A unique seed selection system
This high working speed is possible thanks to its unique seed selection system: the Gilstring Seed Meter (named after its creator).
Its pressurised seed selection system (not depression as in the majority of competitor seed drills), combined with a rubber press wheel located just after the seed ejection tube, greatly reduces vibration problems at high speed, and maintains regular distance between seeds.
Real-time control of planting quality
The Gilstring Seed Meter is driven by electric motors, and managed by the Väderstad high-performance control station (similar to that of Rapid drills) allowing quick adjustment of seed density and immediate visualisation, on the screen, of sowing quality for every row: gaps and duplications are displayed instantly. So adjustment of the drill is greatly simplified and planting errors highly limited.
