Amazone has added the new Precea 6000-2AFCC to its unique line of precision air seeders with a 3-point linkage.
The best way to improve performance is to use the sturdy KG rotary cultivator and the accurate air seeder together. This combination is now available with a working width of 6 m and eight rows. Combined with the FTender front-mounted hopper, it makes a very flexible tool.
With its “on-grip” tines, the strong KG 6002-2 Super rotary cultivator mixes the soil’s surface to make it very even. The separation of the coarse clods left on the soil surface, and fine soil in the area of the root horizon creates the ideal growing conditions. Forward speeds of up to 12 km/h can be achieved depending on the soil conditions and the working depth.
The system for switching between the Precea precision air seeder and the Avant seed rail with RoTeC or TwinTeC coulters can be done quickly. Extended by the FTender for the supply of fertiliser or seed, the solo machines form a highly flexible and extremely manoeuvrable drill combination.
The countless application scenarios, especially the combined steps into one pass, make the Precea 6000-2AFCC an economically-attractive machine.
PreTeC mulch sowing coulter
The new PreTeC mulch sowing coulter can be mechanically loaded with up to 220 kg of coulter pressure. With the hydraulic option, the pressure can be changed up to 350 kg from the tractor’s seat while moving. This ensures smooth running and uniform field emergence when used for both sowing after the plough and mulch sowing.
The coulter unit can quickly adapt to the specific field requirements without needing tools. The placement depth can be individually adjusted, and the sowing unit can be moved to the park position via a notched quadrant when the machine is set down. The contact pressure and the opening angle of the V-pressure rollers can also be adjusted very easily without the use of tools. The complete coulter unit is easily accessible, and the maintenance-free bearings and bushings are optimally protected from dust.

Precise over-pressure singling system
The singling system in the Precea is based on overpressure generated by the blower fan. Both the seed hopper and the complete metering unit are subject to overpressure. The seed is fed from a seed hopper to a singling disc hermetically sealed by the metering unit and pressed onto the holes in the disc. Precise singling is then ensured via the following three stripper fingers.
The seed then reaches the propulsion channel, where the contact pressure is stopped, and the grain is shot precisely into the seed furrow and caught by the catcher roller. An optical sensor closely monitors the singling process, reports any misses, and doubles to the tractor terminal. Fully automatic, electric stripper finger adjustment via SmartControl is another welcome development.
