Karat 12 awarded Machine of the year 2017

At the SIMA in Paris from 26.02.-02.03.2017, LEMKEN presented in addition to the regular product range, for the first time their latest innovations, the pneumatic seed drill Solitair 25, the precision seed drill Azurit and the cultivator Karat 12 to the French public.

One of the highlights of the fair was the "Machine of the Year" award.

In the category soil cultivation, the Karat 12 from LEMKEN received the coveted price of the 23 journalists from 18 specialist publications from all over Europe. They saw the decisive advantage in the new possibility of shallow and up to 30 cm deep ploughless soil cultivation in heavy soils. The quick-change system providing an easy tine exchange to achieve the desired working depth was a crucial factor.

LEMKEN CEO Anthony van der Ley, Head of Engineering Klemens Surmann and the managing director of LEMKEN France, Jean-Christophe Regnier where happy to accept the price at the award ceremony.
