VS 600 M1

The VS Tined Weeder Pro adjusts with its unique tine spring system to the soil and protects the culture plant at the highest level. The tine pressure remains constant at different tine levels. As a result, crops planted on ridges, such as the potato, can also be harrowed. The tine pressure is identical on the ridge crown, ridge flanks and in the furrow.
At its innitial demonstration in rye in June 2018, the VS 600 M1 impressed the visitors.In good conditions, the Tined Weeder Pro could be adapted well to the soil conditions and accordingly the weeding success was clearly visible.

Operations

The tines penetrate the soil while harrowing to a maximum depth of 0.8” - 1.2” to break up and crumble the top soil crust. This ensures better soil aeration and the capillarity is interrupted. The main focus of harrowing is to reduce weeds before they reach the two leaf stadium of growth. While the tines move over the soil, growing weeds in germination stage will be covered with soil or pulled out and discarded on top of the soil where they wither and die off. This means that approximately 90% of the weeds are decimated.

EXACT

  • Sophisticated tine spring system guarantees identical tine pressure throughout the entire spring span
  • Each tine has its own individual spring system
  • The tines can be pre-loaded, and tines can also be lifted
  • No lateral deflection of the tines even if ground is uneven, has furrows, or if crops are planted on mounds

VERSATILE

  • 0.8 in longer wear tip in comparison to the competitor‘s product, resulting in longer life span
  • Tine pressure adjustment can be reduced continuously down all the way to zero

  • Crops planted on mounds are protected, since the spring unit is mounted above the frame giving a higher passage for cover crops

  • Feeler wheels can also be adjusted on the track or the row spacing

COMFORTABLE

  • Hydraulic tine pressure setting
  • Clearly visible scale for setting the tine pressure
  • Hydraulic folding with series connection of the cylinder
    - when folding the machine, the outer side frames fold   up to the inner side frames and then to a 90 degree high position
    - unfolding is done in the reverse order of folding up

  • Adjustment handle for feeler wheels integrated in wheel mount
