Amazone unveils 4m Cataya drill option

Amazone has introduced a 4m-wide version of its popular Cataya drill, which becomes the second new model in the range this year.

In comparison to the 3m model, the 4000 Super has a bigger 1,180-litre hopper and a 550-litre hopper extension, with working speeds around 12kph possible.

The combination drill has the Precis metering system to switch between small and large seed quickly, with optional electric metering from both sides of the drill for half-width shut-off.

Calibration and depth of the double-disc coulters are adjusted in the SmartCentre, and the drill can have either 12.5cm or 15.4cm row spacings.  

Up top, there’s a choice of harrow or cultivator tines for the power harrow and the Cataya 4000 also has hydraulic coulter pressure adjustment.
