A correctly adjusted defoliator is the first step towards a perfect topping and harvesting performance. The defoliator is equipped with steel flails for a longer lifetime.
With the integral defoliator the beet leafs are spread over the full width of the machine and are covered with soil. The depth wheels between the rows make sure that the defoliator always works at the correct height. These wheels also press the leaves into the soil to avoid any disturbance to the lifters and preventing the leaves from getting into the cleaning process.
The standard defoliator transports the leaves with an auger to the left-hand side of the machine. The leaf spreading disc then spreads the leaves across the field. The ideal solution for fields with large amounts of leaves and weeds.
Exxact defoliation means nourishing the soil and sophisticated preparation for harvesting
