PALMERSTON NORTH – (15th August 2011) The new precision seed drill can seed up to a width of 9m while offering a 3.00m transport width.
This seed drill can be fitted with 9, 10 or 12 rows with spacings for maize cultivation. Seeding can be carried out over a width ranging from 6.75m to 9m, ie a work output up to 60ha per day. It is intended for contractors and large sized farms.
Depending on the configuration, the foldable frame is fitted with extensions made up of either one piece beams over a transport width of 4.40m, single telescopic beams for a transport width of 3.50m or double telescopic beams for a transport width of 3.00m.
The seed drill is designed in three sections, each one independent for improved adaptation to ground contours. Depending on the configuration, it can be fitted either with wheels at the front for stony soils or at the rear for soil with less carrying capacity.
Available with Maxima 2 seeding units, this new frame can be fitted with numerous options from the Kuhn range:
- Seeding management from the tractor cab with the KMS 412 control boxes.
- Seed savings with the disengagement controlled from the cab.
- Fertilization with the front mounted hopper TF1500.
- Pneumatic centralized microgranulator for limiting clogging risks.
