TD3601 Tyne Direct Drill

The TD series has been designed as the ultimate pasture tyne drill.

  • The drought highlighted the shortcomings of current pasture tyne equipped direct drills
    • Lack of penetration – especially with front disc coulters engaged
    • Lack of trash handling capability – especially with disc-coulters dis-enagaged
    • Hard bottomed, open, tilth-less seed slots  – exacerbated by damaged/worn baker boots
    • Lack of tilth and seed cover
  • The DOYLE TD drill design has addressed all these issues plus more
  • Unique design with extendable toolbars for a 3.6m working width but only 3.05m transport width
  • 100x100x9mm RHS and 16mm 350 grade plate frame makes for an extra heavy duty machine with built-in penetrating weight
  • 5 1/2 toolbars on 550mm spacings for superior trash handling capability
  • Double M16 U-bolted 25mm coil tynes for tight toolbar clamping (32mm coil tynes available) on 150mm row spacings
  • Single bolt BOSS3 McCoy lucerne points
    • Narrow 10mm wide x 75mm deep tungsten tile
    • Low disturbance at shallow or deep levels
    • Longer life – unlike a baker boot, rock damage to the tip does not seriously affect operation
    • Single bolt BOSS1 cast baker boots available
  • Hydraulically lowered harrow bar for seed coverage – superior seed coverage but does not impact on transport, agility or reversing of machine
  • In-frame wheel assemblies for improved ground following ability
  • 315/70-22.5 super single truck tyres on 5.5Tonne Titan hubs (Australian made)
