English manufacturer Horizon debuted a new mounted no-till drill at the 2023 Agritechnica show in Hanover, Germany.
Irish Farmers Journal reports the company, which has only been in business for 4 years, previously only built large trailed drills but went with a lighter option for the new M:DSX. Horizon's website says the M:DSX is designed to offer all the benefits of the company's DSX drill technology in a lighter and more compact platform.
The fully mounted M:DSX utilizes the same seeding coulter as the DSX, working in conjunction with the Horizon FT2200 front hopper or customers’ existing front hopper. The M:DSX has row spacing options of 22 or 25 centimeters (8.7 or 9.8 inches) with 25 horsepower required per meter (3.2 feet). The drill can sow two different products together or in alternate rows, and it has 1-2 distribution heads for multiple products.
The M:DSX with 25-centimeter spacing offers optional pneumatic row cleaners. An optional 400 liter (105.7 gallon) mini hopper, weight blocks and tractor weight transfer system are also available.
