PALMERSTON NORTH – (13 May 2011) Previously seen only in the UK in prototype format, KUHN’s new CSC 6000 power harrow and drill combination, with TF 1500 front hopper, offers larger arable farmers and contractors a flexible high work rate pneumatic seeding option.
This 6 metre model, which incorporates the HR 6004 DR folding power harrow and Venta pneumatic seeding facility, is suitable for operating on min-tilled or tilled land. KUHN has included its new Seedflex coulter bar, which is fitted with offset double discs on a parallelogram and large diameter press wheels, and is capable of a coulter pressure of up to 45 kg per unit to ensure consistent seeding depth at high speeds.
The new TF 1500 front hopper has a maximum capacity of 2,000 litres yet has a low filling height and ensures good visibility in work. This front hopper can be used on KUHN drills from 3 – 6m and can also be used for fertiliser with precision drills.
Electronic control for the CSC 6000 is provided by the Quantron S control box and an electrically driven metering unit. This equipment makes it possible for the user to adjust the application rate, to anticipate the rotation of the metering unit at the beginning of the field, to store up to 200 sets of data including the variety sown, the application rate, the seeding date, etc.
