True love never dies: EV from 1980
This saying also fully applies to an historic seed drill from AMAZONE, namely an EV 900, an "Exact distributor" from 1980. It was used by the Klarmann family in Bissingen until 2020.
The machine is a large-area seed drill with a working width of 6 m and was designed by Prof. h.c. Univ. Samara R A S Dr. Dr. h.c. Heinz Dreyer (1932 - 2023) himself. It is still in excellent condition and was used on the Thurn und Taxis estate for about 10 years, before it was acquired by the Klarmann family in 1990. The EV then sowed 70 ha of grain every year for another 30 years to the complete satisfaction of the owners. It was last used by the grandson Christian Klarmann, before he changed to a newer AMAZONE seed drill combination.
