Simultaneous sowing: GreenDrill


To enable you to sow intermediate catch crops directly together with stubble work or with soil tillage when reseeding grass, AMAZONE offers the new GreenDrill mounted seeder box. It fits together as well with the Catros compact disc harrow as it does with the Cenius mulch cultivator or the KG rotary cultivator and the KE rotary harrow.       The GreenDrill seed hopper holds 200 l and is easily accessed via the loading steps provided. Within the metering system located underneath the seed hopper, is a seed shaft that is equipped, depending on the type of seed and the application rate with either fine or normal seed wheels. The drive to the fan and the seed shaft is via an electric motor, or alternatively, hydraulically.  For the control of the seeder, two alternatives with differing levels of operational comfort are available. The GreenDrill terminal, in its basic format, just provides the switching on and off of the seed shaft and the fan plus the initial setting of the seed shaft speed. Additionally in Comfort specification, the terminal offers a menu selection to support the calibration procedure, a display of the forward speed and both the area covered and the hours worked.
