Espro 4000 R has a minimum power requirement of 140hp and is compatible with a variety of seed types and sizes, says the manufacturer.

 

The new unit shares several features with its larger sibling, the 6000 R, using two rows of cultivating discs, followed by a single row of offset 900mm deep tread tyres.

 

The 4000 R also gets Kuhn’s Crossflex coulter bar; coulters are mounted individually on polyurethane blocks to improve ground contour following. The manufacturer says this ensures a consistent seeding depth across the full working width, resulting in consistent seedling emergence.

 

Adjusting settings such as seeding rate, drilling depth and tamping pressure is done via the firms VT50 or CCI2200 IsoBus controller, which also operates the machines automated headland turn function.

 

The machine can be specified with front press wheels to help level the soil in front of the cultivating discs, and also to try to prevent the machine sinking in lighter soils.

 

The machines are available now, retailing at £74,653.
