Horsch's Avatar SD40 Disc Seeder splits its 166 bushel product carrying capacity between two independent 83 bushel tanks with Horsch's electric driven metering system on each tank. While the operator can use the full capacity for seed, the Avatar SD40 also gives the ability to use two products and place dry fertilizer in furrow with seed.
The Avatar SD40’s opener arm mounts to the toolbar using a rubber torsion mount system. All the openers are mounted on a rock shaft. Down pressure is simply adjusted in cab and the rubber torsion is the flex point. With its compact design, overall simple concept, and many proven features, the Avatar SD40 offers high performance seeding without the need for big horsepower. ISOBUS compatible system allows the operator to utilize existing ISO virtual terminals in the tractor. Whether using an ISOVT or the Horsch monitor system, operators can use prescription maps and collect data.
Large tires along with a toolbar weight transfer system virtually eliminate wheel tracks in the field, securing yield otherwise lost to compaction.
