Hoe making first pass down row. Note how cleanly it rolls the weeds and soil away from the vine row.
This is a new kind of implement, which is designed to eliminate the long, expensive, back-breaking job of in-the-row hand hoeing. This hoe will do as much work in an hour as several hand workers can do all day- AND DO IT BETTER.
The hoe is mounted on the right side of the tractor, using your tractor's various implement bracket mounting holes. The hoe consists of a mounting bracket and pivot block, which allows both horizontal and vertical movement of the hoe beam (the horizontal and vertical movement is controlled by hydraulic cylinders). At the end of the hoe beam is an adjustable assembly which holds the hoe blade.
As the tractor moves down the row, the blade is guided in and out between the plants manually by a single control lever . An automatic sensing arm control is also available as optional equipment. No stopping is necessary. When guided away from plants, the hoe retracts backward even though the tractor is moving forward. This permits operation with no damage to the plants. The curved blade rolls the weeds and soil out from under the plants in a continuous strip.
HYD-ROW-HOE is designed to hoe away from, or to hill up to plants. For hilling up, simply rotate the position of the blade shank and put on the hill up blade. The hilling up height can be regulated from 2" to 10". Wonderful for covering weeds and supporting young trees. Hill up to protect plants and vines from winter injury, erosion, wet feet, insects, rodents and diseases.
Hilling up operation is shown here. When hilling, simply set the blade at desired depth and angle, and drive straight down the row.
