The Proven and Reliable 12m Ultisow No-till Seeder!
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.

SERAFIN ULTISOW S12 SINGLE DISC SEEDER 12m Features
Narrow Transport Width
Being able to move around from farm to farm is becoming more of a challenge each year. We understand this so we have designed the Serafin Ultisow S12 so that you only need a single escort vehicle.
Having a 4.4m transport width not only means it is easy to move along the road but it will also fit through narrower gates and can be stored with less room in your shed!
Strong Robust Frame
The frame is the basis of any good seeder and here at Serafins we dont take shortcuts.
Starting off by using a heavy gauge 9mm steel for all of our frame work we can not only build a stronger, more robust frame than others on the market but we can also have enough weight so you wont need to put additional weights on the frame to get it to penetrate!
Flexibility in Design
We understand that not every farmer has the same needs and requirements so we listen to what you want and we then work on building the seeder around that.
Need a row spacing other than 7 1/2″ or 10″? Not a problem! Need to suit your 3m tramlines? We can help!
Have something else in mind? Ask us, we are only a call away!
Ease of Maintenance
Minimising down time and reduced maintenance is the key to a successful seeding operation.
The Serafin Ultisow is easy to work on and around, plus with the Serafin SM Row unit the maintenance schedule is much less than many other single disc machines on the market.
Ease of adjustment
Being able to adjust your single disc row unit is critical to getting the most out of your seeder. But if it is hard to do you’re not going to do it, right?
The Serafin Ultisow is one of the simplest machines to adjust, with no tools required, This means you can quickly set it up the field so that the sowing job is spot on, every time!
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 for the Serafin 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.
