Potato planters


When planting potatoes, the main advantage of a trailed machine besides the weight distribution is the fact that the user can also combine the machine with tilling equipment, such as the specially designed AVR GE-Force C ridge cultivator, the basic AVR GE-Force and with other brands.

Your tractor also needs less lifting power!


UH 3744: Large capacity planting

The UH 3744 is a four-row trailed planter. With its mechanical drive (using a large wheel) and the big 3,500 kg seed potato bunker capacity, this planter is a true workhorse! It is available for all inter row distances (75-90 cm). When describing the UH 3744, simplicity and capacity are keywords.

At the back, the machine is supported by two large wheels (11.2 x 28”). The planting depth can be adjusted using one central cylinder on the drawbar. By default the machine is equipped with a fixed furrow plough and discs behind the planting elements to cover the potatoes. Planting distances from 10 to 60 cm are possible (to be set manually, cf. mechanical drive).

AVR Ceres 450

The Ceres 450 is a 4-row trailed potato planter with a hopper capacity of up to 3,500 kg (4x75 cm) or 4,000 kg (4x90 cm).

Each individual potato row assembly can be disconnected manually (electrical also available as an option).

The total wheel movement from left to right is 30° (+15°, -15°). The clever mechanical design ensures that the rotation axis always remains vertical, and that the wheels constantly remain in contact with the ground.

Culti Control Option

The Culti Control is a useful option. It ensures that the GE-Force C always maintains a constant cultivation depth, enabling the user to avoid double passes. The potato planting depth is always set independently.

Straight or round-sided ridges

To obtain a good ridge, it is vital to not only select the correct ridging hood, but also to set it correctly. The 4x75 version is therefore equipped with a narrow top ridging hood with round sides or a wide top hood (wear plates with special coating made from Boron 27) with straight sides. The 4x90 version is equipped with a wide top ridging hood (also made from Boron 27 wear plates) and straight sides.

The ridging hood is operated as standard by means of an automatic pressure control. The accumulator in the hydraulic circuit ensures that the hood is always kept under constant pressure. The user can also opt for the well-known PDC system (Proportionally Distance Controlled). This system uses two ultrasound sensors to measure the amount of soil in the hood. Based upon this input, the pressure on the hood is adjusted in order to maintain even ridging.
