The intelligent depth control system developed by CMN Maskintec uses an ultrasonic sensor on each row unit to automatically maintain the pre-set working depth on its interrow hoes.

 Working electrically and hydraulically, once the desired depth has been inputted on the terminal, the system takes over, continuously adjusting the depth of individual row units.

 Available on new machines from 3.0m to 9.0m, from two to 36 rows, benefits of maintaining the correct working depth of 1-2cm include less risk of covering the plants with soil and reduced evaporation. The option is available on new machines. The company has also developed a steering frame for its hoes.
