The perfect direct drill without compromise

The Mzuri IPASS has been specifically designed to offer high output, efficient low disturbance seeding direct into stubble and cover crops, while retaining its ability to drill into cultivated ground. 

Spring loaded front discs cut through crop residue and minimise surface disturbance. The primary coulter clears the seeding zone of residue and band places fertiliser below the seed to promote good root development. Accurate seed depth is maintained across the width of the drill with independent, hydraulically pressurised coulter arms each free to self-steer behind the path created by the leading disc. Suspended by a parallel linkage that ensures the coulter angle is unaffected by depth, the unique seeding arms offer exceptional ground following for uniform emergence over undulating ground.

With a combined volume of 5000 litres, the 60/40 split hopper is pressurised for metering and conveying high application rates accurately at much higher speeds than can be achieved with traditional systems.

Seed and fertiliser are delivered from the large capacity tank via four variable speed electric metering units designed for high output, efficient delivery. Two units control fertiliser and two control seed giving operators the option to shut off half of the width.

The IPASS metering system can accommodate all fertiliser compounds and seed types typical of most arable operations including small OSR and grass seeds to large maize and winter beans. 

The Mzuri IPASS is fitted with a commercial 18 tonne rated axle with floatation tyres to accommodate the extra-large hopper for increased productivity and reduced downtime. Hydraulic brakes are supplied as standard with air brakes available as an optional upgrade.

The Mzuri IPASS is available in widths of 4.0m, 4.8m, 6.0m and 8.0m with two row spacing options per model.

Key Features

Options

Whilst most features come as standard, the iPass can be tailored to your requirements with several optional preferences

 

Unique Coulter Assembly

Zone A – Cut surface and clear residue

The leading serrated disc cuts through the surface straw allowing residue to flow freely through the machine.

Zone B – Fertiliser Placement

The auto-reset tine clears crop residue from the till and band places fertiliser below the seeding zone to reduce the fertiliser requirement and ensures early nutrient accessibility, providing essential support for quick, strong and healthy establishment.

Zone C – Seeding

A unique ball joint system* gives each hydraulically pressurised coulter arm exceptional ground following and self-steering capabilities for uniform emergence over undulating ground. The coulter legs are suspended by a parallel linkage that ensures the coulter angle is unaffected by depth and offers control independent to the front fertiliser zone.

Zone D – Reconsolidation

Individually adjustable V-shaped press wheels offer excellent reconsolidation for seed to soil contact necessary for quick and even germination. Press wheel scrapers keep wheels clean in wet conditions.
