AMAZONE - USA
ED 6000 Special – Designed for simpler and older tractors
The ED 6000 Special precision air seeder from choice can be equipped with or without the 1,100 l fertiliser hopper. The seed hoppers have a capacity of 60 l each. With a choice of sowing systems, the Classic unit is ideal for sowing after the plough whereas the Contour unit is better suited for mulch sowing. Fertiliser placement can be carried out either via drag coulters or, when mulch sowing, by the use of a single disc coulter. The demands on the tractor hydraulic and electrical system are very low. With the ED 6000 Special, the blower fan, for instance, is driven via the PTO shaft. The singling drive and the fertiliser metering are carried out mechanically via the land wheel. For monitoring the singling procedure, and as a hectare meter, AMASCAN+ is used. AMAZONE offers the ED 6000-C Special as an 8 row machine with fertiliser hopper for under-root fertilisation. For sowing sugar beet, rape or soya, AMAZONE equips the ED 6000 with twelve units. The precision air seeder can be optionally ordered with up to two micro-granular applicators.
