Hoppers aim to improve

Written by 

Kuhn importer CB Norwood Distributors Ltd's recently announced 3500L and 6500L trailed seed or fertiliser hoppers are aimed at improving the logistics of drilling and/or fertiliser application.

Each of the hoppers has a Cat 3 linkage system which allows the coupling of a coulter bar where the hoppers would be used as a seed carrier or a precision drill unit where it becomes a fertiliser carrier for starter nutrients. In both cases the operating efficiency is increased considerably, not least by reducing the time between refills.

The TT3500 unit uses an electrically driven metering unit that can deliver to coulter bars or seeding units up to 6m working width. And the TT6500 uses twin metering units to deliver up to 9m and is intended for high output operations. Both units are ISOBUS compatible for plug and play, or can be controlled via Kuhn's own CCI 100 terminal.

Options such as dual wheels, loading/unloading auger and various tractor couplings increase the versatility of the units.
