The Bracke M36.b is a powerful mounder that can be attached to a large base machine. Thanks to its flexibility, the M36.a can be used for both smaller and larger scarification sites.
The arms of the Bracke M36.b are articulated so that they give way to fixed obstacles. The outer arms could temporarily be pulled in to avoid obstacles. To adapt to various soil conditions, Bracke M36.b can be delivered with three- or four-pointed mattock wheels. The hydraulics are load-sensing and are connected to the prime mover. Central lubrication is standard on the Bracke M36.b.
The design of the mattock wheel combined with easily replaceable tooth plates provides very good results on the planting mounds. The design of the tooth plate allows the edge to maintain its sharpness in operation and the results on the mounds are kept optimal throughout the life of the plate.
The control system is based on a PLC platform and communicates over a CAN bus. The control system is very user-friendly. The mounder is fitted with sensors that send information to the control system about, for example, the base machine’s speed and the rate of rotation of the mattock wheels. The control system has eight programmable operating programs chosen from the controls in the cab. The display is used to make settings in the control system and read information from the scarifier. The control system keeps track of the number of mounds, for both individual sites and in total, the distance covered, and the number of hours worked.
The operator controls the Bracke M36.b from the cab. Depending on changes in the site conditions, one of the preset programs is chosen. The mattock wheels are hydraulically controlled, and their rate of rotation is geared to the machine’s speed and the chosen operating program. The control system enables the operator to set the Bracke M36.b to make mounds or scarify patches of varying lengths, depending on what the surroundings require. The arms can be controlled independently of each other so that they can be run as one or two rows when necessary.
