M-arches 

Achieve the highest possible return on your asparagus

Increase the harvest performance to 30kg per hour(*)

 
Tunnel system 

'M' arches are part of foil management. 'M' arches are positioned lengthwise on both sides of the asparagus bed. The thermic foil is placed over the 'M' arches to create a tunnel. An 'M' arch is positioned every 2.5 metres, which means 2,000 'M' arches are needed for 5,000 metres of asparagus beds.

The 'M' arches' particular shape(**) supports the thermal foil without damaging it. 'M' arches are made of galvanised iron with a 7.00-mm diameter. The tunnel system with 'M' arches(*) is more wind resistant than conventional tunnel systems.

M-arches positioning machine (MBZ) 

The 'M' arches positioning machine is an optional package for the AspergeSpin A1. This optional package ensures that each 'M' arch is positioned in the correct shape, at the correct distance to the asparagus bed, the correct angle to the asparagus bed and the correct depth.

The 'M' arch positioning machine is operated by two people. Its capacity is approximately 6,000 metres of asparagus bed per day.
