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.

  • Frame-profile extension
  • Asymetric arrangement of parallelograms
  • Crop deflector discs or crop deflector shields (can also be used for mounting of an additional Vibrotine)
  • Metal gauge wheels instead of Farmflex-wheel
  • Upper link Cat. III for rear mount machines with upper-link steering                                        

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.

Finger weeders

The finger weeders work in between the plants in the crop row. For the front version additional support wheels are required.

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 %.

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.

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.
