Lemken unveils hopper, coulter bar system

Presented by

Lemken’s new Solitair 23+ front hopper and OptiDisc 25 coulter bar will offer greater versatility and increased precision to buyers, the company says.

Lemken's new OptiDisc 25 coulter bar will now be available in folding versions of up to five and six metres

The front hopper and coulter bar are now inclusive of ISOBUS technology, making adjustments easier and seeding more efficient through the MegaDrill control on the tractor terminal, allowing seeding without overlap of up to four width sections.

Lemken’s Solitair 23+ front hopper, when combined with the Zirkon 12 and OptiDisc 25 coulter bar, delivers a better distribution of weight compared to rear-mounted systems and, along with its compact, agile drilling combination, allows smaller tractors to be used for efficient drilling operations.

Both seeds and fertiliser are suitable for the Solitair 23+.

The OptiDisc 25 coulter bar will also be available in five and six metre foldable versions, and three and four metre rigid versions, in addition to the four and 4.5m folding versions already available on the market.

The new folding variants feature an additional transport system for road use capable of taking loads of up to 3.5 tonnes off the rear axle and can lock and unlock in just a few steps.

At the heart of the OptiDisc 25 coulter bar, is a proven parallelogram-controlled double disc coulters, which, along with depth control rollers, ensure seeds and placed precisely at the pre-set depth with both mulch and conventional tillage.

The Solitair 23+ front hopper is available now while the 4m and 4.5m OptiDisc 25 coulter bars are currently available, and the 5m and 6m models will be available from January 2022.
