Versatility at it's best!
Serafin’s have built a reputation for having the best value for money, robust and reliable single disc seeders available on the Australian market. The Serafin Ultisow standard frame ranges from 8 metres up to 15 metres with a super strong and heavy frame built from 9mm RHS assisting with penetration into challenging conditions.
Over time we have made some significant improvements to our frame. This includes adding a 3m CTF tramline option – this upgrades the standard frame to a single arm with larger tyres on 3m centres.
All of our standard frames can be made to suit a tow behind or tow between cart. It’s great for farmers with an existing air cart that’s only looking for a reliable bar to pair it up with. The standard frame is a cost-effective choice without limitations on air cart capacity. The key to all these frame options is the fact that you can customise to suit your farming operation whether it be for narrow transport width, durability or less downtime.
* Custom built & Hi-Lift frame machines may not be under 3.5m transport width. Please speak to your Serafin Salesman to confirm.

Standard S8/S9/S10 - Features
Narrow transport width
Keeping the transport width down to 3.5m or less was a key factor in the design of the Ultisow S26, S30 and S34 frame design.
Having a 8 – 10m seeder that can fold up quickly for transport and not require an escort to get around makes your farming operation more profitable and easy to manage.
Depth control & Penetration
Consistent down pressure and depth control is paramount for accurate seeding depth resulting in better germination and even strike.
The Serafin Ultisow frames are manufactured out of strong 9mm steel RHS giving it extra weight than our competitors. And by having the depth gauge wheel next to the sowing boot you can be sure of a consistent seeding depth.
Backup service and support
Apart from having a strong, reliable row unit and frame, back up and support is what keeps Serafin customers keep coming back year after year.
We have trained staff with many years experience, spare parts on hand when you need it, and fully setup service team should you require on-farm support.

Common Options - SM Row Unit
Serafin Spiked Closing Wheel
Serafin’s own Spiked Closing Wheel replaces the standard smooth closing wheel. It provides some tilth next to the seed slot that assists with closing the seed slot more efficiently in harder conditions.
It also reduces the amount of closing wheel bounce resulting in more even, consistent closing wheel down pressure
Individual Small Seeds Placement kit
Allowing the operator to sow pasture seed and canola through a separate seeding tube that runs along the press wheel arm and places the seed into the seed slot once the press wheel has gone through.
This separates the main seed / fertiliser from the small seed plus sows this at a very shallow depth, independent to the main seed depth.
The narrow gauge depth wheel hub on the new Serafin SM are now able to offer the BUCO narrow gauge wheel with the open 3 spoke hub.
This means that whether you are chasing the narrow spacing on the unit or just wanting to have a smaller footprint on the ground, you can still benefit from the SM open hub design.
D-Cup Air Diffuser
Not standard but highly recommended are the D-cup plastic air diffusers which are fitted to the row unit to allow for higher rate of air flow to reduce blockages as well as reduce seed bounce.

An upgrade option over the plastic D-cup diffusers is the Serafin Stainless steel diffuser,
Working on similar principles as the D-cup but with a longer life and stronger housing.
It also has a rubber cap that fits neatly onto the stainless steel housing, ensuring that it doesn’t vibrate off or have latches that break. And has optional shield as shown
Needham Press & Gauge Wheels
New for 2021 we can offer now both the Needham V8 firming wheel and Needham Urethane Gauge wheel options for our SB2019 Disc Opener.
The V8 firming wheel is known for its longevity and ability to flex so that the press wheel continually gives the optimum seed to soil contact.
The Gauge Wheel is also very long life and quality bearing system.
Manutec Single Press Wheel
Replacing both the small BUCO press wheel and the cast closing wheel is the single arm with 15″ Manutec press wheel.
This works very well in soft, sandy conditions where the seed slot closes over itself. It is low maintenance and long wearing.
Manutec Mud Razor Gauge Wheel
A complete replacement of the standard BUCO depth wheel is the Manutec Mud Razoe option.
Fitted with a 4 1/2″ solid rubber wheel with an inbuilt metal scraper ring on the inside, this gauge wheel works well is muddy conditions.
Available on the Serafin SM unit is the Ryan NT (formerly RFM NT) Spring gauge wheel. Featuring improved resistance to mud build up and less weight.
The flex in the steel spring ensures that any mud build up will release, keeping the unit turning in the most sticky conditions.
Mounted Bin Options
Gason 1230IM or 1250IM
Optional fitment onto the Ultisow S26 – S34
The Ultisow S26 – S34 now has the option to fit up either a Gason 3,200L bin (1230IM) or the newly designed 5,100L bin (1250IM).
Both are a 2 bin design with 50/50 split, fully variable rate with electric drive, Series One metering system, and a Farmscan 7500 touch screen as standard.
Both are simple to operate, easy to calibrate and accurate. They also have a low oil requirement of approximately 75-80L/min to run.
There are many options for these air boxes including different monitor options such as ISOBUS – VT system through the Topcon Apollo, Blockage sensor kits & an additional 380L pasturebox.
Gason Mounted Bin Options
Topcon Apollo ISO kit
Topcon Apollo ISO kit that will work with any ISO terminal such as the John Deere Gen 4 terminal, ISO ready TRIMBLE screens or Topcon X35 displays. This does away with the standard Farmscan 7500 controller.
Separate 380lt Pasture Planter. This can be plumbed into the main seed tube, with Serafin’s Individual Small Seed Placement kit OR with a combination of both.
Gason Air warmer kit
Gason Air warmer kit which heats the air by taking heat from the hydraulic oil thus reducing potential for damp air causing fertilizer blockages.
