The decomposition of the biodegradable clips after 18 months under sun impact during fall enables the mechanical removal of the yarn with a rewinder, which saves a lot of time.
Two rubber belts with hydraulic gear raise the vegetation. The speed is proportionally adjusted to the driving speed. The belts flexibility allows a sparing raising so that nothing damages the vegetation.
The clipping is triggered by a button in the driver’s cabin. It is done through a two-armed stitcher. The left arm is used as a magazine. It contains 300 clips that can stitch around 10 arms. A double cylinder allows the stitcher to open whilst driving around the stakes.
The special feature is an integrated yarn-brake system coupled to an electromagnet. It is activated at the end of the row, thus tensioning the twine. After clamping the cord to the last post, it can be separated and simply knotted. The machine uses polypropylene yarn.
The machine needs at least 25 L/Min. (6,6 Gal). It will be mounted onto a Hubmast. For the operation of the shoot-binder, there is 1 single-action control device and a pressure-less return hose needed. Depending on the construction, there is 1 dw needed for the Mast, 1 dw for the lateral inclination and 1 dw for the angular adjustment.
“ECO-Roll” compresses the vegetation as the spades fitted to the roller bend and knock down the stalks, thereby producing a carpet of mulch that encourages good shaded composting. The plants then grow through and produce the next carpet of organic material. With legumes, this method stimulates the growth of the rhizobia and increases nitrogen fixing.
