Avant 02 – FTender front mounted tank seed drill combinations.
Compact, flexible, high output
The new Generation Amazone Avant 02 seed drill combinations consist of the FTender front mounted tank and the latest generation power harrows equipped with the new TwinTeC double disc coulters. The rigid Avant 02 seed rails can be mounted on the KG 01 power harrows. The working width range extends from the rigid 3m and 4m, up to the folding 4m, 5m and 6m.
New KG 02-2 Power Harrow
The folding power harrow provides the basis for a perfect seed bed. 3.3 tine carriers per metre of working width till the soil intensively as well as thoroughly incorporating any organic matter during the mulch sowing process. The levelling board is now guided by the roller, so that the tines of the levelling board do not need to be adjusted as the working depth varies. A wide range of packer rollers are available, but the wedge ring roller has proven to be the most popular roller to suit changeable Irish conditions.
Accurate seed placement with the TwinTeC seed coulters.
The TwinTeC double disc coulters are mounted by the seed rail onto the active soil tillage tool with roller. The TwinTeC coulter is offered with a row spacing of 15 cm. The maintenance-free, TwinTeC coulters run very smoothly through the soil at a coulter pressure of up to 60 kg/coulter and place the seed precisely. Proven to be the choice for high end tillage farmer for optimal strike rate. The working depth of the parallel-guided coulter can be adjusted independently of the coulter pressure. The placement depth is determined by the depth guidance rollers.
Hydraulic Coulter Pressure
The hydraulic coulter pressure adjustment allows very rapid and convenient reaction to varying soil conditions. If a pre-cultivation just with the rotary cultivator is necessary on a headland, the coulters can also be completely lifted up using the hydraulic coulter pressure adjustment. The power harrow with roller can also be uncoupled from the seed rail when needed for solo seedbed preparation. The after harrow on the coulter ensures excellent seed coverage, and with the clever design ensures an extremely long wearing life and it can be set to a one of 5 height positions and If it is not needed, it can be deactivated in the park position.
On the 3 m and 4 m Avant, the seed travels from the FTender front mounted tank via a single conveying system whereas, on the 5 m and 6 m Avant it is via a double conveying system, to the segmented distributor head, or heads. The distribution head is mounted directly above the coulters, resulting in a short and steep line of transfer between the distribution heads and the coulters. Electrical one-sided switching is also possible in the Avant.
ISOBUS machine control
The machine control of the Avant is by ISOBUS. The software has been developed internally by AMAZONE and facilitates intuitive operation of the Avant. The easily comprehensible symbols and freely programmable buttons can be used to adapt the interface of the operating terminal to the requirements of the user. Control of the seed drill combination can be performed either by the AmaTron 4 or AmaPad 2 ISOBUS terminals from AMAZONE, or by any other ISOBUS terminal from another manufacturer.
