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.

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.

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. Parallelogramm with Farmflex feeler wheels (standard)
  2. Parallelogramm with metal gauge wheel (optional)

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.

Hybrid-hoeing element with horizontal discs
A horizontal disc works the complete area between the rows, so all roots of the weeds are cut. The disc carrier is mounted on the parallelogramm so the disc can rotate freely. Therefore the possibility of clogging is reduced to a minimum as the section cleans itself before organic material can build up too much. Against overload the section is protected by a shearbolt. Optionally the element can be equipped with a steerable metal gauge wheel instead of the Farmflex-wheel, what has a very big advantage. Organic matter is cut in front of the holder of the horizontal disc in order to reduce the risk of clogging even more. The hybrid hoeing section is available for rows up to 50 cm.

The spring-loaded holder ensures the fingers will perfectly enter the ground. This is very important so that they can work ideally even on encrusted or uneven fields. There are three different versions of the hardness of the finger weeders, depending on the crop and soil conditions.

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.

A parallel arrangement of the 2 stars, as well as a separate holder per row for the fingerweeders are important for an exact operation.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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 %.

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.


 

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.

The CHOPSTAR-HYBRID inter-row crop cultivator with horizontal discs is the perfect solution for hoeing in mulch-till. Based on the proven CHOPSTAR hoeing frame there are ­ at discs mounted to the hoeing section that can rotate freely. The diameter is adapted to the desired row spacing. These discs cut through the soil just below the surface. They harm the roots of the weeds respectively hoe the weed just below the soil surface and below the mulch layer. High-gauge wheels are mounted in front of the discs. They cut the soil and the mulch layer vertically to guarantee a smooth operation without any clogging.

It is also the first choice for hoeing in special crops, in vegetables and in crops with a lot of green mass because it operates below the leaves and doesn´t harm the crop. The ­ at discs and the cutting high-gauge wheels prevent a clogging also in fields with a high amount of weed, as it could happen with conventional tines. This guarantees a perfect hoeing result.
