Precision and speed with yield gains
The FLEX PNEUMATIC articulated precision seed drill has a precise, simple and ergonomically adjusted vacuum metering unit that doesn’t require the use of tools when switching crop kits, with everything occurring quickly. This is a concept that accompanies KUHN’s pneumatic line, because assembly and fixation of the metering unit is all done by means of quick fittings and closures. Another feature of the FLEX is the hydraulic motor for its vacuum fan which requires low oil flow, extending the range of compatible tractors. Thus, the combination of the KUHN pneumatic seed row with the articulated FLEX frame results in a precision seed drill capable of planting in contoured areas with excellent operational performance and distinctive quality in the plant stand.
Perfect plantability on contours
Articulated frame and pneumatic row
The most efficient articulation system on the market, combined with KUHN’s pneumatic planting row with its high precision metering system and set of depth gauge wheels, capable of maintaining uniform seed placement depth. The PNEUMATIC FLEX articulated precision seed drill has the same articulation system as its mechanical distribution version. Its mechanisms are compact, light and feature great robustness and durability; unlike other competitors which have an axle extending from the front to the back of the frame. Another distinction of the PNEUMATIC FLEX is the position of the articulation system, which is located at the bottom of the frame, as close as possible to the ground. This concept ensures that, when planting, the variation in spacing between rows near the articulation is minimal - this characteristic is very important for an optimal plant stand in the field, especially in corn.
Robustness and durability with long service life
Innovative articulation limiter
The FLEX articulated precision seed drill was the first machine on the market with the innovative articulation limiting stop system. Developed by KUHN and later adapted by competitors on their machines, the system prevents articulation impacts from being transferred to the precision seed drill’s frame. A simple and robust system that extends the equipment’s service life, reducing the effort and impact on the frame when crossing contour lines or in rugged terrain. The FLEX PNEUMATIC articulated precision seed drill has the same system as its mechanical version, while also including the articulation locking system, aiding transport of the FLEX PNEUMATIC precision seed drill on trucks or platforms and letting the farmer choose to work with the fixed or articulated modules.
The row marker is robust, enabling a safer and more precise operation, avoiding overlapping rows and trajectory errors.
PM400 seed monitor
The PM400 monitor stands out for its accurate information and simplicity in use. It provides data on population, spacing between seeds per meter, total planted area, hours worked and average planting speed. It features an audible alarm for planting speed and skips in rows. Up to 4 functions can be viewed on the screen simultaneously.
Hydraulic N/Stop knife
The knife with Non/Stop hydraulic reset is efficient and robust. The closed hydraulic circuit allows for adjusting all rows at the same time. It can be quickly and ergonomically adjusted, and pressure is calibrated through a quick coupling with direct reading by the gauge located at the front of the precision seed drill.
