Following the success of the Aerosem VT trailed pneumatic seed drills with a working width of 5 meters, Pöttinger extends this combination with a working width of 6 meters. In conjunction with active tillage, this machine also combines output with flexibility. Precise seed placement and maximum soil conservation are also the hallmarks of the Aerosem VT 6000 DD.
To avoid a bulldozing effect, the high-volume packer tyres with a diameter of 800 mm reduce ground pressure and rolling resistance. Optimum consolidation of the seed rows is made possible by the large area of surface contact in combination with the special grooved tyre profile. The additional damping of the packer ensures smoother running during operation. Because this machine runs smoothly, it enables high driving speeds to be maintained on different types of soil.
Seed placement and cost effectiveness
Each feature on Aerosem VT pneumatic seed drills is designed to increase productivity and profitability.
• To be used flexibly on different types of soil in varying conditions
• Best possible seedbed preparation with medium and heavy power harrows
• Perfect consolidation with large grooved tyre packer
• Optimum seed placement thanks to the proven Dual Disc coulters
• Ground tracking of power harrow, packer and coulter rail
Longitudinal partition seed hopper
The longitudinally mounted pressurized hopper is now available with a capacity of up to 4,600 liters on the Aerosem VT 6000 DD. The 5-meter-wide version holds 2,800 liters. The hopper is divided 50:50 along the direction of travel. This configuration enables seed with fertilizer, or seed on its own, to be applied conveniently. In addition to good accessibility to the metering units, shut-off plates make it easier to change the metering wheels when the hopper is full.
Flexible operation with single shoot
The proven Aerosem pressurized hopper system is designed for high application rates. This system ensures exact seed flow rates regardless of the type of seed or the working conditions. Each side of the hopper features a separate metering unit – but feeds the same single shoot seed line. The metering units can be controlled independently of each other. Two components can be applied simultaneously. Moreover, two application maps can be used for site-specific drilling.
Proven Dual Disc coulters
The Dual Disc double disc coulter system ensures precise seed placement. The large coulters are slightly offset and form a clean and tidy seed slot. The equal-length coulter arms are mounted on sealed bearings with a coulter offset of 30 cm to ensure maximum reliability even with high volumes of plant residues. The coulters cut right through, even at high driving speeds thanks to a coulter pressure of up to 60 kg. The V-shaped seed slot prevents the seed from rolling.
