The Atom-Jet research and development team has been developing power hiller tines over the past two years as a result of grower interest in hiller tines with higher wearability and extended use.
Atom-Jet, which has been in the seeding opener business for over 20 years, was the first company to institute the use of carbide on seeding tools. Since then, the company has continually invested in the development of carbide composition makeup and brazing technology. According to Cotton, they are excited to bring this technology and knowledge to the potato industry.
The patent-pending tines have been developed for popular brands such as Struik and Baselier, and Atom-Jet continues to work with producers for the development of tines specific to their own brands of power hillers.
