Amity Precision Shank Drill

The Amity Precision Shank Drill (PSD) is the newest addition to Amity’s air seeding equipment line. The new PSD has cutting coulters, precision placement openers, disk levelers and a wide pneumatic packer tire all mounted to an independent linkage. The PSD’s disc levelers ensure that soil from the shank in placed back in front of the packer tire regardless of operating speed to ensure seed depth is consistent across the field.

Shank pressure and packing pressure are controlled by the operator from the cab. Adjustments to the disk leveler and down pressure allow the producer to design the field finish they desire. Seed placement depth is determined using coloured depth stops located on the machine, and the PSD’s packer tire can be adjusted to “skew” it for cleaning of soil buildup. The PSD’s linkage is also designed with greaseless bushings on all the pivot points.
