Adjusted from inside the cab and available on the 6000R and 6000 RC (grain and fertiliser model), the full width front press wheels apply additional pressure to the soil to provide a more level surface.

Incorporated into the press wheels, the track eradicators help alleviate soil compaction from the tractor tyres. The additional SH 1120 hopper can be fitted to offer a second seed option or to distribute slug pellets or fertiliser.

Other Kuhn news concerns the trailed Prolander 6000 (6.0m) and 7500 (7.5m) seedbed cultivators which for 2022 are available with harder wearing carbide tips and strengthened tines, which are claimed to reduce vibration to offer greater control and accuracy.

Offered with a choice of rollers, the Prolander can work at speeds of up to 12km/hr. Power requirement is from 25-35hp/m.
