A cover crop seeding unit for use in combination with Kuhn’s
stubble cultivator range is to be launched by the company at Cereals
The SH comprises a seed hopper, metering roller and an
electrically driven pneumatic seed distribution system with eight
outlet hoses. It can be fitted retrospectively to Kuhn’s
Optimer and Mixter stubble cultivation ranges, as well as to the
Two metering rollers are available, for small and larger seeds.
These can be changed quickly without tools, and a variator that
controls the rotation speed enables easy and precise adjustment
of seed quantity. The metering unit is driven by a skeleton wheel
that ensures an even seed density at varying working speeds.
A double electric blower that is controlled from the tractor cab
propels seed through the distribution hoses. Each hose is fitted
with a regulator plate that ensures even distribution of seed across
the full working width of the machine.
The SH has a distribution capacity of up to 25 kg/ha for a 6 metre
working width at 10 km/hr. Hopper capacity is either 150 litres
(SH 150) or 400 litres (SH 400).
KUHN ADAPTS LIGHT SOIL CULTIVATOR FOR USE WITH PLANT RESIDUES
Kuhn is extending its CD combination tine harrow range with the
launch at Cereals 2006 of a version for use where significant plant
residues are present.
As with the original CD launched in 2005, the CDM is designed for
use in light chalky-loam soils in combination with Kuhn’s
Venta pneumatic and Integra mechanical drills, as an alternative
to a power harrow.
The CDM tine cultivator comprises two rows of trailing tines designed
to allow the passage of plant residues, and Kuhn’s Packer
roller as standard. The machine is available in 3 metre (CDM 300)
and 4 metre (CDM 400) working widths.
The CDM is compatible with most of Kuhn’s power harrow equipment,
including track eradicators and alternative roller options. A robust
hitch frame, which is identical to those fitted on Kuhn power harrows,
gives the machine the design for intensive use.
