Planter Frame Units

The Frame units for the Rogro Zero-Till range are available as a trailing unit or 3-point linkage, depending on the size of the planter and the country to be farmed, and are a solid frame with folding wings where necessary. This means the individual parallelogram of the row units can follow the contours of the paddock and maintain accurate depth control. This feature is most important for maintaining crop yields.

The Bitza unit is available as a trailing model only. The unit gives a choice between discs and tines. The frame is modular and works on the principle of triangulation in that it can float in any direction. Couple this with the walking beam parallelogram units and you have a machine with the most accurate depth control on the market. Because two planting rows have been incorporated into one heavy duty parallelogram row unit there are half as many row units compared to alternate machines. The issue of daily servicing and maintenance is reduce dramatically. In addition this allows the machine to handle very large residue levels.
