Maxima 3 TRR 8-row compact and stable

Kuhn is expanding its range of single-seed sowing drills with a new 8-row folding, trailed frame layout for maize, using 70 and 75cm spacing. 

The set-up can sow eight rows using a tractor of about 100hp; its carries 1500L of fertiliser. 

The drill has the patented Kuhn Stabidrive helping keep it stable during road transport and headland turns; it also helps to keep the drill aligned when sowing on undulating and hilly terrain. 

Said to be ideal for farmers and contractors who prefer to load the seed drill at a farm or base, the Maxima 3 TRR 8-row is road-certified for travelling fully loaded, and it conforms to 3m wide transport regulations for transport. 

Easy access to the hoppers via its broad access platform makes for easy filling of the fertiliser and micro-granular hoppers. 

Four load-bearing wheels are fitted as standard to prevent soil compaction and provide improved terrain following during sowing. The two central wheels also mechanically drive the sowing drill and fertilising components. 

With simple adjustment and sturdy construction, the new drill is said to be well-balanced; it can drill at speeds up to 10km/h. 

As an option, the Maxima 3 drill can be fitted with the Kun V-Max furrow closing system that uses an advanced pivoting point, increased pressing capacity and simplified angle setting to achieve excellent seed-to-soil contact in all conditions.
