Air Seeders | SR Metering System
Side Release for Simpler Operation, Faster Changeover
Gason air seeders have always enjoyed a reputation for rugged strength, reliability, accuracy and ease of adjustment.
The introduction of side release metering box technology in 2005 following 3 years of testing takes ease of operation to a whole new level.
Using a quick release mechanism, the meter shaft assembly is withdrawn from the side of the machine in just minutes, offering easy access and reduced changeover times when going from one product to the next.
Cleaning is so easy with the meter shaft assembly completely withdrawn. It's also more thorough, eliminating almost any chance of cross contamination.
Owners are reporting virtually no downtime when moving from one seed to another.
Changeovers have always been easy with Gason seeders because, unlike our competitors, we use the same metering wheel for cereals, canola and small seeds. The only time you need to actually change a wheel is for broad beans or similar large seeds
And even that's very simple. It involves only two bolts. Cleaning and changing over to a large seed wheel is still only a five-minute job with the new side release system. It really is a time saver.
The new side release meter box is now standard on the new 6000 and all 8000, 9000, 12000 and 15000 litre machines.
The SR Metering System can be used on both the ground drive and VRT air seeder range.
