Transporting machines and implements from one area to another with ease and safety is a need that has been growing due to a new reality of field work. In this sense, the reduction of the transport width for easier passage through gates, on bridges or even narrow roads is crucial. With this in mind, the pneumatic PRIME AT planter was developed aiming for an efficient transport solution. Its sturdy structure, with hoppers mounted along the chassis, levels the weight distribution throughout the machine structure, equalizing the pressure of the pantograph frames on the ground. Besides, featuring a high cutting power, central chassis articulation and high fluctuation lines combined with the Precision Planting drills, ensures high quality planting regardless of soil or straw conditions.

Convenient and efficient transport

Transporting the planter from the farm to the field, as well as maneuvers between planting plots located at various distances, passing through gates and on narrower bridges, is a need that has been growing over the last few years. With the pneumatic PRIME AT planter, the operator can control the planter extension and retraction with great ease and safety, directly from the tractor cabin. With the aid of two tractor double-acting valves, the pneumatic PRIME AT is switched from its working position to transport position in less than a minute, ensuring that its displacement happens safely and efficiently.

Chassis with central articulation

The pneumatic PRIME AT planter enables planting with high operational efficiency, ensuring a uniform plant stand and significant increase in productivity. The presence of a central articulation allows the planter to travel 8° downwards and 13° upwards. This characteristic, combined with the high fluctuation of the pantograph frames, ensures the units are always in contact with the soil for quality planting, regardless of soil or straw conditions. The pneumatic PRIME AT planter is capable of perfectly following ground contours, providing uniform seed delivery depth, which is essential for perfect seed germination.

Greater robustness

Bearing in mind the most challenging working conditions that a planter can encounter, the pneumatic PRIME AT was developed with wider and more robust wheels to provide greater load capacity to withstand day-to-day work in the field and transport with total safety and agility. The resistance also extends to the new concept of self-supporting chassis that had as its principle to provide a compact and robust structure, ensuring a longer useful life for the whole unit. The weight distribution along the chassis of the pneumatic PRIME AT planter results in a stable machine and allows all planting units to receive the same ground pressure, helping to cut and penetrate harder soil. This is made possible due to the fact that pneumatic PRIME AT seed hoppers are distributed over the entire length of the chassis.

High cutting power

The pneumatic PRIME AT planter has a combination of components that results in excellent cutting power, even in conditions where the volume of straw reaches high levels. Its cutting disc has sufficient vertical travel range and turning radius to perform shearing work efficiently and with quality. Efficient straw cutting is very important so that seeds are not stopped from making contact with the soil and, consequently hampering germination and access to nutrients. In addition, the pneumatic PRIME AT planter offers options for different soil conditions and smooth and notched cutting discs. The latter, in addition to cutting the straw, provides soil movement and loosening, avoiding the mirroring of the furrow and facilitating the penetration of the fertilizer and seed coulters.

Fertilizer metering units

Dosing the fertilizer accurately and evenly, in addition to ensuring its correct positioning at the base of the furrow, are fundamental factors to eliminate waste and maximize the absorption of nutrients by the plants. For this purpose, the pneumatic PRIME AT has the Toplanting fertilizer metering unit as standard, which, with its double endless screw system, achieves high spreading stability both in volume and in pulsation, distributing the same amount of fertilizer in any degree of inclination, longitudinal or lateral. As an option, the Fertisystem dispenser is available, which stands out for working with an always full screw and having a damming chamber, which overflows quantities of uniform and homogeneous fertilizer, regardless of grain size and topographic variations of the crop.

Low soil turnover

The pneumatic PRIME AT planter has a furrow opener with double discs of different sizes and with concentric axes, optional for the fertilizer line and as standard for the seed line. Among the benefits of this concept, in relation to systems with discs of same size and with misaligned axes), we can mention the greater soil penetration capacity combined with the lower rotational speed of the furrow opener, as they have a smaller angle between the discs. This characteristic is fundamental because, when carrying out an operation with less soil movement, the pneumatic PRIME AT planter provides all the benefits of direct planting, resulting in increased productivity for the producer.

User-friendly adjustments

The pneumatic PRIME AT planter has the same concept as the KUHN planter line when it comes to adjustments and calibration. Like other planters and seeders, the main adjustments of the pneumatic PRIME AT do not require using tools, as they are equipped with mechanisms that value the operator's agility and safety. Adjustments in fertilizer and seed transmission, depth of seed deposition and compactor pressure are the main examples of necessary and fundamental calibrations for planting. With that in mind, the pneumatic PRIME AT planter has systems that speed up the adjustment of the machine and facilitate the daily life of the producer.

High flotation pantographs

The ability to follow changes in relief during planting is essential for maintaining the constant depth of seed deposition in the furrow. With 45 cm of width, the pantographic lines of the pneumatic PRIME AT planter, have one of the biggest fluctuations on the market, capable of providing an efficient planting in any relief condition and straw volume. The four movable points combined with an internal spring system with adjustable pressure, allows the vertical oscillation necessary for planting with quality in the most challenging terrain conditions. The presence of technologies that do not require daily lubrication of the pantograph joints saves time and are exclusive features that increase the productivity and useful life of the equipment.

Precision Planting pneumatic dosers

Recognized for providing excellent planting quality, the pneumatic PRIME AT planter has a precise, simple vacuum doser with ergonomic adjustments that facilitates and eliminates the use of tools when changing kits for different types of crops. In this system, all the assembly and fixation of the doser is carried out by means of quick fittings and closures. In addition, the pneumatic PRIME AT has a flexible shaft in the transmission of the planting lines that does not require chains and cardans. It is a set, developed exclusively for the pneumatic doser. These characteristics, combined with the constructive concept of the pneumatic PRIME AT planter, make the vacuum turbine require low oil flow, expanding the range of compatible tractors in addition to providing greater safety and long life to the set.

Planting monitoring

With intuitive settings for operation, the MP36 seed monitor stands out for the accuracy of the information and the simplicity of its use. Thus, it is possible to simultaneously visualize the seed fall in up to 36 lines, in addition to providing data on seeds per linear meter, seeds per hectare, working speed and total planted area. Its illuminated screen allows night work, while an audible and luminous alarm warns of the occurrence of failures for greater convenience and total safety during planting. In addition, it allows communication with the Fieldview system to generate planting maps and report faults per line.

Perfectly packaged seeds

The uniformity of seed deposition in the soil is as important as its spacing within the furrow. Planter - the depth limiter assembly of the pneumatic PRIME AT - is designed with closed-rim limiting wheels that help keep the earth in the furrow. The possibility of adjusting the angle between the limiting wheels provides a better performance during planting, regardless of the amount of straw in the soil. Its high independent oscillation capacity improves its efficiency in monitoring irregularities in the most varied types of soils. Finally, the densification of the soil next to the seeds is carried out by a robust compactor that has pressure and angle of action adjustment.
