Precise, Versatile Seeding
The volumetric seed metering by fluted rollers, with built-in small seed rollers, is suitable for all seed sizes and shapes. The helical grooves dose applications rates from 1 – 400 lbs/acre. This distribution system is accurate and reliable throughout the whole operation. It provides regular seeding rates and distribution in the row even on slopes or uneven ground and is unaffected by vibrations. The Premia metering system is controlled by the seed drill’s two wheels via a 6-cam selector. This ensures reliable control and a regular flow through uniform rotation for small seeds with according low application.
The small angle of the single disc reduces soil movement and the cast iron seeding tip, positioned in line with the disc, both cleans the disc and precisely positions the seed in the furrow. The disc shape ensures penetration into the soil maintaining accurate seeding depth.
Efficient Border Seeding
A half-width shut-off disengages the left half of the seed drill, if it is necessary to seed with half width along field borders.
Direct Access to Distributors
The flow test is particularly easy to conduct. The seed bar tilts via a parallelogram, making a large area available for the collection bucket.
Easy Check of Flow Rate
Flow rate can be checkered with the machines on the ground, or even without being hitched to the tractor. Simply flip a lever for maximum access to carry out the calibration or for emptying the hopper. Afterwards, set the opening by a micrometric screw and carry out the number of turns required.
Adjust Maximum Seeding Depth
A big advantage for combined seeding in mixed soil: The adjustable low stop (by a rotating handle) determines the maximum seeding depth. It enables work to take place at high pressure while avoiding to seed too deep in areas where the soil is easy to penetrate.
Covering Harrow with Tines
The covering harrows with tines are adjustable to provide high efficiency operation and consistent seed cover in a variety of soil types and field conditions.
Easy to Load, Easy to Empty
To allow for easy loading, the hopper has a wide opening with the cover even opening to more than 90°. That means an easy filling by bucket or big bag. The gas spring s facilitate the opening of the cover even on machines which are four meters wide. The bottom of KUHN seed drill hoppers is V-shaped. This reduces the residual quantity ensures a uniform metering unit feed. The standard agitator is oscillating, thus handling the seeds with care.
Premia hoppers can be equipped with side markers. They are always lifted vertically for reduced dimensions during maneuvering and are equipped with a shear bolt safety for protection in case of hitting an obstacle.
