HAK XH-series hoeing machine
The HAK XH-series hoeing machine is a versatile machine used for mechanical weed control and ridging of cultivation on all plain ridges. The hoeing frame of the XH-series is available in the following widths: 1.75 metres, 3 metres, 4.5 metres, 6 metres and 9 metres. The frame consists of hollow beams of 100 by 100 millimetres of high-quality steel which are interdependently connected. The hinges are adjustable in order to level the machine (folding frames only). The machine can be completed by adding elements from a wide variety of hoe and ridging tools. The free space below the frame can get up to 70 centimetres, allowing the machine to be utilised for crops which have entered an advanced growth stadium. The HAK XH-series tool frame is very suitable for various types of cultivation. The following combinations which can be mounted onto the XH-series parallel linkage are:
- Hoe, ridging attachment and row cultivator (corn, cabbage, etc.)
- Hoes, ridging attachments and vibrating teeth (corn, cabbage, etc.)
- (Vibrating) hoe combination and ridger (leek, roses, etc.)
- Row cultivators and ridgers (leek)
- Torsion weeders, as an addition to the above mentioned
- Leaf protectors, as an addition to the above mentioned
XH-series vibrating hoe machine
One specific edition of our hoeing frame is the vibrating hoe machine. This machine is very suitable for corn, for example, and is mostly used on heavy soil. The duo parallel linkage is fitted with vibrating hoe combinations and row cultivators. The vibrating hoe blades are treated with tungsten in order to make it low wear. Apart from traditional weed control, this machine loosens and aerates the thick soil. HAK offers various types of steering systems and steering discs for GPS.
XH-series parallel linkage
The recently developed HAK XH-series parallel linkage is characterised by the slim design, which makes for easy manoeuvring through the crops, thus decreasing damage to the crops to an absolute minimum. The use of wide farmflex® wheels equally divides the pressure of the hoeing elements on the surface whilst keeping the tyres clean. The wheel can be fully adjusted in height and is supplied with graduation. When equipped and set, the wheel is free of aberration. The use of bearings in the hinges increases the hoeing precision. The use of bearings with oil seals results in a low-maintenance machine. The parallel linkage is fitted with just one spring to adjust the pressure, which can also be adjusted without the use of any tools. The compact element can be easily installed onto the frame on various row distances. The tool grip is fitted with a single bolt in order to quickly adjust the settings. The parallel linkage can then be fitted with various hoeing and ridging systems. Examples of hoeing systems are a single hoe, three hoes, one front hoe or vibrating hoes. Examples of ridging systems are row cultivators with ridgers and vibrating teeth with ridgers. It is also possible to apply a combination of ridging and hoeing. Depending on the desired type, ridging tools, leaf protectors, ridgers and torsion weeders can be installed. All assembled hoeing systems are independently adjustable and fully adjustable in depth by means of adjusting the wheel. In both of the tool grips, handles with a maximum size of 50 by 25 millimetres can be installed. The third added tool grip can be used to install a cross beam of 30 by 30 millimetres for installing chisels, discs or other hoeing equipment.
