Depth of the sweep blade (1 to 3″) can be easily adjusted and maintained with heavy duty gauge wheels ( 1 gauge wheel per 2 modules). The size of the sugar beet will determine the sweep depth.
Additional Adjustments provide the angle of the sweeping motion that determines the with of sweep desired, held with set screw and bolt for secure positioning.
This quick-set module is easily adjustable. Depending on plant population, it will adjust to reduce stand from 0 – 40%. A plant population calculating card is provided for optimum settings.
