The name GB 215 (Grimme Belt Planter) stands for the new generation of belt planters for 2 rows with 1.5 t bunker capacity. The special design enables high working speed and a gentle handling of the traditional chitted seed.
The setting of the planting distance and other functions are comfortable set via the operator terminal VC 50 and a joy-stick box in the tractor cab.
The short construction, hydraulic steering and planting element levelling enable an accurate planting also at slopes! The accurate planting is controlled with following proven combination:
a sensor controls that only as many tubers transferred to the planting element as necessary .
round belts, arranged as a flat hollow, ensure a close-band of tubers with reduced rolling and friction. What is especially important for chitted seed.
conveyors, to return excess crop to the back
A counter controls the numbers of planted tubers. The number is shown on a display.
For the planting in separated beds is a special unit with a soil guiding system under the machine available. The so called FLOW-BOARD was awarded with a silver medal from the DLG. Furrow opener are integrated in the shaping board "Flow Board" which ensure an exact planting depth on various ground conditions and creates a well shaped ridge to cover the crop and reduces greens. The hydraulic depth control is comfortable set from the terminal.
