3.0m drill combination systems - Part 2: Seed distribution, fuel consumption and more

In this second part of our 3.0m power harrow drill combination comparison we look at seed distribution, both across the drill and in the rows, plus looking at practical differences to include hopper emptying, handling and operation.

In the first part of our drill system comparison (profi 8/2022), we considered hooking up the units, the ease of filling the hoppers and their respective capacities (seed only). Here we consider calibrating the drill, emptying the hopper, seed distribution across rows and, of increased relevance, fuel consumption.
