PROFESSIONAL TECHNOLOGY FOR 3-POINT LINKAGE

What are the excelling features of the Maestro RV / RX?

The coulter attachment of the Maestro RV / RX can be equipped with 6, 8 and 9 rows with a row spacing of 70 / 75 and 80 cm. When it is used with 12 rows, 45 and 50 cm row spacings are available. The newly developed clamping profile allows for changing from 12 to 8 rows quite easily. An 11-row coulter attachment with a row spacing of 50 / 55 or 60 cm is also possible.
The row body of the Maestro RV / RX consists of a wide, stable parallelogram and as a standard is equipped with a hydraulic cylinder to generate coulter pressure. Coulter pressures up to 220 kg per row can be generated manually at the terminal or fully automatically with the innovative coulter pressure regulation system AutoForce. If weight is transferred to the machine by for example double-acting lower links or if it is used with a seed wagon, coulter pressures of up to 350 kg per row can be realised.

Optimum weight distribution with the Partner FT

For an optimum weight distribution, the Maestro RV / RX is combined with the HORSCH Partner FT in the front. Two versions are available:
Partner 1600 FT The compact single hopper version Partner 1600 FT guarantees maximum efficiency and a long range for one component. In combination with the Maestro RV / RX, the pressurised hopper can be used to apply fertiliser. Especially in case of a high throughput capacity the concept of the pressurised hopper allows for a high operational speed. The basic equipment version of the Partner 1600 FT weighs 700 kg and, as an option, can be equipped with an additonal weight of 360 kg.
Partner 2000 FT The Partner 2000 FT is a double hopper with a capacity of 2 200 liter. Two configurations are available:
1. Double hopper with a partition of 60 : 40 (1 320 : 880 liter) to apply two different fertilisers or to use the total capacity with one fertiliser.
2. Double hopper with a partition of 75 : 25 (1 650 : 550 liter). In this version, the Partner FT is equipped with two different metering devices – the larger hopper capacity for fertiliser with a HORSCH standard metering device, the lower capacity with a micro-granular metering device for for example starter fertiliser, insecticides etc.
Both Partner FT can be equipped with an intermediate packer to guarantee a maximum soil protection in the field.

The double fall sluice at the metering device of the Partner 1600 FT or at both metering devices of the Partner 2000 FT allows for a half-width shut-off. A manual as well as an electric control of the half-widths is available. To efficiently reduce overlapping, it can be connected with SectionControl via a GPS signal.

  • 6-, 8-, 9-, 11- and 12-row coulter attachment
  • Row spacings between 45 and 80 cm
  • Clamping profile to connect the row bodies
  • Coulter pressures of 150 kg to 220 kg per row (in case of a weight transfer up to 350 kg)
  • Coulter pressure can be adjusted comfortably at the terminal
  • Or controlled automatically with HORSCH AutoForce
  • Underground fertilisation with SingleDisc fertiliser coulter
  • Optional: micro-granular unit for placement in the furrow or on the row
