The Tined Weeder Pro VS 900 M1 adjusts with its unique tine spring system to the soil and protects the culture plant at the highest level. Its 8 mm tines
in a 35 mm spacing apply the same tine pressure on the ground even at different tine levels. This enables harrowing of crops planted on ridges, such as potatoes. The tine pressure stays the same on the ridge crowns, ridge flanks and in the furrow. In contrast to the conventional Tined Weeders, the harrow tine is indirectly spring-loaded and pivots within the frame. The benefit of this is that the tine can only move downwards and upwards and not to left or right → a unique weed removal experience.
The tines penetrate the soil while harrowing to a maximum depth of 2-3 cm in order to break up and crumble the top soil crust. This ensures a better soil aeration and the capillarity is interrupted. The main focus of harrowing is on the reduction of weeds. While the tines move over the soil, bad herbs in the shoot or germination stage will be covered with soil or pulled out and discarded on top of the soil. There, they wither and die off. This means that approximately 90 % of the weed germs in the stock are decimated.
