2-row, up to 2.2 t hopper, for separated beds

The GL 32 B is designed both for conventional planting and for planting into beds. The GRIMME professional planting element is the right choice for a very precise and even planting distance. Different setting options of the machine together with good calibrated seed enable a high planting speed. Soil retention plates under the machine keep the soil for ridge shaping. Keeping enough soil for the following shaping board or cage roller.

Large capacity

High output due to a large hopper of 2200 kg.

Agility and manoeuvrability

The compact design of the carried machine gives a high maneuverability on the headland

Ridge shaping on light soils

For an improved water absorption on light soils, cage rollers can be used in combination with spring-loaded ridging bodies.

Well formed ridges

Shaping board for building ridges with specific characteristics from loose to firm soil with a smooth surface

Combined plant protection

GRIMME tank system TS 410, authorized for liquid chemicals to be applied onto the seed potatoes and/or into the furrow.

Combining work steps

The combination of a potato planter (rear mounted) with a extended fertilizer spreader (front mounted) enable to realize an under-root fertilisation as well as the application of liquid seed dressing and furrow treatment agent in a single pass with potato planting.

Benefits

  • The compact design of the carried machine provides a high maneuverability on the headland
  • The powerful planting element enables a simple adaption to the tuber size and ensures therefore an exact spacing.
  • The combination of specially developed furrow opener, planting cups, the longest singling way, an adjustable drop rod and a low drop height enable an even planting distance in the required planting depth.
  • Several options, which are well approved in bigger machines, are available to increase the output
  • Comfortable setting of all important parameters from the tractor
  • With the hydraulic height adjustment an easy adaption to various bed heights is possible. The option is either available via manual control from the tractor terminal or alternative automatic controlled.
  • Different row and tracks width available
  • Narrow, fixed furrow opener ensure an optimum planting position
  • The deflector plates keep the soil in the bed, thus providing for adequate soil for ridge shaping.
  • A shaping board can be used for building ridges with specific characteristics from loose to firm soil with a smooth surface. There are several versions for ridge shaping bodies available for a perfect adaptation to different soil conditions, ridge shapes and ridge volumes.
  • For an improved water absorption on light soils, cage rollers can be used in combination with spring-loaded ridging bodies. The cage rollers provide a light, airy ridge with an open-pored surface.
  • Suitable for long fields due to the large volume of 2200 kg of the tipping hopper
  • 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
  • Change between seed dressing and liquid chemical furrow application in a machine is possible
  • Option to applicate micro granular directly into the furrow for an optimum growing start or for seed protection
  • Comfortable machine control with the GRIMME video system
