The new Horsch Express 3 KR power harrow and drill combination will be unveiled this week. The 3m, mounted machine features the proven drill components of Horsch's renowned Pronto model integrated with a powerful 10-disc Kredo rotary harrow. The machine is ideal for intensive seedbed preparation even in very difficult and stony soil conditions.

The Express KR features hydraulic rams to control working and sowing depth allowing it to be easily adjusted from the tractor cab. The frame of the Express KR is designed in such a way that the working depth of the rotary harrow does not influence the sowing depth.

Built with Pronto's drill technology, the Express KR uses the TurboDisc 2 seed coulters to precisely follow the soil surface for consistent seed depth.

Four rubber dampers per coulter transfer a coulter pressure of up to 120 kg and guarantee a smooth coulter control even at high speeds.

The TurboDisc seed coulters can be lifted completely on the hydraulic rams allowing the Kredo rotary harrow to work on its own or even uncoupled completely from the drill via four fixing points.

The compact and stable design sees the 1500 litre seed hopper located close to the tractor enabling tractors from 150hp to handle the machine with ease. A number of packer options are available. Machines will be available in 3m, 3.5m and 4m versions to go along with the Pronto 6 KR.
