The Monoshox NX M metering unit is the result of the know-how and experience of MONOSEM in the field of depth control with discs in Europe since 1989 with the NG Plus. The Monoshox NX M planter is designed for demanding farmers and contractors looking for a versatile precision planter capable of working in difficult and low-till conditions with high quality planting. So if you are looking for a heavy-duty, reliable and precise planter, choose the Monoshox NX M.
A DESIGN which makes all the difference
The rear press wheel unit, made up of 2 x 1’’ V-wheels, closes the furrow around the seed for optimal seed germination.
The curved seed chute tube has been specially designed to accompany the seeds gently into the ground and with a perfect accuracy.
The double discs open the furrow at a depth defined by the gauge wheels.The tip finishes the bottom of the furrow for an optimal seed placement.
The circular coulter (smooth or rippled) prepares the passage for the double discs and produces fine soil for the future planting line (equipment according to the country).
The trash wheels clean the way for the future planting line pushing out clods, stones or trash (equipment according to the country).
In order to meet with farmers new expectations, the metering unit has Monoshox NX M exclusive technologies enabling it to be :
The PRO wheel in cast iron has a stainless steel coating and a plastic scraper. Wide diameter (295mm), it keeps its shape and offers a quality pressing and a better seed placement.
The bracket arms of the gauge wheels are assembled on interchangeable bushes. They are helically fluted for a good grease distribution.Scrapers are standard assembly on the gauge wheels.
Large depth gauge wheels (110 mm) ensure an efficient and uniform depth control. Resting on the ground directly in line with the seed drop ensures the unmatched depth consistency.The independent gauge wheels are mounted on an equalizing rocker bar which ensures uniform depth control even when one wheel encounters an obstacle (eg: stones).
The planting system is made up of two large diameter discs (380 mm) mounted on sealed ball bearings.
The front part of the metering unit offers a wide clearance so enabling the use of a wide range of accessories for low-till planting.The trash wheels and circular coulter combination is delivered as standard equipment on NX units (according to the country).
The Monoshox.EU. like all good suspensions combines pressure springs with a shock absorber specially designed for using on a planting unit.
Thus, when working the two pressure springs retain the planting unit on the ground and the suspension with shock absorber absorbs the shocks. The precision and the regularity of the planting depth remain optimal.
The large diameter double springs ensure a high depth control pressure, guaranteeing unit stability and regular depth in all conditions. They enable the transfer of the frame weight on to the metering units.
These pressure springs are adjustable so as to suit all planting conditions.
The wide and short parallelogram ensures an excellent stability both vertically and laterally of the metering unit which follows the ground contours perfectly. The wide unit head for fixing on to the 7” TOP frame is also specific to the NX. It enables an extremely rigid metering unit-frame assembly. The shafts are assembled on self-lubricating bushes for a longer life.
The hopper in high resistance, transparent plastic has a capacity of 70 litres.The cover locks so will not close during filling, even in windy conditions.
The depth adjustment is easily made using a hand wheel. This type of adjustment ensures a greater control precision of the planting depth even for small seeds at a shallow depth.
The depth adjustment index is visible straight away from the rear. It is weather-proof.
The Monoshox NX M unit is equipped with a rear press wheel unit that can be adjusted using levers (Equipment according to the country).
The right hand lever (a) enables a rapid and accurate adjustment of the rear press wheel pressure.
The left hand lever (b) enables the adjustment of the angle of the wheels to rapidly suit the planting conditions (see pictures opposite).
Each metering unit is equipped with an audible safety clutch system with automatic clutching for optimal protection of the metering system.
The Monoshox NX M range is now marketed in an electirc driven version, Monoshox NX ME:

High quality planting demands a good distribution system. This is why MONOSEM offers all their know-how in order to give you an accurate, simple and extremely reliable distribution system. This high quality manufacturing has made the MONOSEM metering system a worldwide name. Today for your planting, you too can demand the MONOSEM reference.
The metering box is made from cast aluminium. Year after year the metering will always be just as accurate and this no matter the variations in temperature.
The wear gasket in Teflon is in permanent contact with the disc. It ensures the sealing of the disc and it is interchangeable.
The stainless steel discs 1,5 mm thick are very rigid. The agitator, fixed on to the disc stiffens the unit. The changing of the discs is easily made without tools. A complete range of discs for all precision seeds is available.
The brass scraper avoids doubles. A spring on the metering box cover maintains the selector perfectly in place against the disc for optimal selection, even with small seeds.
The cover in alloy is specially designed for planting with a minimum of seeds.
The distribution system is easily accessible, for both adjustments and control. A large transparent window allows for control of the selection after the selector.
The new emptying trapdoor offers easier operating. Open the trapdoor and it stays open enabling, with the emptying auger supplied as standard equipment, an even easier and more efficient emptying.
