Kverneland as a specialist of drilling technology has extended the range of the u-drill seeding combination by adding the rigid version in 3m and 4m working widths. The u-drill works at high forward speeds, typically 10-18km/h, whilst maintaining a consistent sowing depth.
Uniform seedbed over the entire working width and precise seed application
Perfect soil preparation, levelling, re-compaction of the seedbed, seed placement and covering is carried out in one single pass – that saves time! High accuracy of distribution and precise depth control ensure a uniform seed emergence. Here, proven Kverneland components such as the Qualidisc short disc harrow are at work to ensure a fine and uniform seedbed over the entire working width. Exact metering of all sorts of seeds with application rates from 1 to 400kg/ha is achieved by the new electrically driven metering devices ELDOS.
Consistently good results
Optional equipment, various tools and a lightweight, yet sturdy design ensure that the u-drill is ready for operation in all sorts of conditions. For a perfect result, Kverneland recommends the fully equipped u-drill with front wheel packer.
Any important settings can be changed from a central point, at the push of a button. The coulter depth can be adjusted conveniently from the cab, calibration is started by pushing a button directly at the metering device, and the automatic headland management system only requires a single hydraulic control valve.
Fully ISOBUS compatible
It goes without saying that the u-drill is fully ISOBUS compatible, so the driver is always kept informed about the machine’s performance at a glance.
Another plus is the large hopper with its capacity of 3,000l (3/4m) resp. 4,350l (6m) and the easily accessible metering devices, ELDOS. Application rates and part widths can be controlled by the optional GEOCONTROL and the farmer can fully focus on driving in the field.
