The new KUHN Krause CCX 9000 Cover Crop Seeder for use on the Excelerator® Vertical Tillage System provides farmers the ability to establish a cover crop while performing vertical tillage, saving time and money.

In the tractor cab, the Quantron S2 control monitor provides a simplified calibration process, which takes a matter of minutes, and seed settings can be saved for future use.

On the Excelerator, the CCX 9000 is capable of application rates from 1 to 385 pounds per acre. The electrically driven metering unit can handle a wide range of seeds and application using an electronic speed signal from the tractor to ensure application rates remain constant. Adjust seed depth by simply angling the seed distributor plates toward the Star Wheels (deep) or toward the reel (shallow). The adjustment is made easily without wrenches.

The CCX 9000 is available to order for delivery beginning July 2017 for 14- to 25-foot Excelerator 8000 models or 11- to 25-foot Excelerator 8005 models.
