- Horsch has announced a wide range of updates and new models to its cultivator, drill and sprayer ranges, which will be shown to the public at Agritechnica show 2023
“We are always innovating and developing our product range based on feedback from our customers, and from what the Horsch family learn farming our own land in Europe,” explains Stephen Burcham, General Manager for HORSCH UK.
The new Horsch Maestro TX is a compact, single grain seed drill with 3-point linkage. It is equipped with a hydraulic telescopic slide frame on which the seeding units are mounted, allowing them to be expanded and contracted as required with working widths from 2.6m to 4.8m. It offers precise placement of the grain and an optimum embedding at operational speeds of up to 15kph.
On the Horsch 6 TX, common row spacings between 45 cm and 80 cm can be set and adjusted in 5cm steps. The Maestro 7 TX can also sow with a row spacing of 37.5cm or 40cm. If the middle row is deactivated, the operator can sow conventionally with 6 rows and a row spacing of 75cm or 80cm. The optional hydraulic weight transfer system guarantees higher coulter pressure while sowing.
As an option, the new Maestro TX line can be equipped with a 1300 litre fertiliser hopper and, as standard, is equipped with a fertiliser half-width shut-off. The fertiliser is applied with the HORSCH metering devices at the single disc fertiliser coulter for underground fertilisation.
