easier in one pass.
2 soil loosening options

You will be able to loosen soil at all working depths or even just the sub-soil, depending on the Helios model.

Many agronomic benefits
Deep restructuring
The Helios provides soil restructuring to 60 cm. It eliminates the results of extreme climate conditions as well as ground compaction resulting from grazing.

It allows air and water to circulate again to bring life back into the soil. Living soil is essential to cultivation.
Deep restructuring
Intermediate loosening
From 25 to 35 cm deep, it eliminates poor soil preparation due to the same tool being used too often at the same depth (base effect).

Plots where tubers are intensively grown can be very uneven in terms of compaction. They are made worse by areas of grubbing-up. The Helios recovers these areas.
Intermediate loosening
On the surface
At less than 25 cm of depth, the Helios prepares for root establishment.

The Michel blade performs this task without disrupting the surface and without pushing fine soil down.

On the other hand, the Cracker tine vigorously mixes the surface horizon.
Helios On the surface
Your choice...
Mono, Duo or Cracker?
Interchangeable single beam
The Helios Mono can be equipped with a rotary harrow or drill combination.

This saves you time and reduces the number of passes. This means you can perform several tasks in one operation: loosening, seedbed preparation and sowing.
Interchangeable single beam
No disturbance to the soil horizon
Even if you don’t need to combine with a seedbed preparer or a seed drill, the Helios Duo equipped with a Michel blade is the loosener you need.

It allows you to open up the sub-soil, enabling roots to find an optimal exploration area without mixing the layers.

It keeps organic matter or residues on the surface which provides good support to the soil.
No disturbance to the soil horizon
Deep loosening
The Helios Cracker is the most suitable machine for loosening throughout the entire working depth.

Surface disruption is similar to minimum-tillage, which mixes plant residues with the soil. Humification is accelerated. Your soil recaptures nitrogen without using inputs.

Cracker
Stanchion
High strength steel withstands wear and impacts. It holds all the parts together and enables the desired depth to be reached. Thanks to its curved shape, the entire working height can be broken open while limiting the descent of fine soil without disturbing the surface. It creates a ripple effect.
Stanchion
With a width of 40 mm, the stanchion will easily withstand extreme depths over the long term. Often combined with 10 ton working load safety bolts, the rolled steel Cracker tine stanchion is extremely strong.
Counter-blade
The greater the working depth, the greater the wear in the lower layers. The counter-blade protects the stanchion in the areas where it is most needed. Positioned slightly in front of the stanchion, it cuts soil and debris that may be in its way.
Deflector-cutter
It cuts into the soil and opens the tine passage. The cutter’s triangular shape makes it possible both to cut the material that the tine raises and the material it meets when it comes out of the ground.
Tip
It makes the tine penetrate and leaves behind a small draining channel. It pulls the tine down and helps it maintain its working position. Its bevel gives it an excellent penetration angle and brings stability. It is also available in carbide steel for deep work.
Tip
Equipped with a ’double angle’, it is at the same time aggressive on hard soils and economical for fuel consumption.
Spoilers
Detachable, they create good mulch to reinvigorate the soil. They can be positioned in two places on the stanchion, allowing deep or shallow work.

      Proven chassis
      Mono, Duo or Cracker - Helios chassis have been tested in different parts of the world in all types of soil and crops.

      You can stay focused on your work without worrying if your machine is strong enough.
      Proven chassis
      Spacing between tines
      The Helios chassis offers a large space between the tine rows and between the tines themselves.

      You can loosen in areas with large volumes of plant residue without any clogging. You save time.
      Spacing between tines
      Under chassis clearance
      To make passing over large plant volumes easier, the Helios high undercarriage allows you to work at different depths without experience clogging.

      You can be confident of being productive with all crop types.

      Rollers adapted to each finish
      Twin double roller
      Twin double roller
      With its wavy discs, it is drawn along its pass, slicing the surface layer and residues to create openings to improve air circulation and water flow and to break up the largest clods.

      Square bar roller
      Square bar roller
      Aggressive on plant residues, it allows you to create a uniform mulch and accelerate stubble disintegration by maintaining a good level of moisture in the soil. It is lightweight and economical.

      Double notched disc roller
      Double notched disc roller
      Available on the Helios Mono & Duo, the double notched disc roller slices, slightly levels and brings more lift to the soil. Inspired by disc line design in the Cover range, the double notched disc roller is extremely robust.

      Toothed double roller
      Toothed double roller
      Only available on the Helios Cracker, the toothed double roller breaks the clods and mixes the surface layer. Using this roller is an effective stage before preparing a seed bed. Ideal for adherent soils, the interplay of its teeth cleans the rollers.
