Precise, Versatile Seeding
The integral leading gauge wheel simulates a walking tandem. It follows uneven terrain while placing seeds at a consistent depth, which is especially important for small seeded crops, like alfalfa.
Fluted-Feed Seed Cups
5200 seed cups feature a fluted feed design. Large flutes allow slower shaft speeds resulting in greater seeding accuracy and gentle seed handling. An adjustable seed gate assures smooth seed flow with large or small seeds controlled by a seed rate adjustment knob on the end of the drill. Smooth plastic seed tubes prevent seed from bunching compared to corrugated rubber seed tubes.
PRO – Precision Residue opener
PRO openers feature a 4” x 12” chevron tread depth gauge wheel or a 3” x 14” crowned depth gauge wheel on no-till drills. The PRO opener design accurately controls seeding depth while resisting plugging. The 13 ½“double disc openers with a 5/8” staggered leading edge cut through residue with ease, ensuring a consistent seed trench.
HR PRO – High-Residue Precision Opener
HD PRO openers utilize a 3” x 14” crowned depth gauge wheel and one 16” notched and one 13 ½” disc for the opener with a 2 ½” staggered leading edge to enable excellent penetration in heavy residue conditions. The HR PRO system has 50% fewer pivot points compared to parallel link style openers while maintaining more accurate depth control.
Wrenchless, Accurate Seed Depth Adjustment
Adjusting the openers is quick, simple, and does not require any wrenches. Depth adjustments can be made in ¼” increments on the PRO opens from ½” to 2 ½” and in 1/8” increments on HR PRO openers from ¼” to 2 ½” seed depth.
Simple Seeding Rate Adjustment
Seeding rates are easily adjusted by pulling the idler lever and sliding sprockets to the desired setting applying form as little as a few to over 300 pounds per acre.
No-Till Coulter Pressure
Cut through thick residue mats with ease on the 5200NT drill by hydraulically transferring up to 3000 pounds of down pressure to the no-till coulters for added penetration in extreme conditions.
Multiple Configuration Options
Spacing Options for any Application
KUHN Krause grain drills offer a wide variety of row spacings to meet the needs of any operation, the conventional or minimum-till drills are available with 6", 7 ½" or 10" spacing; no-till openers are available with 7 ½" or 10" spacing. Openers are also arranged with a 6 ½" stagger for excellent soil and residue flow.
The dry fertilizer option on 5200 folding and 5200NT models with PRO openers includes a stainless steel tank ﬂoor and a 60% grain, 40% fertilizer split. The fertilizer cups are made of the same non-corrosive material as the seed cups providing years of trouble-free operation.
A legume or small seed box is available to enable seeding of multiple crops at the same time, reducing passes across the field and enabling the use of cover crops.
Additional Equipment for the 5200 Grain Drills
Press Wheel Options
Four press wheel options are available: 2" x 13" smooth, 2" x 13" single ribbed, 3" x 13" single ribbed and 3" x 13" doubled ribbed. The 3" x 13" single-ribbed design is our most popular option and works well in a variety of soil conditions.
All 5200 and 5200NT drills are available with an optional a marker arm with shear bolt protection. 3-point mounted drills utilize a 12” smooth marker disc while pull-type models have a 14” notched marker disc.
