A relatively new name on the strip-tillage scene, Mzuri has updated its trailed and mounted drills. Hydraulic auto reset is now standard for the swept-back soil-loosening tines and there is now the option of double-disc coulters in place of the standard tine coulters.
On the mounted version, the 1,550-litre hopper has been moved closer to the tractor to minimise pitching on the road and on the 3m and 4m trailed machines the seed tank is now tapered to improve views to the coulter bar. Developed in-house, the metering system has also undergone a number of changes to maintain accuracy at high working speeds and warm air is now drawn from the fan down the coulter tubes to maintain an even flow of seed and fertiliser when drilling in damp conditions.
