The Amazone GreenDrill is a seeder / cultivator combination that enables the sowing of cover crops directly into stubble and is also used for pasture re-seeding. The GreenDrill Seed Hopper fits together with the Catros Compact Disc Harrow and the KE Rotary Harrow. It is available in a 200 ℓ and 500 ℓ option.
The 500 ℓ GreenDrill seed hopper is easily accessed via the loading steps provided. Within the metering system located underneath the seed hopper, is a seed shaft that is equipped, depending on the type of seed and the application rate with either fine or normal seed wheels. The drive to the fan and the seed shaft is via an electric motor, or alternatively, hydraulically.
For the control of the seeder, two alternatives with differing levels of operational comfort are available. The GreenDrill terminal, in its basic format, just provides the switching on and off of the seed shaft and the fan plus the initial setting of the seed shaft speed. Additionally in comfort specification, the terminal offers a menu selection to support the calibration procedures, a display of the forward speed and both the area covered and the hours worked. The seed shaft speed automatically matches to the changing forward speeds if the on-board computer is connected to the 7-pin tractor signal socket.
