A flexible combination
With its Mecasem XTC, Vicon has expanded its range of mechanical seeders with integral mounting model based on the tried and tested Vicon Toptiller, the Mecasem XTC ensures the best seeding results after ploughing and conservation tilling.
One of the main advantages for operators is the constant depth control for the coulters, thanks to the direct link between the coulter bar and the roller mounted with a parallelogram linkage system – additional settings due to tine wear on the rotary harrow are not necessary.
This seeder’s special linkage to the Vicon Toptiller allows fast disassemble when the power harrow is required for solo use. In addition, the wide range of options provide a solution to meet all requirements in the field.

The metering system suits application rates from 1- 400kg. The change between normal seed and fine seed is time saving as no tools are needed.
Metering wheels for normal and fine seeds are standard. The special design of the metering wheels with staggered cells and a bottom flap with a curved edge results in high quality seed distribution. The metering wheels are water and dust protected by the calibration trays. Easy and safe access to the whole calibration system is ensured by the loading steps.
Thanks to its full width opening, the tank can be easily filled from manually, “big bags” and with a front loader. Hopper extensions can increase the base capacity to 1.100 litres (3 m). The robust steel hopper cover protects the seed from dirt and rain.
The loading steps and the platform ensure safety and comfort. They can be easily folded up and are secured with a pin when the machine is in work.
The tank baffles direct the seed to the metering system and retain very little in the tank between metering units. This also helps to prevent seed from “sliding to one end” when drilling on slopes. The special tank geometry safeguards reliable operation even at low hopper levels. Additional special installations are not required.
According to the individual requirements and soil conditions, mechanical drills can be equipped with Suffolk Coulter or the CX-disc coulter.
