After a thorough ploughing you’re ready to spread some seed, and the bigger the tool you have, the better. In farming terms obviously.
This is one such tool, a Vaderstad RDA 800C, being towed (and powered) by a mighty John Deere 9560R tractor. This enormous rig is the work of Flickr’s Eric Trax, and it’s a seriously impressive bit of kit.
Eric’s 1:18 scale John Deere 9560R includes SBrick bluetooth-controlled all-wheel-drive with diff locks, central articulated steering, and a working piston engine, whilst the Vaderstad seeder behind it features a pneumatically operable seeding mechanism that can raise and lower for road and work configurations, powered by an on-board compressor and operable remotely via a second SBrick.
There’s lots more of both the 9560R and Vaderstad seeder to see at Eric’s Flickr photostream via the link above, plus you watch the combination in action courtesy of the video below, where Eric demonstrates what his giant seeding tool can do.
We made it through this entire post without mentioning your Mom! Apart from this bit.
