The electric half-side shut-off for the Avant 6002-2 can be carried out remotely from the tractor cab or, mechanically, directly on the FTender mounted front hopper. The feed into one of the two segmented distributor heads can be prevented via a flap directly below the metering unit, so that half-side shut-off can be implemented.
The electric half-side shut-off helps to reduce excess sowing on the headland or at the edge of the field and can also save seed. Half-side shut-off enables the machine to be comfortably switched off via the terminal in wedge shaped fields or steeply angled headlands. Additionally, via GPS, the automated switching of half the working width is possible.
