TurboDisc

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 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.
