Disc Hoeing Machine
From Mechanical Weeding
The Steketee Disc Hoeing Machine is the ideal machine for all row crops. The Steketee Disc Hoeing element consists of a parallelogram (basic element) fitted with a hoeing blade and continuously adjustable disc set. The hoeing blade cuts the weeds at the track bottom. De weeds at the ridge sides and part of the weeds at the ridge top are cut off by the discs. The disc height and angle are continuously adjustable for use with any ridge. An adjustable travelling wheel in combination with the spring load guarantees constant weeding depth. The crusher rotors, which can be fitted on the element, transport the cut weeds. The Disc Hoeing Machine can be supplied in working widths of 1.5, 3.0, 4.5 and 6.0 metres. Furthermore, the Steketee Basic Element can be extended with different parts, forming the basis for various crop protection methods.
