Welcome to SCHMOTZER.
Welcome to the inventor of the hoe.
Once we were pioneers with our idea to use a hoe for weed control. With the invention of the field sprayer, hoeing technology was relegated to the shadows.
Today, society is more acutely aware of chemical agents, putting farmers under increasing pressure to find alternatives.
Today, more than ever, we understand the challenges faced by the sector and have perfected our products accordingly.
Whether it be for organic or conventional farming - SCHMOTZER has the right solution.
The collaboration with AMAZONE gives SCHMOTZER an additional boost, of which you ultimately benefit - new technical inspirations, surprising equipment options and even more efficient solutions - we do all of this for you.
SCHMOTZER is a small company specialised in the development of flexible individual solutions for mechanical weed control.
In addition to conventional crop management, AMAZONE also focuses on seeding and soil tillage in the agricultural sector, and offers solutions that enjoy an excellent reputation worldwide.
With the acquisition of SCHMOTZER by AMAZONE, two renowned companies have come together, recognising great potential in each other for the future due to their different specialisations. They wish to jointly meet the challenges faced by the sector in the future. The product portfolio, distribution channels and production methods will be optimised on both sides, and thus, side by side and cooperatively, ensure better conditions for the company itself and especially for the customers, who benefit from twice the experience and expertise from now on.
Get the weeds by the roots
SCHMOTZER is a specialist for mechanical weed control.
Developed through many years of experience, the company offers solutions that are suitable for the cultivation of various products such as cereals, beets, maize, vegetables, and special crops. Thanks to working widths of 0.3 to 9 metres and the front-, mid-, and rear-mounting options on the tractor, SCHMOTZER implements are capable of optimally adapting to their user's requirements. Different parallelograms guide the shares so precisely that maximum soil and crop protection is ensured.
SCHMOTZER implements contain state-of-the-art technology, which optimally support and relieve the driver during their work. In the future, new technologies and the collaboration with AMAZONE will improve the products and service, and look forward to a successful future together with the customer.
Each SCHMOTZER implement is the result of passion, many years of experience, and unsurpassable precision.
Every SCHMOTZER implement is an expression of our expertise and passion, which can be recognised down to the last detail.
Every employee is an expert in their field and part of a big family, in which everyone's skills are known and appreciated. By accompanying the product from the initial idea to its completion, SCHMOTZER employees have a strong relationship with every implement.
Using state-of-the-art tools and production resources adds to the pleasure in the creation of our implements. Not only the agricultural implements themselves, but also the machines used to produce them are always up-to-date, and therefore ensure the quality and precision that is a matter of course to us. Great commitment, profound expertise and cutting-edge production methods are our signature, which makes a hoe one of our SCHMOTZER hoes.
When we develop solutions, we do it for the users - ideas do not arise in the office, but rather on the field with our customers.
5 good reasons for mechanical weed control
History of SCHMOTZER
The SCHMOTZER hoe
Then as now - the original
Every SCHMOTZER implement is the result of lifeblood, longstanding experience, and precision. Not only have we continuously further developed the hoe - we invented it.
Based on extensive knowledge and ingenuity, our products represent unsurpassable reliability, high flexibility and maximum precision since decades.
With almost 100 years of experience, the company offers solutions that are suitable for the cultivation of diverse produce such as cereals, beets, maize, vegetables, and special crops all around the world and under all sorts of soil and climate conditions.
Each product is crafted at our factory in Bad Windsheim, where it is given a maximum of precision and material quality. Customised to meet the customer's needs, each implement is one of a kind, and we are proud of that.
Flexibility, precision and cost savings Today, a SCHMOTZER hoe is a true multi-talent. Thanks to the modular design of the assembly groups, each new implement can be configured to meet the customer's individual requirements, and thanks to the optimal illumination, our hoes work just as reliably at night as during the day.
Special maintenance-free bearings and synthetic bearings with an 8-times longer service life, as well as lighter components are just a few examples of features that incidentally ensure that consequential costs are kept to a minimum.
With us, you can expect intelligent solutions, which, among other things, can control the burying of crops or make precise depth control a piece of cake - thanks to the star parallelogram. If you want, SCHMOTZER implements can even take care of the tracking themselves.
