Soil cultivation - Row dependent soil cultivation | GF 800

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

The rotary tiller type GF 800 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 800 can be modified to be used as a rotary hiller. The machine can be converted from independent rows to a full width tiller with a few simple steps. The power transmission is designed for tractor outputs up to 500 HP. Highest acreage outputs combined with fast transfers from field to field make this machine one of the most powerful rotary tillers on the market. The large working width and the hydraulically foldable main frame make this possible.

Up to 500 hp

Most powerful rotary tiller in the market, using a heavy duty gear box for tractors of up to 500 HP.

Highest number of cultivation tines

An increased rotor speed and a high number of tines (option) ensure an intensive tillage on heavy and sticky soils.

Fast movement between fields

Safe road transport and quick change from field to field due to a fast hydraulic frame folding mechanism.

Variable volume of the ridges

Shaping board adjustable via turnbuckle to adjust for the required ridge size.

Large-volume ridges

The shaping board XL creates ridges with a large volume, so that there is enough space for a large tuber-nest.

Across the full width

Soil cultivation on the full working width, for shredding clods and crop residues as well as for superficial tillage (e.g. stubble fields).

Benefits

  • Conventional ridge hilling
  • full width tilling for an optimum seedbed preparation for potatoes or other vegetables
  • drive shaft with cam shut down coupling has an low-wear overload protection also with many causes through stones or trash compared to the friction drive
  • An increased rotor speed and higher number of tines ensure an intensive tillage on heavy and sticky soils
  • ridge shaping in various sizes, optimum adaption to the cultivation conditions
  • Eight loosening tines for increased ground loosening under the following ridges require less tractor power with full width tillage and enable a better root growing in the ground
  • Two loosening tines loose the soil in the tractor track
  • Even depth guidance also in changing conditions, via different support wheels in front of the rotary tiller
  • Hydraulically foldable main frame for road transport and quick transfer from field to field
  • Reinforced gearbox for up to 500 HP tractor power
