Today, we won’t speak about tractors, combines, farm fairs,... we are going to show a new tool which is saving a lot of time in our sowing tasks and that is a homemade tool manufactured by ourselves using two old wood palots. We are going to show the manufacturing process.
The inspiration reached while we were seeing a video in Landwird.com YouTube channel (we recommend you this fantastic channel) where they speak about Pöttinger Vitasem 302 seed drill. The most important idea found in this video was the way to fill the hopper of the seed drill... immediately, we thought that we needed a similar tool. At the following weekend, we spoke with our friend Julián Martínez (he is really a handyman) and we began to work over that design. Our purpose was to make it in an easy and affordable way... we think we got it.
We have a lot of seed in bulk bags so we had a problem to fill the hopper of our Solá seed drill because we can't fill it with our front loader. The process was to download out bulk bags on the floor and after that upload our trailer with the front loader... we don't have a big warehouse where we can work awkwardly so these jobs are a problem for us. Nowadays, this work is carried out directly, easy and really very quickly. We hope you like it!!
