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.

Greater Yields

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.

K-Hart Spyder Drill

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.

Opener Linkage

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.

Openers

New for 2022, the Model 8620 Gent opener, a lower profile version of the Model 8612 Gent with improved adjustment accessibility.

Features

Opener access

Unparalleled Access

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.

Floatation

The Spyder drill comes standard with wide floatation tires to minimize soil compaction.

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.

Coulters

Hydraulic lift out for inter-row fertilizer coulters when not required.

Testimonials

“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.”
