Contour sowing unit – smooth running for precise placement
The Contour sowing unit is guided via a longitudinal tandem, supported at the front by a one-sided press roller and at the rear by a V-press roller or Farmflex tyres. In this way the influence of the ground contours on the smooth ride of the unit is significantly reduced. Clods do not make the unit jump but it smoothly runs over them. So, any change in placement depth due to an uneven soil surface is minimised. The front press roller has been deliberately mounted just on the one side so that the soil, thrown up by the fertiliser coulter, does not create additional movement on the unit. Thanks to the suspension in the longitudinal tandem, the unit can, on the one hand, optimally match the field contours and on the other hand it maintains a very smooth run at high forward speeds and on rough ground. Both factors result in an optimum accuracy of work with a precise placement depth! The weight distribution on the two press rollers in the longitudinal tandem can be adjusted. Depending on the soil conditions, always the right operating settings can be found.
