Strip-Tillage System Is User-Friendly
The pull behind or 3-pt. hitch-furnished equipment is foldable and features 8, 12 or 16-row units spaced at 30 in.
The fixed frame toolbar and connected row units are designed for easy adjustment without additional tools. Components are built without grease zerks to save time and increase productivity plus all mechanisms take identical bearings to reduce downtime.
“It’s a strip tillage machine for liquid, dry, and NH3 gas applications,” says Randy Papineau, Sales and Precision Farming Specialist for Kuhn distributor, Grosshans International. “Tubes for all three applications are available, even at the same time. Dry tanks can be mounted onto a pull-behind bar, plus there’s a hitch on the back to tow an NH3 tank.”
The 1210’s uniquely designed row units consist of adjustable 25-in., 6-ga. cutting coulters and scrapers, 16-in. floating notched disc blades to clear residue from the strip, adjustable depth shanks, and Kuhn’s exclusive Strik’R technology chain reels.
“A closing disc seals the trench up if you’re putting in any liquid or anhydrous,” Papineau says. “The rolling basket features chains that turn, slap at the clods, and break them up, creating a smooth seed bed.”
Papineau recommends farmers contact their local dealer for pricing but says the 8-row, 3-pt. hitch models start in the $60,000 to $65,000 range. Prices increase on the larger sizes.
