Separating technology - Bed former | BF 600

3 bed system, requirement for stone and clod free beds

The first step of the separation system is to set up the beds. Two basic models are available for the various soil conditions. The large BF plough body for use especially on medium to heavy soils with big stones and large amount on clods. The BFL plough body with long side mouldboards is recommended for light soils to keep the loose soil in the bed, preventing it from falling back into the furrow. It is possible to combine both bodies with bed loosening tines to work in non-prepared soils.

Flexibly applicable

Use as single bed former when folded.

Loosening of subsoil

Depth loosening tines with shear bolt protection (option)

Reduced horsepower requirements

Adjustable parallel linkage for the outer bodies, allowing outside bodies to work at full or half depth.

For light to medium soils

The BFL body with long mouldboard is recommended for track width up to 180 cm. BFL body with long mouldboard shapes "kit-kat" (trapezoidal) beds with a small furrow.

Even deep guidance

Two large support wheels ensure an even working depth.

Benefits

  • Two different bed former bodies for diverse soil conditions
    • BF body suits especially heavy soils
    • BFL body with long mouldboards for more stability in the beds, recommended for light to medium soils
  • Large main frame, for a simple adaptation to the required bed-width of 1.50 m to 2.00 m
  • Mechanical shearbolts or auto-reset stone protection for big stones or other foreign bodies in the ground
  • Shaping of four beds with one field crossing via lane marker or parallel drive system
  • To avoid pulling from the sides whilst shaping three beds it is possible to adjust the working depth of the outer bodies via a hydraulically operated parallelogram, in case of working without lane markers or parallel drive system
  • Extra plates (option) for soils with a high content of impurities for a better mixing in the soil
  • Additional subsoiler legs (option) in front of the bed shaper bodies to create loose soil in the furrow also in heavy soils
  • Additional loosening tines with shearbolt protection or auto-reset spring for increased ground loosening under the following bed enable a better root growing in the ground
  • Two large support wheels ensure an even working depth
  • Increased track guidance especially at slopes via guiding slides (option)
  • Hydraulically foldable main frame for road transport
