Kverneland Optima

Kverneland Optima – the universal precision drill with the intelligent framework

The Optima is the universal precision drill for maize, sunflowers, field beans, unpelleted beet, pelleted beet, dwarf beans, soya beans, peas, and many other types of seed. It can be used for a whole diversity of applications and offers greater capacity through increased working widths. All rigid Optima frames can be equipped with either mechanical or electric drive - also normal seeding, Tandem and HD-II rows are available. The Optima can be combined with an optional fertiliser spreader and front hopper. The Optima rigid with mechanical drive can be fitted with the mechanical micro-granule applicator.

The rigid Optima is available in 3.0m and 4.5m with a row width from narrow 30cm up to 80cm depending on the kind of row and equipment.

The combination of the Optima with the iXtra LiFe allows the application of liquid fertiliser during seeding. For more information, please see  iXtra LiFe  

The Advantages:

  • Stable parallelogram
  • All parallelogram pivot points with maintenance-free bonded bushes
  • All press wheels with maintenance free ball bearings
  • Chill cast coulters with quick release clamping to the coulter housing

Sowing Elements Optima

The sowing units – like the whole machine – are modular in design

  • The basic element always remains the same and the equipment can be varied according to individual requirements.
  • The press wheels run on maintenance free ball bearings. The sowing depth can be infinitely adjusted by means of a screw jack. A scale ensures even depth adjustment over all rows.
  • The sowing coulters are designed with a high attachment point. This enables them to work deeply when sowing beans or on dry soil, without the housing being subject to wear.
  • Precise depth control is achieved via the tandem design of the sowing units for beet.
  • Standard sowing unit for conventional seeding in prepared conditions: maize coulter and Farmflex depth wheel 370mm (500mm optional), spring-loaded coverer and lifting device as standard
  • Optima HD sowing unit: elements for mulch and conventional seeding

Seeding Heart Optima

Seeding heart without seals

  • The patented seeding heart by Kverneland has reduced maintenance costs to a minimum
  • No friction, no wear, low drive torque, minimum maintenance: The seed disc rotates in the seeding heart together with the vacuum chamber. This seeding drum is connected to the vacuum fan via a hollow shaft
  • This seed heart principal results in no loss of vacuum, and therefore a low vacuum requirement

Optima e-drive / e-drive II

e-drive/e-drive II – complete control and monitoring of the machine from the tractor cab in accordance with ISOBUS standard

  • With e-drive/e-drive II, each sowing unit is driven individually via an electric motor.
  • The low-maintenance drive is connected directly to the seeding heart via a toothed belt in an encapsulated dust proof housing.
  • This enable an extremely compact design and smooth drive characteristics with low current consumption
  • All the data is entered and read out via an ISOBUS terminal like IsoMatch Tellus PRO or Tellus GO.
  • The sowing distances are infinitely adjustable and can be changed during sowing.
  • All the sowing units can be switched off individually.
  • In conjunction with “close row” sowing widths of 37.5cm a further benefit of the e-drive/e-drive II comes into play: Individual tramline switching. Tramlines can be set up for any spray width.
  • The e-drive/e-drive II features complete electronic monitoring of all machine functions including seed monitoring via an opto sensor.

Fertilizer Placement

  • Stable design, modular system, low maintenance costs, high degree of wear resistance and optimum depth placement.
  • For fertiliser placement Kverneland supplies hoppers for different applications.
  • The chain drive for metering can be adjusted from 106 to 390kg per hectare at a distance between rows of 75cm.
  • The fertilizer applicator is driven centrally by an easily accessible side mounted gear box.
  • Fertilising coulter, standard seeding with narrow coulter design and stable, reliable construction, coil spring protection from sideways forces
  • Mulch seeding notched double-disc coulter for blockage-free and precise fertiliser placement by a Ø 350mm notched double-disc coulter.
  • All Optima models can be equipped with micro granule applicators. The hoppers are made of special grade plastics and have a capacity of 35 litres. Depending on the working width the hoppers supply 2 to 3 seeding units.

ISOBUS Intelligence - GEOCONTROL

IsoMatch GEOCONTROL - Cost saving with immediate payback 

Seeding with GPS and GEOCONTROL in combination with an electric driven precision drill is a major step towards precision and cost saving. These machines are all equipped with ISOBUS technology which with the help of the IsoMatch Tellus terminal, can be easily controlled. 

Each electric driven seeding element, in combination with GPS and GEOCONTROL, is automatically switched on or off in exactly the right place, ensuring there is no overlap with any row that has already been seeded. This is especially handy in triangular fields, on curved or irregular shaped headlands.

ISOBUS Intelligence - GEOSEED - Optima

GEOSEED - Precision at high end

GEOSEED is offered in two different levels:

GEOSEED Level 1 is the synchronization in the machines working width. This improves the distribution of seeds up to perfection in parallel or diamond pattern: Positive effects are the best use of nutrients, water and sun. Also the wind and water erosion is decreased.

GEOSEED Level 2 is the synchronization in the whole field. This is the necessary requirement for interrow cultivation, also across the seeding direction. GEOSEED is the only system in the world, that makes this mechanic weeds control possible!
