AMAZONE - USA
In order to be able to fill the Primera DMC with both seed and fertiliser, AMAZONE offers a hydraulically-driven filling auger. Using this system the filling time is kept down to just 15 minutes meaning that the output of the drill is even further extended. The two-piece filling auger is fixed to the back of the machine and, between the working position and transport, the bottom section of the auger, which includes the filling hopper, can be quickly and easily folded up. Thanks to the swivelling chute at the top end of the auger, the seed corn can be optimally distributed over the full width of the seed hopper. Due to a top lip height of only 70 cm on the filling funnel, the filling auger can be easily filled from a tipping trailer. The trailer just needs to be equipped with a slide and a chute so that the filling operation can be optimally regulated. As an option, AMAZONE also offers lorry trailer outlets. Drive and operation of the filling auger is carried out via the hydraulic system on the tractor. The tractor should have a hydraulic output of at least 50 l/min and requires a pressure-free return.
