Horsch has added new machines to the Cultro TC range, which have originally been available in 3m and 12m working widths – now it cans supply models with 5m, 6m and 9m widths.

On the 5m to 6m machines, the Cultro TC can be combined with other machines, such as the disc harrow, Joker CT. Another option is a rear attachment for the Cultro 5/6 and 9 CT. The Cultro 9 TC can even be combined with a three-row harrow.

An important feature of the Cultro system, is a double knife roller with a cross layout. The rollers are arranged over the whole working width and are equipped with six knives per roller.

The diameter of the roller body is very compact and thus guarantees a high number of revolutions and a high number of cuts per revolution.

In the field, due to the frame concept, the weight of the machine completely rests on the knife roller. The knives are attached at the rotor for stability.

In the future, Horsch also wants to offer the rear version in the range of 5m and 6m. A modification will not be possible but due to the various options from front attachment in the 3m to 6m range to rear attachment in 3m to 12m working width, all customer requirements can be met flexibly, it said.

The Horsch Avatar 12.25 SD seed drill has been equipped with some new options, including a new control concept.

The handling concept based on Isobus makes it easier for the farmer to adjust, operate and monitor the technology. Via the touch terminal the customer can adapt the terminal interface according to their requirements.

Due to the well-proven folding concept the transport dimensions on the Avatar are very compact. With an outside width of 3m, it is also ideal for road transport.

The newly developed seed hopper platform has a capacity of 6500 litres and can be ordered as a double hopper. The total capacity is distributed 60:40 but to increase the range even more especially for rape seed, a MiniDrill G and F is available as an option. This additional hopper has a capacity of 400 litres and is often used for small seed, as well as for granulates or slug pellets.

With its single row design with SingleDisc coulters and a row spacing of 25cm the Avatar 12.25 SD is ideal for mechanical population control, but also for the most different sowing methods.
