Dieter Leibing - farmer and mechanical engineer - converted his farm to organic agriculture five years ago. In this Video he presents the new sickle hoe he developed. He shows how the machine is constructed and how it works.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Leibing's sickle hoe, less complicated than common models
What problem does the tool address?:The common hoeing devices did not meet Dieter Leibings needs: they were too complicated for him, had too much abrasion and were too expensive for him.
What solution does the tool offer?:He developed a hoeing frame with one joint per coulter. The hoeing shares can be adjusted in working depth and inclination. The contact pressure is exerted via telescopic gas springs or as a hydraulic variant. Instead of a parallelogram with guiding rollers, a steel skid grinds over the field and thus maintains the shallow working depth of the blades. The hoe is available for front mounting.
