Samo takes the elbow grease out of hoeing unit adjustment


Put away your wrenches and forget about scuffing up knuckles — an award-winning system from samo Maschinenbau GmbH allows operators to adjust the processing width of hoe units from the cab, in as little as five seconds.

VarioCHOP uses a hydraulic cylinder coupled to a heavy-duty steering angle sensor at every hoeing unit, to allow for electro-hydraulic or mechanical adjustment, bringing weed control closer to row-crop plants. The adjustment can even occur while driving, and it’s possible to use in combination with a camera system.

RealAgriculture’s coverage of Agritechnica 2019 is made possible by Brevant seeds. The latest technology, locally tested. Brevant seeds. Seed. Yield. Easy.

According to samo, this technology is the solution for herbicide-free work, or savings up to 50 per cent of herbicide costs. It also saves down time, resulting in a reduction of labour costs.

It can be used on hoes with up to 99 rows, and is ideal for beet, corn, pumpkin and soy crops.
