Planting technology - Belt planter | GB 430

4-row, 3 t hopper, for high output

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 430 is designed for both, conventional planting and for planting in beds. Two different chassis available to combine the various options of ridge shaping to suit the requirements. Fertiliser box, chemicals equipment and GRIMME Flow-Board are available as an option. A video system is available to control the machine functions.

Flow-Board for bed cultivation

Box turning unit

Chassis with big wheels and shaping board

Chassis with gantry pivot axle, high agility due to a steering angle of 35°

Benefits

  • Driving speed of up to 10 kmph realize a high output, depending on the crop size and variety, planting distance and soil conditions
  • Tubers per hectare or planting distance setting from the terminal
  • Less seed potatoes required with the automatic single row deactivation of the planting elements with Section Control and hydraulic single row drive
  • Clever Planting realizes better tuber growth as the planting distance is smaller next to the spraying tracks, as well as using the nutrients and light from the spraying tracks.
  • Automatic row dependent steering via hydraulic steering drawbar with pre-shaped ridges for an optimum centre tuber position
  • 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
  • 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
  • Uniform weight distribution, different ridge shaping options and ridge shaping without following tracks in combination with a chassis with 4 wheels and ridge shaping behind the axle
  • Ideal for bed planting and a accurate centre deposit even at slopes is the chassis with 2 wheels at the outside and ridge shaping in front of the wheels
  • Hydraulic steering axle and a large steering angle of up to 42°(chassis with 2 wheels) or 32° (chassis with 4 wheels) enable a high agility
