Kverneland e-drill compact & e-drill maxi

This integrated seed drill is efficient, precise and operator-friendly

The range of Kverneland e-drill as integrated power harrow mounted seed drills allow active seed bed preparation, consolidation and precise seed placement in one pass. Time pressure in the autumn and spring ask for an efficient and versatile seed drill combination, like the Kverneland e-drill.

Operator-friendly - innovative and precise 

The proven concept and clear design of the e-drill maxi and e-drill compact, together with the high level of incorporated intelligent technology ensure precise and reliable performance. With the innovative pneumatic seed drill, the operator has maximum ease of use, from set-up and filling to operation and transport. 

A parallelogram and a quadruple joint of the e-drill ensure the optimum adjustment of the power harrow and coulter bar for a perfect depth control and thus precise seed application. The seed hopper is mounted directly on the three-point linkage of the Kverneland power harrow for a close centre of gravity and, therefore, reducing the requirement for lifting power.

The e-drill compact and e-drill maxi seed drills are available in working widths of 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 metres. The compact version offers a hopper capacity of 1,100 respectively 1,400 litres with hopper extension; whereas the e-drill maxi seed drill has a high-capacity hopper of 1,600 respectively 2,000 litres with hopper extension.

The hinged hopper can easily be filled with a front loader, big bags or filling auger. The loading platform between seed hopper and distribution head ensures safe access for filling and maintenance purposes.

Optional extra seeder 

As an option for an even further extended scope of application, Kverneland has integrated the well-known a-drill onto the e-drill. This extra seeder with separate hopper and metering device will allow applying an additional sort of seeds/fertiliser. 

 

  Advantages of Kverneland e-drill compact and e-drill maxi:

  • Close centre of gravity for reduced lifting power requirement
  • Simple and reliable calibration with electric-driven metering device ELDOS: self-monitoring and easily accessible 
  • Simple and independent depth adjustment of the power harrow and the coulterbar for even depth control and seed placement
  • Precise seed placement by CX-II coulters
  • Central depth and pressure adjustment of the following harrow
  • Working lights inside and outside of the hopper allow safe use even in darkness

Pneumatic System - ELDOS

  • The metering device ELDOS accurately measures the required volume of seed by the distinctive rotor and discharges it into the seed injector where is is mixed with the air stream and then conveyed through the diffusor tube and the seed delivery hoses to the coulters. 
  • The distribution head is mounted in a protected position inside the seed hopper.

ELDOS - the metering device

  • ELDOS is electric driven by e-com and is fully ISOBUS compatible.
  • GEOCONTROL by GPS signal is possible which avoids double seeding.
  • Special sensors ensure functionality from the tractor cab.
  • Five standard rotors are delivered: for fine and large seeds or fertiliser.
  • The exchange of the rotors is quickly and easily done without any tools.
  • Application rates from 1 to 400kg/ha are possible (depending on working speed and width).
  • The metering device is always easily accessible. 

Calibration

  • Very simple calibration test due to the separate seed guidance.
  • A remote control allows the driver to operate the calibration process at the metering device.  
  • No gear has to be adjusted. The driver simply enters the desired values into the terminal, presses one button to start at the metering device and that’s it.
  • The calibration is done automatically.
  • A calibration flap with an integrated gate prevents any seed from dropping into the hose.

CX-II coulter

  • The CX-II disc coulter from Kverneland not only guarantees smoother running but also exact seed placement.
  • The flatter cutting angle of only 5.4° of the steel disc requires less pulling power to reach a constant seeding depth of up to 6cm.
  • Due to the combination of the steel disc with a diameter of 325 mm and the flexible plastic disc, there is no need for independent scrapers, saving the cost for expensive wearing parts. In addition the coulter is completely maintenance-free!
  • Up to 35 kg coulter pressure can be achieved by a pre-loaded spring. Safe operation is ensured when working with high working speeds and high quantities of plant residues on the soil surface.
  • An inter-row coulter spacing of 445 mm for maximum clearance and the following press wheel (standard equipment) ensure an optimum seed/soil contact in all conditions.
  • The press wheels can be set in fixed or floating position in order to be able to adapt quickly to changing weather, soil or working conditions.

Integrated extra seeder

For an extended scope of application, Kverneland has integrated the well-known Kverneland  a-drill.  This extra seeder with separate hopper and metering device will allow applying an additional sort of seeds/fertilizer all in one pass.

Sustainable and efficient

There are good reasons to promote the establishment of additional crops or to apply extra nutrients whilst seeding. An additional crop will suppress weed growth but not compete with the leading crop. The extra crop catches the mineral nitrogen in the soil as well as air nitrogen, when mixing with leguminous plants, transforming it into organic nitrogen. Thus, nitrogen will still be available for the next crops. Fertilisers are applied most precisely to support plant growth, specifically during youth development avoiding its wash-out into groundwater.

Wide scope of application

The scope of application and possible variations for this integrated seed drill are manifold:

With the e-drill compact/maxi, one type of material is precisely deposited by the CX-II coulter; whereas the second material is applied via the baffle plate from the integrated a-drill into the soil flow of the following harrow:

1. 2 types of material in one pass: 1 type of seed (e.g. rape) plus slug pellets

2. 2 types of seeds: e.g. barley by the coulter plus clover/grass via the following harrow

The e-drill maxi plus, as the combined grain and fertiliser model of the power harrow mounted seed drill, is already equipped with a divided hopper with adjustable ratio of 60:40, 70:30 or 100:0 and two independently working metering devices.

Here, two sorts of material are precisely deposited by the double-entry coulter CX-II (2 distribution heads); whereas the third sort of material is applied via the baffle plate of the integrated a-drill into the soil flow of the following harrow:

  1. 3 sorts of material in one pass: 1 sort of seed (e.g. wheat/barley) plus fertiliser in the sowing rows plus slug pellets via the following harrow
  2. 3 sorts of material in one pass: 1 sort of seed (e.g. wheat/barley) plus fertilser in the sowing row plus 1 sort of seed (e.g. clover) via the following harrow
  3. 3 sorts of material in one pass: 2 sorts of seed in different sowing rows (e.g. beans & rape seed) plus slug pellets via the following harrow
  4. 3 sorts of material in one pass: 2 sorts of seed in the sowing row (e.g. beans & rye) plus 1 sort of seed (e.g. clover) via the following harrow

 Advantages

  • Utmost efficiency and cost saving by combined application of various sorts of seeds plus/or fertilizer all in one pass
  • Encouraged root development
  • Reduced risk of erosion
  • Increased sustainability
  • Increased biodiversity and humus content

Euro-Connection

Flexibility is key!

The coulterbar can be easily coupled and uncoupled with a coupling hook similar to the front loader coupling. Track markers are attached to the power harrow. Therefore, the power harrow is ready for solo operation within short time. The coulterbar is attached with the Euro-Connection directly to the roller frame and can quickly and easily be hitched thanks to the readily accessible hydraulic and electronic interface.

The e-drill is exclusively designed to be combined with Kverneland power harrows. 

e-drill - Electronic Control

For the electronic control of the e-drill, a whole range of steering systems is available

Focus 3
