What we provide

Overview

Many of our competitors' machines are based on technology that is up to 40 years old. Sure…they have made advances, but overall these have been largely limited by their existing tooling. In other words, competing machines are bound by existing convention rather than based on good seeding practice.

By contrast, our company founder Don Sandbrook, after many years of working as a seeder designer, saw the opportunity to make a fresh start. Banishing all preconceptions, he began with the optimum outcomes. He then carefully and methodically worked on how to deliver those benefits! The result: a revolutionary range of seeding machinery that is sold in 20 countries around the world, and which offers unique advantages.

Seed Metering Unit

The Seed Spider Metering System is the world's first electronic seed metering system. It is a revolutionary device that accurately meters seed from a bulk hopper to multiple outlets. It is noticeably more accurate over a wider range of seed types than virtually all of the existing equipment on the world market. It is best suited to seeds ranging in size from 10 to 4000 seeds per gram (for example, raw carrot or lettuce seed up to seed the size of a pea).

Sled Seeder

The Sled Seeder has been designed to meet the needs of the smaller scale vegetable grower at an affordable price. It's revolutionary design features two highly abrasive resistant plastic bed skids which level the bed top and cover the placed seed with soil, producing excellent results and performing exceptionally well in both light sandy soils and wet conditions.

Roller Seeder

The Seed Spider Roller Seeder is our established top end planter, designed for sowing high density crops such as baby leaf salad, spinach and baby carrots. It is fitted with a front and rear bed roller with three rows of staggered soil openers mounted in between. The front roller levels the seed bed while the rear roller covers the placed seed with soil.

Harvester

Seed Spider harvesters have evolved due to requests from growers for a simple light weight machine. They are matched to the Seed Spider Roller Seeder and Sled Seeder.
