STANDARD ROTARY HOE 3428
The Yetter 3400/3500 Standard Rotary Hoe has rescued many crops since its introduction. It is the insurance policy that saves emerging plants as the spoon-bill wheels break open soil crust.
The Standard Rotary Hoe is used to take out weeds without the use of herbicides, aerate wet residue before planting, and help prevent blowing sand. It is designed for conventional and min-till farming operations.
Yetter Rotary Hoes are the solution for crust-busting, weed control, sand-fighting, residue management, and pre-planting preparation.
For decades, the rotary hoe has been saving emerging crops by breaking up soil crust formed by heavy rains. All our rotary hoes are equipped with a 21" diameter hoe featuring self-sharpening, spoon-bill teeth. Just one pass breaks up soil around the seed, re-energizing it to ensure emergence and eliminate the need for re-planting.
Rotary hoes can also be used to:
Reduce sand blowing
Aerate and fluff wet soils before planting
Incorporate herbicide, so it can activate and control weeds before they emerge
Eliminate young weeds in organic and conventionally tilled fields without the use of chemicals
Yetter Rotary Hoes are designed to operate at 7-10 mph. A variety of toolbar sizes are available.
Short- and long-cast arms stagger wheels 7" to facilitate residue flow
Wheels spaced on approximately 3 1/4" centers across width of machine
Spoon-bill wheel teeth are mounted on individual, spring-cushioned cast arms, allowing better soil contact with each wheel
