Horsch chaser bin can empty 25t in 90 seconds

Over harvest 2009 Horsch has been testing a pre-production monster chaser bin with a capacity of 34m³, the bin is reckoned to be capable of carting more than 25t of cereals from combine to field headland, where it then discharges its load in less than 90 seconds. Overload height is in excess of 5m, so it is comfortably able to transfer its contents into an artic bulk trailer. In addition to its size, the other main feature of note is that the bin runs on a telescopic axle, allowing it to position its wheels in a different track to those of its towing tractor; this minimises any soil compaction. Transport width is 2.95m, whereas the widest field width measures 3.55m. Add-on equipment includes a full electronic weighing system so that the operator has a complete record of what's being loaded from bin on to truck.
