Kosma seed drills: agile and efficient
New addition to the Kuhn stable. Kosma is the name of a series of pneumatic precision seed drills which, as the French manufacturer himself explains on its website, combines the precision of the Maxima seed drill range with the agility of the Planter models. Designed starting from the Maxima 3, from which it takes its salient features, the Kosma line is as easy to manoeuvre as it is intuitive to use. The strength of the new Kuhn seed drills is their low weight (the sowing element weighs a mere 95 kilos) which positively affects the machine's manoeuvrability and allows it to be used in conjunction with medium-low power tractors. From an operational point of view - explains Kuhn - this means lower fuel consumption and less soil compaction during sowing. In short, the Kosma series is suitable for those farmers looking for a work tool that is user-friendly albeit suitable for professional use, to process up to 500 hectares of land per year. Another valuable element of the latest addition to the Kuhn family is the freedom of configuration. The new seeders can be equipped, for the time being, with with four-row type M fixed frame, six-row TD (double telescopic) equipped with a 950-litre hopper for fertilizer in combination with disc coulters (a solution designed especially for cooperatives and contractors). It can also be configured with an even lighter R-shaped folding frame, ideal for sugar beet, for rapeseed, and more generally for horticultural crops. This latest version, characterized by a working width of 6 metres, is available in the 8-row or 12-row version. All models are available with mechanical or electric transmission.
