Kosma row unit. Precision seed drill

1. KOSMA row unit

August 2019

KOSMA row unit
Precision seed drill

2. KOSMA row unit

Light, Precise, Efficient, Versatile

3.

Need of less power and less lifting capacity
Only 93kg per row unit:
25kg lighter than a Maxima3 row unit
Smaller tractors can be used for planting
operation
Less lifting capacity needed:
Gravity center closer to the tractor
Almost 30% less weight-effort with a 6
row machine

4.

Light weight… but tough
Design of the unit according to precise
calculation
Using high capacity material and clever
design allows to reduce sections and
meanwhile keep stability
Strong cast iron paralellogram :
Good dimensional stability
Long life articulations

5. Stable during planting operation

Performing downforce system:
Add +12,5 or 25kg extra downforce
Total 130kg downforce with the two
springs (depends on amount of seeds and options)
Allows a good adaptation to conditions
F
Easy to set:
Without tool, only one or two springs to
move
Robust, no wearing part

6. Kuhn metering unit: Top of precision and versatility

Well known metering unit:
Has proven its accuracy on Maxima row unit
Identical 50l hopper
Easy to handle, versatile:
Change crop easily by changing discs
Easy to set, whitout tool

7. Metering unit animation

Mechanical drive:
One unique chain
Very narrow transmission – very well
adapted to naorrw row spacing (45cm)
Simple and robust with guides on both
sides of the chain
Electric drive:
48V system from Maxima3 e-drive
Allows precision ag:
Section control
VRA

8. Opening the furrow

Two large discs:
Allows a steady opening
Long lasting, high quality steel
10°
One coutler to finish the tranch:
Makes a real V-shape tranch
Ensures the right depth
!! Wearing part, need to be checked at
least once a year

9. Managing planting depth

One handle:
Easy set-up in 0,5cm steps
From 1 to 9cm depth
Easy to reproduce row by row
Controlling the depth:
Independent gauge wheels
Integrated scrapers to clean wheels and
discs

10. Cleaning the furrow

Clod cleaners:
To remove clods or small stones from the
planting line
Easy set-up without tool
Very precise set-up every cm
Common base for both option
Pin + handle to set-up depth
Trash wipers:
To remove resides or trash from
previous crop
Can also remove clods
Easy set-up whitout tool
Very precise set-up every cm

11. Intermediate press wheel

Helps improving soil to seed contact:
Improves emergence homogeneity
Improves the germination rate
One option that pays off:
Stainless steel, low stickiness
Large diameter for a smooth ride
Easy to remove in wet conditions
New scrapers to push further the limits
Easy out of work position:
Lock integrated onto the wheel support
Easy accessible handle
Quick remove possible in wet conditions

12. Closing the furrow

Helps improving soil to seed contact:
Improves emergence homogeneity
Improves the germination rate
Manages the compaction near the seed
Very stable at work:
Patented design
Long arms for a smoother run (Articulation in front of gauge
wheel arms)
Less boucing effect for more constant downforce
Choice between steel and rubber wheels
No greasing point – easy maintenance
Possibility to offset the wheels in stony conditions
No angle setting

13. Closing the furrow

Optimal closing in curves and slopes:
Short distance between seed deposit and furrow closing
The shorter the distance, the better in slopes and curves
Independent distance to equipment (with/without press
wheel = same distance)
Compared to Maxima 3:
Same distance than a V-max option on Maxima3 (455mm)
Shorter distance with a press wheel (455mm vs 485mm)
455mm

14. Out of work position

A lock mounted in serie:
The row unit can be locked in out of work position
Useful for seed producers or on machines with
uneven number of rows
Possible setting of lower position:
To align the rows on the machine
100mm

15. Fertilizer coulter

NS disc coulter
In serie, light non-stop fertilizer coulter:
This coulter has proven its capacity since years on
Maxima2 and Planter3
Dedicated to well prepared soil and conventional
seeding speed
Latest bearing hub is quite strong
Lighter than NS offset
In option, Offset non-stop coulters:
Offset of the discs for higher penetration capacity
Inner bearings
To be chosen in case of shallow soil preparation
Not available with TF collection (too light frames)
Offset NS disc coulter

16. ARGUMENTS

Same metering unit
as Maxima3
Very light unit – 93kg
Downforce up to
130kg
50l hopper with
secured closing – 2
maize doses
Front options easy
to set
Strong cast-iron
paralellogram
Easy to set-up
without tools
Best of class, non
sticky, press wheel
Dedicated furrow
closing sytem
