Haulm toppers

LKFA haulm topper

Miedema - LKFA

 

The Miedema LKFA haulm topper prevents infection from viral diseases by haulm stripping seed potatoes. The haulm topper is also ideal for use with other kinds of plants.

The capacity of your harvester increases significantly, because topping with the LKFA simplifies the harvesting process. It has become an indispensable part of potato cultivation, and you can see the result immediately in the improved quality and storage life of the potato.

The Miedema LKFA is equipped as standard with double three-point linkages, allowing the machine to be either suspended at the front of the tractor or pulled at the rear. As a result of the shape of the frame and the specially shaped hardened flails, which follow the contours of the ridges, the haulm topper generates extra suction force which results in better flailing action. The result is a clean ridge without haulm. The Miedema haulm topper has a low net weight and requires little drive power (normally 1,000 rpm). This makes it unique in its class, and does away with the problem of rut formation from the tractor. Haulm toppers are available in 2-, 4-, 6- or 8-row versions, for 75 cm, 90 cm and 36 inch ridges. When faced with large quantities of foliage, a haulm topper with belt discharge is a well-advised choice. This solution is used, in particular, in the starch-potato growing area or in combination with direct harvesting.
