Effective also in a late growth stage

An effective use of the machine is also possible in a late growth stage, because the rotating wheel does not push down any plants but releases them. The inclined star wheels also have a better effect in the rows.

  • Rotation-weeding-element instead of normal tines for working in the center of the machine (recommended for heavy residues)
  • Control valve: combines 2 double acting hydraulic connections to 1 (for machines with shear retraction)
  • For machines with shear-retraction working in light and sandy soils we recommend:
    Inside twin wheels 18x8.50-8
    Outside single wheels 18x8.50-8
  • Warning signs with holder and lights

6.5 mm / 0.26“ thick spring steel tines – diameter 50 cm / 9.7“

6.5 mm / 0.26“ thick spring steel tines casted into an inclined plastic disc do the job. Each of these 50 cm / 9.7“ big star wheels is suspended separately, therefore they adapt perfectly to any surface irregularities. In order to prevent the tines from falling out, they are casted in an u-form into the disc.

pressure on the rotating star wheels can be hydraulically reduced

When working in sensitive crops and light soils the pressure on the rotating star wheels can be hydraulically
reduced, until absolutely no pressure is left anymore and the star wheels are floating. When down-pressure is
minimized, the soil has to be very even for optimum performance.

The discs are mounted at a line distance of 15 cm / 5.9“ on sections of 1.50 m / 4.9 ft. Even at low working speed, as often required for sensitive crops, the AEROSTAR-ROTATION works effectively

Low working speed – high working effect

Because of the special position of the rotating star wheels, the AEROSTAR-ROTATION has a very good effect also with lower working speeds of about 2-3 km/h - 1.3-1.7 mph.

bi-directional angle

The bi-directional angle of the inclined mounted star wheels prevents a possible side pull.

Standard weeder tines are used in the center. As an option there is a star-wheel-element available.

Comfortably and infinitely variable adjustable

The pressure is comfortably and infinitely variable adjustable from the tractor´s seat. This innovative system uses the power of two counteracting tension springs. By extending the hydraulic cylinder, the tension of the preload spring increases. The pressure on the star wheels increases as well. When retracting the cylinder, the relieving spring is tensioned. If desired the pressure on the star wheels can be reduced, until absolutely no down pressure is left (the star wheels are nearly floating).

Compact shear retraction

Compact shear retraction is for machines over 9.00 m / 29.5 ft and 12.00 m / 39.4 ft. The transport width is always only 3 m / 9.8 ft.

The AEROSTAR-ROTATION combines the advantages of a tined weeder and a rotary hoe. The result is a rotative weeder with high flexibility in use. Steel tines, casted into an inclined plastic disc do the job. Rotating working tools unroot or cover weeds, encourage tillering and crack even hard soil crusts without any problems. This machine is also very well suited for higher residue conditions and slightly moisture soil. The hydraulic pressure adjustment allows anything from full pressure on the star wheels to no pressure. No pressure allows the wheels to float. Therefore the machine is perfectly suited for difficult soil conditions and sensitive special crops.
