The Optima RS frame has been designed for farmers and contractors looking for a solid and easy solution with high efficiency.
The Optima RS frame is available in working width from 6.1m to 9.3m. In order to offer maximum flexibility, the Optima RS frame can be adjusted to different row widths, starting from 35cm to 80cm in even and uneven configurations. It can be equipped with the full range of Kverneland sowing units: Optima HD-II, the Optima SX high speed sowing unit, the standard or the tandem sowing unit. The solid and strong frame made of an 180mm x 180mm square tube is ready to carry up to 18 HD-II or SX sowing units.
The Optima RS frame can be fitted with a large 2000l fertiliser hopper or alternatively with DF1/DF2 front hopper for a good weight distribution. In addition, the electric-driven micro-granule applicator is available for up to 18 rows.
For safe road transport, a strong lengthwise transport device is available. The machine complies with the new EU Type approval and is ready for transport at 40 km/h even with 18 rows and fertiliser. This is due to the pneumatic brake system.

Micro-drill for Optima HD-II and SX sowing units
The demand for microgranule applicators is increasing. Micro nutrients and also small amounts of insecticides or fungicides ensure the best start of the crop.
The electric driven micro-drills for the Optima HD-II and SX sowing units have been designed as backpack behind the sowing units and offer a hopper capacity of 17 liters.
They are electrically driven and ISOBUS controlled. The metering device consists of a wear-resistant plastic housing with exchangeable cell wheels made of stainless steel. This ensures the precise metering of the micro granules.
The engineers had focus on highest level of operator’s safety by offering easy and safe handling of the applicator. Therefore, the operator can exchange the cell wheels even when the hoppers are full of micro granule. There is no need to empty them first, reducing the operator’s risk of getting in direct contact with the granules.
A plus for the environment
The micro granules fall freely into the seed furrow without any air support, minimising the emission of dust. Therefore, the new micro-drill fully complies with the current guidelines for emission control of any granules applied.
The comfortable, fully ISOBUS integrated control system allows the adaption to the stop and starting points of the seed row. This ensures precise shutting on and off at the end of the field and in tramlines (without overlaps or faults).
IsoMatch GEOCONTROL - Cost saving with immediate payback
Seeding with GPS and GEOCONTROL in combination with an electric driven precision drill is a major step towards precision and cost saving. These machines are all equipped with ISOBUS technology which with the help of the IsoMatch Tellus terminal, can be easily controlled.
Each electric driven seeding element, in combination with GPS and GEOCONTROL, is automatically switched on or off in exactly the right place, ensuring there is no overlap with any row that has already been seeded. This is especially handy in triangular fields, on curved or irregular shaped headlands.
GEOSEED - Precision at high end
GEOSEED is offered in two different levels:
GEOSEED Level 1 is the synchronization in the machines working width. This improves the distribution of seeds up to perfection in parallel or diamond pattern: Positive effects are the best use of nutrients, water and sun. Also the wind and water erosion is decreased.
GEOSEED Level 2 is the synchronization in the whole field. This is the necessary requirement for interrow cultivation, also across the seeding direction. GEOSEED is the only system in the world, that makes this mechanic weeds control possible!
