PowerDisc coulter on Horsch Pronto

The Horsch PowerDisc coulter, which debuted on the latest Serto drill, will now be available on the company’s Pronto DC drill. “It has proved highly effective and a popular choice on the Serto for those working heavy land, and we’re pleased to offer it as an option on the 3m, 4m and 6m Pronto DC in 2019,” explains Stephen Burcham, general manager at Horsch UK.

The PowerDisc coulter uses a parallelogram pivot that enables a pressure of up to 150kg per coulter, which is ideal for operating on heavier land. This proven design ensures that coulter has a more consistent sowing depth and slot closing in these conditions.

Designed for high-speed precise sowing after plough, mulch sowing or direct seed, the Pronto DC is offers precise depth control thanks to a preconfigured packer system and a choice of high-performance seed coulters.
