Integrated press for reset plough

Operating independently to the plough, Kuhn’s new integrated Duo-Liner furrow press can be fitted to an auto-reset plough, something which has not been possible on similar Besson and Lemken setups.

Currently available for the four-, five- and six-furrow models of its Vari-Master L in-furrow ploughs, the row of dual 600mm diameter press wheels are attached to the plough by two independent hydraulic parallelogram systems.

Using the company’s Steady Control automatic pressure regulation system, the Duo-Liner exerts up to 90kg of pressure at each pair of press wheels.

The KTS 10 control box allows operators to lift and position the press from the cab. Turnover control is fully automated at the headland.
