Sowing following the plough or mulch sowing with pneumatic seed drill combinations

Mulch sowing made possible!

AMAZONE seed drill combinations have proven themselves by the hundred thousand both for cost saving mulch sowing and also when conventionally sowing following the plough.

When mulch sowing, the combination of rotary cultivator, wedge ring roller and seed rail with RoTeC Control disc coulters is recommended. The rotary cultivator loosens even hard packed soils and maintains its working depth due to the “on-grip” tines. The straw is simultaneously incorporated. Thanks to the large clearances between the tines and the trough, the straw-soil-mixture can pass through the machine above the tine carriers without a problem. The following levelling board levels any ridges and furrows.

The wedge ring roller reconsolidates the soil in strips so that one third of the soil is reconsolidated whereas two thirds of the surface remains loose. The RoTeC Control coulters then precisely place the seed into the reconsolidated strips.

Folding rotary cultivator in 4 m, 5 m or 6 m working widths

The benefits:

  • Quick changeover times between individual fields further increases profitability
  • Transferring from one field to the next is carried out quickly and simply: Just fold up hydraulically, drive on to the next field, unfold and start work!

“During our short test the KG rotary cultivator turned out to be a real ‘cookie monster’. And thanks to the new drive line, the new KG 6001-2 can now even cope with tractor capacities of up to 360 HP.”

The right working width for tractors of any power

The rotary cultivator in 4 m, 5 m and 6 m working widths folds hydraulically down to a 3 m transport width and is suitable for tractors up to 265 kW (360 hp).

Especially in farm-overlapping situations or under frequently changing operational conditions, the correct tine rotation speed is quickly adjusted by selecting the right gear. This ensures the optimum quality of work in any conditions.

The well-laid out, compact design of these extremely robust folding rotary cultivators makes them perfectly capable of high outputs, even in smaller fields.

The main gearbox on the folding rotary cultivator is equipped with a 2-speed lever change for rapid adjustment of the tine speed to different soils and working intensities.

Staggered tine layout guarantees smooth running

With AMAZONE rotary cultivators, the tines are arranged in a specific offset position towards each other. This guarantees an even soil crumbling and a smoother machine running. Incidents of vibration and peak loading are thereby prevented. The machines suffer less stress, and the power and fuel requirement is reduced.

  • 10 tool carriers in a 3 m working width provide you with more free space, more robustness and better through passage

  2. In comparison: Other rotary harrows: 12 tine carriers

Die „Extrem“-Steinteststrecke (1)

The “extreme” stone test track

All AMAZONE soil tillage implements are subjected to extreme stresses, being continuously tested on the stone torture track. This is not only the case for newly developed machines but also as part of series production supervision, meaning they are well prepared for the extremely wide range of operating conditions encountered when in actual use. This makes sure that you have the maximum of reliability with all AMAZONE rotary harrows and rotary cultivators.

Quick-System (1) Zinkenwechsel_Arm_lang_orange_110926


Tine quick change system

The tines are simply pushed into the sockets of the tine carrier and secured with a lynch pin. There is no easier and faster way. There are no tine fixing bolts that require retightening. Even converting tine operation from “on-grip” to trailing mode is quick and simple. The tines, which are forged from special hardened steel, are elastic and wear-resistant.

Safe-System (1) Steinsicherung_gesamt_d1_171020


Integrated stone protection

The sprung tine fixing system allows the tines to yield when stones are encountered. The tines are firmly clamped in the socket in the centre of the tine carrier. The socket becomes wider towards the outside so that the horizontal part of the tine can twist out of position while remaining sprung. Much of the shock is absorbed when the tip of the tine hits a stone. This tine fixing system ensures the safe operation in stony soils and allows the tines on both the KX and KG to be used in the “on-grip” mode.

Seed coverage with the Exact harrow or with the Exact harrow S

The Exact harrow covers and levels the open seed furrow without blockage even with large amounts of straw present. With its individually pivoting harrow elements, the Exact harrow follows the undulations of the soil perfectly, ensuring an even seed coverage on soils either with or without straw.

The harrow pressure is centrally adjusted mechanically via two spindles. During hydraulic harrow pressure adjustment, a minimum and maximum value is predefined by inserting pins. This way both the harrow and the coulter pressure are linked together and so can, during operation, be adapted to changing soil conditions by the use of just one tractor control valve.

In conjunction with the RoTeC+ coulter, the 15 mm strong Exact S following harrow can be used. It gives little wear and provides good seed coverage even in most difficult of operational conditions.

Pre-emergence markers

When creating tramlines, the marker discs automatically lower and mark where the tramline will be created. This means that the tramlines are visible prior to the seed emergence.
