New trailed seed hopper gives increased sowing capacity

Kuhn Farm Machinery has launched a new trailed seed drill tank to give arable growers the option of increased hopper capacity.

The new Kuhn TT trailed seed drill is available in two sizes: the TT 3500 with a 3,500 litre capacity, and the TT 6500 with a 6,500 litre capacity. Both versions feature a stainless steel volumetric metering unit and are equipped with a standard Category-3 rear attachment for connecting to a Kuhn seeding bar: the TT can be used with a folding BSDR coulter bar or with a Kuhn precision seeding drill bar – both versions are available in 6 to 9 metre working widths.

The new TT is ISOBUS compatible, with or without Kuhn’s CCI 200 terminal, and uses a highly accurate radar system to detect forward speed. The TT 3500 uses a single electrically driven metering unit while the TT 6500 is equipped with twin metering units: on both machines the metering units allow application rates to be accurately adjusted on the move.

The trailed hopper is fitted with large dimension floatation wheels as standard (600/55 – 26.5 wheels on the TT 3500, 710/50 – 30.5 wheels on the TT 6500) and is also available in a twin-wheel format. Hydraulic brakes are standard equipment.

The TT’s seed hopper has a large loading opening and low-loading height for quick and easy filling, and is fitted with a filtering sieve to protect the metering unit(s) from foreign objects. An access ladder and platform are fitted for operator convenience and safety, and a quick emptying hatch makes changing seed part-way through a load a quick and easy operation.

An optional VARIO seed blower makes the TT compatible with all tractors – even those with insufficient hydraulic capacity to drive the standard, pneumatically blown hopper.
