The VENTA 100 range of pneumatic seed drill combinations offers a working width of 3.00 meters and a hopper capacity of 850 litres. Thanks to their light and compact design, they are suitable for tractors from 120 hp. They are designed to make all essential machine adjustments quick and easy. Seeding can be managed with an ISOBUS terminal. The KUHN VT 30 terminal is the ideal solution for non-ISOBUS tractors! The QUANTRON S-2 terminal makes it possible to monitor distribution and modulate the seed application rate from the tractor cab. Easy to combine with KUHN HRB 302, HRB 303, HR 304 and HR 3004 power harrows, and equipped with Suffolk coulters (VENTA 310) or single-disc coulters (VENTA 320), these pneumatic seed drills prepare the seedbed and drill in a single pass. Opt for this new simple, integrated, and efficient seeding solution!

Your Benefits

Lightweight, compact design and low costs

Centre of gravity close to the tractor

The seed drill is directly attached to the frame of the power harrow. Its center of gravity is thus closer to the tractor, which allows good machine manoeuvrability in the fields and during road transport, as well as excellent visibility of the seeding units. The power needed to raise the seed drill combination has also been reduced.

A lighter coulter bar

The coulter bar of the VENTA 100 seed drill range has been designed to reduce the weight at the rear of the seed drill as much as possible while maintaining its sturdiness

An optimized pneumatic circuit

Hydraulic blower drive
The Venta 100 seed drill range is equipped with a hydraulic blower drive that is independent of the tractor PTO speed. Thus, the blower’s speed is not affected by fluctuations in the engine speed. This has many advantages:

  • easy adjustment of the blower rotation speed, a constant flow of seeds to the seeding units and fuel savings.

Reduced oil consumption
Thanks to an optimized pneumatic circuit, it is now possible to reduce the blower speed. Enjoy reduced oil consumption with only 15 l/min for small seeds and 26.5 l/min for large seeds. A sensor on the blower drive monitors the speed and triggers an alarm in the event of excessive speed.

A comfortable, simple and intuitive seeding experience

Fast and simple adjustments

The VENTA 100 seed drill range has been designed so that all essential machine adjustments are quick and easy to perform.
The seeding depth is adjusted on both sides of the seed drill using a crank and a spanner. A marker explicitly indicates the direction of rotation. The open-end wrench can be stored on the seed drill to always be close at hand.
The coulter pressure of each seeding unit is adjusted at once using a crank located next to the coulter bar. Hydraulic adjustment of the coulter pressure is available as optional equipment.

Everything within reach!

The hopper can easily be filled with a big bag thanks to its large opening. Its access is facilitated by a wide loading platform and a retractable ladder.
The distribution head is located at the rear of the hopper. A step facilitates access for cleaning tubes or when changing seeds.
To make the calibration test as simple as possible, all essential tools are at your fingertips. The operator’s manual is stored at the level of the ladder and the calibration bag under the hopper. A retractable and extendable holder allows you to hang the scale (supplied as optional equipment) and the bag. The metering unit is also easily accessible. An on/off button to start or stop the calibration test is placed on the hopper near the metering unit.

ISOBUS tractor or not, we have the solution!

Seeding can be managed with an ISOBUS VTI 60, CCI 800, CCI 1200, or any other ISOBUS terminal available on the farm. The KUHN VT 30 is the ideal solution for non-ISOBUS tractors! Just one power cable is required to change from one to the other. ISOBUS CCI 800 and CCI 1200 terminals make it possible to manage seeding automatically by GPS, including tramlining, application rate modulation with the TC-GEO function, and stopping/starting the seed drill at the end of the plot with the Section Control (TC-SC) function.

Quality sowing in all conditions

The VENTA metering system

The VENTA metering system is recognized for its simple design and its precise and regular work. The centralized metering unit with volumetric fluted roller makes it possible to distribute all types of seed, from the smallest to the largest, with a rate precision ranging from 1 to 430 kg/ha. There is no need to disassemble or change parts on the metering unit, even for small seeds. To protect delicate seeds, it is also possible to disengage the agitator without tools. The metering unit is electrically driven, which allows you to modulate the seed application rate directly from your tractor cabin.

Regular seeding depth

The coulter pressure is adjustable up to 25 kg for the Suffolk coulters (VENTA 310) and up to 32 kg for the single disc coulters (VENTA 320) to maintain sufficient seeding depth in heavy soils or when seeding deeply at high speed. The lower stop adjustment allows precise control of the seeding depth, including in plots with variable soils or when carrying out shallow seeding with significant pressure. These settings are independent from each other.

Coulter bar guided by the power harrow roller

The coulter bar is guided by the power harrow roller. In this way, the seeding depth is always constant, independent of the working depth of the power harrow. Adjusting one does not affect the position of the other.

VENTA 320: excellent ground adaptation

The seeding units are distributed over two rows 27 cm distant. This design prevents clogging even in wet conditions or with crop residues. Featuring a large diameter disc ((Ø 327 mm), the single disc seeding unit ensures optimal furrow opening quality. The slight disc angle reduces soil ejection on the row which is particularly valuable when seeding at high speed. A cast iron coulter on the side of the disc consolidates the furrow and precisely delivers the seed on the soil.

VENTA 310: versatility of the Suffolk coulter seeding unit

The VENTA 310 seed drill is fitted with Suffolk coulter seeding units requiring little maintenance. The latter are adapted to seeding in clayey, sticky or stony soils. The coulters are arranged over 3 rows 33 cm distant allowing crop residues to pass easily.
