The Universal drill Ultima CS produced by Köckerling is known for high performance in all conditions. For many years the Ultima CS drill has been used by professional farmers sowing cereals, rape, beans, peasor maize. Excellent yields and low operating costs make this drill suitable over all. The Ultima is a compact, high output drill with working widths of 3.00 m, 4.00 m and 6.00 m.
The seed is placed in 60 mm rows. Band spacing is 175 - 180 mm depending on model. The seed spacing allows each plant its own space and nutrition leading to a healthier plant. The point pressure of more than 200kg produces a constant sowing depth. This is particularly important whether sowing shallow to rape or deep beans and peas.
The single acting hydraulic ram on the sowing element gives sowing depth adjustment while at the same time acting as a shock absorber against stones. The hydraulic cylinders protect the drill frame eliminating bounce even at high drilling speeds. The picture shows the hydraulic in shallow and deep work.
