Adaptable seeder offers effective crop establishment option

A cover crop seeding unit, compatible with a wide range of minimum tillage cultivators and capable of applying all types of seed, or fertiliser, at rates from 1 to 430kg/ha, is available from KUHN Farm Machinery.

The SH 600, equipped with KUHN’s Venta metering unit and with the option of 16, 20 or 24 outlets from the distribution head, is designed for uniform seed spread across a 3–9 metre working width. Seed is distributed via discharge plates located in front of the cultivator roller to achieve optimum soil-to-seed contact.

Precise and simple application rate settings are achieved using KUHN’s Quantron S2 control terminal, which aligns output with forward speed. Quantron S2 also monitors seed level and controls fan speed and metering unit speed.

With a 600 litre hopper, the SH 600 has big bag capacity, and the machine is fitted with a ladder and walkway to allow safe and easy access when filling.

The SH 600 is specifically designed to operate with KUHN’s Prolander, Performer, Optimer XL and Cultimer L 1000 minimum tillage and stubble cultivators and is sufficiently adaptable to work with other makes of machine.
