Bourgault unveils 9000 series air seeders

Bourgault has unveiled its 9000 series air seeder units, and early in-field use from this spring resulted in positive purchaser feedback.

There are five new 9000 series models says Robert Fagnou, marketing specialist with Bourgault Industries: the 9650, 9950, and the 91300 Trailing models, as well as the 9650 and 9950 Leading models.

The main differences between the previous 7000 series and new 9000 series are that the individual tanks are on individual load cells, and can provide live product rates for the producer. Also, the X35 Apollo Centre can monitor the product rate and compare the calibrated rate to the actual rate. If it’s off by a certain percentage, an alarm will go off, and a rate calibration option comes up and can be entered in the system to adjust.

The 9000 series will be sold across western Canada, into the U.S., Australia and western Europe, except for the 91300 model which is too large to ship in a container. Fagnou encourages producers to talk to their local dealers for programming options and pricing.

Folding conveyors mounted on the new Leading air seeder is also one of the new features that comes standard. “Another important feature for the 9000 series are I-2-I capabilities. We can now have multiple units working off the same map, producers who have two or three tanks that running in the same field are actually running off the same map, so their sectional controls will work for each unit,” says Fagnou.
