Dewulf introduces new offset harvester with bunker

-

Dewulf introduced Torro, its trailed 2-row sieving harvester with haulm conveyor, flat hedgehog units and bunker, at Potato Europe 2017.

The 2-row trailed sieving harvester with bunker is equipped with 2 sieving webs in combination with a curved haulm conveyor. Thanks to its unique curve, the falling height is continuously limited to an absolute minimum and damage to the crop is prevented.

According to a news release, the Torro is equipped with innovative features unique for its segment. For example, the patented Inclino Master technology ensures the harvesting unit continuously remains parallel to the field while the harvester is always kept horizontal. This technology increases productivity and avoids the loss of quality due to potatoes becoming damaged during harvesting.

Additionally, Torro has low requirements in regard to tractor power and can harvest with a tractor with as little as 100 hp. Thanks to the Quick Change System, the switching between the different harvesting kits only requires 15 minutes. The speed of both flat hedgehog units can be controlled from both the tractor cabin as well as from the platform. No less than seven persons can sort product on the discharge conveyor. With the loading optimization, the bunker can be expanded from 5.5 to 6 tonnes and the offset harvester is equipped with an option for unloading on the move.
