Mounted reversible plough

VARI-MASTER L On Land
SMART PLOUGHING

The new ploughing vision

KUHN is adding a new model to its range with the 4 to 6-bodied VARI-MASTER L, in order to adapt to the new range of compact 200 to 300 hp tractors. The MASTER L fills the gap between the MASTER 153 and the 183. This out-of-furrow version allows all the available tractors equipped with broad tyres or tracks to be used, whilst protecting the soil from compaction. Its unique design meets the 3 fundamental requirements of farmers in terms of ploughing: efficiency, comfort of use and quality of work.

Your benefits:

  • Exclusive: automatic body-lift system assisted by GPS with Smart Ploughing. A many times awarded innovation.
  • New offset kinematics aligns the plough perfectly for fuel savings and longer-lasting wear parts.
  • Patented adjustment of the angle of attack of the skimmers for better burial of residues.
  • The new arched beam reduces wheel overhang in order to optimise worked areas.

The key equipment:

SMART PLOUGHING

Section Control in ploughing

KUHN continues to innovate by marketing the Smart Ploughing system as early as the fall 2019. This technique incorporates Control Section, a GPS-assisted automatic body lift system on a plough. This innovation has also received multiple international awards including a silver medal at the Agritechnica 2017.

The GPS-assisted automatic body lift on VARI MASTER L on-Land ploughs allows sequential entry of the bodies at the end of the plot through geolocation.

KUHN integrates the Control Section in the plough to automatically and individually lift each body through a system completely built in the plough itself. The lift is fully secured by GPS. The geolocation of the plough allows automating the points of entry and exit of the bodies in order to obtain uniform ploughing, regardless of the working conditions and the shape of the plot.

Seedbed preparator

The Prolander adapts to various activities, from shallow stubble cultivation (2nd pass) to secondary tillage, through seedbed preparation.

Your benefits:

  • Increased output in plant residues: 5 rows of tines.
  • Time savings and fast adaptation to working conditions: continuous hydraulic working depth adjustment.
  • Versatility: from seedbed preparation to shallow stubble cultivation.

Seed drill for direct seeding

AUROCK

The answer today to tomorrow's challenges...

Since the years 2000, farming practices have evolved considerably up to the development of conservation agriculture. For different historical or economic reasons, ploughing is replaced in rotation by varying degrees of shallow tillage, so conservation agriculture includes both minimum tillage and direct seeding.

With over 40 years of experience in the field, KUHN launches the 6 m wide AUROCK 6000 R and AUROCK 6000 RC seed drills, equipped with triple discs for optimum establishment of crops under cover, in min-till systems or direct seeding.

Your benefits:

  • Modular: two types of opener discs for cutting and preparing the seeding line, integrated cutter roller for sowing in all types of cover, large-diameter wheel train in staggered position to work on tilled or min-tilled soil.
  • Triple-disc seeding unit mounted on parallelogram for optimum accuracy. Central pivot for delivering seeds in the furrow regardless of the slope.
  • ISOBUS as standard. The interface is user-friendly and intuitive. Automated headland turns and metering unit perfectly synchronized with the lifting of the independent sections.

The key equipment:

VISTAFLOW

Make your life easier with universal tramlining

VISTAFLOW is an intelligent tramlining valve that monitors the passage of seeds inside the tubes. By equipping the seed drill’s distribution head with a tramlining VISTAFLOW valve on all rows, it allows achieving all tramlining rhythms as well as controlling the passage of the seeds in each row.
