The KUHN Krause CCX 9000 cover crop seeder, for use on 11’ – 34’ Excelerator models, provides you with the ability to establish a cover crop while performing vertical tillage – saving you time and money!
Cover crops can offer a variety of benefits such as sequestering nutrients, limiting soil erosion, improving soil structure and inhibiting weed emergence. However, finding the time to plant a cover crop right after harvest can be a challenge, and an extra pass over the fields is generally undesirable.
The KUHN Krause CCX 9000 Series cover crop seeders are designed to be used in conjunction with the KUHN Krause Excelerator®. This gives you the opportunity to seed a cover crop whilst simultaneously using a vertical tillage operation to manage residue and prepare it for break-down over winter.
Features may include:Quantron S-2
The Quantron S-2 terminal, with 5 ½” color touchscreen, allows the operator to control and monitor all aspects of the CCX 9000 from the tractor cab.Calibration
The Quantron S-2 terminal guides the operator through the calibration process, and is completed in minutes. Simply enter the seed type, target rate and forward speed. The Quantron S-2 provides the setting for the metering unit and indicates whether the small seed splines are necessary or not. The Quantron S-2 will indicate the maximum and minimum seed rates and forward speed possible with the given metering unit setting. Up to 60 sets of calibration data can be saved for future reference.
During calibration, seed is metered through the calibration door and into the seed collection bag supplied with the machine. The calibration door is opened and closed without using any wrenches and is equipped with a sensor to prevent the operator from beginning seeding without having first closed it.
The quantity of seed collected is weighed and the weight is entered into the Quantron S-2. The system then provides the operator the final calibration setting.Metering Unit Adjustment
The Quantron S-2 indicates the required metering unit opening according to the speed type, rate and forward speed entered. The metering unit is then adjusted using the handle and the setting is shown on the easy-to-read scale.
