Harvesting & Technology

Non-jamming PR lifting unit with hydraulic stone protection

The PR2h lifting unit is equipped with counter-rotating oscillating shares and completely maintenance-free hydraulic stone protection. The 900 mm large depth-control wheels combined with the intelligent three-point suspension guarantee accurate depth control of the lifter. Maintenance costs are minimised with adjustable taper roller bearings in transmissions and the oscillating share drive.

Defoliator unit

PAS - leaf ejection

ROPA all-round defoliator with leaf ejection

The beet leaves are shredded and spread over the harvested area by a leaf scroll or leaf plate. A press of the button in the cabin switches the machine between topping modes. An optional leaf collection conveyor can be installed for harvesting beet leaves (biogas or dairy).

PAS - integral leaf-layer

ROPA all-round defoliator with integrated leaf storage

The beet leaves are shredded and deposited between the rows. A press of the button in the cabin switches the machine between topping modes.

PIS - ROPA integral defoliator

ROPA integral defoliator - standard model for normal harvesting conditions

Leaves from the beet crowns are mulched with robust defoliator knives and spread between the rows. Therefore, beet leaves with all their nutrients are evenly delivered to the soil -> an optimal condition for further soil cultivation as green waste transforms fast into humus.

Micro-Topper

The comb of the Micro-Topper follows each beet head, adjusting the trimming gap to the size of the head, so that the beet is cut not too much and returns maximum yield. The intensity of the cut can be easily adjusted from the cabin. You may choose between topping and "shaving off" leaves only (micro-topping).

Maximum revenue with no additional effort

Rubber-defoliator

The both fully hydraulic driven cleaning rotors can be adjusted in the rotation speed and height independently from the other – unique! Various settings can be stored and accessed on the joystick using a memory function. Each rotor shaft can be adjusted at the height independently from the other. As a result, the operator can react quickly and effectively to different requirements due to changing beet crops. Various settings can be stored and accessed on the joystick using a memory function.

PES - ROPA rubber-defoliator

Tiger 5 XL - efficiency and power

Lifting units in the PR-XL series

Significantly higher area performance with reduced fuel consumption leads to lower costs with economical and efficient sugar beet harvesting. Fewer passes and less manoeuvring also contribute to better soil protection. The option of truck loading during operation enables an area performance of up to 3 ha per hour under favourable harvest conditions.

 

Cleaning

Gentle, efficient and individually adjustable

The hydraulically tensioned sieve conveyor efficiently transports the beets to the first strainer wheel. The portal axis enable maximum throughput without slowing the beet flow or damaging the beets. The driver can steplessly adjust the sieve conveyor speed and reverse it if necessary from the cabin. The automatic beet flow monitor reliably prevent the machine from overflowing. Three sieving systems clean the beets extremely efficiently and then transport them to the next stage.

Bunker

43 m³ large beet bunker

The automatic bunker filling allows optimum traction under all harvest conditions by excellent weight distribution.

Yield indicator using ultrasound sensors

Two ultrasound sensors measure the yield, total the bunker charges, and save the result in the field database. The data export is possible via ISO-BUS.

Unloading conveyor

Extra-long unloading conveyor – faster bunker unloading

The new extremely long unloading conveyor is located between the two rear axles and can be raised further due to higher tyres. A great advantage when overloading on driving alongside trailers, as it is performed shallower. The careful rubberized fingers guarantee high feeding capacity at short unloading time, only 50 sec. with full beet bunker. It is 3-way foldable and 2 m wide for even simpler application of 10-metre-wide clamps or easy conveyor loading on trailers.
