Duo-Liner press makes in-field UK debut

LinkedIn +

Kuhn’s new integral furrow press has been on show for the first time in the UK at a cultivation demonstration event in Shropshire.

Available currently for the 4, 5 and 6 body models of the company’s Vari-Master L in-furrow ploughs, the Duo-Liner operates totally independently of the primary cultivator to offer the possibility of a drill-ready seedbed in a single pass.

Key to the design are two independent hydraulic parallelogram systems that attach the row of dual 600mm diameter press wheels to the plough. Using Kuhn’s Steady Control automatic pressure regulation system, the Duo-Liner imparts up to 90kg of pressure at each pair of wheels to achieve optimum conditioning of the ploughed ground.

The Duo-Liner comes with Kuhn’s KTS 10 control box, enabling the lift and positioning of the Duo-Liner from the tractor cab. Turnover control is fully automated and therefore requires no additional action from the operator at the headland.
