Avant 02 – seed drill combination with front tank Compact, flexible, high output

AMAZONE is exhibiting the new 02 Generation of the Avant seed drill combination at Agritechnica 2019. The machine consists of the new FTender front tank, the new generation of active soil tillage equipment and the new TwinTeC seed coulters. The seed rail, with the parallelogram-suspended TwinTeC double disc coulters, will be available in working widths of 3 m and 4 m rigid and in 6 m folding.

The soil tillage – new KG 6002-2 rotary cultivator
The Avant 02 seed drill combinations include rotary cultivators from the latest generation in all working widths.

The new 6002-2 folding rotary cultivator generates the ideal conditions for a perfect seedbed. The 20 rotors, with on-grip tines, intensively crumble the soil and also mix in the organic matter for those growers using mulch seeding techniques. The on-grip tines pull themselves down into the soil, even under the most difficult of conditions, so that the rotary cultivator can maintain its working depth, even in extremely hard soils. The spring-loaded side plates retain the soil in the machine. The side plates can be height-adjusted by using the standard universal tool. They can move to one side to avoid stones and other larger obstacles.

The height settingof the levelling board can be used to guide the soil flow and the intensity of the soil tillage. The seedbed is also levelled by the levelling board. The levelling board can be adjusted in height from each side using the universal operating tool. The levelling board is now guided by the roller, so that the tines of the levelling board do not need to be adjusted as the working depth varies. 

The wide range of following rollers includes, for example, the wedge ring roller, the wedge ring roller with matrix tyre profile, the tooth packer roller and the trapeze ring roller and so can provide the optimum reconsolidation on different soils.

Should the farmer want to drive using track markers, the seed rail can be equipped with twin markers. These track markers are then mounted on the soil tillage tool. This keeps the weight closer to the tractor and the intensity of mark is improved in field corners. The angle of attack of the marker discs can also be adjusted using the universal operating tool.

Accurate seed placement with the TwinTeC seed coulters
The TwinTeC double disc coulters are mounted by the seed rail onto the active soil tillage tool with roller. The TwinTeC coulter is offered with a row spacing of 15 cm. The maintenance-free, TwinTeC coulters run very smoothly through the soil at a coulter pressure of up to 60 kg/coulter and place the seed precisely. The working depth of the parallel-guided coulter can be adjusted independently of the coulter pressure. The placement depth is determined by the depth guidance rollers. The depth across all coulters is adjusted centrally from 0 to 6 cm. The adjustment of the placement depth is carried out once again using the universal operating tool. Depth setting is carried out centrally for the rigid Avant sowing combinations, and it is set separately on each wing for the folding execution. The exact setting can be read off on a scale.

Standard hydraulic coulter pressure adjustment makes it possible to respond quickly and conveniently to changing soil conditions. The coulter pressure can be set from the tractor cab by a central, hydraulic system. The coulter pressure setting is displayed to the driver on the ISOBUS terminal.

A harrow on the coulter ensures reliable seed coverage. The angle of attack of this spring-loaded tine harrow can be adjusted. It can be set aggressively for heavy soils and in trailing mode for areas where there are straw residues. The dragging up of straw residues is therefore avoided. If the harrow wears, it can be set to another one of 5 height positions. If it is not needed, it can be deactivated in the park position.

If a pre-cultivation just with the rotary cultivator is necessary on the headland, the coulters can also be completely lifted up using the hydraulic coulter pressure adjustment. This also makes perfect use of the rotary cultivator in the corners. The rotary cultivator with roller can also be uncoupled from the TwinTeC seed rail when needed for solo seedbed preparation.

Conveying system
For the 3 m and 4 m Avant, the seed moves from the FTender front tank via a single transfer pipe to the segmented distribution head or heads. In the 6 m Avant, the same transport involves double transfer pipes. The distribution head is mounted directly above the coulters, resulting in a short and steep line of transfer between the distribution heads and the coulters. Electrical one-sided switching is also possible in the Avant.

ISOBUS machine controlThe machine control of the Avant is by ISOBUS. The software has been developed internally by AMAZONE and facilitates facilitates intuitive operation of the Avant. The easily-comprehensible symbols and freely-programmable buttons can be used to adapt the interface of the operating terminal to the requirements of the user. Control of the seed drill combination can be performed either by the AmaTron 4 or AmaPad 2 ISOBUS terminals from AMAZONE, or by any other ISOBUS terminal from another manufacturer.

Additional transport chassis
AMAZONE offers an additional transport chassis for road transport of the Avant 6002-2. The load is taken off the tractor when driving on the road and the travel comfort in transport becomes more pleasant for the driver. The chassis makes it possible to drive the Avant legally on the road with most tractors and without exceeding the rear axle load limit. Coupling and uncoupling is a one-man operation. Safe locking facilitates operation from the left-hand side of the machine.

The 250,000th Amazone drill sold

The origin of the seed drill’s history stretches back to 1947, when Dipl. Eng. Heinrich Dreyer worked together with Mr Kademann to develop the first D1 seed drill that had a working width of 2 m and which was equipped with the innovative Elite seed wheel for and easy switch between fine and normal seeds. This seed drill revolutionised the drilling of catch crops because, unlike other seed drills of that time, the D1 didn’t need the seed wheels to be constantly changed.

Amazone RoTeC coulters – in use more than 1.5 million over

An Amazone innovation enjoys a very special anniversary with 1.5 million RoTeC single disc coulters now in use. And, at the standard row spacings of between 12.5 cm and 16.6 cm, this would correspond to a total working width of over 200 kilometres! The RoTeC coulter shows its strengths particularly under difficult mulch sowing conditions – when, for example, dealing with large quantities of crop residues and on damp, heavy and sticky soils.

Irrespective of the amount of fertiliser being spread on a farm, it is an expensive commodity that needs to be accurately applied. The ZA-M range of spreaders has been at the forefront of fertiliser spreading on British farms for decades and the simple mix of gentle fertiliser handling with the SBS – Soft ballistic System – and the high quality components made from stainless steel and plastic make it both easy on the fertiliser and easy on the pocket.
