Colibrì

Surgery in Horticuture

 

 

 

Colibrì is our inter-row weeding machine with row distances starting from 4.50 cm: it acts 2 cm from the sown row without damaging the root and leaf system, eradicating weeds and the germination of new ones. It is particularly suitable for crops such as carrot, fresh-cut products, valeriana, sown rice, parsley, basil, rocket, spinach, red chard, radish, spinach on a flat soil or on a bed.

 

 

Our “COLIBRI‘”:

  • is a delicate crust breaker with a depth ranging from 2.5-3 cm, because of his active weeding (the discs rotate clockwise at an adjustable speed);
  • does not move the plants carrying  block of soil, it is very precise.
  • works from the early stages of plant growth, 10 days after sowing;
  • suitable for organic cultivation.

 

Original and unique:

  • precise;
  • Revolutionary and inimitable;
  • Flexible, with multiple configurations;
  • Practical;

Walking speed from 0.8 to 2.5 km / h on carrot and baby leaf;

The machine is made up of a hydraulic shifting frame, with one or more motorized parallelograms containing the appropriate weeding discs configuration: depending on the machine configuration, we can apply the sensors to keep each parallelogram working depth constant and the automatic double camera for controlling the frame shifting.

 

The parallelogram consists of bundles of toothed steel weeding disks, with the following characteristics:

A) inclined Teeth in the opposite direction to the plant: protect the plant by compressing the soil outwards.

B) Inclined sawtooth teeth, arranged in the spaces not occupied by the seedlings, dig the germination and the weeds away.

 

Weeding discs work up to 2 cm from the rows at an adjustable depth equal to and no greater than 3 cm, preserving the collar of the plant.

It works on all crops in narrow rows with inter-row distance of the bins (L1) from 4.5 to 35 cm.

Combination of groups of discs developed on the basis of the size of the drawing provided by the customer.

Optional

Options list

SQUARED SHIFTING HYDRAULIC FRAME

Including third-point coupling, it is equipped with two opposing hydraulic pistons, which move the frame to the right or left, aligning with precision on the inter-rows.

Frame width L in cm:

240  or more

Wheels with ridge

Directional wheels

Adjustable in height

Diameter of wheels from: 400 x 100 thickness

SEPARATED INDEPENDENT HYDRAULIC SYSTEM

The hydraulic system is divided to keep the oil stable from the height adjustment, the rotation of the discs and the shifting of the frame.

 

AUTOMATIC WORK DEPTH MAINTENANCE SYSTEM AND MOVEMENT CONTROL CONSOLLE

 

* From a dedicated monitor, we set the working depth.

*You can work with the rear consolle with all hydraulic controls both for the parallelograms working depth, the shifting steering, and the rotation of the discs.

 

MOTOR DRIVEN PARALLELOGRAMS

A hydraulic motor, applied on each parallelogram, will rotate the buble of the discs.  The speed adjustment takes place through a proportional valve on the machine, considering the  soil type and the crop. The right ratio favors the grubbing-up of the weeds, avoiding the possible spread of soil on the plants.

 

* Hydraulic locking of parallelograms during the movements.

RTK CAMERA DRIVE, WITH 10′ DISPLAY JUST FOR MONITORING

To facilitate operator visibility on rows, we assemble a camera placed in front of a single row.

The operator can see the work area enlarged on the monitor.

In case of RTK on the tractor, if the machine is configurated with Hydraulic drive with a Joystick, the tractor drive can himself adjust the machine. In this case no operator behind needed on the chair.

AUTOMATIC DRIVING SYSTEM WITH DOUBLE CAMERA FOR ROW DETECTION

A special camera is placed ahead the machine and detect the green colour of the plant and the red colour of the soil.

A special software processes the pre-set colours picking out two different areas that the program uses for maintaining the machine direction thanks to the shifting frame.

The operator by means of a screen placed in the cabin can see a panoramic image of the rows and the direction elaborated by the software at the same time.
