VS 900 M1

 

With its unique tine spring system, the VS Tined Weeder Pro perfectly adjusts to the soil and protects the cash crop at the highest level. Tine pressure remains constent at different tine levels. As a result, even crops planted on ridges and mounds, such as the potatoes, can easily be harrowed. The tine pressure remains  consistant, whether it is on the top or sides of the mounds, or in the furrows. The VS Pro‘s harrow tines can not only be lifted, but also - as opposed to conventional Tined Weeders - are indirectly spring-loaded to pivot within the frame. The advantage being that the tines can only move up or down and not side to side - a truly unique weed removal experience!

Operations

The tines penetrate the soil while harrowing to a maximum depth of 0.8 in - 1.2 in 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
