The SH series presented in autumn 2020 is broadly similar to the S series. In practice, the difference between them is a coulter pressure of up to 60 kg that is hydraulically controlled from the tractor. SH series drills are also based on a durable wedge-disc type coulter that maintains a precise sowing depth.
The Junkkari SH series is designed for traditionally cultivated soil and, under appropriate conditions, soil where reduced tillage has been used. The SH series presented in autumn 2020 is broadly similar to the S series. In practice, the difference between them is a coulter pressure of up to 60 kg that is hydraulically controlled from the tractor. Like the rest of the range, SH-series machines were updated in autumn 2020, improving them over the earlier SMD models. In addition to the new appearance, other significant changes include:
- The land wheel has grown with its redesign, achieving reduced slippage and greater sowing precision. The power transmission from the land wheel to the gear box has also been strengthened.
- Maintenance of the roller wheels has been made easier with a centralised lubrication system, which comes as standard with 7.5x20" roller wheels.
- Steps have been added in each corner inside the hopper to make movement easier, and the remaining seed quantity can be easily checked using the handy scale sticker. Hopper cameras are also available as an optional extra.
- An extension is also available for the hopper's partition wall for organic growers. This allows the partition wall to be placed fully forward to maximise the volume inside the hopper.
- The ISOBUS controller has been updated and its user-friendliness has been further improved. A handy row marker lifting feature for clearing poles is included as a new feature.
- The larger Plus hopper has stylish LED lighting as standard.
- The updated 1-row s-tine cultivator and front-mounted tined weeder are now available as optional extras.
SH series drills are based on a durable wedge-disc type coulter that maintains a precise sowing depth. The Combi model deposits seeds and fertilizer in a familiar way in the same row using the same coulter with a row spacing of 12.5 cm.
Drills are available in 3-metre and 4-metre variants and with Plus hoppers. The Plus hopper is the largest on the market: 4,200 l on the 3-metre model and 5,700 l on the 4-metre model. Additionally, a wide variety of optional accessories and features are available to make the driver's job easier.
The operation of the SH series is based on the wedge-disc type coulter that holds a set depth precisely, thanks to its bevelled profile. Height adjustment is performed at the spot where the seeds and fertilizer are deposited into the ground. Coulter pressure is 10–60 kg, and the series' drills are always available in the Combi version, which deposits both fertilizer and seeds using the same coulter. The roller wheels include integrated bogeys that ensure that the rows remain uniform regardless of the terrain. The roller wheels are available with 16" and 20" tyres.
The hopper is situated above the coulters, allowing for the feeding mechanism to receive a constant feed of material, for the feed distances to be short and for angles in the feedline to be minimised. The hopper has a spring-loaded tarpaulin cover that is extremely easy to use and makes filling the hopper effortless. Junkkari's products have the largest hoppers on the market, allowing for fewer fills per use.
The combi drill is powered by the land wheel, from which power is transferred via a continuously variable transmission to the feeding mechanism. Feed quantities can be set precisely as desired from small quantities of small seeds to large quantities of large seeds. The feed is reliable in all conditions, even without electricity from the tractor.
Reliability and simplicity are the focus of the feed mechanism's design. The entirety of the feed roller's width is always used, precisely maintaining even small feed quantities at all drive speeds. When sowing small seeds, the only change that needs to be made is the introduction of a separate small feed roller, which allows for precise feed quantities of just a few kilograms. Calibration is very easy to perform and adjustments can be made with a remote controller for fertilizer and seeds, available as an optional extra.
The SH series uses a wedge-disc type coulter, which maintains a set sowing depth very precisely. The model always comes with a Combi coulter, which deposits both fertilizer and seeds using the same coulter. Coulter pressure is controlled hydraulically from the tractor, ranging from 10 kg to 60 kg.
All models use Plus hoppers: 4,200 l on 3-metre models and 5,700 l on 4-metre models. The hoppers have an adjustable partition wall, for which an extension is available as an optional extra for organic growers. All hopper models have a simple, easy-to-use cover with a quick release latch. The cover can be opened both ways or up to the partition. Hoppers are equipped with fertilizer sieves as standard and seed sieves are available as an optional extra.
All hoppers can be equipped with small seed and starter extras at the factory or retroactively. A camera system is also available. Seed hoppers are equipped with a new, handy level scale that can be used to see the quantity of seed left in the hopper. Sturdy self-cleaning working platforms, railings and steps have been designed to make access and work tasks safe.
We offer a wide variety of controllers. The simplest form available is an electronic surface area meter that has two surface area calculators with the basic controller.
G-Wizard's graphical controller offers access to most of the functions associated with managing and monitoring the combi drill. All the necessary information is displayed in real time and can be seen at a glance on the screen. Depending on the options installed on the drill, features such as monitoring of driving speed and data from two surface area calculators, hopper level sensors, axel rotation sensors and the gearbox, control of row markers, spraying bands and the half lift function as well as remote fertilizer control (G-Wizard Plus) are available.
The updated ISOBUS controller makes it possible to control the combi drill from the tractor's own ISOBUS controller. A separate ISOBUS controller installed in the tractor is also available. The ISOBUS controller enables you to adjust fertilizer and seed quantities while driving and make use of precision farming applications, allowing for adjustments to be made based on location information. Features such as monitoring of driving speed and data from three surface area calculators, hopper level sensors, axel rotation sensors and the gearbox, control of row markers, spraying bands, the half lift function and the row marker lifting feature for clearing poles as well as remote fertilizer and seed control are available.
The wheels situated behind the coulters act as both the travel and roller wheels of the drill. This removes the need for separate rolling after the crops have been sowed. Two tractor-pattern tyre types are available for the roller wheels of the 3-metre unit: 7.5x16" and 7.5x20", and a larger option is always available for the 4-metre unit. A larger tyre size is particularly useful on lighter soil types, as the drill becomes lighter to tow and the risk of bulldozing is reduced. Larger tyre sizes also reduce fuel costs and cause less damage to soil structure, thanks to lower surface pressure.
The wheels also allow for the drill to be towed between locations with a full hopper and provide a strong and open design. Locations that may need maintenance are easily reached, and centralised lubrication always comes as standard with the 7.5x20" wheels. Thanks to the bogey construction, the wheels follow the shape of the terrain very closely, the rows stay uniform and the drill remains steady while it is being towed from one location to another.
The following harrow comes as standard and harrows between the rows, breaking up the soil packed by the drill's tyres. The harrowed layer of soil prevents the surface from silting and a crust from forming as well as slowing evaporation of moisture from the soil. The half lift function, which is available as an optional extra, ensures the harrow remains in contact with the ground while the tractor and drill turn around on the headland.
In addition to the options mentioned above, there are a number of other extras available, including various towing solutions, front cultivators, row markers, spraying band switches, hopper level sensors, seed sieves, half lift functionality,
hydraulinen vannaspainatus, esimerkitsin and small seed and starter extras.
