Your benefits

A light, high-performance seeding unit

KOSMA precision seed drills are light and compact. They can be coupled to small tractors

Reduced power requirement

"Lower power requirement means a lighter unit (95 kg). That's 25 kg lighter than its big brother MAXIMA 3.
The KOSMA chassis has been specially designed to give you 20 to 30% more lifting capacity (vs the MAXIMA 3 with the same equipment), and the centre of gravity is closer to the tractor.
By using smaller 4-cylinder tractors with little ballasting you will benefit from less soil compaction when seeding, fuel savings and uniform emergence.

Light but robust

Machine quality is priority for KUHN, and the KOSMA unit is a high quality tool. It is a lighter unit but extremely reliable, so you can drill with peace of mind. KOSMA precision seed drills are built with high quality materials and have an optimised design making them highly robust. These seed drills are hard wearing, and maintenance is reduced to a minimum, so return on investment is guaranteed.

The best of precision

KUHN brings you the most precise seeding solution in its category with the MAXIMA 3 distribution system, adopted by many users and approved by the TOP AGRAR 2017 test. This high-performance system is made possible by the 262 mm, very-large-diameter seed-selector disc, which selects seeds perfectly. Just like the MAXIMA 3, the KOSMA unit is capable of drilling any seed type by simply changing the disc. The seed selector makes the tool more accurate.

KUHN offers the choice of mechanical or electric-drive distribution .
Simple and robust, the mechanical drive system is unique with transmission ideally adapted to the 45-50 cm spacing of beetroot seeding. The 48V electric drive system guarantees smooth and continuous rotation for high-precision seeding. The new KOSMA unit with electric drive has many advantages:
  • Seeding density adjustment from the tractor cab
  • Application rate adjustment
  • Row shut-off by GPS or manually
Seeding precision requires fine and simple adjustments to each unit on your KOSMA precision seed drill. Adjusting coulter pressure and trash-remover height as well as fitting the press wheel are all tool-free operations and easy to do on each row of your KOSMA seed drill. Working depth can be adjusted in 0.5 cm increments from 1 to 9 cm. Independent spring-mounted gauge wheels, equipped with integrated scrapers, control working depth.

KOSMA seed drills guarantee perfect control of seed spacing and uniform seeding depth.

ISOBUS technology: the best in comfort and performance

To boost the profitability of your crops, KOSMA seed drills feature ISOBUS technology:
  • automatic row shut-off by GPS to prevent overlapping in field points
  • higher yield (average increase of 3% with application rate modulation*)
  • lower seeding costs

To save time and simplify your seeding operations, ISOBUS technology makes it easier to manage your KOSMA seed drill.
The CCI 1200 ISOBUS terminal improves the operating capacity of your KOSMA seed drill: better visibility, increased flexibility. The large, touch screen enables the driver to display and view different essential information simultaneously. With the CCI 1200 Isobus terminal, you can view two different interfaces on the same screen.

Equipment adapted to all requirements

If you are looking for fast and uniform crop germination, KOSMA precision seed drills can be fitted with 3 types of equipment to give you the best seeding quality possible in your fields:
  • Seeding-line clearance with front-mounted equipment: clod clearers and trash removers
  • Improved soil/seed contact thanks to the intermediate press wheel
  • Furrow closing and better soil consolidation around the seed with the V-profile wheels

The equipment and options section presents the features of each piece of equipment.
The germination of your crop is boosted by the intermediate wheel in stainless steel which improves soil/seed contact

A seed drill to increase your profitability

KOSMA seed drills are characterised by high precision and low investment costs.

The best value for money

KOSMA precision seed drills are lighter than the MAXIMA 3 range of seed drills. The lighter weight and clever design make for a cheaper seed drill. But KOSMA machines are no less effective, and provide the same seeding precision in well prepared soil as the MAXIMA 3 range. The KOSMA range has an excellent value for money with its light-weight and low-power requirement that produces a high work output.

KOSMA M, TS and TD: simple, robust chassis

Mixed-crop farmers, you have 2 options:

KOSMA M: the stable, rigid seed drill for sowing maize and sunflower
