AMIA Ltd are launching their new range of arable machinery which they are exclusively distributing from the Italian manufacturer SFOGGIA at LAMMA 2015. Taking pride of place on the stand is going to be the revolutionary precision planter ‘Elektra’. It has an electric motor and a touch screen control unit which allows you to set the planter directly from the tractor cab guaranteeing a superior level of performance with all the manual operations simplified with just a “touch”. Finally the operator can easily set and monitor the whole sowing process including the pre-loading of seeds, correct distribution of seeds, of fertilizer and geo-disinfectants or disconnection of sowing line, through a Touch Screen in the cab connected to the electric motors brushes on the planting units. It provides maximum comfort where now the operator does not need to get out from the cab to setup the Planter. It is easy to use as you can record the data and re-use it in future using the Elektra touch screen control unit. It reduces all manual operations and guarantying an excellent sowing precision even at 15km/h, farmers optimize Time. There are no chains to be adjusted so it is low maintenance. ELEKTRA is a mix of technology and simplicity.

The Calibra vacuum precision planter for planting vegetables and sugar-beet is also being launched as well as the Kappa SF3000 mechanical seed drill.

The Calibra vacuum precision planter for planting vegetables and sugar-beet can be used in greenhouses and in open fields. With its new concept and new design it meets the different needs of vegetable farmers. The new technical details of the CALIBRA include the sowing unit which can plant 1 – 2 or 3 lines at the same time (single line – double line “Twin” – triple line “Tris”). For that it’s enough to replace the sowing plate and the shoe. CALIBRA has 2 fans, one for the pressure and 1 for the vacuum, which allows the best precision and avoids humidity inside the sowing bodies as a compressor would bring. The second important technical point is the sowing disc which is the biggest in the market. Applications for the CALIBRA include the planting of all fine vegetable seeds up to sugar beet.

The Kappa SF3000 mechanical seed drill is a result of SFOGGIA’s long experience of manufacturing mechanical seed drills and their continuous innovation research. It is surely a vanguard product in the sowing of cereals, rape, lucerne, etc. It’s compact, extremely easy to handle even with low powers and perfect in the distribution; choice between five models of coulter: Shoe, Straight, Curved, Single disk and Double “V” shaped disk. The KAPPA range is available in 3 different versions including the Kappa SF3000 with its double teeth roller distributors of plastic and fertiliser system

Available in 8 – 10 and 12 wheel sizes, the BATRAKE comes in either Double Wheel or Single Wheel configurations. The heavy 7mm spring tines provide for excellent wear and strong resistance to breakage. The heavy frame and high profile of the BATRAKE give a full 32” of ground clearance allowing it to rake in all types of ground contours in heavy hay conditions. The BATRAKE’s unique lifting system gives you the ability to only partially raise the rakes when coming to the end of the field, rather than into the full transport position. A single hydraulic hose allows it to be used on older tractors with limited hydraulic remotes. Go from a V rake configuration to single side without leaving the tractor seat.
This machine offers unbeatable value combined with excellent performance. There are no issues with ‘roping’ of grass due to Enorossi’s patented design features. It offers unrivalled low maintenance as well as proven by its performance on a number of farms across the UK and Ireland this year.
