Another from the other side.

This drill has the marker arms but they arent used; here on this side the operator uses the marker arm to store a broom, for sweeping the top of the drill down (spilled fertilizer, etc).

You can see the transport wheels in the up position here as well as the safety triangle.

Another one.

My Toyota Prado 4wd station wagon is behind the drill.

Re: Bettinson TC-4 Combine Drill
The small seedbox (used to sow poppies) was added by the owner (the box itself was built by a local engineer & has Fiona metering rollers).

The poppy sowing tubes at the rear were also added by the drill's owner; the front drill coulters band place the high analysis fertilizer & the carrier fertilizer (Lime Super or Triple / Lime Super mix) goes down the back pipes / tubes.

Re: Bettinson TC-4 Combine Drill
There used to be drills like that used here, perhaps 20+ years ago. The past few years, although the combination type is selling well, the Vaderstadt is very popular.

They have just started selling the Vaderstad's on mainland Aust (not sure if there is a distributor here in Tas or not yet). I think there have been some sold in NZ too.

They do seem popular in the UK, if the pics in FW are anything to go off :-), they look like a nice machine.

TC,
One of my neighbours bought a two year old Vaderstadt for the 2006 season. I was going to pull it, to plant his wheat, with my JD 4755. Unfortunately the hydraulics are not compatible, so he ended up pulling it with his own Fendt 716. :-\
