Morris introduces new compact seeding system

Saskatoon, SK – Morris Industries Ltd., a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, launches the CX 8105 seeding system which combines the precision of the Contour independent drill with the seeding metering accuracy and efficiency of the Morris air cart.  “The CX 8105 is an ideal seeding system that integrates precision and efficiency for smaller acre sized farms and front wheel assist tractors” says Don Kirkwood, Morris Sales Manager for Australia, New Zealand.

Compact size and transport features
The CX 8105 is available in 7.62 (25) or 9.45 meter (31 feet) working widths with the choice of 25.4 cm (10 inch) or 30.5 cm (12 inch) row spacing.  The compact design and 3 meter (9 feet, 10 inches) transport width makes transport safe and easy.

Articulated design
The articulated design of the CX 8105 reduces weight transfer and increases land-following ability.  The pivot allows the cart to move independently from the drill, which improves stability and seeding accuracy.

New independent opener technology
The drill features Morris’s next generation new shank design for improved trash clearance and easier opener adjustments.  The new shank distance from the ground level to the catch point has been increased 60 percent and the reclined 12 degree angle moves trash up and off the shank faster.  When trash flows off the shank instead of building up, the potential for bunching is greatly reduced.  The cam has been adjusted up and away from the ground, so opener adjustments are much easier to make.  The proven parallel linkage provides outstanding seed depth accuracy.

Convenient accurate air delivery
The 3695 litre (105 bushel) capacity features 60/40 split tanks features in-cab technology controls for on-the go variable rate applications and speed responsiveness to field conditions.  Access ladders are provided on both sides and the catwalk features convenient under floor storage and easy access to both tanks.
