The most powerful spider plough - a laying plough for large dimensions

The FSP 280 FOECK Plough

The FSP 280 marks a first when it comes to laying capacity. This FOECK plough is the benchmark in the entire field (laying speed, depth, and force absorption for processing the majority of soils). Its adjustable drawbar ensures optimum force transmission from the tow cable. The FSP 280 has a double drawbar for a maximum tractive force of 360 tonnes.

  • Powerful: with 360 tonnes of tractive force with a double cable
  • Variable track width of 2.980 mm to 6.500 mm
  • Extremely agile with the smallest ploughable turning radius of 4 m
  • Versatile: for laying pipes up to 630 mm in diameter
  • Deep: laying depth up to 2.500 mm
