Precise metering drive: Simple adjustment and comfortable calibration
On the precise, mechanical metering drive, the star wheel, in conjunction with the Vario gearbox, ensures a consistent drive of the metering unit on the seed hopper. Available as an option: electric seed rate adjustment via AmaTron 3. The emptying of the seed in the hopper is quickly and simply done via the quick emptying device which is easily accessible and fitted onto the hopper. For emptying any residual amounts, a slide is opened and the hopper contents emptied into the large calibration tray. The cassettes of the seed metering system can easily be exchanges. This allows the precise and gentle metering of all seed types and seed rates with excellent distribution along the row even at high forward speeds. As an option, the metering drive of the Avant can be regulated electrically via AmaTron 3. In conjunction with the electric drive, calibration is comfortable and fully automated. The electric drive also offers additional functions, such as, for instance, the pre-metering of the seed in field corners and the increase and decrease of the seed rate during operation.
