Catch crop sowing technology

Catch crop sowing and soil tillage in one operational pass

Amazone Kompaktscheibenegge mit GreenDrill

To enable the sowing of catch crops directly or together with the soil tillage operation, AMAZONE offers the GreenDrill seeder box. It can be combined as well with the Catros, CatrosXL and Certos compact disc harrows as well as the Cenius mulch cultivator, the KG rotary cultivator or with the KE rotary harrow. The seed is distributed evenly by the spreader plates.
The GreenDrill seed hopper holds 200 l or alternatively 500 l and is easily accessed via the loading steps provided. Within the metering system located underneath the seed hopper, is a seed shaft that is equipped, depending on the type of seed and the application rate with either fine or normal seed wheels. The drive to the seed shaft is electric and that of the blower fan either electric or hydraulic.

Comfortable operation
For the control of the machine, the in-cab terminal 5.2 is available which gives the operator control of the seed shaft and the blower fan speed. In addition, an options' menu is available to assist the calibration as well as also indicating the forward speed, the worked area and the working hours. The seed shaft speed automatically matches to the varying forward speeds as soon as the on-board computer is connected via the 7-pin tractor signal socket.
