In Spain, you can find a large offer of implements for the great diversity of crops. Many times, there are local factories which are really specialized in manufacturing tools for crops that are sown in their area... That is the reason because we write this post: one post for our friends of FERROPRO, S.L. They are in El Provencio (Cuenca) and they work to manufacture implements specially for vineyard. On other occasions we have spoken about winegrowers of these Village together with the good wine they produce.
At this time, we show you a few pictures about the proccess of manuracturing an hydraulic width adjustment chissel to be adapted to different lane sizes. Winegrowers can work with different working width (from 1.75m to 2.35m or 3.3m if it has special tine on its sides) because it is very common the vineyards have different planting framework (we are going to speak about that in a future post). It has 9 Bellota maintenance-free arms (it can be configurated with other cheaper brands) of 40x30mm (it allows the farmer to work between 10 and 25cm deep in the most demanding conditions) so whatever the weeds height, this chissel performs a perfect, clogging-free job, thanks to its clearance (height) of 65cm. This cultivator is available in 2 and 3 row configurations and its frame is of 80x80x8mm. All these features are configurable according to the needs of winegrowers... manufacturing on demand.
Frecuenly, farmers have a clear idea about their needs and they indicate FERROPRO how they have to manufacture their appropriate implement... there are no limits!!
