VS 470 | VS 600 M1

The Tined Weeder Pro VS 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 be harrowed. The tine pressure is identical on the ridge crown, ridge flanks and in the furrow.
At the DLG Field Days in Bernburg (Germany) in June 2018, the VS 600 M1 was demonstrated in rye and arrestingly impressed the visitors.In good conditions, the Tined Weeder Pro can be adapted well to the soil conditions and accordingly the weeding success was clearly visible.

Functional Principle

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.


  • Sophisticated tine spring system guarantees identical tine pressure over the full spring travel
  • Each tine has its own spring package
  • The tines can not only be pre-loaded, they can also be lifted (applied for patent)
  • No lateral deflection of the tines in case of unevenness, furrows or crops planted on ridges


  • Longer wear tip → longer lifetime
  • Tine pressure adjustment can be reduced stepless down to zero
  • Crops planted on ridges are protected, since the spring unit is mounted above the frame → high passage
  • Feeler wheels can also be adjusted on the track or the row spacing


  • Hydraulic tine pressure setting
  • Clearly visible scale for setting the tine pressure
  • Hydraulic folding with series connection of the cylinder
    - When folding up the machine, the outer side frames fold up to the
       inner side frames and afterwards 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

Mr Jadrisevits reports about the VS 900 M1

"The VS 900 M1 is currently used for harrowing winter wheat and spelled curdling. However, his main tasks on our farm will be soybean grooming in row crops. I chose APV because the new system of the VS convinced me completely."
