AEROSTAR-EXACT - 6.00 m + 12.00 m Tined Weeder
Accurate, sensible and precise – these are the demands now placed on modern weeding technology - especially when working in special crops. With the AEROSTAR-EXACT it is possible to weed row-crops (such as maize, soybean, sun flower, field bean etc.) already at the cotyledon stage (the row is already visible with the naked eye. This is made possible by the precise depth control and especially by the accurate setting options of aggressiveness.
The weeder has pivoting rear wheels for a precise depth control of the tines. The 600 mm long and 7 mm thick cranked tines adapts perfect to unevenness of the ground. They allow the weeding even in a later stage of development of the crop, without hurting them.
The AEROSTAR-EXACT can not only work gentle. With an aggressive adjustment and slightly 'on-hold' positioned tines even strong soil encrustations are effectively broken without damaging the plant.
The 1.5 metre wide weeder sections are fix mounted on the frame. This provides smooth running and allows a precise adjustment of the tined weeder. The tine angle is centrally controlled via the hydraulic section adjustment stepless from the tractor. This hydraulic system allows hydraulic levelling therefore even on very uneven fields the same pressure on each section across the entire working width can be obtained.
The spring coil of the tine is mounted below the tine holder, the tine can therefore vibrate better and does every movement form the spring. This enables a better weeding effect than a conventional spring tine. Due to the known close line spacing of 25 mm the soil profile is completely tilled. Furthermore the lateral movement of the tine causes that plant residues and uprooted weeds can pass the weeder section better and so the risk of clogging is minimized.
