EC-Weeder allows flexible adaption to soil conditions
A customisable hoeing machine from Lemken is an entry in the prestigious Henty Machine of the Year Award.
The EC-Weeder provides a choice between numerous inter-row and intra-row tool options to match local soil conditions.
The hydraulically operated parallelogram elements allow section control and flexible adaption to changing soil conditions.
The EC-Weeder can be customised with tools depending on individual needs and local conditions, while IC-Light camera control provides a steering system that is not only precise but also supports comfortable, stress-free crop care work.
Space for crop plants to grown can be created even more easily by using the IC-Light camera control specially developed by Steketee for the EC-Weeder or EC-Steer.
The three key components, that is, camera, terminal including job computer and the parallel steering frame, allow fatigue-free, precise work event at night.
The system precisely controls the steering of the hoeing machine between the rows to minimise damage to crop plants.
Data is collected not only from camera images but also by an angle sensor, speed sensor and lift sensor. This makes the steering particularly precise.
The EC-Steer parallel steering frame makes controlling the hoeing machine a breeze.
Whether you have a third-party machine or an EC-Weeder – EC-Steer allows the operator to upgrade any hoeing machine with a steering system controlled via an in-cab joystick or with the IC-Light camera control.
This is particularly advantageous if the operator wants to use hoeing machines for various row widths with a single steering system.
