A revolutionary new design and the latest disk opener technology. The agricultural world has been waiting for a long time for this.
Outstanding ground following capability and narrower, safer transport widths.
Outfitted with K-Hart’s exclusive Model 8620 Gent undercut disc openers, this easy-to-pull drill provides ultra-low soil disturbance, excellent seed-to-soil contact, reduced hairpinning and lower fuel consumption for no-till farming.
Improve Soil Quality
Residue left on the field protects the surface from sun and wind which helps retain moisture. Residue also interrupts water flow which reduces runoff.
Continuous no-till farming creates higher-quality soil which improves crop yield. It also reduces the amount of carbon released.
Lower Fuel Cost
The Spyder is one of the easiest disc drills to pull. Some competitive single disc drills require substantially more fuel to pull.
Narrower, Safer Transport Widths
Our patented, breakthrough, folding technology offers one of the narrowest transport widths on the market, for easier transportation and added safety.
Our 66′ and 60′ frames fold to 18′ 9″ wide – no wider than the duals on the air seeder cart. Our 40′ 3-plex frames are 14′ 4″ wide. We even shaved 2′ off the width of the 76′ Spyder.
Exceptional Seed Placement
The Spyder is built with patented Gent undercut disc technology. These openers move extraordinarily little soil while slicing through the heaviest of residue – giving you the best seed placement available in a disc drill.
The Spyder is Tough
Massive steel tube construction ensures years of trouble-free durability. The Spyder is ready to work and built to last in the harshest of seeding conditions.
Our opener linkage allows the openers to work closely together while engaged in the soil to maintain consistent row spacing while providing industry-leading access to openers for setting and maintenance when lifted up. For 2022, the back row can be locked up to allow double-width seeding. The clear opener bar allows highly configurable row spacings from 7 ½” to 12”. Inter Row Coulters are also available on their own lift system for independent depth control and so they can be out of the ground if not required – for seeding pulses, for example.
New for 2022, the Model 8620 Gent opener, a lower profile version of the Model 8612 Gent with improved adjustment accessibility.
Our patented opener linkage provides industry-leading access to the openers for setting and maintenance while keeping the ranks close together during seeding for accurate row spacing.
Clam Shell Linkage
Patented clam shell linkage arm technology ensures close row spacing when seeding – then lift and open up for ease of adjustments and serviceability.
Linkage design allows for seeding on both ranks or raise the back rank out of the soil and just seed on the front rank.
Hydraulic lift out for inter-row fertilizer coulters when not required.
“The Spyder did an admirable job for us in 2020, seeding into some pretty challenging conditions in a wide range of crops. I was very pleased with the consistency of depth and placement from the 8612 opener and the lack of hair-pinning. Very impressive seeding tool with excellent product support.”
