Better seeding precision
Different chassis to meet a maximum of needs
Suitable for transport, our range of single grain seed drills offers a wide choice of fertiliser hopper options or microgranulators that can equip our MAXIMA 3.
All the available undercarriages are detailed below:
- MAXIMA 3 TS: Single telescopic, this undercarriage has a reduced transport width, it can work in stony conditions to seed 6 to 8 rows with spacings between 55 and 80 cm.
- MAXIMA 3 TD: Double telescopic, this model is ideal for small journeys. Designed to seed 6 rows, you have the choice between front or rear wheels to pass on stony or low-bearing capacity sandy soil type.
- MAXIMA 3 TD L: Double wide telescopic, like the TD it also allows you to benefit from a 7th row while avoiding rolling over the future seeding line.
- MAXIMA 3 TI: Indexable telescopic, this model makes it possible to seed several crops with adjustable spacings.
- MAXIMA 3 TI L: Wide indexable telescopic, can seed 8 rows with wide spacings of 45 to 80 cm to adapt to beets, corn or soy.
- MAXIMA 3 TIM: Multiple indexable telescopic, allows several different crops to be seeded with small spacings.
- MAXIMA 3 TIM L: Wide multiple indexable telescopic, offers the possibility to assemble up to 8 seed rows for maize or sunflower and 9 rows for soybean and rapeseed.
Evolution of the distribution and pressure of the soil
- Constant depth control pressure, simple and easy to adjust without tools. There are 4 different setting positions with a total of 180 kg of disc pressure. A single spring stabilises the position of the unit and allows for better seed placement.
- Distribution is also improved with an optimised selection thanks to the internal wall. The new ejector accompanies the seed more precisely. Combined with a modified dispensing hatch with a clean air cut to ensure optimal seed release. The discs of the unit have more holes to ensure perfect seed selection.
Maximum comfort of use
Simple and intuitive settings
A robust and reliable unit
Equipment adapted to all needs
- front equipment: clod remover and debris clearer
- intermediate equipment: intermediate wheel, closing discs and closing scrapers
- rear equipment: V-Max roller, V-HD roller and OTIFLEX roller
Details of each one can be found in the equipment and options section.
Seed drills linked to new technologies
- adjustment of the seed population from the cabin for more rapid execution and optimum comfort of use
- dose modulation while seeding thanks to the anti-skid property of the drive wheels. This ensures that the seed dose per hectare is perfectly respected
- a row cut by GPS or manually. This first one operates by stopping the engine on each row without loss of seed. This ensures significant seed savings
- a short-term reduction in machine maintenance with less lubrication in season and fewer wear parts.
Increased performance thanks to the ISOBUS CCI 1200 terminal
- automatic row cut by GPS to avoid recrossing in the tips
- improved yields (average increase of 3% with seed rate modulation)
- reduced seed costs
greater flexibility. Its large touch screen allows the display of several
pieces of essential information and their simultaneous viewing by the driver. This new terminal offers a market rarity since it allows
two different interfaces to be viewed on the same screen.
Fertiliser / Microgranulator
- fertilisation with 2 hoppers of 260 l
- fertilisation with 1 hopper of 950 l
- fertilisation with 1 hopper of 1350 l
There are also different models of fertiliser buriers for all situations: Non-Stop plough burier and staggered Non-Stop disc burier.
And two types of incorporation are possible with the microgranulators:
- in the furrow (insecticide or starter fertiliser)
- on the seeding line (anti-slug)

With full section control and improved seeding depth management on their new Kuhn Maxima 8-row maize drill, Dorset contractors S. C. Marsh Ltd are taking precision drilling to a whole new level.

A 10 acre maize maze at the National Forest Adventure Farm in Staffordshire, was created using an electrically driven drill directed by RTK satellite guidance, offering a spectacular illustration of the capabilities of modern precision farming.

“We wanted the technology that would deliver the drilling performance that modern farmers expect and also the confidence that the machine is going to be reliable,” he says. “Over two seasons, our experience is that the machine goes out in the morning and we hear nothing – so the reliability is certainly there – and it’s also allowed us to increase the forward speed for drilling, without any detriment to seed spacing and drilling depth.”
