Impressive diversity

Sprinter SC

HORSCH Maschinen GmbH Products Seeding Tine seed drills | Sprinter SC

Versatile, efficient, simple – these are the excelling features of the HORSCH Sprinter SC.

Tine sowing technology not only for direct seeding

  • The Sprinter 12.25 SC excels due to its efficiency and its simpleness
  • Flexibility due to the three different coulter options
  • Perfect clearing effect of the tine coulter
  • Sowing catch crops directly into the stubbles or after tillage
  • Perfect contour following due to individual depth controlled and pretensioned tines

The Sprinter 12.25 SC stands for 12 m working width and a row spacing of 25 cm. The double hopper has a capacity of 6 300 l and thus is enormously efficient.

The three coulter options can be used in all situations to flexibly respond to the prevailing conditions. With the Ultra ThinEdge tine coulter nothing stands in the way of a Low Disturbance method. A seed band of 7 cm can be created with the WideEdge tine coulter.

  • Direct seeding excellent after the harvest
  • Mulch seed
  • Application of two products is possible

ThinEdge seed coulter

  • Narrow tine seed coulter
  • Width: 21 mm
  • Ideal for sowing catch crops directly into stubble
  • Moves only little soil

With a width of 21 mm, the ThinEdge tine seed coulter is a very narrow coulter. It is ideal for sowing catch crops directly into stubble. Due to the narrow shape only little soil is moved and thus the water is kept in the soil. The little movement of the soil does not stimulate the germination of weeds. In addition, the tine point can be mounted on the WideEdge coulter.

WideEdge seed coulter

  • Wide point seed coulter
  • Width: 110 mm
  • Creates an approx. 7 cm wide seed band
  • Perfect distribution in the seeding area

The WideEdge tine seed coulter is the widest tine seed coulter in the Sprinter SL and SC line. It creates a seed band with a width of up to 7 cm. This ensures a wide distribution per seed row. The point is used to remove organic residues and thus guarantees a clean seed furrow without residues. In addition, the point can be mounted on the ThinEdge coulter.

Ultra ThinEdge seed coulter

  • Very narrow tine seed coulter
  • Width: 12 mm
  • Ideal for sowing catch crops directly into stubble
  • Generates only minimum soil movement

The Ultra ThinEdge tine seed coulter is the narrowest tine seed coulter in the Sprinter SL and SC line. The point is only 12 mm wide and only opens a very thin seed furrow. Thus, almost no soil is moved which makes it ideal for sowing catch crops directly into stubble.
The little movement of soil does not stimulate weeds to germinate and in addition, the soil is not moved unnecessarily to keep evaporation in the soil as low as possible.

Press wheel / (firming wheel)

Always the perfect depth due to the press wheel

  • Press wheel round
  • Press wheel wedge-shaped

Two press wheel options are available.

The round press wheel can be used in all situations – in very dry as well as in very hard, stony soils.

The wedge-shaped press wheel is ideal for very dry and light soils. The pointed profile consolidates the seed furrow deeply.

Additional Features

Fertiliser and seed flow control

Flow control at the distribution tower

  • For a complete monitoring of the seed and fertiliser hoses
  • Warning if a pneumatic hose is blocked
  • Sowing errors are avoided
  • Monitoring of the pneumatic flow at the distribution tower

The fertiliser and seed flow control is a reasonable electronic solution to prevent sowing errors. The sensors control the flow directly behind the distribution tower and detect blockages. Thus, the individual pneumatic hoses are monitored and within seconds you get a notification in the terminal – both acoustic and visual.

Half-width shut-off

  • Standard with mechanical half-width shut-off
  • Optional: electric half-width shut-off via ISOBUS Terminal

The mechanical half-width shut-off is standard equipment for all machines. As an option you can choose an electrical half-width shut-off via the ISOBUS Terminal.
