HORSCH Maschinen GmbH Products Seeding | Avatar SL

Professional seed drill with 3-point linkage

  • Compact design
  • Ideal for the most different conditions of use
  • Exact placement depth due to depth control wheel
  • Coulter pressure up to 240 kg
  • Optional selective hosing
  • Sowing into standing catch crop is possible
  • Optimum for stony, heavy, clayey soils
  • Maintenance-free bearings
  • Seed skid with carbide wear edge

The HORSCH Avatar SL is the most compact Avatar HORSCH currently offers. Due to the option to equip this Avatar in combination with the Partner FT front hopper as well as with a 800 l seed hopper in the rear, you can either use this machine as an extension for the front hopper Partner FT or as an independent machine. Due to the integrated power transfer system, additional weight can be transferred from the tractor to the machine. This allows for sowing perfectly even in harder conditions.

  • Mulch seed
  • Conventional tillage
  • In stony and very heavy, clayey soils
  • 25 cm, 30 cm row spacing for mechanical population management

Precise seed placement due to individual depth control

  • Individual depth control by means of depth control wheel
  • Single disc coulter with seed skid
  • All-purpose
  • Outstanding for stony, very heavy and clayey soils
  • Coulter pressure up to 240 kg
  • Maintenance free

The individually depth controlled SingleDisc coulter has specially been designed for the Avatar line. Due to its individuality and flexibility, it can be adapted to different sowing conditions:

  • Mulch seed
  • Conventional tillage
  • In standing catch crops
  • On stony and very heavy clayey soils

The interaction of single disc coulter and seed skid ensues a safe opening of the furrow. At the same time, harvest residues are removed from the furrow. The result is an optimum contact of seed and soil for quick and safe emergence.
Via the rubber buffer and the optional hydraulic weight transfer system, a coulter pressure of up to 240 kg can be transferred. The coulter pressure can easily be adjusted. All pivot points and connections at the coulter are maintenance-free.
The durable, maintenance-free bearings on all rotating parts guarantee a long service life and operational reliability. The seed skid is equipped with a carbide wear edge for a long service life. It can even be further protected with the HM+ version. The stable depth control wheels guarantee a precise depth control of the coulter in changing or difficult soils. This is due to different, co-ordinated adjustments of the seed coulter and optional equipments. Due to the lateral angel of 6° and a vertical angle of 3°of the single disc coulter, the seed is placed diagonally below the surface. Depending on the conditions, you can choose between a Uniformer and a catching roller.

Additional Features

Catching roller

Safe placement of the seed Ideal in dry soils Remove the catching roller in wet conditions Due to the parking position, the catching roller can be lifted
Due to the catching roller, the seed is placed perfectly in the seed furrow to create a connection to capillarity. When sowing in very wet conditions, the catching roller can be set to the parking position with one simple step. Thus, it is possible to continue sowing in wet conditions. If working in wet conditions for a longer time, it makes sense to replace the catching roller with the uniformer.

Closing wheel steel

For sowing in wet conditions Closes the seed furrow even in changing conditions Ideal with the offset method The down force of the closing wheels can be adjusted by means of a spring without any tools Depending on the conditions, the angle can be changed
The steel closing wheel is ideal for wet and changing conditions. Even with a lot of organic material, the closing wheel works reliably – a real all-rounder among the closing wheels. In special conditions, the angle of the closing wheel can be adjusted to achieve a perfect result.


Star roller steel

For sowing in dry soils The star roller produces crumbly fine soil The down force of the closing wheels can be adjusted by means of a spring without any tools Depending on the conditions, the angle can be changed
The steel star roller is ideal for dry soils. The star profile produces fine soil. It covers the seed and closes the seed furrow. For special conditions, the angle of the star roller can be adjusted to achieve a perfect result.


Safe placement of the seed in the furrow Can be used in all situations Ideal when sowing into green catch crops Ideal in wet conditions
Due to the Uniformer, the seed is pressed in to the seed furrow. This principle is already known from the TurboDisc seed coulters of the Pronto. The Uniformer is also ideal for green catch crops.
