Shortest connection of sideshift frame and row-crop cultivators
Because of the narrow construction of the Einböck-linear-sideshift frame the centre of gravity remains very closely to the tractor.
This construction offers the following advantages:

  • reduced axle load on the tractor and therefore reduced soil compaction
  • the wider the construction of the sideshift frame, the higher the load on the rear axle and the lifting power requirement of the tractor increases
  • the extremely narrow construction of the Row-Guard moves the centre of gravity only 20 cm to the rear.
  • Machines with parallelogram shifting extend the position of row-crop cultivator up to 80 cm and more to the rear.
  • especially when fields are not straight or in hilly conditions the short construction is a big advantage

One sideshift frame = several row-crop cultivators
Simple and quick coupling and uncoupling of the Einböck sideshift frame allows to use different row-crop cultivators with only one sideshift frame.

Preconditions for the use of the ROW-GUARD camera steering system

 

Tractor linkage:

  • Linkage cat. II (for version SR and SRHD Cat. III)
  • Fix lower linkage (working side bars!)

 

Hydraulic:

  • 1 single acting hydraulic valve with permanent oil-flow and pressure-free return line
  • For a pressure-free return line a ¾ “ quick lock valve on the tractor is needed
  • For the side-shift of the frame a constant oil flow of only about 15‑20 l/min is needed – tractors with higher capacity should have the possibility to limit the oil flow to this amount!
  • It would be advantageous if the linkage can act independently of the hydraulic control valves (important when lifting and centring of the machine at the end of the field)

 

Electric:

  • 3-pin constant electric socket (12 V)

Reliable plant recognition of different row-crops
The system can be used in various crops with the following color modes: green/blue, green/yellow and red
from row spacing 12,5 cm and applicable from a plant size of 1cm (depending on the crop)

Flexible possibilities to adjust the camera

  • number of rows 1-5
  • row distance up to 1,5 m
  • quickly adjustable to different crop dimensions

Best visibility - even in fields with heavy weed infestation and small crop
The software recognizes the plant rows even in case of heavy weed infestations and/or small plants. The settings can be adjusted easily on the conditions.

Stable position of the sideshift-frame
Stabilising wheels made from rubber or metal gauge wheels (e.g. hilly conditions) help to guide the hoe precisely along the row. They are standard equipment. It is easy to adapt them to differnt tractor track width.

Row-Guard Hotline
In case the operator needs help to correctly set the machine, a trilingual 24h phone-hotline is available during the season of hoeing. Its number can be found in the operating instructions.

Concept of row crop cultivators

The concept of the row hoes is its variability and the many possibilities of individual tools for various crops. The same strong and solid frame is used for all row hoes. Almost any row hoe can also be equipped with the automatic camera steering system ROW-GUARD.

The photos and images show possible variants and some special versions. The factual machine configuration may differ from these illustrations.

  • Precision guiding system
  • Even at high working speeds
  • Easy, user-friendly interface
  • Large field of view over several rows
  • Increased working precision
  • Efficient weed control

The ROW-GUARD camera steering system guides hoes precisely, even in high speed. Via a control unit in the tractor cabin the precision guidance system can be adjusted comfortably. The picture captured by the camera is being analyzed on spots with a high concentration of green pixel. With help of the available information about row configuration of the crop (row spacing, number of rows, etc.) a raster is put on top of the picture. This data builds the basis for the information provided to the offset frame which guides the hoe exactly in between the rows.
