Advantages of hoeing
Beside the positive effect for the crop (water saving, weed control, breaking of crusts, soil aeration, ...) hoeing has many additional advantages for the soil (nutrient-mobilization, disruption of capillary action, protection against erosion, fertilizer application,...) and for the environment. So you can reduce or eliminate the expenditure of herbicide- and active ingredients, further stretch of water and also species richness are protected and soil fertility is increased.

Detail Description:

Strong frame for high loads
Rigid or hydraulically folding machines have a strong frame, on which the parallelograms are mounted. The special Einböck-profile-frame allows a fast and simple assembly of the parallelograms. Because of the special frame-form the frame can stand a very high number of hoeing seasons without any problems. Furthermore, the row spacing can be adjusted quickly and infinitely variable.

  2. Frame for a rear-mounted rigid machine with upper-link-steering
  3. Frame for a front-mounted machine, hydraulic folding
  4. Frame for a rear-mounted machine, hydraulic folding with upper-link steering
  5. Frame for a rear-mounted machine, with double folding for reduced transport width for large machines

Section-Control - hydr. lifting of sections
Hydraulic lifting of the parallelogram up to 35 cm above the ground (depending on the machine configuration) controlled with GPS-signal or via illuminated pressure switch bar.

Even when working in shapeless fields there is no damage on the crop at the headlands. This option is particularly recommended for contractors or farms with a lot of fields with irregular form.

Long parallelogramms with retraction support
The wide parallelogramms are equipped with retraction support and durable Farmflex feeler wheels. Furthermore they can be adjusted in the joints, this guarantees a high (side)stability and accuracy after many years of use. The long parallelogramms provide enough space to compensate unevenness of the fields on each element, on hills or pans. The retraction support, which you can adjust in three steps guarantees a better penetration of the hoeing tools, also in hard crusted soils. This allows to work with increased working speed without vibration or jumping of the elements.

Adjustable hilling discs
The hoe section of the HILLSTAR is equipped with big, cancave discs so the soil can be pushed up in hill crops. For different hill shapes the discs can be adjusted in angle and height. The S-tine with duckfoot-sweep breaks the soil in front of the disc to get enough lose soil for maintaining the hills.

Hydraulic upper-link steering support
The effect of the upper-link steering can be increased hydraulically. At the headland the cylinder always has to be switched to the other direction. It is recommended for slopes over 6 %.

Continuously variable adjustment of the working depth
The working depth of the hoeing section is continuously variable adjustable with a spindle on the depth control wheel. So the working depth of the hoeing tool can be adjusted to the millimetre and it is perfectly maintained during operation. A scale shows the actual adjustment. Each parallelogramm should be adjusted individually, because e.g. the tracks behind the tractor wheels should be hoed deeper in order to break them up.

Automatic upper link steering
Rear-mounted row-crop cultivators come standard with an automatic upper link steering system. This ensures exact hoeing, also on hills and bends. Even hoeing in hills with up to 6 % inclination is possible. The row-crop cultivator is guided exactly behind the tractor, even if there are a lot of bends. The cultivator is steered via the upper link of the 3-point hitch by metal gauge-wheels, therefore the machine is used with position control on the 3-point linkage and freely swinging lower links (approx. 7 cm each side).

Gauge-wheels on machines with upper link steering
The high-gauge wheels provide an optimal guidance of the row-crop cultivator, as well as stability in hilly conditions. The weight of the cultivator is carried by the gauge wheels, therefore traction on the front wheels of the tractor is not affected by the heavy weight of the cultivator. Especially on slopes, the high-gauge wheels prevent the machine from drifting downwards. Cleaners ensure that the high gauge-wheels do not pull out too much soil.

High frame clearance
A frame clearance up to 70 cm makes working in bigger crops like maize, sunflowers, etc. possible. So efficient and careful hoeing / ridging up in late growth stage does not cause any problem.

Further tailor-made solutions
For our hoes there are a lot of additional options available. Depending on row distance or other options they might not be available or could not be combined with each other. In addition, there are more options available which are not mentioned here. When you let us know details of your request, we can check the possibility to fulfil your request. To be able to do so, we always need a filled in CHOPSTAR-CHECKLIST.


Additional options like following weeder tines, section-control element lifting, camera steering system, hilling tools, etc.
Many sophisticated additional options make every Einböck row crop cultivator an individually adaptable machine. So every cultivator is designed to perfectly meet current conditions, crops or types of soil. You can find all various possibilities under "Options".

Manual hydraulic steering
In order to increase the precision of a row crop cultivator without camera steering or to reduce the width of the hoeing belt, a manual hydraulic steering is optionally available. This accessory allows a person to steer the row crop cultivator independently from the tractor. The seat is positioned so that the best view on the crop row is guaranteed. The steering is hydraulically operated, so that even longer hoeing operations can be done. The hydraulic steering is not or only partially usable on machines with fingerweeders and hydraulic lifting of the parallelograms.

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.

HILLSTAR

  • Ridger with concavediscs
  • Perfect mechanical weeding
  • Increased aeration
  • Disruption of capillary action
  • Discs adjustable in the angle
  • Ridger for hill-crops

The HILLSTAR is a ridger for hill-crops with large, concave discs. These machines are used to push soil up in hill-crops. A pre-loosening tine breaks up the soil and the inclined discs transport the earth, pulled down by erosion, up the hill again.

Due to the large smooth discs no hair roots of the crop close to the surface are harmed. The discs have high quality, maintenance free bearings and can be ideally adjusted in the angle. The optional guided hill-weeder (3 sections) additionally fights weeds.
