Potato ridging ploughs with attachment for ridge forming Noctu

Potato ridging ploughs with attachment for ridge forming Noctu are designed for ridge forming on the potato plantation and vegetables planted in ridges. They can be used alone or with an attachment that profiles and compacts the ridges.

On the first beam of the frame is fixed legs with spring teeth used for loosening the soil between rows of potatoes. On the second beam coulter and bodies covering the rows of potatoes. On the back, on the connection arms there is an attachment that forms the final shape of the ridge and limits the countersinking of the teeth.

The machine can be equipped with two types of attachments: “full” with distance between rows from 62.5 cm to 75 cm or "after sprouting" with distance between rows of 75 cm.

Ridging with the “full” attachment can only take place till the potatoes sprouting, because later the elements levelling the ridge can damage the plants.

Ridging with the "after sprouting" attachment appetizer can be done to and after sprouting of potatoes. This is made possible by a screwed-on metal plate smoothing the ridge back.

The machine with elements arranged in three sections forms 2 rows (2-row version), and in five sections 4 rows (4-row version).
