PS 500 M2

The PS 500 M2 is an excellent implement for farmers with large surfaces as well as for contractors. The seeder is ideal for combined use on different soil tillage implements. A standard installed fill level sensor (for use with control box 1.2 & 5.2 & 6.2) issues a timely alert signalling an empty hopper.

Functional Principle

The seeds are fed from the seed hopper via the electrically controlled seeding shaft into the air duct. The seeds are conveyed by air support through plastic hoses to the dispersion plates, and then evenly distributed close to the soil. This enables precise seeding even in windy conditions!


  • Exact lateral distribution throughout the working width
  • Precise spreading of seed, irrespective of wind


  • Multiple options to adjust the PS to your needs, due to a wide selection of seeding shafts, types of fan, outlets, etc.
  • Mounting option on almost all soil tillage implements, seeders and culture maintenance implements - irrespective of manufacturer


  • Speed-adjusted seed rate spreading & headland management with sensors1 (optional)

1 For use with the Control Box 5.2 & 6.2

APV Anwenderbericht für Pneumatisches Sägerät PS 500 M2
Mr. Esser recommends APV PS 500 M2

Main company focus: Cultivation

We use the Apv spreader when planting and sowing our vegetables to apply nitrogen fertilizer directly at planting. This allows us to save between 10 and 20% of fertilizer, because we only apply fertilizer where there are plants.

In late summer autumn, the spreader is then mounted on our cultivator, a Köckerling Trio 300, to sow ZF mixtures and green rye.

Currently, we are considering, for the coming season, for our new hoe to purchase another tax to be able to apply fertilizer while hoeing. Then we can better split the individual gave without having additional passes.

Mr Koch reports about the PS 500 M1

"I mainly use the spreader for seeding on the grassland, but also for seeding catch crops in autumn. This year we try to seed oats in our bean stock, because the beans are drilled deeper with the machine and the oats are only seeded flat."
