Express TD

Driven by the soil

What are the excelling features of the Express TD?

The Express TD combines the advantages of a manoeuvrable 3-point mounted seed drill with the efficiency of a Pronto DC. The compact high speed drill with low horse power requirement guarantees a noticeable increase in productivity.


The well-proven DiscSystem of the Express TD guarantees a perfect production of fine soil at an operational speed of 10 to 20 km/h. Due to the intensive tillage it can do without a pto-shaft. Due to the high clearance the 460 mm discs are very efficient even if there are high amounts of organic material. The working depth of the DiscSystem can be adjusted hydraulically and comfortably from the tractor.

Seedbed preparation

A very even emergence is the prerequisite for an even plant growth. To achieve this aim, the seedbed has to be levelled and consolidated in an optimum way. The packer elements of the FarmFlex packer with a diameter of 54 cm are especially coordinated with the seed coulters.

DiscSystem – tyre packer

DiscSystem – perfect seedbed preparation in all conditions

  • Effective crumbling and even levelling across entire operational width
  • High clearance increases operational options and reliability
  • Better performance at increased speed
  • Hydraulic depth control, adjustable during operation (optional)

Efficient consolidation

  • Targeted and homogeneous levelling and consolidation in front of every seed coulter
  • Profiled packer for efficient consolidation below the seed horizon guides the water safely to the grain and thus guarantees optimum emergence
  • Compact design of the packer (ø 54 cm) while at the same time the load-bearing capacity on light, sandy soils is still high
  • Standard carbide scraper guarantee safe working in wet, cohesive conditions


TurboDisc – the third generation guarantees an advance in seed placement

A perfect placement of the seed and an immediate seed-soil contact are the prerequisites for a safe and regular emergence. HORSCH perfectly meets the challenge to achieve this aim even at high operational speeds. The solution is called TurboDisc. The DoubleDisc seed coulter that HORSCH has been using and developing further for more than 20 years convinces by its precise seed placement. The press-wheel-controlled coulter design allows a quick adaption to the soil at high speeds. This is the only way to keep up the placement depth for every single grain of seed.
The DoubleDisc seed coulter with maintenance-free bearing opens the soil and thus allows for an undisturbed seed placement. The integrated uniformer guarantees a fixing of the seed at the bottom
of the seed furrow even at high operational speeds. A carbide coated scraper keeps the area between the discs clean and prevents blocking even in cohesive and wet conditions. The 5- or 7.5-cm-wide press wheel guarantees optimum seed-soil contact and an exact depth control.
In addition to the excellent adaption to the soil the TurboDisc seed bar impresses by its easy handling: coulter pressure and sowing depth do not influence each other when being adjusted. The maintenance-free rubber bearing of the seed coulters transfers a coulter pressure of 120 kg and thus guarantees a smooth coulter – at an operational speed of up to 20 km/h. Moreover, the rubber bearing acts as an overload protection and shock absorber for stones.
