Cayena Tine Seeder

Amazone Cayena

Amazone Cayena

The Cayena tine coulter seed drill has been designed for high-speed sowing on hard, dry and stony soils with or without prior soil tillage.

With its 6 m working width and 3,600 l hopper capacity, the Cayena can achieve enormous work rates and, as an alternative, the Cayena-C comes with a 4,000 litre, twin tank hopper.

Benefitting from ISOBUS

The Cayena has been certified as UT 2.0 according to the AEF conformity test system. This means that this AMAZONE machine can be operated with any terminal that is on the market which is also certified to UT 2.0.
Needless to say, the Cayena can also be controlled via an ISOBUS compatible Section Control licence from another ISOBUS terminal.
The AMAZONE AMATRON 3, CCI 100 and AMAPAD terminals and all AMAZONE ISOBUS machines support the AEF functionality AUX-N, meaning that, for instance, a function can be individually assigned to any key on an existing AUX-N compatible multi-function joystick. So, that function is located there on the stick, where the farmer wants it to be.

Up to 15 km/h for the highest of daily work rates

The Cayena tine seeder shows its strengths on hard, stony soils and in dry regions, where normal coulters don’t perform. No matter whether used for coarse, medium or fine seeds, for mulch sowing, sowing after the plough or on stubbles – with its 6 m working width the Cayena performs with an enormous efficiency. At working speeds of up to 15 km/h and its 3,600 litre seed hopper, the Cayena offers you the potential for the highest daily Outputs.

Cayena-C – for seed and fertiliser

With the Cayena 6001-C, AMAZONE offers a trailed tine seeder that can also place fertiliser together with the seed into the seed furrow. The 4,000 litre seed hopper is divided in two compartments at a ratio of 60:40 and equipped with two fully electric metering units. Both compartments can, from choice, be filled with either seed or fertiliser. Via the same conveying system, seed and fertiliser are placed together in the seed furrow. In this way, for instance, when sowing winter rape or winter cereals, a starter fertiliser can be applied.
Via the sealed, pressurised tank system of the Cayena-C, the application of higher seed-fertiliser combinations is ensured.

Narrow row spacing, spacious clearance

36 tine coulters and 16.6 cm row spacing – in three rows and arranged in an offset to one another on the main frame. The coulters of the Cayena, despite their narrow spacing, allow the easy passage of crop residues and stones.

Narrow and hard

Thanks to their extremely narrow shape the hard metal armoured coulters of the Cayena easily penetrate the soil and move only a little soil – minimising the loss of soil moisture when sowing. The narrow coulter shape offers additional decisive advantages: The pulling power requirement of the Cayena is low and the wear of the coulters is reduced to a minimum and, in spite of its large working width of 6 metres, the Cayena can be operated with tractors from just 100 kW/136 HP.

Overload and stone safety device

Special rubber spring elements optimise the adaptation of the coulters to the ground contours, even on hard ground. They also act as an overload protection and stone release function and allow the tines to give way in three dimensions. The slight vibration of the tines in work frees the coulters of organic matter, without adversely affecting the placement quality of the seed.

”On grip” tines

The narrow TineTeC coulters of the Cayena are arranged “on grip” and pull themselves automatically into the soil. As the machine is supported via the tractor’s lower links and the wedge ring tyre roller in the rear, the downward pull of the tines is limited. In this way a permanent, even placement depth of the seed, irrespective of the fill level of the seed tank is ensured. The two half-side setting elements allow a central, quick and safe adjustment of the sowing depth.

Air diffuser

When sowing mixtures with heavily-deviating bulk densities/volumes (light seed/heavy fertiliser) the seed flow can be maintained via an air diffuser. The air stream from the blower fan is self-regulating thus preventing the need for readjustment or the blowing out of any lighter material.

Blockage-free – even where large amounts of straw prevail

Following the seed placement the exact harrow S covers the seed furrow with loose soil and levels the soil. The covering intensity of the harrow can be also adjusted centrally.

Exact and targeted: the reconsolidation

The Exact harrow is followed by the AMAZONE wedge ring roller with Matrix tyre profile, consisting of twelve 800 mm diameter tyres. The over-sized wedge ring roller ensures a highly smooth running and, at the same time, serves as integrated running gear for road transport. Thanks to its special profile design, the wedge ring roller consolidates the seed bed in strips, precisely and exactly above the seed sown. In this way an optimum field emergence is achieved, even under dry conditions. Simultaneously loose stones are pressed into the soil meaning that a separate operational pass to roll the seedbed is no longer required. Scrapers on the roller ensure that it is not blocked or smeared, even under highly moist conditions.
As an alternative to the standard air-filled transport tyres, polyurethane-filled tyres are also possible. Filled tyres can possibly require a special operating licence and so please observe your national traffic regulations.

The basic settings

The Cayena is carried via the tractor’s lower links and the wedge ring tyres. Guide wheels, available as an option and mounted in front of the tine coulters, help provide a smooth run, even at high sowing speeds. The sowing depth of the seed is simply adjusted via ratchets and, just as easily, the Exact harrow S is matched to the seed embedding; the drill is then ready to go.

Compact and maneuverable

Thanks to the lower linkage mounting, the integrated chassis and the hydraulically folding wings, the Cayena will impress you with its compactness and yet, at the same time, it is still a highly maneuverable unit with a length of just 6.7 m and a transport width of just 2.9 m. These compact dimensions are of decisive advantage especially in difficult terrain or in transport.
As the seed hopper is mounted towards the front of the Cayena, a proportion of the machine’s weight is carried on the rear axle of the tractor, enormously improving the traction.

Large and slender

The seed hopper of the Cayena has been designed to be as large as possible, and yet, compact. This allows an uncluttered view of the TineTeC coulters in operation. In this way you have everything under control.

Invaluable to you

The interior lighting of the seed hopper is coupled with the headlamps of the tractor. The roll-over cover safely protects against dust and rain.
The complete opening of the seed hopper ensures the simple and quick filling.

Precision metering

You can rely on the proven electric full metering via AMADRILL+ or AMATRON 3 to enable the precise adjustment of the seed rate. You just have to adjust the seed rate on the operator terminal, calibrate the machine and then enter the determined weight into the terminal. Seed rate and operational speed – determined via the impulses of the radar – then determine the driving speed of the metering cassette. In this way, any inaccuracies in seed rate are avoided.
