CORONA X-FORCE combined seed drill is a highly versatile, designed to reduce operating costs, which can perform operations from conventional seeding following tillage to direct seed drilling through stubble.
Is the combination of a powerful disc harrow and a wheel packer, with the new X-FORCE seeding bar.
The aggressive front harrow with two ranks of toothed discs ensures optimal soil refinement, whilst burying any crop residue. Ideal for medium to large areas, this model offers significant agronomic benefits, providing excellent seedbed preparation, whilst the disc harrow also performs preliminary weeding of the ground.
The new seeding bar, built with connecting rods over two well-spaced ranks, has been implemented with 3D suspensions on silent-blocks. The drill unit is equipped with double discs (380 mm diameter) and a rear wheel to control seed depth and compression. These features guarantee extreme precision for the uniform deposit of seeds on any soil type at any speed.
With high working capacity and seeding quality, this model represents the best compromise for large and medium-sized farms.
The 3500 liter hopper enables to plant large tracts in complete autonomy, with no need for stops to refill. The Gaspardo pneumatic distribution system can be adapted to all requirements, ensuring maximum precision and reliability even under difficult conditions.
The electric doser drive, managed by the ISOBUS control unit, allows extreme precision in seeding. According to the tractor on which the Corona is mounted, the seed drill can be operated off the tractor instrument panel or through a control monitor for managing all the machine’s operations.
