Mixing of crop residues

Improved rootability

No hard pan

More than 60 years of experience with spading machines is something Imants can look back on. From that experience we learned that spading is more than just turning soil. Much more even. Spading means mixing organic material with the living topsoil, it means working crop residues under and creating a seedbed, it means mixing in green manure so that it can be broken down into nutrients for the next crop. 

From that experience we have learned that spading is more than just turning soil. A lot more even. Spading, that is organic material mixing with the living topsoil, it is working crop residues under and creating a seedbed, it is creating a seedbed, it is mixing in green manures so that they can be broken down into nutrients for the next crop, it is removing disturbing layers permanently and it is soil refinement. 

In short, both on the soil and in the soil preparation you can speak of a healthy soil after treatment with Imants machines.

Imants spading machines  take care of your soil

Deep tillage is mainly used to remove soil compaction and disturbing layers. Through the rotating movement movement of the spading axle with spades, an optimal optimal mixing is achieved. The soil can also be enriched or if desired you can increase the size of the cultivation layer.

The end result? Disruptive layers are lifted, resulting in a better mixing of the nutrients through the soil and thus creating better rooting. This in turn leads in turn to better water permeability and more air in the soil. In other words, the (capillary) action of the soil is restored.

Intensive mixing or not?

Deep spading

The deep spitting machines have different working depths depending on the series. As a rule of thumb is that half of the maximum the minimum working depth.

Types of blades

To achieve the desired mixing result desired mixing results, we offer the choice of series we offer the choice of: 

  • narrow spade blades (breaking through with minimal mixing)
  • standard spade blades
  • standard spade blades in combination with mixing plates (intensive mixing)

The construction of the spading machine

The Imants deep spading machines are rotary spading machines. They work the ground by by means of a spade bracket that is attached to the spade. With the 135 series, 6 spade handles form a wreath (see image), The number of whorls on the axle varies according to the type and working width. 

The SX spading blade
suitable for all soil types except wet clay. Easy to replace.

The SM spading knife
suitable for all soil types and conditions.

All spading machines are equipped with a cam clutch on the PTO shaft. This provides protection for the driveline.

Options of the 135 series 

This is the spading machine with the greatest working depth. The 135 has a theoretical working depth of 135 cm (53 inch). But as with all spading machines also in some circumstances the working depth can be greater. 

The 135 is a trailed model. The machine is standard equipped with an oil cooler and air brakes. Also, the machine is RDWapproved. If desired, there is a TÜV approval is possible. With less deep tillage, the driving speed can be increased and thus a greater capacity can be achieved. The top-of-the-line machine is ideal for agricultural projects, the construction of orchards, breaking up disturbing layers or mixing different soil layers (shredding). 

Depending on the application, the 135 series spading machine can be equipped with mixing plates (for intensive mixing), standard spading blades or narrow spading blades (breaking up disruptive layers with minimal mixing). Furthermore, this machine is equipped with wheels to enable transport over the road
