BOSS Agriculture’s unique Paraflex planter frame is a trailing unit fitted with a floating hitch designed specifically for use with our single disc (NX25, SX25 & SX25P) and double disc (NX20 & DX50) row units. The paraflex frames unique design is ideal for farmers & contractors operating in contoured, undulating or melon hole country. The simple and robust 2 bar sectional frame is available in widths up to 18metres/60ft wide in a double fold design.
The main benefits of the Paraflex planter frame compared to conventional planting frames is its ability to follow contoured, undulating or melon hole country with precision, allowing seeding depth to be as accurate as possible for fast and even crop germination. The key to achieving this lies in the frame design. Common wheel bridge frames fitted with large flotation tyres suspend a multi-sectional frame with the ability to not only flex up & down but also fore and aft allowing the frame to twist over the length of the machine.
During transport the stability of the machine is greatly improved as weight is evenly distributed on all centre section wheels. The suspended sectional frame also minimises stress being transferred back into the wheel frames to improve the frame life and help maintain the frames integrity. The Paraflex frames engineered toughness means the frame is a very open design for accessibility without compromising its strength and durability.
