The Universal drill Ultima CS produced by Köckerling is known for high performance in all conditions. For many years the Ultima CS drill has been used by professional farmers sowing cereals, rape, beans, peasor maize. Excellent yields and low operating costs make this drill suitable over all. The Ultima is a compact, high output drill with working widths of 3.00 m, 4.00 m and 6.00 m.
Optium row spacing
The seed is placed in 60 mm rows. Band spacing is 175 - 180 mm depending on model. The seed spacing allows each plant its own space and nutrition leading to a healthier plant. The point pressure of more than 200kg produces a constant sowing depth. This is particularly important whether sowing shallow to rape or deep beans and peas.
Sowing depth adjustment
The single acting hydraulic ram on the sowing element gives sowing depth adjustment while at the same time acting as a shock absorber against stones. The hydraulic cylinders protect the drill frame eliminating bounce even at high drilling speeds. The picture shows the hydraulic in shallow and deep work.

STS Roller and following harrow
The practical STS roller is now used on most cultivators and drills made by Köckerling. The stability at the rear of the drill is guaranteed by the STS roller. The open "U"profile of the steel ring fills with soil and the friction between the soil in the ring and the soil in the field keeps the roller turning. The"soil to soil" contact allows the STS roller to keep working in wet conditions. The "U"ring spacing coincides with the spring tine positions and the packer effect of each ring on the sown seed improves germination. The spring loaded following harrow gives a further levelling and seed covering.
2800/3300 litre Seed Hopper
The seed tank has a volume of 2800 ltr (Ultima CS 300 and CS 400) or 3300 ltr (Ultima CS 600). The large dimensioned pneumatic metering mechanism works precisely even at high working speeds. The fan is driven by a hydraulic PTO pump. Standard equipment is speed monitor, tramlines, hectare meter and tank level indicator.
