Concept of row crop cultivators

The concept of the CHOPSTAR 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.

Strong frames for high loads
The frame, on which the parallelograms are mounted, is available in a rigid or a hydraulic folding version. The special profile-frame allows mounting of the parallelograms through a single clamp lever.

3. Frame for a rear-mounted machine with double folding frame (4 hinge points) for reduced transport width for large machines

Hydraulic upper link steering

The action 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 %.

Hoe section with discs
The hoe section of the HILLSTAR has big, concave discs that guarantee a perfect maintenance of hills in ridge crops.

Variable adjustment of working depth
The working depth of the hoe element can be adjusted through the spindle of the Farmflex feeler wheel. The tension spring and the adjustment bracket control the downforce of the parallelogram.

Automatic upper-link steering
Depending on the number of rows, rear- mounted machines are equipped with an automatic upper-link steering system. It allows operation on slopes up to 6 %. In turns or contour strips the cultivator will follow exactly the tractor. The steering is done via high gauge-wheels so there is no need for the tractor to carry the machine. It is operated with activated automatic hitch control and freely movable lower links (approx. 7 cm / 3“ each side). This ensures that the front wheels of the tractor retain full traction, which gives a better maneuverability, especially in hilly terrain.

High-gauge wheels

High-gauge wheels provide an optimal guidance of the row crop cultivator (rear mount machines only). The weight of the cultivator is carried by the gauge wheels, therefore traction of the front wheels is not effected.

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.
