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!
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.
