Cut to length for maximum reach and efficiency
SSAB was able to deliver a semi-finished product measuring 300 x 300 x 10 mm and in the desired length ex works. This brings a clear cost advantage, since waste is minimized. The sub-assembly is mounted on the central tubular frame, from the axles to the attachments. With an engine power of 652 HP (480 kW), enormous forces are applied on this section of the Terra Dos 5, particularly in difficult harvesting conditions.
A square tube in 160 x 160 x 6 mm made from Strenx® structural steel was also used for the lifting unit. Other components, such as the sugar beet defoliator, the Dynacut header, the beet cutter and the rolling table for the first beet cleaning stage, were then mounted. Depending on the design, the lifting unit can harvest 6–12 rows of plants in one pass. And the more rows the harvester covers, the lower the distance traveled per hectare.
Maximum yields, minimum downtime
Sugar beet harvesting is one of the most energy- and labor-consuming processes in the agricultural industry, with much potential for crop damage. That’s why HOLMER uses the optimal technologies and techniques to lift as many sugar beets as possible while preventing losses before the beets are transferred to the harvester tank. Like the company’s previous model, the Terra Dos 5 series has been consistently developed according to the principles of modular, lightweight design. This means that operators can get spare parts or wear parts quickly after three to four harvest runs, depending on soil conditions.
