The first part of our drill comparison was all about the metal and how easy it is to hitch up, prepare a seedbed and fill the hopper. This second part focuses on the metering system, distribution and seed placement of the assembled machines

There is a lot of ground to cover here, so we’ll dive straight in to the nitty gritty with a look at the base of the hoppers. When it comes to emptying, none of the assembled group achieved top marks, which is partly down to poor accessibility. Nearly all have a separate outlet with a slide opening for larger volumes. Kuhn and Väderstad supply their drills with a suitable hose, which is an option on the Amazone.
