OPICO are the sole UK importer for the GASPARDO range of machines, the range currently consists of three main types of Precision Drilling units with a variety of frame types. These offer precision drilling for a wide range of crops.

GASPARDO started producing planting machines for delicate seed types in 1834, in 1950 they made their first precision drill and later developing vacuum precision drills in 1972. 50 years on they are one of the largest manufacturers of vacuum precision planters in Europe producing approximately 28,000 planter units in 2011, exporting them all over the world including Europe, Russia and America to name a few.

It is clear to see with the current volume of vacuum precision drilling units sold across the world the GASPARDO machines are tried and tested to say the least! Around 500 machines have been sold in the UK since 1992 when they were first imported so they have also been well proven in the UK.

Every model is built under extreme scrutiny ensuring excellent quality, reliability and very low maintenance.

The GASPARDO philosophy “EASY MAINTENANCE” can be clearly seen throughout every machine, each one is fully loaded with simple but great ideas enabling maintenance and setup modification to be carried out quickly at the most part without the need of any tools.
