Lamma 2009: KRM adds power-harrow-ready Soladrill

North Yorkshire firm KRM has added a new model to its Soladrill range that is designed to mount on a power harrow or tined cultivator.

Called the 1706, it can drill into ploughed or min-tilled land alike.

There are three models with 3m, 3.5m and 4m working widths and the central 1200-litre hopper has a waterproof lid and a screen to protect from accidental blockages from labels or other foreign objects.

Tine coulters are fitted at 125mm row spacing and are mounted in three rows with maximum stagger to allow crop residue to flow through without blocking. The tip of each coulter sows seed in a 30mm band to give maximum seed spacing within the row.

Air-flow is generated by a 1000rpm pto-driven fan or by an optional hydraulically driven version. Most seeds can be drilled and rates can be varied from 200-400kg. Prices start at £12,995 for the 3m model.
