Hoeing and rotary tillers | SICMA - A Company for the Industrial Production and Construction of Agricultural Machines

Hoeing and rotary tillers

SICMA's tillers are characterised by their high adaptability to all types of terrain (from the hardest, driest and stony to the softest, wettest and sandiest) and to all types of work, so that they can be adapted to any type of tractor.

The quality and perfection of our agricultural machines are represented by hidden and protected construction components, which are fundamental for the mechanics of a machine that does not give problems and that lasts over time.

The construction details make tangible the quality of production and the study behind the design of a tool designed to be solid, robust and long-lasting:

  1. high rigidity 3-point linkage;
  2. double boxed sheet metal frame, crossbar tube reinforcing the body, thick side plates and height-adjustable high-resistance steel slides that enhance the strength and robustness of the machine;
  3. transmission unit of Sicma internal construction, designed and built specifically for the needs of the machine, equipped with gears made of heat-treated steel;
  4. lateral transmission equipped with high quality bearings that ensure durability over time;
  5. gears, also of Sicma internal construction, made of heat-treated steel;
  6. rotor supports with high reliability bearings equipped with lubricating seals with GNL system;
  7. rotor with high thickness tube and anti-breakage stiffening counterflanges;
  8. hoes forged from high-strength boron steel.

The tiller, or rotary cultivator, is an agricultural machine used for tilling of the soil which is carried out to prepare the ground for sowing or to break up the soil after ploughing, or even to remove weeds from fields.

Fixed tillers
Fixed tillers, or mechanical hoes, are more widely used for preparation of the soil for sowing, for transplantation in horticulture and in floriculture, for the burying of organic fertilisers and for weed control.

The SICMA agricultural machines have a wide range of models produced with different measures to be able to be applied to tractors with small, medium or large powers.

Movable Tillers
They are produced to be used on areas of land that are impossible to reach with a fixed tiller such as in rows of vineyards, orchards and on land cultivated with vegetables. The lateral sliding system allows the movable tiller to till the soil agilely and precisely while avoiding damage to the plants.
