Kverneland ts-drill

The cost-efficient alternative

Various options combined with high performance and a relatively low purchase price makes the tine seeder ts-drill a real alternative among crop establishment systems. Especially in extreme conditions for example, humid soil or high straw residues, the advantages of the ts-drill become evident. The intelligent arrangement of the seeding tines over five rows allows the ts-drill to place the seeds accurately into the seedbed. The flexibility of the ts-drill allows its operation after the plough as well as with conservation tillage. Plug & Play! Using an industrial standard, the machine is connected directly with the ISOBUS terminal of the tractor. With the easily accessible new metering device Kverneland are setting new standards.

The Advantages:

  • Easy handling
  • Wide range of equipment
  • Easy and quick calibration with ELDOS
  • Ready for extreme conditions as humid soil or high crop residues
  • Well-proven ts-drill tines made of high quality spring steel fitted with the Kverneland leaf-spring auto-reset overload protection
  • Wheels mounted in the centre for excellent ground countour following

Five rows of tines

  • The intelligent arrangement of  the seeding tines over five rows allows the ts-drill to place the seeds accurately into the seedbed, even in conditions with high amounts of crop residues. The symmetrical distribution of the rear row of tines ensures excellent seed depth and levelling. The ts-drill can be ordered with tine spacings of 12.5 or 15cm. 
  • The seeding tines of the ts-drill are made of high quality spring steel fitted with the Kverneland leaf-spring autoreset overload protection. To ensure the free flow of crop residues through the machine, the tines are arranged in an off-set configuration over five rows.
  • The special design of the tines reduce the tractor power requirement and ensure uniform seed depth placement. Also in extremely humid and sticky soils, the ts-drill ensures perfect seeding results.
  • Tines in front of the landwheel ― stable running under all conditions
  • A tine in front of each landwheel levels the soil and ensures an even and steady running of the ts-drill - a prerequisite for the depth control of the seed placement with tine seeders. Due to the new design of the ts-drill, seeding can be carried out in a crossways direction to the previous cultivation operations.

Wheel Equipment

Equipped with the largest profile wheels of all machines in its class (11.5/80-15.3 10PR), the ts-drill offers significant advantages. The large diameter wheels of the ts-drill run smoothly and easily. The tyre pressure (approximately one bar) ensures the “footprint” of the machine being significantly reduced. Deep wheelings are avoided whilst the seed bed is protected against compaction.

The seeding depth is adjusted, without the need of any tools by using spacers on the wheels mounted in the centre of the main frame. This guarantees that the ts-drill will adapt perfectly to the ground contours and the sowing depth is simply more precise.

Following Harrow and Press Wheel

Following harrow

  • Effective seed covering after sowing is ensured by the twin row precision following harrow section as standard equipment.
  • The special design of the tines allows even high quantities of damp plant residues to pass through the harrow without blocking.
  • Optional the ts-drill can be equipped with the 2 row finger harrow for extremely stony conditions.
  • The harrow pressure and its aggressiveness can be adjusted via the spring pressure adjustment and the angle of the harrow bar.
  • As a second option the ts-drill can be equipped with a one-row V-harrow and press wheels. This offers the possibility of applying additional pressure. If the seed press wheels are not required due to very humid conditions, they can be completely lifted.

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 new metering device

  • The new metering device 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.

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.
