Adjustable Film Layer for Low Tunnels (Hydraulic functioning)

Cosmeco film layer for small tunnels is of great help in the protected agriculture field in particular for the forcing and semi-forcing cultivation techniques, namely those applications that – as well as protecting plants from low temperatures – speed up the harvest of a few weeks.


Our adjustable film layer is made of a simple frame, modifiable both in height and width. It’s equipped with a series of descending wheels which lead downwards and stretch the sheet to the ground, there the film is earthed up and secured by means of the two milling rotors set on both sides of the machine. The result is a low tunnel, semi-cylindrical in shape and with a maximum height of 55 cm, supported by small plastic or iron arches which are manually and pre-emptively inserted into the ground by an operator.

The fabrics used range from PVC to PE, but also EVA or TNT Agrotextile; this last one is extremely light, made for the most in polyester fibres, and this equipment can lay it down directly on the crop even with no supporting arches.

The efficiency of this hydraulic machine, combined with its simplicity, makes our film layer a successful device used in many different fields, such as: horticulture, agriculture, nursery, floriculture, and flower ornamental crops.

Technical Aspects:

  • Hydraulic functioning with cooling sytem included
  • 2nd category three-point hitch
  • Minimum centre-to-centre distance: 230 cm
  • Maximum tunnel height 55 cm (depending on the height that the tractor allows)
  • Reel width 220 cm max

Main Strenghts:

  • Thanks to the hydraulic functioning the space separating each row is reduced to the minimum
  • Suitable for any kind of soil
  • Can be used to lay the plastic film directly to the ground, as well
  • High-quality performance in open fields
  • Capable of creating tunnels of different widths and heights by account of an adjusting system
  • Working hours reduced by 1/3, therefore anticipating the harvest (when compared to a manual job)

On Demand:

Cardan shaft with safety bolt – Support for spare film reel  – Rear simulator for TNT film laying without arches – Compact crankcase for milling rotor – Rear wheel hydraulic adjustment


We also design and develop on demand solutions, in order to satisfy all of our customers’ desires and requests: widened chassis, special lead angles, extra accessories or any kind of particular equipment which are not part of the standard production line.
