Strip tillage specialists Mzuri will be introducing their new 2-year warranty and low disturbance coulter system for the Pro-Til range at this month’s LAMMA event.

Visitors to the Mzuri stand G39 at the East of England showground on 18-19 January will be able to see the Pro-Til 3m and 4m models with the new coulters and the Rezult, the company’s straw rake for stale seedbed management.

The new low disturbance coulter system is available in single and dual row versions which can be specified for new machines this season, as well as retrofitted to older models. The new coulter design delivers improved seeding depth accuracy at less soil disturbance.

As only the points come into contact with the soil, metal wear and tear is considerably reduced, resulting in lower running costs. Furthermore, tungsten upgrades are available to extend the point longevity even further.

The legs feature an integral seed distribution unit complete with a vent to regulate air pressure which awards a more precise seed placement. Not only are they more cost-effective, the new coulters are much quicker to service as just the points need to be replaced.

The Pro-Til drills feature a row of leading discs followed by a set of staggered legs, so users can work with large amounts of straw and previous crop residue. Auto-reset coulter legs are fitted with pneumatic press wheels to reconsolidate the soil twice for maximum seed-to-soil contact.
