New TurboDisc 3 coulter on Pronto DC drill

HORSCH has announced a number of updates for its highly regarded Pronto DC disc drill including a new TurboDisc 3 coulter, new PowerDisc parallelogram coulter and the addition of RowControl.

TurboDisc 3 coulter

The new TurboDisc 3 double disc coulter builds on the proven capabilities of the previous generations to achieve a perfect seed placement for an even broader range of requirements and soils. During the development stage the main focus was on precision and stability. An almost invisible component, the inside scraper, was carefully optimised to increase operational reliability in extreme conditions.

PowerDisc coulter 

The new PowerDisc parallelogram coulter is ideal for difficult conditions and provides precise seed placement even on coarse seedbeds. The double disc coulter is equipped with very large bearings designed to be extremely stable and durable. Experience from the Maestro single grain seed drills has been built on and similar to the Pronto’s well-proven TurboDisc coulter, two seed coulters run behind one tyre of the packer.


The SectionControl distributor tower RowControl with single row shut-off is now available for the Pronto DC, making overlaps and seeding windows a thing of the past. This saves seed, fertiliser and micro-granular compound. Tramlines can be created in any row and the track-spacing and track width can be produced in every combination.

Due to its sophisticated seed and air management, the RowControl distribution tower can shut off individual rows without affecting the cross distribution of the machine. In practice, it makes sense to combine individual rows to small groups.


I-Manager from HORSCH introduces a new ISOBUS operational framework for software and hardware. The objective of the new I-Manager hardware and software is to create a platform which can handle the metering of an almost unlimited number of sections and components.

Following the success with the Leeb LT, this intuitive handling concept has now been optimised and extended for the seed drill sector. The system has many new functions that facilitate the adjustment, handling and monitoring of the machines. The farmer can configure the display on the terminal interface according to his requirements. The objective is to include a fully diagnoseable system in all sectors of seeding technology.
