Planting technology - Belt planter | GB 215

2-row, 1.5 t hopper, for varying seed

The belt planter is the right choice to plant non calibrated seed potatoes, various sizes or longish varieties. Higher drive speed is possible with appropriate sizes as with a cup planter. The GB 215 is designed for both, conventional planting and for planting in beds. Hydraulic steering and planting element levelling enable an accurate planting also on slopes. The machine can be equipped with the GRIMME Flow-Board for bed planting. This ensures a constant covering and planting depth and even covering of the crop for perfect growing.

GB 215 with covering discs and cage roller

6 round belts, wide return belts with flights and auger ensure accurate arrangement of the seed crop

Benefits

  • The compact design of the carried machine gives a high maneuverability on the headland
  • Driving speed of up to 10 kmph realize a high output, depending on the crop size and variety, planting distance, machine equipment and soil conditions
  • Tubers per hectare or planting distance setting from the terminal
  • Fewer seed potatoes are required with the automatic row shut off of the planting elements with Section Control.
  • Operation via ISOBUS from the tractor terminal
  • Planting element levelling of +/- 7° at slopes in drive direction, for a precise singling of seed potatoes
  • Uniform growing through constant soil covering of the tubers via hydraulic depth control of the furrow opener and automatic shaping board steering
  • The GRIMME nozzle system ensures a complete dressing of the tuber, and the GRIMME tank system, mounted at the tractor front, enable a safe handling and a proper crop protection
  • Option to applicate micro granular directly into the furrow for an optimum growing start or for seed protection
  • There are different options available for ridge shaping: shaping board for a loose to firm ridge with a smooth surface or cage rollers for a more fine crumbled ridge structure
  • Ideal for bed planting and a accurate centre deposit even at slopes in combination with the GRIMME Flow-Board
  • Steering wheels available as an option for less drifting
