Bockerode, 8. September 2010 – the new 4-row three-point linkage carried potato planter GL 420 with various convincing innovations. New large covering discs (510 mm diameter) in front of the wheels ensure an optimum ridge shaping as soil compaction is reduced with this system. The shaping board is either mechanically or hydraulically height adjustable to give you the choice to shape a loose or compact ridge. The innovative connection of the furrow opener with the shaping board guarantees a constant planting depth even with changing ground conditions and bunker load.
The GL 420 with the option to combine with a Grimme Rota Tilla RT 300 or a Lemken power harrow. Unique: the working depth of the cultivator is independently hydraulically adjusta-ble to the depth of the planter
The intuitive operated touch screen terminal VC 50, with which you can also operate other can-bus operated Grimme machines, is available as option for the GL 420.
For those users who want to yield equal crop the option “clever planting” is on offer. The hydraulic single row drive of the planting belts ensure cultivating optimized planting dis-tance at the right and left-hand side of the spraying track to ensure an equal crop growing.
