At the Wimmera Machinery Field Days in early March, Emmetts had Bourgault representatives on their site, featuring an exciting new machine, the CD848.
This new product is aimed at dairy farmers, small broadacre croppers, pasture growers and irrigated crop growers.
The CD848 coulter drill is 8m wide and has a 4,800L tank. It is available in 6″ to 15″ spacings, and features a TopCon rate controller.
Also available will be the 3-row HD848, with 10″-15″ spacings, PHD seed opener assembly. Both models feature a small seeds box, 2 pull options and a 3 compartment steel tank.
This concept model will be subject to testing over the coming weeks, with the intention to go into production in September, meaning they will be available for the 2020 cropping season.
Bourgault’s Matthew Waugh filmed a walkaround on the CD848, view it below:
