BEDNAR Presents New Products for 2017
OMEGA OO_L, STRIEGEL-PRO PN and FERTI-BOX FB 1500TN
OMEGA OO_L – A LIGHTER VERSION OF THE SEED DRILL
The new OMEGA OO_L seed drills were designed to meet the requirements of farmers for a low weight machine, a robust frame and a precise seed placement. BEDNAR is bringing two width versions of the machine to the market – 3 and 6 metres. The weight of the machine was reduced by using new hoppers made from polyethylene. The seed drills with a working width of 3 metres are equipped with hoppers with a capacity of 2800L and the 6-metre-wide machines with hoppers with the capacity of 3500L.
The precise track guiding of the seed drill after the tractors is ensured by an X-shaped disc section. “Thanks to this design, the machines no longer drift and it is possible to do one pass after another, which is very important especially for seed drills,” comments Jan Bednář, the Sales and Marketing Manager of BEDNAR.
When compared with the previous version, OMEGA series OO _L is equipped with discs with a diameter of 460mm. The smaller discs achieve higher circumferential speeds that have a positive effect on the quality of the seedbed preparation. The OMEGA OO_L seed drills in all widths can be equipped with a coulter section, which significantly improves the quality of seedbed preparation in heavy soils.
The new generation of the OMEGA OO_L seed drills with a hopper made from polyethylene will be offered in the width of 3 and 6 metres
STRIEGEL-PRO PN – A SOLUTION FOR CROP RESIDUE MANAGEMENT FOR SMALLER FARMERS
High crops require precise performance of all working operations. The new mounted version of the STRIEGEL-PRO PN straw harrow represents an effective help with the crop residue management, which is the operation where everything that matters starts. Many primary agricultural businesses focus on plant production. A reasonable solution is to return the crop residue back to the soil and thus increase the ratio of organic material in soil. The straw harrow cuts the crop residue and spreads it evenly on the field and that makes it easier to deal with a large quantity of material for the machines that follow. Moreover, the straw harrow gets the seeds from the second growth into the soil which can be then efficiently destroyed mechanically. The straw harrow can be applied in a wide range of operations. Farmers like to use it for seedbed preparation to open up soil and provide for its faster warm-up, or for permanent grassland to remove grass waste and for overall regeneration of meadows.
FERTI-BOX FB 1500TN – PROFILE FERTILISATION FOR SMALL FARMERS
Thanks to FERTI-BOX, it is possible to apply fertilisers while processing soil. FERTI-BOX FB 1500 TN is designed for current or future users of the TERRALAND TN chisel ploughs. The box with a capacity of 1500 litres is integrated directly in the frame of the chisel plough. The fertiliser is delivered to the metering device by a screw conveyor and from there to the application end pieces of the chisel plough. The electronic drive and the pressurised version of the machine provide a reliable fertiliser application.
FERTI-BOX FB 1500 TN with the capacity of 1500L can be mounted on the new as well as the current TERRALAND chisel ploughs
