Metering system


The metering of the D9 "Combi" has been further optimised with regard to throughput characteristics and longitudinal division. This is achieved by a combination of the 80 mm diameter Control seed wheels working in conjunction with the newly designed bottom flap and metering housing.

The large diameter of the toothed seed wheels means that the seed is singled in the metering system for a longer period. An even drive to the seed wheel is ensured by the stepless Vario-gearbox.

The seed wheels in the AMAZONE metering system are filled mainly from above, in much the same way as in the cell wheel. Discrepancies between the calibration test and seed rate as a result of uneven seed wheel filling are longer possible here.
