It’s not all 24m seeders and mammoth cultivators – this 3m Sola Trisem-2110 cultivator drill from KRM is priced at just under £10,000 for smaller growers wanting a simple mechanical drill capable of working in cloddy or mintill seedbeds without being slowed by a power harrow.


A removable cultivator toolbar deploys a staggered row of spring-loaded tines ahead of three rows of tine coulters – alternatively, two rows of auto reset coulters can be had for particularly stony ground.

A stepless variator controls seed delivery from the 1270-litre hopper.

There are also 3.5m and 4m sizes.
