Concept SFTrip Strip Till

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The SFTRIP rotor strip till cultivator is designed specifically for cultivating in rows maintaining the soil structure, preventing soil erosion and protecting the seeds resulting in the best possible germination conditions.

Each segment of the rotor only works the soil interested in the seeding and rooting zone. The front subsoiler lifts and loosens the soil enhancing both the draining and water storage capacity and the powered tines create a cultivated seedbed all in one operation. Each segment is enclosed by rotating divides which cut through the ground separating the cultivated row from the non-cultivated row. The packer roller reconsolidates and compacts the soil ahead of maize, rapeseed, sunflower or sugar beet sowing.

A fixed three point linkage or an hydraulic linkage can be fitted the to SFTRIP cultivator for mounting drills or planters to make this a true one pass machine.

In one pass it is possible to cover 4 steps all concentrated on the rooting and seeding zone. This can reduce costs per hectare by up to 50% compared to conventional cultivation.

We will have a demonstration machine working this spring please give us a call if you would like to have a go
