GROUND BREAKING AUSTRALIAN TECHNOLOGY
The Germinator features a unique single trailing tine with individual press wheel depth control, this allows each tine to follow the ground uniformly, even in undulating conditions, thus creating the ideal seed placement. Each tine is held in the ground with a hydraulic cylinder all controlled by a hydraulic manifold. Tine pressure can be adjusted from within the tractor cabin via a simple dial. All tines can be lifted and lowered using one hydraulic lever, in a similar way to most modern seeders and combines. The 9m toolbar also incorporates optional sowing coulters. Constructed in pairs and mounted on rubber suspension, these coulters are similar to many modern high speed tillers.

Through the design process, our focus was always on placing tines in the ideal pattern for trash flow.
One of the biggest challenges facing the modern farmer is the ability to sow through trash, so the bar has been designed so maximum spacing between the tines can be achieved in both directions, and pinch points are minimised. 750mm between each tine and 1.4m between rows when coupled with optional coulters, provides the best trash flow possible.
