Lighter Kuhn combi

KUHN has lightened the load on its folding power harrow and Venta drill combination by mounting the seed hopper on the tractors front linkage.

The TF 702 front tank has a 700-litre capacity which can be increased to 1100 litres or 1300 litres by using a choice of hopper extensions.

Compatible with 4m and 4.5m Ventra drill combinations, the TF 702 is also compatible with non-folding 3m and 4m drills. Also at the front, is the metering unit, the same as on the firms Venta 02 series drills, giving 1.5kg to 450kg/ha seed rates and using electronic control for tramline management.

Seed delivery, via pipe from metering unit to distribution head, is pneumatic using air produced by a pto or hydraulically driven fan.

At the back of the combination, coulters are arranged in three rows, with coulter bars foldable with the power harrow to give a 3m transport width.

To allow power harrowing independent of drilling, the coulter bars and following tines can be hydraulically lifted from work. &#42
