Soil cultivation - Row dependent soil cultivation | GF 200

2-row rotary hiller resp. full width tiller for cultivation of vegetable and potatoes

The rotary tiller type GF 200, mounted in the rear or in the front of the tractor, is suitable as a full width tiller for an optimum seedbed preparation for the cultivation of various vegetables and potatoes. An ideal prepared seedbed is the prerequisite for optimum development of the seed resp. planting tubers. Through intensive soil cultivation, root crop ground preparation is perfectly achieved so that undisturbed growth of the crop can be guaranteed. For conventional hilling (in a second working step) the rotary tiller GF 200 can be modified to be used as a rotary hiller with rear attachment at the tractor. The machine can be converted from independent rows to a full width tiller with a few simple steps. When attached to the front of the tractor, the GF 200 can be perfectly combined with a potato planter at the rear side of the tractor. The drive is designed for a tractor output up to 165 HP.

The ideal seedbed

Through intensive soil cultivation, root crop ground preparation is perfectly achieved so that undisturbed growth of the crop can be guaranteed.

The ideal combination

The GRIMME Rotary Tiller GF 200 with front attachment, is ideally suited to be combined with a trailed or mounted 2-row potato planters. Convenient especially for short headlands and smaller acreage, a compact tractor implement combination is available for these requirements.

Even deep guidance

The large carriage roller ensure an even working depth.

Preparatory work

Ridge shaper with integrated formers that prevent loosened soil from being compacted by the tractor wheels.

Combined plant protection

GRIMME tank system TS 420 on the rotary hiller GF 200 at tractor front. Authorized for liquid chemicals to be applied onto the seed potatoes and/or into the furrow

Suitable for very stony soils

Rotor shaft with extra stable spikes for very stony conditions.

Benefits

  • General benefits:
    • Full width tilling for an optimum seedbed preparation for potatoes or other vegetables
    • Special rotor shaft with spikes for stony conditions
    • Gearbox for up to 165 HP tractor power
  • GF 200 front attachment:
    • GF 200 can be used as a full width tiller for bed tilling and ridge pre-shaping
    • When mounted on the front of a tractor the machine works great in combination with a rear mounted potato planter. The combination of soil cultivation and planting in a single pass can significantly reduce running costs and ground compaction.
    • The GRIMME tank system TS 420 is optionally available for the rotary tiller GF 200 in front attachment (2 x 200 l, consider the tractor lifting power)
  • GF 200 rear attachment:
    • GF 200 as rotary hiller in rear attachment for conventional ridge hilling
    • lifting frame for seeder (e.g. carrots, celery etc.) soil preparation and seeding in one working step reduce the working time and driving over the field
    • ridge shaping in various sizes, optimum adaption to the cultivation conditions
    • soil loosening tines between the ridges rear of the shaping board for a better water absorption
    • Even depth guidance also in changing conditions, via support wheels in front of the rotary tiller
    • guiding disc for stabilisation on slopes
