PRONTO DC

Universal seeding technology for all conditions

The Pronto DC is rightly called a universal seed drill. Universal from two points of view:

 

  • Perfect sowing regardless of the preparatory work: mulch seed, after plough or intensely mixed passes.
  • Ideal for sowing the most different crops. In addition to the classical crops, like rape / wheat / barley, it is also possible to sow grass / catch crops and so on.

Strengths

Of the Pronto DC

The placement and the embedding of the seed is a crucial factor when sowing. Another essential success factor, however, is that the optimum time window for sowing can be maintained. The high operational speed of up to 20 km/h and the large seed hoppers of the Pronto DC guarantee a long range.

 

  • Pronto 3, 4 rigid and 4 DC: 2 800 liter single hopper
  • Pronto 6 DC: 3 500 liter single hopper
  • Pronto 7 to 9 DC: 4 000 liter single hopper

If fertiliser is used, the capacity increases to 3 800 resp. 5 000 liter.

Even germination is the basis for high yields

PowerDisc seed coulter – exact seed placement even in heavy soils

Tyre packer with optimised tractor profile
Effective consolidation in front of each seed coulter

DiscSystem – efficient seedbed preparation in all conditions

PPF fertiliser coulter – precise placement of fertiliser

ALWAYS A TRUMP CARD IN YOUR HAND

  • 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
  • Fertilisation to the point: PPF or G & F fertilisation systems

FEATURES

The Pronto principle

CULTVATION, CONSOLIDATION, SEEDING

Which requirements does the seed drill have to meet?

 

  • Precise seed placement – as even germination increases yield potential.
  • High seeding speed – as perfect timing is essential.
  • Tolerance for seedbed conditions – as flexibility saves money.

How does the Pronto achieve such even germination?

  • The DiscSystem loosens, levels and produces fine soil.
  • The packing system ensures deep consolidation and equal seeding conditions for all coulters. Several narrow, large-diameter tyres mounted on a rigid axle ensure a high level of even soil surface.
  • The mounting of the TurboDisc coulters allows for vertical adjustment movement of up to 15 cm and ensures precise contour following. All seeds are placed exactly at the specified depth.
  • 4 rubber elements/coulters release a pressure of up to 120 kg, sufficient to reliably keep them in the ground at high speed.
  • The rubber wheel at the coulter-end ensures precise seed depth and proper seed-to-soil contact.

Faster

  • Extremely low power demand – due to low dead weight and power-saving, but very efficient tools
  • High output – due to working speeds of 10 – 20 km/h
  • Short turning times – due to compact design
  • Low idle times – due to large seed and fertiliser hoppers

Simpler

  • Short set-up times – due to uncomplicated connection to the tractor
  • Quickly ready for action – due to easy adjustment of seed quantity, seed depth and coulter pressure
  • Unproblematic changing of the seed
  • Low maintenance requirements

Safer

  • TurboDisc seed coulter – precise seed placement at high working speeds
  • TurboDisc coulters are individually controlled by press wheels and are equipped with integrated shock absorbers
  • Exact adaption to uneven soils up to a difference of 15 cm
  • Stepless coulter pressure adjustment 5 – 120 kg per TurboDisc coulter

DiscSystem – perfect seed bedpreparation 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

Tyre packing system with AS thread – robust, effective and easy to pull

  • Effective, even levelling and consolidation in front of each coulter. A straight tyre thread increases consolidation at the tyre edges.
  • Effective consolidation below the seeds for better capillarity towards the seeds
  • Large diameter of tyres (780 mm) and the not-required scrapers reduce the draft requirement

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.
