Soil processing: the complete Forigo range

July - August - September 2018 | Back

At the EIMA Show, the spotlight is on the soil processing technologies of the Mantuan company Forigo (headquartered in Ostiglia, not far from the provincial capital). It starts with the Deeperino 300 sterilizer, a passive machine for the application of liquid fumigants. With the option to couple it with tractors with up to 120 horsepower, the sterilizer is characterized by a working depth of between a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 35 centimetres. The foldable FR120 - 400 is a highlight of the rotary harrows segment. It is an application requiring power up to 250 horsepower, and whose main strength in its versatility (it is available with a wide range of working widths and can be equipped with different types of rear rollers). The G35-10 model, on the other hand, is a stone burier in the power range from 50 to 100 horsepower. It is offered by the firm from Ostiglia with wheels and smooth free roller for work on the “proda” (the strip of land that delimits country roads or ditches).  Another standard function is the convex shaping of soil, which avoids the stagnation of water, thus creating the best conditions for the root development of plants. Among the other machines in Casalina di Deruta, it is worth mentioning the DF6 - 500 folding mechanical hoe, equipped with an innovative 6-gear transmission. Suitable for high power tractors (up to 400 horsepower), the DF6 - 500 folding mechanical hoe can be equipped with rear bonnets or with different types of rear rollers.
