New Horsch TurboDisc coulter

Horsch has developed a new TurboDisc seed coulter for all seed drills with a double disc coulter, such as the Pronto, Express and Focus models. Key features of the new coulter design are the development of a new curved seed tube and a shallower angle of the Uniformer to reduce the drop angle of the seed. This results in a smoother and more accurate seed placement and more even seed germination.

The improved design also allows impact forces to be distributed more evenly for great reliability and resistance to wear. The development of the new coulter is now possible due to new advanced hydroforming manufacturing technique, a process currently used in automotive engineering and for the production of very high-quality bikes. Enormous pressure is used to press steel parts and tubes together into complex precision components.

In addition, the press wheel tyre is now softer and has a larger diameter, which prevents soil from sticking to the press wheel. The new scraper is slightly inclined and can be adjusted quickly and easily.
