Yes there will be a dynamic drill at lamma show
On the Samagri Stand 20.708
I look forward to seeing you guys there.

Just a thought - any attempts to swap the leading disc for a row cleaner? I really like the drill but I have to have something that can work in chopped spring barley straw which you couldn't do successfully last year.

Hi
With the new notched disc and shorter coulter we are confident that it will work in chopped spring barley straw now.
There will also be new variants coming on stream during 2020. All based on the same layout as the current dynamic.

Is the turbo disc straight or at a slight angle?

How long before we see a wider version? Would like to see much bigger transport wheels given that the large proportion of the machine weight is carried on the wheels all of the time.

There will be a seven metre for this summer. And an eight and nine metre end of this year.
For machines larger than this the ocean version will be redeveloped.
A six metre dynamic was fitted with larger wheels this year but it was found not to perform any better than the current size wheels. When in sowing position the larger proportion of the weight is on the tractor. And we haven’t seen any
Problems when turning on the headlands this autumn. Bear in mind the drill doesn’t weigh 12+ tons empty like some
Other machines.

I had a chat to Sam on your stand yesterday but you were busy @Vitu I like the new serrated disc but wonder how long the sharp edge will last in flints. Please let us know how you get on with it.

How much does a 6m Virkar weigh?

I’ll keep you informed how it goes. Virkar tested it all summer in stones and report that it cuts longer than the standard
disc as it’s easier to get in the ground than a non notched disc
