TRANSFORMER VF

Sturdy hoeing technology for mechanical weed control

Strengths

Of the Transformer vf

  • Folds in five sections
  • Cylinder of the 180° folding is located in a protected position inside the frame
  • Stable, hydraulically adjustable support wheels
  • Bending due to double lifting cylinders for a 90° folding allows for:
    • More comfortable turning due to slightly raised side wings
    • Excellent adaption to hilly terrain due to floating position in working position

ALWAYS A TRUMP CARD IN YOUR HAND

Advantages of RowLift

 

  • Overlapping on the headlands and at field boundaries is reduced to the minimum
  • Constant working quality on the whole field
  • Increase of the productivity under various conditions (day and night, fog)
  • Relief of the driver
  • Precise lifting of the individual row at high operational speeds
  • Lifting height approx. 20 cm

Camera system

 

  • Well-proven technology
  • Efficient weed control by driving close to the plants
  • Perfect for organic and conventional farming, especially for populations with herbicide resistances
  • Wide range of application due to colour-independent 3D row detection
  • Colour selection in 2D mode guarantees more applications possibilities
  • Small plants as of 2 cm can be detected
  • Proportional valve for smoother and more precise movement of the frame

Optional

  • Two cameras, one at the left and one at the right side
  • Lighting kit to be able to work at night and in bad lighting conditions

PRECISION AND EFFICIENCY

Its assets

 

  • Excels due to acreage performance and stability
  • Sturdy and at the same time compact design
  • Combines variability and precision
  • Simple handling

Three basic frame concepts

    • 6 m working width
    • 9 m working width
    • 12 m working width

Frame

 

    • Frame height of 660 mm allows for a late use in high crops
    • Inside clamping profile guarantees maximum variability with regard to the arrangement of the tools and at the same time allows for a compact design for large working widths
    • Torsional stiffness and stability due to frame concept with square tube and welded clamping profile
    • Fully integrated side sliding frame with a range of 450 mm
      • Saves weight
      • Allows for a low overall design depth
      • Leads to more precision
    • Cylinder with inside odometer sensor

Parallelogram

 

    • Solid 3-bar parallelogram for different row spacings: 25, 30, 45, 50, 60, 70, 75 and 80 cm
    • With a row spacing of 25 cm two resp. three rows are hoed with one parallelogram
    • Simple and quick adjustment of the working depth without any tools
    • Maintenance-free
    • Wide parallelogram, stable bearing and large tyres for a long operating life and good working effects, even on heavy and stony soils
    • Hydraulic body retraction for a transport width of 3 m and SectionControl

      The tine

       

      • A 15 and 18 cm wide point for precise, shallow cutting
      • Angular points to protect the crops at an early stage
      • Welded to a slim shaft, for only little movement of the soil
      • Simple fixing of the coulter shaft at the upper spring to make sure that the height is kept up
      • Carbide coated for increased stability (optional)
      • Optional: a following harrow behind every parallelogram
