VARITRON 470 4-row Self-propelling Cart Harvester

For the harvest season 2020 the four-row, self-propelled potato harvesters VARITRON 470 with wheel chassis and VARITRON 470 Platinum TERRA TRAC (on rubber tracs) will be equipped with various new innovations.

 New cabin
For a quiet and comfortable workplace, a new premium comfort cabin with optimised noise insulation is now optionally available. An additional increase in comfort is achieved by the new premium driver's seat. The leather seat with extra high back, the active ventilation, seat heating and air suspension with adjustable shock absorption offer the driver a relaxed workplace. The leather seat cover allows to remove any dirt easily and quickly. Other features including a large cooling box and a radio with a hands-free kit are also part of the new cab's equipment. Windshield wipers and sun blinds on all windows ensure a pleasant view in rain and sunshine.

Fully automatic speed adjustments
Two assistance systems based on "GRIMME-Speedtronic" ensure that the harvester can always be driven in the optimum range between performance and crop protection. "Speedtronic-Web" increases throughput by an automatic adjustment of the main web speed in relation to working speed and thus improves crop protection. To avoid any blockages in the ring elevator, its conveying speed is temporarily increased by "Speedtronic-Elevator" in the case that the pressure of the hydraulic system exceeds a defined target value. The driver is relieved from manual monitoring and control jobs and can therefore fully concentrate on the entire harvesting process.

Automatic bunker chain lubrication
A bunker chain greasing system is standard from 2020 on. The greasing system ensures a longer durability of the bunker chain and increases the comfort for the user as manual greasing becomes void.
