The latest 12m HORSCH Avatar 12.25 SD, launched in early 2022, has been updated with new equipment options, including a new control concept. The intuitive handling system is based on ISOBUS and makes it easier for the farmer to adjust, operate and monitor the drill. The terminal interface can be adapted to the user’s requirements and, with the new hardware and software, HORSCH has created a platform which can supply an almost unlimited number of components when metering.
Thanks to the well-proven folding design the transport dimensions are very compact. With an outside width of 3 metres, it is also ideal for road transport. There are various tyre versions from 520 to 900 tyres and twin tyres.
The newly developed seed hopper platform has a capacity of 6500 litres and can be ordered as a double hopper with a 60:40 ratio. To increase the range further, especially for rape seed, a MiniDrill G&F is now available as an option. This additional hopper has a capacity of 400 litres and is often used for seed, granulates or slug pellets. Filling stops can be reduced and up to 3 components can be metered at the same time.
The seed wagon layout increases the drilling window with the large tyre widths reducing compaction even in wet soil conditions. The double support wheels at the wings ensure low tracks and optimum adaption to the soil. With its 1-row design with SingleDisc coulters and a row spacing of 25cm, the Avatar 12.25 SD is ideal for mechanical population control, but also for the most different sowing methods, such as direct seed, mulch seed and into standing catch crops. The new LED headlight system, WorkLight Pro, allows for driving at night and, like all HORSCH Avatar models, the HM skid as well as the newly developed HM Plus skid provide enormous stability and longevity of the seed coulter.
