TEKLA - Herbicide Joist for Berry Bushes
Our herbicide joist is designed for fighting against weed under the bushes on currant, gooseberry and chokeberry plantations. It may also be used on other fruit crops. The joist is hung in front of the tractor and powered from any sprayer connected to a steering valve. The steering pipe in a lifting mechanism is connected to quick hitches in a tractor’s hydraulic. A hydraulic mechanism allows an easy lifting of the joist into a transport position without leaving the cabin. Two sprayers (symmetrical and asymmetrical) are installed under a suitably formed cover made of a stainless metal sheet. A symmetrical sprayer is equipped in a throttle. Both front and back of the cover have flexible extensions that reach the ground. Working part of the joist is being pressed to the bottom of a bush with a spring. Another spring balances the weight of the whole working part. Backside of the cover is transparent, which allows a visual control over the sprayer.
Herbicide joist is installed in front of the tractor with the same carrier we use in the currants cutter FORMER. That means that the cost of the herbicide joist will be lower for the customers who already have the cutter, because they will only need to buy the working part of the joist. Replaceable brackets system allows installing of the joist in most types of tractors.
