Agritechnica: Tulip's in Hanover

Tulip Industries is promoting a new broadcasting air seeder for mounting on cultivators. The Polymat Compact has a capacity of 400 litres, although this can be increased by adding 150-litre extensions.
The fan unit is hydraulically powered with mechanical metering but, if the Compact proves sufficiently popular, Tulip's export manager, Stijn Tilborghs, says an electric version could be developed. Currently the €6,900 seeder has eight outlets to match Tulip's rigid cultivators, while a 16-outlet version is planned for wider machines in the future.
Here at Agritechnica, the Polymat Compact is being shown on Tulip's new 3.0m Quatro Disc cultivator which, as its name suggests, incorporates four rows of tines.
To keep its frame short, the Quatro Disc's first two rows move soil to the right while the rear pair bring it back again. There is a choice of plain or scalloped discs; alternatively, both disc types can be used together.
