Dimensions elec. / hydr.
Net weight elec. / hydr.
The PS 500 M2* is an excellent seeder for farmers and contractors with medium to large areas to be seeded and cultivated at the same time. It can be mounted on virtually any soil tillage implements. The fill level sensor**, factory installed, indicates when the seed level is getting low.
Also available in a corrosion-resistant PS 500 M2 D Fertilizer Edition, which can spread corrosive fertilizers, pesticides and other microgranules. The D Fertilizer Edition is hermetically sealed and cathodic dip coated (CDC; except the hydraulic fan) for corrosion resistance. Fertilizer applications are completed at a lower rate than seeding.
The seeds are fed from the seed tank via the electrically controlled seeding shaft into the air duct. Here, the seeds are conveyed by air support through plastic hoses to the dispersion plates, and then evenly distributed close to the soil. This enables precise seeding even by windy conditions!
*Requires a compatible Controller.
**For use with Controller 5.2

The seeder runs on a Kerner Helix 450 and I will sow about 150 hectares of catch crop per year.

I have mounted the PS 500 M2 on my power harrow and use it to sow catch crops and forage directly in front of the packer roller. Plus it additionally presses the seed. The field emergence is excellent!

The perfect machine for catch crops.

We use the Apv spreader when planting and sowing our vegetables to apply nitrogen fertilizer directly at planting. This allows us to save between 10 and 20% of fertilizer, because we only apply fertilizer where there are plants.
In late summer autumn, the spreader is then mounted on our cultivator, a Köckerling Trio 300, to sow ZF mixtures and green rye.
Currently, we are considering, for the coming season, for our new hoe to purchase another tax to be able to apply fertilizer while hoeing. Then we can better split the individual gave without having additional passes.
