Gaspardo started producing planting machines for delicate seed types in 1834! In 1950 they made their first precision drill and developed their first vacuum precision drills in 1972. Fast forward 50 years and Gaspardo are the largest manufacturers of vacuum precision planters in Europe, exporting them all over the world.
The farmer friendly Gaspardo high speed MTR planting unit is available in a variety of configurations with different frames, (fixed, telescopic and hydraulic folding), accommodating 6, 8 and 12 row drills. It has been designed for fast, accurate maize drilling into cultivated and min-till seedbeds, planting units are fitted at standard 75cm spacing (or 45 cm for variable row width models). All model types close down to 3m for easy and safe road transport.
GASPARDO’s continuous research and development programme has led to the development of a new and innovative high-speed seeding unit – the Chrono.
The Chrono has introduced a new level of sophistication to precision drilling into the UK. With a completely new seed delivery system, air bag suspension for each unit and electronically-controlled metering for both seed and fertiliser, the Chrono range offers fast-paced precision drilling with unrivalled seed placement and depth control.
