New Horsch Serto SC seed drill on display at Agritechnica 2017


The new Serto SC is a compact seed drill from Horsch for large farms with working widths of 10m and 12m. It features an all-over tyre packer combined with a heavy double-disc seed coulter. Two seed coulters run behind every tyre with a row spacing of 16.6 cm, similar to the well-proven Pronto system, and the all-over packer lowers horsepower requirement and saves fuel.

The new HORSCH parallelogram coulter features large bearings and is designed to be stable and durable. It is ideal for difficult conditions and ensures safe seed placement even if the seedbed is rough. The development was influenced by the experiences of the Maestro single grain technology. To guarantee an even placement, the Serto SC is equipped with a packer for levelling and consolidation.

The Serto SC has a 6,000-litre hopper capacity with a 50:50 split allowing either 6,000 litres of seed or a combination of 3,000 litres of seed and fertiliser can be applied. For a third component, a hopper with a capacity of 300 litres is available for micro-granular compounds.

Designed to be easy to use the machine folds to a 3m transport width at the push of a button, the wavy discs effectively loosen tractor tracks and, due to the low seed hopper, all components are easily accessible and the operator has a great view of the machine and the field.
