The EDX range from AMAZONE stands for high efficiency

All models have in common that they can be operated, both following conventional or conservation soil tillage or for direct seeding. This applies equally as well when sowing maize, sunflowers and rape. The trailed EDX 6000-TC and 9000-TC are ideally suited to large sized fields. Experience in practice shows that with an EDX 9000-TC, depending on the farm, a seasonal output of up to 1,500 ha is possible whereas with, for the smaller EDX 6000-TC, the value amount to approx. 900 ha respectively.

Uncompromising in large area operation

As the flagship of the EDX precision air seeders, the trailed EDX 9000-TC with its 9 m working width has been designed without compromise for operation in large fields. Many EDX 9000-TC have managed 1,000 ha and more in just one sowing season to the utmost satisfaction of their owners. The EDX 9000-TC features two centralised seed hoppers each of 400 l capacity with a 5,000 l fertiliser hopper capacity. As for the EDX 900-TC, AMAZONE also offers a filling auger as a special option for the quick and simple filling of the fertiliser hopper. The EDX 9000-TC can be specified in row spacings of  45 cm, 50 cm, 55 cm, 70 cm, 75 cm or 80 cm. In Germany this machine is delivered as standard with air brakes and a permit to travel at 40 km/h.

Less lifting power on the tractor required

With its 6 m working width the EDX 6000-TC is the "smaller" of the two trailed EDX models although still designed for huge seasonal outputs from 600 to 900 ha. The trailed EDX 6000-TC requires, in comparison with a mounted machine, less lifting power on the tractor. The precision seeder features a central 600 l seed hopper plus a fertiliser tank with a capacity of 3,000 l. These supply enough seed and fertiliser for about 20 ha without the necessity to refill seed or fertiliser. For filling the fertiliser hopper AMAZONE offers a filling auger as special option. The EDX 6000-TC can be equipped for all commonly used row spacings of 37.5 cm to 80 cm. In Germany this machine is delivered as standard with air brakes and a permit to travel at 40 km/h.

Dual tyres

For row spacings of 70 and 75 cm, the seed row behind the tyres is not run on thanks to the new dual tyres. Especially on heavy, wet soils the dual tyre avoids soil compaction which would result in a delayed plant growth.

80 cm row spacing? No problem!

In Southern France maize is sown at a row spacing of 80 cm. The appropriate specification is possible for all the models in the range

Safer road transport

The running gear on the trailed EDX 6000-TC and 9000-TC seeders is equipped with oversized tyres 700/40-22.5 or 700/50-26.5, an air-braking system and a permit for transport speed of up to 40 km/h. Thanks to the sophisticated folding mechanism all EDX precision air seeders can be folded for road transport down to 3 m transport width.

Erosion decree ready

After the introduction of the EU-wide erosion decree on July 1st, 2010 row crops, such as maize, when grown in fields where there is a risk of water erosion such as soils in the CCwater2 danger class may only be grown in row widths of less than 45 cm where the prior soil tillage was with the plough. Here the EDX precision air seeder range offers a suitable solution.

Designed for efficiency without compromise

Not only is it the high operational speed of the EDX precision air seeders that results in an increase in efficiency but also the noticeably reduced set-up time and unproductive periods. Users confirm that the machines are fully designed for professional usage even down to the detail such as, for example, hopper lid seals or lever adjustments.

Narrow sowing in discussion

When sowing maize with on a narrow row spacings below 75 cm the plants develop better in early growth in specific conditions. However, also presently, the precision sowing rape with row spacings of 37.5 or 45 cm is discussed. Here also, Amazone offers the perfect solution.

On-board hydraulics

On the EDX 6000-TC, the possibility exists to use a PTO shaft driven, on-board hydraulic system for the blower fan instead of the spool valve of the tractor. This is particularly attractive when the output of tractor’s hydraulic system is too low and it may not be able to provide an adequate supply to the machine.

LED lighting

For improved lighting of the coulter frame, LED work lights on the fertiliser hopper and LED individual coulter lighting is also available. The lift and drop points are also easier then to determine when sowing at night.
