Planting technology - Belt planter | GB 330

3-row, 3 t hopper, planting more potatoes per square meter

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 330 is especially designed for 3-row planting into beds. Compared to the 2-row bed method, it is possible to plant more potatoes on the same area and to distribute them more evenly. The result is a more even growth of the tubers and thus an increased quota of marketable crops. Fertiliser box, chemicals equipment and GRIMME Flow-Board are available as an option.

Planting in beds

Flow-Board for even covering of the planted tubers

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

Optimal growth

Barrel system for liquid tuber dressing and furrow treatment as well as a fertilizer spreader for under-root fertilisation.

High degree of agility and manoeuvrability

Steerable wheels offer advantages at the headlands and on slopes

Perfectly adapted for every tractor

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


  • The 3-row planting in a bed ensures more marketable crops. More tubers per hectare are planted with the third row in the bed, thus realizes a better use of the available field and increased output per hectare. the third row also creates a different distance between the tubers thus ensures a more even growth and therefore more marketable crop compared to the traditional or quad system (two rows of potatoes in a ridge).
  • Working speed of up to 10 kmph realize a high output, depending on the tuber size and variety, planting distance and soil conditions.
  • The tuber spacing and the number of tubers per hectare can be adjusted from the operator terminal.
  • Fewer seed potatoes are required with the automatic row shut-off of the planting elements with Section Control.
  • For a precise singling of seed potatoes on slopes, the planting element can be levelled +/- 7° in relation to driving direction.
  • Uniform growing through constant soil covering of the tubers via hydraulic depth control of the furrow opener and automatic shaping board steering.
  • The approved GRIMME tank system allows the application of liquid chemicals as well as of furrow treatments and supports the driver with several comfort functions.
  • Efficient and resource-saving use of fertiliser through application directly when planting with the GRIMME fertiliser box.
  • Simultaneous application of liquid chemicals and granulates for an optimal start of the vegetation.
  • The GRIMME Flow-Board creates an accurately centered tuber placing in beds even at slopes.
  • For a centre tuber placing in ridges the hydraulic steering axle (option) minimizes the slope drift .
