New rigid 6 m ED 6000 Special precision air seeder

As the machine has been designed specifically for simple and older tractors, the demands on the tractor’s hydraulics and electrics are very low. On the ED 6000, the blower fan, for example, is driven via the PTO shaft. The singling drive and the fertiliser metering are carried out mechanically via a ground wheel. For monitoring the singling process, and as a hectare counter, AMASCAN+ is utilised.

AMAZONE supplies the ED 6000 Special as an eight row machine with fertiliser hopper for under root fertilisation. For sowing sugar beet, rape or soya, AMAZONE equips the ED 6000 with 12 sowing units. The precision air seeder can be optionally ordered with two micro-granular applicators with a hopper size of 110 l. The Micro plus applicators can be used to apply a starter fertiliser on or in every individual row.
