Farm robots and farm machines: How they affect the soil’s ecosystem

Modern farm machines are becoming heavier and heavier, damaging the delicate ecosystem of the soil. We put a lot of pressure on the soil with our heavy farm machines and their enormous weight is squeezing the life out of the deeper soil layers, potentially reducing plant growth and thus crop yields across the globe.

Introducing Weed Cutting Discs

The new adjustable weed cutting discs help, while at the same time protecting the crop from being covered with soil. With our adjustable weed cutting discs, you can start weeding close to the crop at a very early stage and thereby ensure a clean field from sowing until harvest.

Thank you for helping us reach this milestone!

In 2022 we have experienced an increased interest in field robots, resulting in a growing sale of the FarmDroid FD20 robot. It has been a successful, but also busy year for us so far. But it has been worth the effort as we have recently sold our field robot number 250!

Want to help make FarmDroid better? (and receive cool merchandise)

Help us improve by taking the survey. It will only take you a few minutes and it will help us tremendously.

The purpose of the FarmDroid FD20 Field Robot Survey is to learn more about:

  • User satisfaction related to the work done by FarmDroid FD20
  • The importance of different FarmDroid FD20 functionalities
  • End-of-season evaluation

The information that we receive from the survey will be used to continue improving and developing our product. The current FarmDroid FD20 is already based on feedback from farmers, users, and their agricultural requirements, and it is our intention to keep improving the robot based on your needs.

If you enter your e-mail address and phone number, we will reward you with some of our FarmDroid merchandise.

Word from the management

The first six months of 2022 have come to an end. A period in which we thought we could leave COVID behind and go full steam ahead. Unfortunately, the events in Eastern Europe have disrupted these plans. Naturally, our thoughts go out to the people living in these areas. Despite the challenges in our supply chain, we were able to fill our production halls and are proud of the performance of our people. Besides the challenges in the supply chain, we were also confronted with huge price increases, which we had to pass on in our selling prices. Everyone has felt the effects of this.

Despite all the challenges, the backlog of our customers remains solid, which gives us confidence for the second half of 2022. As an international player, we are continuously working to expand our sales market. In the second quarter of 2022, a couple of colleagues travelled to South America after intensive preparatory research, where valuable discussions took place. These will certainly continue. We also developed promising plans for new products with our OEM accounts. We can determine that the first part of 2022 has turned out differently than expected, which has demanded a lot from our flexibility. A great challenge awaits us!

High-tech PTO Assembly line

A high-tech assembly line for front PTO systems was put into operation last year. This enables us to guarantee an even higher quality level with an increased production capacity. Workplace safety and job satisfaction are ensured by the use of a number of well thought-out ergonomic aids. By using our own solar energy and using high-quality materials, the production process is environmentally responsible and future-proof.

Zuidberg presents an innovation in PTO technology

With the RL2 transmission, Zuidberg presents an innovation in PTO technology. The transmission combines a very compact design with high-tech solutions that guarantees efficiency, low noise levels, long service life and maximum ease of use. The transferable power of the RL2 is in line with the tractor’s engine performance, which distinguishes it from other PTOs. The RL2 is available for the NewHolland T5, the CASE IH Vestrum and the Steyr Expert with original factory-fitted front linkage. The mounted PTO is fully integrated with the front linkage and the tractor.

FarmDroid Newsletter June 2022

In 2022 we have experienced an increased interest in field robots, resulting in a growing sale of the FarmDroid FD20 robot. It has been a successful, but also busy year for us so far. But it has been worth the effort as we have recently sold our field robot number 250!

We want to extend a BIG thank you to all our end-users, distributors and suppliers as they have all been a key factor in this rapid adoption of the FarmDroid technology.

FarmDroid sells robot #250 within 2 years

Worldwide demands for clean, renewable energy, rising energy prices, labor issues and an intensified focus on sustainable crops have urged farmers to consider alternative means of farming. All these factors have led to farmers becoming more aware of innovative and automated farming solutions, such as robot technology.

Wind and weather

Weather is an unpredictable factor, so it is only natural to wonder whether a solar-powered field robot can drive in cloudy and rainy weather. The simple answer to that question is yes. Even though the FarmDroid robot is powered by solar panels, it can still drive when the weather is bad. Read this article and learn more about how.

Zuidberg presents Innovation in Front PTO

With the RL2 transmission, Zuidberg presents an innovation in PTO technology. The transmission
combines a very compact design with high-tech solutions that guarantees efficiency, low noise levels,
long service life and maximum ease of use. The transferable power of the RL2 is in line with the
tractor’s engine performance, which distinguishes it from other PTOs. The RL2 is available for the
NewHolland T5, the CASE IH Vestrum and the Steyr Expert with original factory-fitted front linkage.
The mounted PTO is fully integrated with the front linkage and the tractor.

For 40 years now, Zuidberg has been focusing on product innovation of front linkage systems and
transmissions. As a result, it has always been at the forefront of technical progress within this market
segment. Zuidberg, as market leader, is taking another important step forward with the new RL2
PTO. The extremely compact design of the low-maintenance RL2 combines fully integrated functions
with a high power density.

Integrated blade clutch – The PTO has – connected to the input shaft – an integrated multi-plate
clutch with forced oil lubrication with high cooling capacity. If the PTO is not engaged, the gears
remain in rest position. The direct benefit is a fuel saving due to a low “0-load” (approx. 300W). The
robust design of the clutch guarantees the highest operational safety.

No torque peaks – The proportional valve ensures a gradual and dosed engagement of the PTO.
Torque peaks are therefore minimal, which minimises the risk of machine wear.

Maximum cooling and lubrication – The gear on the output shaft has a baffle plate. This regulates
the flow of oil in the gear area, ensuring 100% cooling and lubrication.

Oil filter – The oil filter is located at the top of the PTO and is therefore easily accessible for
inspection and replacement. All particles larger than 10 microns are filtered out. The oil throughput
guarantees optimum operation of the clutch and oil pump.

Quick and easy installation – Due to its compact design, the PTO fits directly into the factory fitted
front linkage and the tractor without any modifications. Additional adjustments are not necessary
after installation. The product validation is based on the economic lifetime of the tractor. This
ensures maximum operational safety. The PTO fits within the warranty conditions of the tractor
supplier and MOT inspection.

Technical specifications:

  • Output 1.000 tpm
  • Maximaal 123 kW transmittable power
  • Equipped with wet clutch on input shaft
  • Compact housing with cooling fins
  • High pressure oil filter
  • Oil level 1,1 l (UTTO)
  • Weight 38,5 kg
