Kverneland e-drill compact & e-drill maxi

New integrated pneumatic seed drill - extremely operator-friendly

Kverneland is introducing two models of the new integrated pneumatic seed drills, the e-drill compact and e-drill maxi. These two models allow seedbed preparation, re-compaction and sowing in one pass.

The e-drill compact is offered with a hopper capacity of up to 1400 litres, the e-drill maxi up to 2000 litres.

Operator-friendly - innovative and precise depth control

A parallelogram and a quadruple joint of the e-drill ensure the optimum adjustment of the power harrow and coulterbar for a precise seed application. Important: the adjustment of the power harrow has no impact on the coulterbar respectively the sowing depth.

  Advantages:

  • Close centre of gravity for reduced lifting power requirement
  • Easily accessible metering device ELDOS
  • Simple and independent depth adjustment of the power harrow and the coulterbar
  • Precise seed placement by CX-II coulters
  • Central depth and pressure adjustment of the following harrow

Highlights

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.
  • Four standard rotors are delivered for fine and large seeds or fertiliser.
  • A fifth rotor is offered as an option for maize, sunflowers and greening seeds.
  • The exchange of the rotors is quick 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.

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 (H-series and NGS). 

e-drill - Electronic Control

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

Focus 3
Focus 3 is the new terminal steering the e-bas system which features hopper low level sensor, various tramline systems, information about ha, km/h monitoring of fan speed, pre-emergence marker, seed rate adjustments. Focus 3 is not ISOBUS compatible. 

IsoMatch Tellus GO
The multifunctional one-screen terminal has been developed for fast and simple control of all ISOBUS implements, giving the farmer a ‘customer made’ experience as it suits all needs for plain and efficient handling of farming machinery and tasks. IsoMatch Tellus GO is the farmer’s first step into Precision Farming. With the easy to use application, IsoMatch GEOCONTROL, it is possible to boost efficiency and save time and costs. The application includes Manual Guidance, Section Control and Variable Rate.

IsoMatch Tellus

  • Two ISOBUS interfaces in one terminal
  • Multifunctional ergonomic design
  • ISOBUS Shortcut Button (ICB)

The IsoMatch Tellus is the first ISOBUS terminal in the world with the capability to operate two different (machine) screens through one terminal, without the need to constantly toggle between screens. Via the ISOBUS connection, IsoMatch Tellus automatically identifies the job control unit, which is located on the machine.

Flow-Check seed-flow monitoring
Kverneland Group offers an optional seed flow check system for pneumatic seed drills. This is an independent system which monitors the seed distribution tubes immediately recognising and reporting any blockages or errors. The display indicates the affected seed delivery tube, making it possible to localise and remove the problem quickly. The system is suitable for all common seed types and can be fitted retrospectively on all pneumatic seed drills.
