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.

  2. Frame for a rear-mounted rigid machine with upper-link-steering
  3. Frame for a front-mounted machine, hydraulic folding
  4. Frame for a rear-mounted machine, hydraulic folding with upper-link steering
  5. Frame for a rear-mounted machine, with double folding for reduced transport width for large machines

Section-Control - hydr. lifting of sections
Hydraulic lifting of the parallelogram up to 35 cm above the ground (depending on the machine configuration) controlled with GPS-signal or via illuminated pressure switch bar.

Hoeing frame in XXL version
Large machines with big working width (e.g. 72-row grain, 24-row beets, 16-row corn) are available in two different versions: 

  1. Frame for rear-mounted machine with extra-wide middle-frame (transport width more than 3m) 
  2. Frame for rear-mounted machine with trailing chassis (transport width not more than 3m)

Even when working in shapeless fields there is no damage on the crop at the headlands. This option is particularly recommended for contractors or farms with a lot of fields with irregular form.

Finger weeders
The finger weeders were developed to uproot and spill the weeds in the unworked hoeing-strip (close to and between the crop plants). There is not need to adjust them in angle to each other, as they anyway bend up parallel to the ground when they are adjusted correctly. A parallel arrangement of the 2 stars left and right of the row, as well as a separate holder per row, are important for exact operation of the finger weeders. Especially on the CHOPSTAR-TWIN they achieve an outstanding result, as the finger weeders can work the narrow, unworked hoeing-strip (left unworked by the TWIN-element) precisely and completely.

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 after many years of use. 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.

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.

Twin-hoeing element with vertical cutting discs and angle knives
The hoeing section is guided by two Farmflex-support wheels left and right of the row. It is equipped with two vertical cutting discs, which are followed by two angle knives. They are mounted on vibro-springs, so it is possible to work very closely and shallow to the crop. The result is that young crops can be hoed earlier, closer to the crop and with higher working speed than with standard row-crop cultivators without burying plants. In ideal conditions a hoeing belt of less than 5 cm can be realized. The CHOPSTAR-TWIN can be configured from 30 cm up to 75 cm.

Weed control over the full surface
The earlier and the closer to the row hoeing can take place, the easier the weed control in the row can be done (e.g. by fingerweeders or rotative weeder elements). This ensures reduced weed pressure and supports a good establishment of the crop.

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.

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.

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 %.

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). To realize a narrow hoeing belt a ROW-GUARD sideshift frame or a hydraulic steering support is recommended for the CHOPSTAR-TWIN.

Further tailor-made solutions
For our hoes there are a lot of additional options available. Depending on row distance or other options they might not be available or could not be combined with each other. 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.

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.

Row-crop cultivator
CHOPSTAR-TWIN

  • Hoeing above the row
  • Narrow hoeing strip
  • Early hoeing
  • Disruption of capillary action
  • Breaking of crusts
  • Angle knives with vertical cutting discs

 

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.
