Ultisow NF: The Ultimate in Versatility & Manueverabilty
The Narrow Fold (NF) Series 2 single disc seeder is the ultimate single disc seeder for those looking for versatility and maneuverability.
Whether you are a grazier looking for a seeder with excellent penetration into hard, compacted ground. Or maybe you’re a serious cropper looking for low maintenance & reliability. Or maybe even a mixed farmer looking for something that does the lot, the Serafin Narrow Fold has you covered.
It features a heavily constructed 12mm fully powder coated frame with drop down rear section which gives strength, weight for penetration and a lower box height making filling the boxes easier and safer. It also has the new, lower maintenance SB2019 single disc row unit with easy to adjust depth control and accurate seed placement.
All of this equals the ultimate Ultisow that is easy to transport around from job to job, no matter what it is.

SERAFIN | ULTISOW NF | SINGLE DISC SEEDER | 5 – 7m Features
Narrow Transport Width
With a narrow 3m folded width the NF is quick and easy to get around from farm to farm. 12ft gateways are no concern and there is no need for an escort either.
Being able to be configured in 5m, 6m and 7m configurations along with a range from row spacings from 157mm and up, means that no matter what the job is at hand, there is an Ultisow NF to suit.
With its 3PL hitch & its reduced frame length the Narrow Fold Series 2 is more maneuverable than ever. Tight turns at the headlands are a breeze whilst it remains stable and easy to reverse into corners. And its easy to hook up!
Quality Strong Frame
Heavy construction 8” x 8” x 12mm RHS main frame with fully reinforced 6” x 6” x 9mm RHS wings. The frame is fully powder coated with a 3 stage process including a undercoat which adds to the robustness of the finish.
The special Series 2 step-down section at the rear keeps the box height down, making it easier and safer for filling.
Simple Pressure Control
The Narrow Fold is fitted standard with a hydraulic valve with manual adjustment and pressure gauge to allow the operator to change the amount of pressure supplied to the row units.
This gives them the ability to setup the machine for various soil types & sowing conditions.
Serafin Machinery have been building No-till seeders for over 10 years and selling them Australia wide. The series 2 design came from Australian farmer feedback.
We pride ourselves on our backup aftersales support and we are willing to work with you to customize the machine so you end up with the perfect seeder for your operation.
Serafin Baldan SB2019 Row Unit
Simple to adjust seeding depth with 1/2″ increments
Open gauge wheel with heavy duty hub to allow for mud / trash to escape
Large 20″ x 6mm disc blade for longer life & better penetration
Press wheel with independent down pressure adjustment – range of tyre options
Non-greasable needle roller bearings – does away with wearing bushes & pins for less maintenance and a much longer life
Closing wheel with independent down pressure adjustment with different options of wheel type available
SB2019 Single Disc Opener
The forth generation of Serafin single disc openers from Baldan is the new SB2019 unit. This opener has many improvements over the previous models and most of these have come directly from Australian Farmer feedback.
The SB2019 has maintained its large 20″x 6mm single disc blade that operates on a 7 degree angle. It has also kept the open depth gauge wheel, the needle roller bearings in the top pivot and its simple, robust casting.
Improvements has been focused on reducing the amount of maintenance required for this unit. A single regular grease point on the auxiliary bush has a service interval of 200 hours and a bi-annual grease point on the depth adjuster handle. The new style disc hub doesn’t require greasing any longer nor does it require pre-loading.
Other improvements have been focused on seed placement. The modified casting of the SB2019 seedboot has improved seed placement by offering a smoother flow through the seedboot.
The row unit has also been modified to allow for a narrower spacing down to 158mm over 2 rows. This is only achievable with the BUCO narrow gauge wheel which is able to be fitted to the spoked hub since it has been reversed.

Standard SB2019 Configuration
Common options for the SB2019
Serafin Spiked Closing Wheel
Serafin’s own Spiked Closing Wheel replaces the standard closing 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.
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.

Common Options For The ULTISOW NF
NEW ULTISOW NF Hi-Lift Frame
With the outstanding success and positive customer feedback from our launch of our Ultisow S12 Hi Lift Single Disc Seeder Bar in early 2020, we had numerous calls from new and existing Narrowfold customers asking if we were going to be doing something with the NF frame to make it easier to service and adjust the units. WE LISTENED!
Introducing the new NF Hi Lift Frame option which includes a new designed rear axle and frame configuration that has two large hydraulic cylinders that allows the frame to lift up to give approx. 1,500mm underframe clearance.
Each lift cylinder can be tapped off for added safety when working under the frame when it is in the lifted position. Not only did we fit the lift cylinders but we also added 150mm extra frame to further increase the clearance between the front and rear rows.
So there will be no hassle getting under and around the machine for adjusting the units, servicing the units, emptying the seed box or even fitting the calibration tray to the Gason metering system. The benefits are endless.
NOTE: THIS IS A FACTORY OPTION ONLY AND CAN NOT BE RETROFITTED TO EXISTING NF SEEDERS.
Grainline Folding Loading Auger
5" Grainline Folding Loading Auger
New to the ULTISOW NF range for 2019 is the 5m x 5″ Grainline split & folding auger which is mounted to the left hand side of the Gason 1230IM box for loading both the seed and fertiliser bins.
By having the auger split and folding, it has helped us keep the overall length down as well as give us enough length to have the auger maneuverable enough to work in almost any condition.
A super strong mounting bracket and locking mechanism ensures that this will last the test of time. Just ask your Serafin Salesman for a price!
Retrofittable to NarrowFold Series 2 seeders with Gason 1230IM mounted box
Maybe you are an existing NarrowFold owner and would like to upgrade your seeder by fitting this loading auger option? Sure can!
All you need to do is give us a call and we can help put together a kit for you. And if you want us to fit it too? Why not.
We could even tie it together with a pre-season service of your machine.
All you have to do is call your Serafin Salesman for more info and pricing.
