In the spring, the f-seeder can be combined with the Optima F-seeder or the Kultistrip cultivator for local fertilizer precipitation, but also work with the combined seeder with the e-drill rotary harrow, which functions as an additional seed container. In summer and autumn, it is an excellent companion for rotary harrows or KV seed rods.

F-drill, winning solutions and the job is easier

The F-drill – seen in the field with the Optima SX – can work at speeds of up to 8 kilometers per hour. The modular structure with possible ballast set ensures a uniform weight distribution and a excellent balance in the yard without obstructing the forward view. The self-steering packer wheel with lifting function eases the load on the front axle and gives good steering ability reduction of power and consumption requests.

Each fertilizer granule in the right place

The Pudama system concentrates pneumatically pre-defined amount of fertilizer in the coulter and then inject it and deposit it in the soil when the seed falls. ONE sensor connection between insert and distributor synchronize the application of seeds and fertilizers.
