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, 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.

Section-Control – hydraulic lifting sections
The hydraulic parallelogram lift has up to 35 cm / 13.80" lift height (depending on machine configuration and soil conditions) and is controllable by GPS or pressure switch.
Even with misshapen areas, nothing is hoed out at the headland. This option is especially recommended for contractors or farms with a lot of misshapen areas.
Hydraulic lifting is also possible for finger hoes.

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 even after many years of use.

  1. The parallelogramm is fixed with a clamping lever to the frame
  2. Parallelogramm for front-mounted machines
  3. Parallelogramm for rear-mounted machines

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.

Finger weeders
The finger weeders work in between the plants in the crop row. There is no need to adjust them in angle to each other, as they anyway bend up parallel to the ground when they are adjusted correctly. For front-mounted hoes additional support wheels are required.

Individual equipment of hoeing elements
The hoe element for a row distance of up to 150 cm is equipped with up to 10 tines per element. These elements are designed e.g. to hoe pumpkins. Crop deflector shields are responsible to protect the plants from spilling (especially in early crop stage). You can find the different options and the different tines in "Technical data" or in "Options". This big range of different hoeing tools make the CHOPSTAR a row crop cultivator, which can be adapted to each condition, crop or type of soil.

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.

Finger weeders for double folding frame
To keep the transport width for machines with double folding frame as narrow as possible, there are special holders for the fingerweeders available. Like all Einböck fingerweeders, they have a separate holder on which a parallelogram is mounted that guides the stars left and right of the plant row. In this way, despite the different design, they achieve the same perfect results as the standard holder of the fingerweeder.

High penetration force of hoeing elements
All Einböck row-crop cultivator parallelograms are fitted with three-step adjustable retraction spring as standard. This allows a penetration pressure of up to 105 kg on each hoeing element (depending on the equipment, working position and spring preload). These adjustable springs ensure a smooth running of the hoeing elements even at high working speeds and safe penetration even into hard and crusted soils.

Design of the finger weeders
The finger weeders, which are available as additional option, are used to break up the unworked hoeing belt (area very close to and between the crop plants) and to control weeds in early growth stage. The two stars of the fingerweeder are placed parallel on both sides of the row and they are mounted on a separate, spring loaded holder. This ensures excellent adaption to the soil and perfect guidance of the fingerweeder - without damaging the crop and especially the roots.

Rotative weeder element
Similar to the fingerweeder the rotative weeder element works the unworked hoeing-strip close to / in the row. The rotating stars "comb" weeds out of the row. The trailed-rotative weeder is used in mulch-till and fields with organic matter, because it works without clogging. The holder on which the rotative weed element is mounted is the same as the one of the fingerweeder. Therefore both options can be exchanged easily.

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).

Wide range of different widths of duckfoot sweeps for the Vibro-tines
The flat position of the sweeps which can be mounted on the Vibro-tines enable the machine to cut the full surface between the rows in a shallow working depth, which is important for effective weed control. According to the row distance, crop and consistency of the soil the vibro-tines with 32x12 mm can be equipped with duckfoot sweeps in the widths of 80 up to 300 mm. To change the working depth easily the holders are equipped with slotted groves. The duckfoot sweeps are mounted with screws to the holders, which ensure a secure mounting, but nevertheless they can be changed quickly.

Gauge wheels on implements with upper link steering
The gauge wheels ensure perfect guidance of the hoe and stability at hilly conditions. The tractor's front wheels are not relieved of load, as the weight of the machine is carried by the gauge wheels. Especially on hilly conditions, the gauge wheels help prevent the implement from drifting. Scrapers ensure that the gauge wheels do not become clogged.

Pushed sections on front mounted machine
The front-mounted row crop cultivator can be used without an extra front mounting support as the elements are strong enough to be operated in pushed position. This results in the row crop cultivator being mounted very closely to the tractor, which has following advantages:

  • Less side pull when working in hills
  • More exact adaption of each separate element because the Farmflex-wheels are running in front of the element 
  • Reduced weight to reduce soil compaction
  • Short distance between cultiavator and front axle, therefore higher precision in steering
  • Advantage when driving bends during operation, as well as road transport
  • Better visual control during operation and also road transport

There is a front mounting support available as an option in case needed (e.g. for ROLLSTAR row crop cultivators).

Heaping shares for vibro tines
Heaping shares are used for hilling up the plant rows in late crop stage (e.g. last use with soya). This strengthens the crop plant (and root) and buries weeds in the row.

Arrangement of the hoeing elements - Retraction support of the parallelogram
With the tine hoeing elements (e.g. beet, soy, field bean, corn, etc.) from 30 cm / 11.80" row spacing, the hoeing element is placed "under" the elongated parallelogram. It´s advantage is that the hoeing elements and tines are pulled in better even in soils with heavy crusts and hard soils. Due to the long parallelogram, less pressure is needed to push in the tines as if the hoeing elements would be placed "behind" the parallelogram. In addition, an adjustable retraction spring guarantees that the hoeing element gets pushed into the soil and maintains the set working depth.

Adjustable weeder tines
Adjustable weeder tines can be mounted for pulling weeds to the surface and ensure they dry out. They clean the roots of the weeds from soil and at the same time they slightly level the cultivated ares. The outer tines on the element can be exchanged to direct the earth flow either to or away from the crop row (principle of torsion hoe). This also enables a slight hilling effect.

Upper link steering
An automatic upper link steering system is mounted as standard on rear-mounted hoeing machines. This ensures precise hoeing even on hilly conditions and curves. Hoeing on hills with an incline of up to 6% is possible. Even in curves, the row-crop cultivator runs as close as possible behind the tractor track. Steering is done via gauge wheels. The implement does not need to be carried by the tractor. It is therefore used with position control and swinging lower links (approx. 7 cm / 2,80" each side). With the CHOPSTAR-TWIN, a ROW-GUARD sideshift frame with camera steering or hydraulic steering control is recommended so that the narrowest possible hoeing band can be achieved.

Upper link steering
An automatic upper link steering system is mounted as standard on rear-mounted hoeing machines. This ensures precise hoeing even on hilly conditions and curves. Hoeing on hills with an incline of up to 6% is possible. Even in curves, the row-crop cultivator runs as close as possible behind the tractor track. Steering is done via gauge wheels.

Bolted or clamped mounting of the working tools
All working tools are bolted or clamped to the frame. 
This has the following advantages for the user: 

  • Always a tight fit (no getting lose) of the working tools, especially during working on the field
  • Set distances or working depth are precisely maintained 
  • No deflection of the connections and minimal wear and tear
  • Durable fixings/clamps withstand many hoeing seasons
  • Fixing of the tools without clearance what results e.g. in exact guidance of the sweeps
  • Allows very precise, infinitely variable adjustment

Set of wrenches
A set of wrenches, suitable for the screws which are mounted on the row crop cultivator, are included in the standard delivery. So the few bolted holders can be adjusted easily. Bolted tine-holders, as well as holders for fingerweeders, guarantee exact adjustment and precise hoeing.

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.
