Rotovert application on Rotosark

Rotovert Rotors

 

ROTOVERT ROTORS

 

 

The Rotovert weeding system works directly on the transplant row without damaging the root and leaf system, uprooting the weeds and thus reducing the need for chemical herbicides.

 

 

 

The system is composed by two opposed vertical Rotors, with curved hook-style blades, 3 cm wide that work over the row on the same parallelogram:

 -Vertically Positioned towards the plant;

-Minimum distance from the transplant line of 2 cm or more;

-They are inclinated 28°  in the direction to the plant;

-They begin to rotate by touching the soil, penetrating it up to 4 cm;

-The round form will never move the plant by touching its roots  or the pot;

-The hook-style blades push the soil one against the other (going in the middle of the row) breaking the crust and eliminating the germination of weeds; if presence of weeds, they will push  them away during the rotation.

-We can work 7 days after transplant and 10 days from sowing.

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 / 255 / 300 / 450 / 520

Fixed drive

Height adjustable support wheel.              

Applicable on various frames, it  maintains the alignment of the machine

Mechanical Steering

Adjustable directional wheels.

Manual steering with seat for the operator.

Applicable on a fixed frame, it maintains the alignment of the machine, acting on the appropriate handlebar guided by the operator.

Mount crested wheels of various sizes.

Hydraulic driving

Hydraulic driven adjustable directional wheels.

Steering wheel with power steering.

Applicable on large machines, it maintains the alignment of the machine, acting on the special hydraulic guide, it reduces the operator’s effort.

Mount crested wheels of various sizes.

Rotovert application

The Rotovert application works on all crops with inter-row distance from 15 to 35 cm.

Suitable for: for some crops transplanted and seeded in row and on ridge (salad, celery, leek, onions, carrots, radicchio).

33) Inter row (distance between rows):

ø40 file (L) from 15 to 35

Single element

Used for one or more rows, flexible, fully adjustable with only one registry key.

Consisting of:

25) Parallelogrammo with springs pre-set variable load (A), with adjustment by means of a handle.

Free variable load (B),with crank adjustment.

 26) Structure elements carrier supports base set-up and options.

 27) HOES Of varying sizes.

 28) RIDGER

Big parallelogram element

Combined element only one parallelograms on the sides mount a series of bars, which allow a wider layout of the Rotovert application

Advised for narrow interrow distances.

Parallelogram 

The two parallelograms (A) ensure a homogeneous compression on all the assembled components, thanks to a system of springs (B) which, arranged in different positions, increase or decrease the compression on the ground

C) Elements holder structure

Supports basic equipment and options.

 D) Group of ploughshares

Of different sizes, the ploughshares work the land in the row, where the rotors do not reach.The dimensions of the ploughshares are related to the distance of the plants between the inter-rows.

 E) ridger

Reinforces the plants, covering them at the base of the soil.

SQUARED FRAME

FOR CUSTOMIZED MACHINES

Frame width L in cm: 240

Optional

Options list

FRONT SIDE SHARE

Flatten the soil, removes stones

Suitable for hard/compacted soils

Flexible spring

Mounted on spikes placed on the directional wheels, they lift and break the tractor track.

Hoe to restore furrow

It penetrates deep into the soil uprooting the weeds grown on the impression left by the tractor.

Restore the land, bringing it level.

The working depth is adjustable

System to lift drip irrigation hose

Device that lifts the hose before the passage of the Rotoblizz.

Fertilizer distributor

System that allows the fertilizer fertilizer to be administered during the work of  weeding.

RTK CAMERA DRIVE

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 STEERING SYSTEM WITH 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.
