Three rows go self-propelled

Three rows go self-propelled

Standen Reflex has brought the Ploeger AR-3W three row self-propelled potato harvester to UK shores after success with a trailed machine of the same configuration. A complete potato system for three rows will be available for the 2010 season, designed to offer increased output and fewer wheelings. Combining front wheel steering angles of 46deg with 700mm wide steering tracks to the rear boosts the manoeuvrability of the 26 tonne beast while maintaining the compact frame and reducing ground pressure. Power is supplied by a 400hp Deutz water cooled engine, and a neat feature is the swivelling cabin, which gives the driver a clear view of the elevator in work and returns to a forward facing position for transport. The elevator also separates from the cross conveyor and folds in neatly to the frame to give the 3.4m road transport width. Separation is via the VariSep adjustable web system which enables the height of the sieving web in relation to the digging web to be set to match conditions. This is followed by a rubber covered haulm roller and the Evolution roller section which combines eight fluted and eight clod rollers, all fully adjustable. The cross conveyor can drop down to create a holding area for 1.5 tonnes of potatoes and the elevator is 1300mm wide. The first of these £415,000 self-propelled harvester has already been sold to a Cambridgeshire grower.
