Dewulf to premier its first mounted 3-row belt planter at SIMA 2019

Dewulf will unveil its very first mounted 3-row belt planter at SIMA 2019 in Paris this February.

Seen for the first time will present the mounted variant of the Structural 30.  With the introduction of this machine, Dewulf will bring to the market the world’s very first mounted 3-row belt planter.

This variant combines the potato-friendliness and ease-of-use that the Structural 30 is known for with new, exceptionally precise depth control.

The recently launched RA3060 Essential and SC 300, along with several other machines, will also be on display at Dewulf’s stand in Hall 6, stand F058.

The mounted Structural 30, which plants three rows in a bed as standard, is the very first of its kind on the market. The unveiling of this planter comes little more than a year after the launch of the trailed variant in late 2017.

A unique aspect of the mounted planter is its automatic depth control via an ultrasonic sensor, which is insusceptible to track formation and is infinitely adjustable via the control terminal in the tractor cabin.

This guarantees depth control with extremely close precision, so the seed potatoes can always grow optimally. The mounted variant is also exceptionally manoeuvrable, making it ideal for planting fields with smaller headlands. Moreover, the mounted Structural 30 guarantees the same high potato-friendliness and the same ease-of-use as the trailed variant.

For example, the planter also features the ‘Wave Belt’ concept, which is unique to the Structural 30. This undulating belt bed makes planting on hilly terrain simpler and more relaxed for the driver.

Because of the unique Structural belt bed planting system, the machine also combines extreme planting precision with a high driving speed (up to 12 km/h).

Dewulf will also showing a RA3060 Essential  a self-propelled 2-row sieving harvester.   This universal standard configuration of the acclaimed R3060, based on feedback from growers, was launched at Interpom (BE) in November 2018. Standard equipment includes LED lights, 8 infrared cameras and an axial module.

The first model in the new SC cultivator series from Dewulf, the SC 300, will also be at the trade fair. The SC 300 is a rotary cultivator for attachment in front of or behind a tractor. It offers high, reliable performance, ease-of-use and excellent growing bed preparation.

The latter is made possible thanks in part to the large 650 mm rotor diameter, which is larger than that of most other cultivators in the same category and can therefore cultivate deeper.
