Healthy soils lie at the heart of the design of the Meir SC. Effective soil loosening throughout the root zone, whilst minimising soil mixing and surface disturbance, make the Meir SC an ideal partner in reduced tillage establishment regimes.
Strength has been poured into the Meir at every opportunity. The main frame is made from high grade steel and has been rigorously tested to ensure it holds up even the toughest of going. The bearings in the packer roller are proven up to 44,000N (30% more than typical competitors).
The Meir’s Hardox legs, fitted with shear-bolt protection, are spread over 2 rows, reducing the interference between tines, and therefore reducing surface disturbance. Wearing metal comes in the form of a single replaceable point-wing-shin combination, all protected with the latest in tungsten wear prevention technology.
The Meir’s 15mm wide point is positioned 140mm forward of the leaning edge of the wing in order to fracture the soil before the wing comes into contact with it, reducing wing wear and preventing smearing by the wing.
The 200mm wide wing lifts the soil 40mm to ensure effective vertical fracturing as the soil drops off the rear of the wing. The 200mm length of the wing provides a shallower angle of attack (10°) helping to reduce surface disturbance.
Removable straight discs positioned in the front of the legs, help to ‘crimp’ the surface preventing mixing of the soil at the surface. Fitted with hydraulic protection, the discs also allow the soil conditioner to work directly into thick cover crops and grass leys.
The Meir’s roller is fitted with deep angled points centred either side of each leg to leave a weatherproof, firm surface. Adjustable scrapers ensure the roller remains clean in stickier going. Optional extras include a rubber roller or a hydraulic adjustment of rollers.
