Haulm topper MLK
The MacLouis MLK is a reliable haulm topper for defoliating onions, silver onions, chicory, carrots and red beets. Normally, the MLK haulm topper is attached to the front of the tractor, with an onion harvester being coupled to the rear of the tractor. This means that haulm flaps and harvesting can take place in one working pass. The MLK haulm topper has horizontally rotating blades that cut the haulm off the crop. In the same pass, the knives remove the haulm to the side for optimum results. The blade cover is spring-mounted, which keeps the cover cleaner. There is a flap on the front of the hood, which makes it easy to access the blades and easy to clear any blockages. The blades are driven by means of a gearbox and V-belts.
