Perfect planting on contours
The FLEX mechanical precision seed drill has an exclusive articulation system: 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 MECHANICAL 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 row spacing 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. It is a simple and robust system that extends the equipment’s service life, reducing the effort and impact on the frame when it crosses contours or rugged terrain. Additionally, the mechanical precision seed drill has a positioning hole for locking the articulation, helping to transport the FLEX on trucks or platforms, while at the same time letting the farmer choose to work with the fixed or articulated units.
FLEX MECHANICAL PRECISION SEED DRILL: Flexible configurations
Optional items for any working condition
The FLEX articulated precision seed drill has a wide range of options that meet all farmer needs. In the FLEX line, KUHN offers all of the main features and options that distinguish its line of mechanical precision seed drills. Sealed bushings in the pantographs, without grease maintenance points; adjustment and calibration systems in the transmission and in the safe and ergonomic planting units (which don’t require tools) are some examples of options for the FLEX mechanical precision seed drill. This set of items makes the FLEX a versatile machine that can adapt to any relief and soil conditions, favoring efficient, precise and quality planting for the farmer.
The row marker is robust, enabling a safer and more precise operation, avoiding overlapping rows and trajectory errors.
Titanium seed metering unit
Titanium provides the farmer with a reduced percentage of doubles and skips. Unique seed metering efficiency to increase profitability in the field.
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.
