Horsch have announced the release of their latest model – the Versa 6 SW.
The Versa SW is characterised by various combination options and individual features depending on the location. The flexible 3-point headstock allows you to easily switch between the power harrow combination and Maestro. The new seed wagon combinations are characterised by their flexibility and variety.
The machine features a 6m rotary harrow combination with four working zones. The leading tyre packer reduces tracks and distributes the machine weight across the whole working width. The rotary harrow ensures an optimum production of fine soil. The following combination of packer and TurboDisc seed coulters ensures a precise seed placement. The tine spacing of the machine components can be selected between 12.5cm and 15cm.
The Versa 6 SW has a universal 3-point linkage allowing the operator to mount the Maestro or Taro lines, as well as the new Sprinter SL and Avatar SL, enormously increasing the flexibility of the machine. It is available with a 4000 litre single hopper or 5000 litre double hopper with 60:40 partition. The fan with the optional oil cooler is directly integrated in the hopper.
Mathias Schneider, head of PU seeding, said: “Difficult weather and sowing conditions place a lot of demands on farmers. With the Versa 6 SW, we have rethought precise sowing technology for difficult conditions. The possibility of a continuous packer in front of the rotary harrow opens up new possibilities in terms of weight distribution and reduction of the machine weight on the rotary harrow and seed bar. Paired with proven components from other products and innovative ideas, such as a central and easily accessible sowing depth adjustment, the Versa 6 SW expands our offering for customers with heavy soils and difficult sowing conditions.”
