individual and standard

Baertschi is an experienced supplier of hoeing machines. There are two lines available: The individual Fobro hoeing machine and the standard machines. On the individual lines you will benefit from our experience in combining this with a hoeing machine specifically tailored to your needs. The introduction of the Fobro standard machines meant the availability of new attractively-priced models of hoeing machines for agricultural applications which were established using popular seed sowing systems.

  1. proven, individual and long-lasting
  2. modular design
  3. New: attractively-priced robust standard machines


FOBRO hoeing brush

The FOBRO row hoeing brush is the most important new development in mechanical weeding in the last 50 years. The proven hoeing system for vegetable farming, nursery gardens and for special agricultural applications. The tunnel protects the rotating brushes. The brushes are of wear-resistant material and are ideal for stony ground. Due to their flexibility the brushes can operate very close to the plants. This reduces the need for manual weeding and application of sprayed media to a minimum.

FOBRO Triple hoeing brush

More than 20 years ago, FOBRO developed the row hoeing brush. It has been the most important non-chemical patented development in the battle against weeds in the last 50 years. The row hoeing brush with vertically rotating nylon brushes can be used very early in the season, as soon as the crop is visible. The tunnel protects the plants against the rotating brushes. The solid fold-up frame can be folded up hydraulically in seconds from the wide operating position into the road-going travelling position; the driver need not leave the tractor seat. The row hoeing brush is modular and can be combined with a large number of extensions. The three-bed machine can be produced for attachment to the front or rear.


FOBRO coulter and star hoeing machines

The proven hoeing machine from Baertschi is designed on the modular principle. Each machine is configured individually to suit the customer’s needs. We solve virtually every problem - seriously and simply!


New: FOBRO Comber

The FOBRO Comber can be used in almost all branches of agriculture. The spring tines can be made less aggressive by altering the angle of attack using a simple control lever at each individual grassland comb (10 positions). The lateral vibration of the spring tines associated with the speed of travel ensures efficient operation.

New: FOBRO Star

The FOBRO Star can be used all year round. To ensure there are no blockages during operation, the star discs are arranged in two rows. The discs are approximately 2 cm in width. The teeth are arranged on the discs in a sickle shape. If required, a following harrow can also be mounted behind the discs.

New: FOBRO Fighter

The FOBRO Fighter is used for mechanical weed control between rows of crops. The parallelograms which are individually hung are connected onto the special tubular frame. The FOBRO Fighter is available with the optional spring tine hoe device or star-shaped hoe device.
