HORSCH front and rear hopper system
Controlled incorporation of fertiliser while cultivating
Advantages of Partner HT
With the rear and front hoppers Partner HT HORSCH offers a system that allows for placing fertiliser in a controlled way while cultivation. The system completes the StripTill system known from the Focus TD to be able to offer an optimum solution for all situations. It also marks a simple entry into the sector of targeted fertilisation. Moreover, targeted fertilisation increases efficiency and compared to conventionalfertilisation saves costs.
Distinguishing Features of Partner HT
Especially with regard to phosphate the system helps to improve fertiliser efficiency. The exactly placed fertiliser is immediately available to the plant and remains available for a long time. Depending on the chosen setting at the distributor of the cultivator coulter fertiliser can be placed shallowly, deeply or 50:50. Thus, it is possible to fertilise the lower topsoil area additionally. The HORSCH rear hopper Partner HT in combination with the cultivators Terrano FM/MT and the trailed version of the Terrano FX is equipped with 2 chambers with a capacity of 2,800 litres and a 70/30 partition (pressurised hopper).
Advantages of Partner FT
The front hopper has a capacity of 1 600 litres and allows for applying one component, together with the HORSCH Maestro RC solo for example for underground fertilisation in maize. The Partner FT can be used for deep fertilisation, for example mounted on the HORSCH Terrano FX.
The compact design of the FT allows for a good visibility towards the front. At the same time the feed opening is rather large for a quick filling with a front loader or a telescopic handler.
Distinguishing Features of Partner FT
Additional weights are available as an option to increase the Partner FT (dead weight 700 kg) with an additional weight of 360 kg. Thus, the tractor is balanced in an optimum way even if the front hopper is empty. For an optimum conservation of the soil and consolidation the front hopper can be equipped with an intermediate packer – a RollPack packer with 280 kg or a tyre packer with 230 kg.
