Grimme GB 330 Planter
**Advertising on behalf on customer**
The Grimme GB 330 Planter is based on the successful GB 230. However, the remarkable difference is the arrangement of the planting elements, which as a result, makes it possible to plant potato’s in the bed with three rows of 42cm.
Contrary to the 2-row bed method, it is possible to plant more potato’s per square metre with the 3-row trailed Grimme Belt Planter GB 330. At the same time, the planting elements have retained the well-proven shape and dimension of the 2-row machines. The result is an even growth of the tubers and thus an increased quota of marketable commodities. The row width of the 3-ton capacity GB 330 Planter is 42cm. Depending on the type of potato, the centre row can be switched off, there for increasing the row distance to 84cm. The track width is fixed at 1.80m.
An important criterion for potato planting and in particular for the 3-row method is the even soil covering of the tubers. This is provided by the Flow-Board with hydraulic depth guidance that has received a DLG award. The result is a well-formed ridge across all rows. The individually driven feed belts provide for an even loading of the belts with tubers. Level sensors above the return belts sent the impulse for continued filling. The depth of the two outer furrow openers can be adjusted to achieve an optimally deep planting of the tuber in relation to the centre row, there for promoting optimum growth.
