Pronto SW

Universal seed drill for highest hectare output

  • Safe emergence due to perfect embedding of the seed
  • Maximum utilisation of the ideal sowing time due to top hectare output and operational speeds of up to 20 km/h
  • Simpler, safer, faster – this motto is true for the whole adjustment process
  • Versatile and flexible use: different hopper systems for up to three individual components
  • Seed wagon for highest hectare output
  • Fertilisation to the point: PPF or G & F fertilisation systems

Machine concept

The Pronto SW concept promises maximum efficiency after the plough and for mulch seeding for large farms. Combining the large HORSCH seed wagon (12 000 l for 8 and 9 SW, 17 000 l for 12 SW) with the seed unit of the Pronto results in considerable advantages with regard to stability, accessibility and flexibility. This facilitates the calibration process, the adjustment of the machine as well as the already little maintenance work. Due to the TurboDisc seed coulter an operational speed between 10 and 20 km/h is possible.

Seed unit

Chassis and frame of the seed unit form a fixed unit. It is comparable to the principle of the Pronto 7 to 9 DC without seed hopper. The DiscSystem and the TurboDisc seed are lifted via hydraulic cylinders. The rigid draw of the seeding unit is carried by the seed wagon and follows the seed wagon like a one-axle trailer. Despite the large working width it folds to a transport width of 3 m.

Seed wagon

Due to the concept of the seed wagon the filling level of the seed hopper does not influence the working depth of the seed unit. The HORSCH seed wagon concept provides large hopper capacities for working widths starting at 8 m. Even without a filling auger the feed openings of the seed wagon are easily accessible as the wings of the Pronto seed unit do not affect the filling process.
The double hopper system allows for transporting fertiliser along and incorporating it directly into the soil by means of the PPF system (NOT for Pronto 12 SW with 3 m transport width). A double venturi below the metering device allows for a mechanical, or optionally an electronical half-width shut-off. Thus, overlaps can be avoided and seed and fertiliser can be saved. A filling auger is available as an option.

Range and flexibility

Machine features

  • Corrosion-resistant plastic hopper
  • Pressurised hopper for high application rates per hectare
  • Large tyres for maximum soil protection
  • Full integraton of hydraulic and ISOBUS functions

The seed wagon SW is available for the Pronto SW in 2 versions with a total capacity of 12 000 / 17 000 liter.
SW 12000 / SW 17000 The double hopper of the SW 12000 / SW 17000 is separated into two chambers with a capacity of 6 000 liter / 8 500 liter. The two chambers allow for applying seed or seed and fertiliser.
SW 12003 / SW 17003 The seed wagon 12003 is separated into three chambers and has a total capacity of 12 000 liter. The individual chambers have a capacity of 4 000 liter / 2 000 liter / 6 000 liter and can be used for all solid components (fertiliser or seed). In practice, two different fertilisers are often used with one seed. The hopper partition of the seed wagon 17003 is 6 500 liter / 4 000 liter / 6 500 liter.
