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.
Subloosener subsoiler deep restructuring Gregoire Besson
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

All-terrain safety systems
Chassis that go places
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.

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.

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.

Sub loosener Toothed double roller machinery
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.
