The latest M model in the Avatar drill range from Horsch is said to offer operational reliability in difficult conditions, with minimum soil movement and erosion protection. Available in an 18m working width, the Avatar M is built around a new central frame, making it possible for different operations around hopper partitions and systems.
It’s equipped with a triple tank system with three separate chambers, with capacities of 2,000 litres, 5,300 litres and 5,300 litres, with independent metering and simultaneous sowing through the SingleDisc seed coulters.
The options list includes a weighing system so that the operator can see how much is in each hopper, which adds an additional safety factor in addition to the standard residual quantity calculation. Large tyres minimise soil pressure and reduce compaction, even when the hoppers are full or the ground is wet, and the SingleDisc coulters can be adapted individually to different conditions.
For nighttime operations, the WorkLight Pro LED headlight system can be specified, allowing operators to see the coulters clearly. Half-width shut-off is included as standard and pushed trash wheels are available as an option to remove organic residues from the seed horizon.
