Frequently asked questions

Since the spading digs 45cm deep there is no need to raise beds and one can plant straight after spading. The crumble bar prepares the topsoil for that. By walking the soil between the planted space paths and beds are created. Link SBO Spading Machine

We do recommend ripping the soil up to 60cm deep before spading to get optimum drainage. The importance of the ripping depends on the type of soil.

There is no specific standard value to determine the lifespan of a filter. Its longevity depends on various factors such as the brand of the filter, contamination during spraying (whether or not it comes into contact with the spray mist), humidity levels, the user’s lung capacity, and storage methods. A filter typically contains a certain amount of activated carbon, and once it becomes “full,” its effectiveness diminishes. The duration of this process varies depending on the factors mentioned above. Manufacturers usually recommend replacing the filter when the user begins to smell chemicals, but by that point, it may already be too late. Ideally, it would be best to conduct research to determine how long it takes for the user to detect chemical odors under your specific circumstances. Based on this information, a safe number of operating hours can be established for the replacement protocols.

When using metham sodium, a low boiling organic filter is required, so it is important that the filter has a B-factor. B2P3 is the best and most efficient. If other chemistries are also used, use a combination filter with the desired combinations.
