New KUHN precision drill range launched

Written by  Staff Reporters

KUHN has launched a new range of precision seed drills in the shape of the Maxima 3 series.

Offered in 12 models with six to twelve rows for drilling maize, sunflower, beetroot, and other crops at 37.5 to 80cm spacing, the drills are available in telescopic, trailed, foldable and telescopic with adjustable spacing versions. 

The drills are said to offer optimum seeding precision at speeds of up to 10km/h. The design features a new, reinforced seeding unit – operating with parallelogram action – that ensures robustness and an extended service life. Another key feature is the 180kg coulter pressure system that provides excellent penetration, with accurate and consistent depth control. 

Several of the Maxima 3 models offer electrically-driven metering units. These allow application rate adjustment from the tractor cab, rate adjustment with prescription map, GPS, or manual row shut-off and simplified seed drill settings.

The new ISOBUS CCI 1200 terminal working in conjunction with Maxima 3 allows viewing two different interfaces on the same screen for optimum seeding management and user friendliness. 

A range of front, intermediary and rear equipment options enables users to configure their machine to the working environment at hand, particularly in areas such as seed transfer dealing with trash and final consolidation.
