Kuhn Farm Machinery has added a trio of wider models to its Prolander cultivator range; the 9000 (9.2m), 12000 (12.2m) and 14000 (14.2m). All three are suitable for controlled traffic systems.

Aimed at users requiring a versatile and high output machine for a variety of soil conditions, like the smaller siblings in the range, the wider models can work a range of seedbeds, including ploughed, cultivated or stubble.

Working depths of 3.0-12cm are possible on all eight models in the Prolander range and a new 90 x 13mm S-tooth is said to be ideal for ‘tearing’ stubbles to guarantee a complete mix of surface material. Existing tine options are available, including the 70 x 12mm S-shaped tine and 60mm or 200mm goose foot tines. Double U or Double Tube rollers can also be specified.

“The Prolander has grown in popularity over recent seasons due to its versatility and ease of use,” says Edd Fanshawe, Kuhn’s arable and connected services product specialist. “The wider models increase the appeal for growers requiring a tine cultivator capable of a wide range of operations, and with a modest power requirement of 25-35hp/m.”

Incidentally, the five smaller models from 4.0m to 7.5m are now available with the SH 600 – a 600-litre hopper designed to sow cover crops and small seeds in a one-pass system. Seeding options for the new larger models include Kuhn’s TF 1512 front tank.

Starting price for the 9.0m Prolander 9000, which has a power requirement from 225-315hp, is £83,000.
