The PLANTER 3 seed drill is the result of a design sought after by the KUHN Group. Provided with an exceptional modularity in all precision seeding configurations, this range is distinguished by the quality of its precision, its adaptability to the needs of multiple farms and the regularity of its placement of seed on the row.Find Your Nearest Dealer Download Brochure
The sowing unit on the PLANTER 3 precision seed drills has been improved. First, the research and development team decreased the seed release height to less than 10 cm from the soil. Dedicated to any type of seed, this sowing unit has the best precision between seeds. There are three types of PLANTER 3 sowing units:
Distribution is another improved aspect of the PLANTER 3 sowing unit. Equipped with a high-strength aluminium casing, the selection of the seed is made by air depression, the selector has had its reliability increased and the mechanical ejection offers improved regularity.
Finally, the seed drill is equipped with a rigid parallelogram over its ensemble and an H-beam clamp to facilitate inter-row modifications.
KUHN has developed a PLANTER 3 range containing four families of different frames adapted to various uses:
Equipped with 2 to 6 wheels, the precision seed drills are equipped as standard with 25 l hoppers and optionally with 47 l capacity hoppers.
The PLANTER 3 range is expanded with a model dedicated to large or even very large farms: PLANTER 3 TRS. With 24 rows available and a spacing of 45 cm for sowing beets, you can sow intensively. For adaptation to lower power tractors, you can convert the machine with 16 or 18 rows with 70 cm spacing for corn and sunflower crops. This seed drill folds for transport into a width of 3.50 m, not adapted to the regulations of the European Union. It is equipped with the same precision seeding in terms of the sowing unit. You will therefore have a regular depth and a seeding density at regular intervals regardless of the type of seed.
Finally, the beams that support the seed drill adapt to the unevenness of the ground to maintain a constant seeding depth in all circumstances.
KUHN offers the possibility of equipping your Planter 3 precision seed drill with equipment that adapts to your needs. These equipment allow you to optimise your sowing depending on your type of soil, the stoniness, and the level of residues on the soil.
Here is the list of optional equipment available:
A separate fertiliser hopper is also possible. In fact, the TF 1512 can be combined with the PLANTER 3 precision seed drills for fertiliser application. This therefore allows large storage and maximum equilibrium.
Now you can monitor your sowing from your cabin thanks to our electronic boxes installed in your tractor. There are three distinct boxes for multiple uses:
In addition, you now have access to the ISOBUS CCI 1200 and 50 boxes to control your sowing steps. This will save you money by automatically cutting your rows by GPS. On the ISOBUS seed drills, these boxes are also compatible with the main terminals on the market (Fendt, JD, etc.).
