Versatility for all crops
The SELECT seed drill offers all the precision of KUHN planters. Its pantographic planting units, both in the summer version for large grains and in the winter version for small grains, ensure great flotation regardless of relief, as well as correct fertilizer and seed delivery in the furrows. On the SELECT for planting summer crops, the seed unit is fitted with mini hopper, the metering unit with fluted disc and V-shaped press wheels. In addition, the SELECT has an 18" cutting disc, allowing fitting the fertilizer unit with double discs or blade, which offers total versatility for farmers. Added to all these factors, the speed and ergonomics for adapting the SELECT, provide the farmer with flexibility between seasons.
The SELECT seed drill drive of large grain seeding units is carried out by means of a differentiated system, constantly lubricated with lithium grease and sealed (which prevents contamination by impurities from the external environment). This system ensures minimum friction between gears and chain, preventing failures caused by chain disengagement and considerably reducing maintenance, which results in optimized component service life. The system follows the movement of the units and prevents seed disc speed variations, resulting in maximum planting precision. Moreover, using a chain tensioner or constant retightening are unnecessary, allowing the farmer to plant safely and with peace of mind.
Adjustments and calibrations without the need for tools
The SELECT is the ideal seed drill for farmers looking for simplicity, flexibility and lower costs. All its settings, from the gearbox to the deep gauge wheels and press wheels, are performed in a simple, fast and precise way, without requiring the use of any type of tool. In addition, from setting the fertilizer and seed application rates to choosing the seeding depth, the operator performs adjustments quickly, safely and ergonomically by means of a set of components that is available as standard for all versions. With a design based on these requirements, the SELECT result is a compact, robust seed drill sized for any needs of small and mid-sized farmers.
Sealed pantograph bushing
The planting units of the SELECT seed drill were designed to meet robustness and flexibility requirements of no-till planting. Featuring a pantographic hinge system that ensures the best flotation in rough terrain, the planting units can be quickly adjusted without the need for tools. In addition, they have a constantly lubricated system (which eliminates the need for periodic lubrication) and sealed bushings: their total sealing through o-rings and their internal grease reservoir ensure that the articulations are not affected by wear due to friction, minimizing the unit spacing and extending the durability of components and service life.
Superior planting quality
SELECT seeding units are pantographic and feature all assembly pivot points with sealed bushings for increased durability. Manufactured with cast iron components, the SELECT seed drill is robust and adapted to work on hills and level curves without misalignment, delivering the seed and fertilizer in the right place and ensuring superior performance whatever the relief: 35 cm of cutting pressure amplitude, which allows for working in soft and hard soils with the same performance and precision. Arranged over the frame on two tubes, the SELECT units deliver excellent performance, even in conditions with excessive straw volume.
Deep gauge wheels
The deep gauge wheels of the SELECT seed drill are pantographic and positioned just behind the discs, ensuring that, regardless of the relief, the seed and fertilizer delivery depth is homogeneous, resulting in an evenly emerging and thus high-yield crop. In addition, other SELECT features stand out: the deep gauge wheels have angle adjustment, allowing them to adapt to any type of soil, from heavy clay to sandy soil, closing and compacting the furrow; the full tread prevents accumulation of clay and straw, reducing clogging; and the tread depth and angle can be adjusted without the need for tools, providing for flexible and ergonomic adjustments.
This option allows for intercropping pasture seeding, serving the techniques of conservationism and soil preservation.
The row marker is robust, enabling a more precise and safer operation, avoiding overlapping rows and trajectory errors.
With full ergonomics and safety, the seeder is ready for transport in just a few minutes, streamlining the process of moving to a new plot.
