Planting technology - Cup planter | GL 410

4-row, 1 t bunker, for tractors from 70 HP

The GRIMME GL 410 is a lightweight, mounted, 4-row potato planter. 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. The chassis is integrated in front of the covering discs to reduce the required lifting power to a minimum direct ridge shaping in combination with a shaping board or cage roller ensures an even covering. A front tank system or granulate castor are available for this machine to combine several working steps.

High output planting element

Enables a simple adaption to the tuber size and ensures therefore an exact spacing.

Also suitable for light soils

Four height adjustable wheels enable planting in light soils.

Well formed ridges

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

Optimum accessibility

Easily fillable tipping hopper.

Combined plant protection

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

Benefits

  • The compact design of the carried machine gives a high manoeuvrability on the headland and uses less power consumption.
  • The powerful planting element enables a simple adaption to the tuber size and ensures therefore an exact planting distance.
  • The height adjustable axle controls the optimum depth adjustment.
  • The furrow opener on a parallelogram for exact depth control are available as an option.
  • A shaping board can be used for building ridges with specific characteristics from loose to firm soil with a smooth surface.
  • Bigger ridges with a scope of up to 1.05 m by use of XL shaping boards. On soils with a tendency to water logging, the XL shaping boards are the ideal solution, as it allows a slightly higher tuber placement in the ridge. In addition, the bigger ridges give more room for a larger tuber nest, meaning green tubers are reduced to a minimum.
  • PE lining in the XL shaping board for less soil sticking and reduced power consumption
  • For an improved water absorption on light soils, cage rollers can be used in combination with fix or spring-loaded ridging bodies. The cage rollers provide a light, airy ridge with an open-pored surface.
  • 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
  • The miss indicator option relieves the driver by monitoring the correct filling of the cups.
  • Comfortable machine control with the GRIMME video system
