Planting technology - Belt planter | GB 230

2-row, 3 t hopper, ideal for bed planting

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 230 is designed for both, conventional planting and for planting in beds. Fertiliser box, chemicals equipment and GRIMME Flow-Board are available as an option. All main settings are comfortable adaptable during operation via the operator terminal. A video system is available to control the machine functions.

Planting in beds

Flow-Board for even covering of the planted tubers

Perfectly adapted for every tractor

For optimum adaptation to the tractor, the drawbar can be telescoped mechanically.

High capacity

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

Agility and manoeuvrability

Steerable wheels offer advantages at the headlands and on slopes


  • 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.
  • Comfortable setting of the important parameters from the tractor
  • 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.
  • 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 complete dressing of the tuber, and the GRIMME tank system enables a safe handling as well as a proper crop protection
  • Granulated fertilising left and right of the tuber with the GRIMME fertiliser box
  • Option to applicate micro granular directly into the furrow for an optimum growing start or for seed protection
  • Traditional cultivation with covering discs and separate ridge shaping in a second work step
  • Ideal for bed planting and an accurately centered tuber placing even at slopes in combination with the GRIMME Flow-Board
  • Hydraulic steering axle for high agility and less drifting on slopes
