Excellent for breaking up hard soil crusts!
The RH 600 M1 roller hoe is ideally suited for breaking up hard soil crusts. The rotating hoe rings bury or uproot the weeds, promote tillering, and incorporate oxygen into the soil. Due to the rotating working process of the unit is no blocking and harrowing of Clivers is possible. Since the roller hoe is not sensitive to organic residues, it is recommended for use in mulch seeding.
Mode of operation
The work is performed by 6 mm-thick spring steel pins, which are cast in a slanted polyurethane disc. These hoe rings with a diameter of 50 cm are suspended in pairs and can therefore individually adapt to ground undulations. The slanted position of the rings increases the degree of efficacy. The slanted position of the rings deposits the loosened soil offset to the side. Since the weeds are lighter than the soil, the weeds fall to the ground more slowly than the soil and remains on the top, where they then dry out.
Thanks the to the profiled hollow profile frame, it is possible to change the line distance in pairs or to adapt the implement to the crop by removing individual pairs of rings. Using the quick lifting (available as an accessory), the implement can be adapted to the crop without using tools, only the folded-up arm must be secured with a pin. The track width of the guide wheel can also be adapted to the crop through the profile frame.
The pressing force is infinitely variably adjusted from the tractor cab by extending the hydraulic top link. If the top link is retracted, the pressure on the rings is reduced until they hover above the soil horizon.
Because the working rings are arranged back-to-front from the middle, no lateral pulling forces arise. To ensure full area tillage, the pair in the middle is slightly set back, otherwise the two rings in the middle would interlock and this would cause damage to the crops.

The roller hoe can also be combined with our Pneumatic Seeder (available as an accessory). In this combination, the roller hoe is suitable for nurse crops, for spreading fertiliser during the hoeing procedure, and to seed catch crops after harvesting.
The baffle plates are mounted in front of the profile frame and can be adjusted in height so that the rings incorporate the spreading material.
Can be used with PS 120 M1, PS 200 M1 and PS 300 M1 Pneumatic Seeder with electrical/hydraulic blower fan
