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.

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 %.

Hoeing elements with vertical cutting discs and angle knives

The hoeing element consists of two vertical cutting discs followed by two angle knives. The result is a very narrow hoeing strip and the hoeing can be done at a very early stage of the crop growth and very narrow to the crop.

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.

Adjustable weeder tines

Height adjustable weeder tines can be mounted on each hoeing element.

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-TWIN was developed for hoeing exactly above the row. The hoeing parallelogram does not operate in the classic way in between the rows but directly above the row. The result is a very narrow hoeing strip and the hoeing can be done at a very early stage of the crop growth and very narrow to the crop. The hoeing element consists of two vertical cutting discs that are adjustable in angle and distance, and two angle knives following the discs. Two Farmflex wheels running close to the crop row allow a very exact adjusting of the working depth. The CHOPSTAR-TWIN is suited for special crops, grain, soybean, vegetables, etc.
