Nominated in the category Row crop harvesting
Grimme Roder EVO 280 is the first potato harvester on the market with the ability to set itself up automatically. Its stand-out features are the hopper holding 8 tonnes of potatoes and the telescopic axle. This extends the track width to 3.5 metres for increased stability in the field and reduces transport width to 3m for road travel. Depth control and all cleaning systems are set infinitely variably to match current conditions and are controlled via Isobus – now also automatic. The Speedtronic-Web feature controls the web speeds relative to the current forward speed and load, preventing blockages and easing operator strain.
