Express - Model KR - Three Point Seed Drill
From Seeding Technology
The Express KR is the first pneumatic HORSCH three-point seed drill with an active tillage tool: the integrated rotary harrow Kredo. Even under difficult conditions it allows for an intensive seedbed preparation. The rotary harrow Kredo has 10 rotating tools on 3 m working width. Its stable design is ideal even on stony soils. With quick-change tines it can be equipped with drag or TerraGrip tines. The fine-step adjustment of the working depth of the rotary harrow is easily accessible from the outside and is clearly visible. The adjustment of the levelling bar, too, is very easy.
There are 2 packer versions for the Express KR. The tooth packer roller with a large diameter of 64 cm is ideal for all conditions. The load carrying capacity is high even on light soils which influences the horse power requirement and the diesel consumption in a positive way. The trapeze ring packer has a diameter of 50 cm for a target strip consolidation in front of every seed coulter. It forms a perfect seed furrow even under heavy and cohesive conditions.
Due to their excellent adaptability (up to 15 cm) the TurboDisc seed coulters are able to precisely follow the soil surface. Thus, all grains are placed regularly and exactly at the set depth. Four rubber dampers per coulter (no greasing points) transfer a coulter pressure of up to 120 kg and guarantee a smooth coulter control even at high speeds.
The press wheels carry out an exact depth control of the coulters and guarantee an optimum seed-soil contact. The sowing depth is adjusted hydraulically. The frame of the Express KR is designed in such a way that the setting of the rotary harrow does not influence the sowing depth. The TurboDisc seed coulters can be lifted completely hydraulically. Thus the rotary harrow can also work solo. Moreover, the seed unit can be uncoupled easily from the rotary harrow via only 4 fixing points, thus allowing for using the Kredo separately.
