Harvest preparation - Haulm topper | KS 3600

4-row, for row widths from 85 to 90 cm

In order to promote uniform ripening of the tubers, haulm reduction can be carried out two to three weeks before harvesting. In addition to preventing the transmission of viral infections from the haulm into the tuber, a good skin set on the tubers can be achieved to improve storability. Instead of or as a supplement to chemical siccation, GRIMME offers a sustainable solution of haulm topping. By using a haulm topper, the haulm of the potatoes is mechanically crushed and deposited between the ridges. Careful placement of the haulm between the ridges is important. Epecially if the stems of the potato plants are to be treated with other herbicides afterwards. A further advantage is the reduced risk of blockage at the intake of the harvester and the resulting increased throughput capacity in case of extreme masses of haulm.

Uniform power transmission

The 4-fold V-belt drive ensures an even transmission of the required torque.

Precise haulm discharge

Deflector plates ensure an exact haulm discharge between the ridges

Ideal force distribution to the flail shaft

The double sided drive of the strong gearbox ensures smooth running and relief of the material.

Height adjustable

The support wheels are equipped with a spindle for stepless height adjustment. Pendular support wheels can be selected as well, which allow steering movements.

Benefits

  • Drive designed for high haulm amounts or high driving speed
  • Large diameter flail shaft ensure a good suction and flailing quality on and between the rows
  • For an optimum result diverse flail settings are available for various conditions.
  • Deflector plates ensure exact haulm discharge between the rows
  • Optimum depth control via infinitely adjustable support wheels and via tractor lifting
