Ultimately, the result is a successful cultivation operation within an optimal working window, for example the right tillage depth, adequate seed application rate or even regular and fine shredding of residue. The tool linked to KARL transmits the information necessary for proper work performance and KARL adjusts its parameters to carry out work adapted to different soil and vegetation. In the applications possible with KARL’s assistance, KUHN started with tillage and more precisely with the power harrow but there will be many more. Furthermore, KARL is already capable of detecting certain malfunctions and implements corrective actions independently.
With a power of 175 hp, KARL is designed to meet the demands of most farm sizes, whether medium or large. How? By the flexibility offered by working in fleet. Adding a second or even a third KARL vehicle can be carried out during the mission to increase work output tenfold. It’s very easy to do from the system’s mobile application.
The most precious resource being the soil, KARL’s limited size and weight, as well as its tracks of different sizes, limit ground pressure and thus minimize compaction. Less compaction means less runoff, improved soil life and preserved root development potential.
