MAW02 - Sowing System
Precise seed placement, increased trash flow, perfect packing pressure and a longlife are the hallmarks of the newest Knuckey sowing system. Over 20 years of experience manufacturing sowing systems has culminated in the MAW02. The primary tyne set forward of the main frame increasing the distance between it and the sowing tyne is a feature not found on any other system. This allows for the soil flowing around the front tyne to have stopped moving before the sowing tyne comes through to remove some tilth and place the seed at the exact depth you require. This increased distance also allows the system to work in far heavier trash loads with the residue flowing freely through as it eliminates problematic pinch points. The increased distance also allows the primary tyne to breakout to its full travel, completely independent of the sowing tyne, resulting in more consistent seed placement and dramatically less wear to the parallelogram pivot points when working in harsher country where the primary tyne may break out more frequently. Seed placement is governed by the large 450mm diameter press wheel (less rotations than smaller options) and fitted with maintenance free hubs. Hydraulic breakout, packing pressure and seed depth are all simply adjusted to your specific requirements. Read below to learn more about the features of the MAW02.
Superior Trash Flow
Contour Following and Breakout System
Patent Pending Rubber Dampener System
The patent pending Rubber Dampening Systems is another critical feature for our tough Australian conditions. This system allows the sowing tyne to breakout when it contacts objects such as rocks etc.
