Horsch Express combi drill offers seed and fertiliser option

Development of a grain and fertiliser version of the Horsch Express KR power harrow mounted drill means that all the manufacturer’s seeders sold in the UK are available in both seed-only and combi formats.

Hopper capacity is increased to 2,000 litres in this case, providing sufficient space for a tonne each of seed and fertiliser. It is mounted on the harrow frame in a way that avoids affecting consistency of sowing depth.

Produced in 3m, 3.5m and 4m working widths, the Express KR features proven components from the Pronto seed drill integrated with a Horsch Kredo power harrow for one-pass final seedbed preparation and sowing.

Horsch TurboDisc 2 seed coulters are used, with four rubber dampers per coulter transferring up to 120kg to each disc.

They can be lifted out of work when the power harrow alone is needed – for additional cultivation on headlands, for example – and releasing four couplings allows the drill to be removed altogether.
