Matrix principle – the patented recipe for success

At the heart of the machine, and the guarantee of a uniform, quick field emergence, are the Matrix tyres. With dimensions of 400/55R17.5, these tyres feature a diameter of 880 mm and a width of 410 mm (wide enough for 4 seed rows at 12.5 cm spacing or 3 seed rows at 16.6 cm). 

The combination of the big diameter, together with the profile, provides an easy rolling effect – and thus a reduced pulling power. This is a characteristic which is, above all, very important for trailed seed drills that are equipped with passive soil tillage tools and driven at fast forward speeds.

Matrix tyres – strip-wise reconsolidation for optimum growth conditions

The core purpose of the Matrix tyres is reconsolidation in strips. The heterogeneous soil conditions created by the tyres provide optimal growth conditions for all plants under all conditions.

Due to the radial design, with its higher deflection ability, the profile has a true soil contact across all the rows creating perfectly even growing conditions. Ridge levellers in between the rows, which are available as an option, provide an even operational performance and make sense especially on light soils.

2. Self-driving effect

Advantages of the Matrix tyres:

  • Powerful, smooth self-driving effect
  • Reconsolidation in strips
  • Creation of a heterogeneous soil structure for optimal growth conditions
  • More fine soil for covering the seed
  • Very good self-cleaning of the tyres
  • Optimised for fast road transport

For the best results – Reconsolidation in strips

Due to the reconsolidation in strips, it is possible to create optimum soil conditions which match to the current weather conditions and thus ensures the precondition for quick and even plant growth. In addition, uniform, well reconsolidated strips without a cleat imprint are left. In comparison to rollers with an all-over profile, this is a decisive advantage which, above all, has an effect on the smooth running of the sowing coulters.

2. Row spacing 12.5 cm (Plants at a row spacing of 16.6 cm)

AS cross-ply tyre – with minor compromises

As an alternative for regions which are less sensitive to germination conditions, the Cirrus can also be equipped with a simple AS cross-ply tyre of a similar dimension (15.0/55-17). The self-driving effect from its short cleats is very good and thus the machine is also easy to pull. Targeted reconsolidation requires compromises: The AS tyres provide an inferior soil contact compared with the Matrix tyres, especially in dry years.

1. In severe drought – principle of a water pump:
The re-consolidated strips provide soil contact directly in the seed furrow. In this way, capillary water reaches the seedling even in dry weather. The re-consolidation in strips ensures that your soil woks as a water pump. Every drop counts!

2. In much wetness – principle of drainage:
The loose soil absorbs any rain well and stores it. Rain from heavy downpours simply drains into the unrolled, loose areas. Soil erosion is thereby prevented. In this case, your soil works like a drain. Even at heavy, wet soils there is enough loose soil available between the rows to cover the seed with loose soil.

3. Gaseous exchange – the lungs principle:
The loose soil also enables gases to be exchanged, so that the roots can breathe.
