Fast and Productive
Smooth Field Finish
Concord® legacy edition
Precise Down Pressure
The legendary CONCORD® air drill was the driving force behind the development of the air seeder industry from the 1970s to the mid 90s. Its feature s and innovations have been proven over millions of acres and remain as must-have features in today’s air seeders.
Developed by the same minds that created the CONCORD, the Amity Precision Shank Drill combines some of its best features with modern technology to take efficiency and productivity to new levels … making the Precision Shank Drill worthy of the title, Concord® Legacy Edition!
A rippled coulter on the Precision Shank Drill easily cuts through tough residue conditions and fractures soil ahead of the opener to keep residue flowing smoothly through the drill, rather than bunching and leaving piles of residue all over the field.
Why is this shank drill able to work at higher speeds? It’s all about controlling the soil. Each row unit acts independently so that what one row unit does has no effect on the one beside it.
The coulter pre-fractures the soil to minimize disturbance by allowing more soil to move around the opener, instead of being lifted and blown out.
Any displaced soil is then captured by two independent closing discs around the opener.
The discs immediately direct the soil back over the seed row, ensuring uniform seed cover at speeds of 8 mph or more.
The drill is designed with robust components to withstand the stress of higher speeds and demanding seeding conditions. Additionally, components are designed for minimal maintenance, with the packer wheel and slicing coulter bearing only requiring seasonal greasing.
As the closing discs work to contain soil and put it back evenly into the trench, a wide packer tire then follows and properly levels the furrow. The result is a consistently smooth field finish.
The down pressure on a row unit is a critical factor in producing a clean field finish and even emergence of the crop. Down pressure on the Precision Shank Drill is kept constant by an individual hydraulic cylinder on each row unit. A control box display allows the operator to monitor and control down pressure on-the-go.
What people say about Amity Seeding equipment
“We had already run a Concord and knew what we were getting going with Amity. The packer tires run well without any trouble. It’s a very maintenance-free drill.”
“The Amity has minimal moving parts. It’s basically a trouble-free machine. We have a 50-foot drill that we can run 8 or 9 mph. I’ve seeded 500 acres of soybeans in a day.”
“It’s the best drill I’ve ever been around as far as seed placement and uniformity without disturbing the soil so much. Seed to soil contact is really good with this machine.”
