Kongskilde is introducing a new mechanical row crop cultivator at Agromek 2012 - Vibro Crop Intelli - with camera steering and GPS section control for working in irregular-shaped fields. The new Vibro Crop Intelli has been given a Three-Star Europe New Product award.
Kongskilde Vibro Crop Intelli row crop cultivator
The new Vibro Crop Intelli row crop cultivator is mounted in a new hydraulic side-shift frame attached to the tractor. By means of a camera mounted on the side wing and a control box in the tractor cab the side-shift frame ensures that the cultivator constantly follows the individual rows. With an accuracy down to approx. 2.5 cm the cultivator is able to work very close to the plant rows.
GPS Section Control
Vibro Crop Intelli row crop cultivator can be equipped so that each individual section can be hydraulically lifted out of the row during operation. With the new row lifting system the crop can be cleaned all the way to the headland, even on oblique work. This means that the use of herbicides can be reduced, as the entire field can now be cleaned mechanically. The automatic section control is managed via a GPS terminal in the tractor cab.
Optional Grass Seed Hopper
As an option, Vibro Crop Intelli row crop cultivator can be equipped with a pneumatic grass seed hopper (FS Seeder), which enables the sowing of compulsory intermediate crops after the final pass in certain markets. The grass seed is distributed through flexible hoses to spreading plates mounted in front of the following harrow, which immediately covers the seed and encourages fast germination.
The new Vibro Crop Intelli row crop cultivator is available in 50 cm row width for 12 and 18 rows, and in 75 cm row width for 8 or 12 rows. By means of a new frame construction a capacity increase of 50% is achieved over the previous frame design.
Agromek is Northern Europe's largest agricultural exhibition, where tomorrow's solutions are presented.
