New features that add strength and functionality to Strautmann’s Super Vitesse forage wagons also make them suitable for use as trailers for maize. The modifications allow heavier, fuller loads to be transported and unloaded.
Three key changes have been made. First, to prevent forage material in fully-loaded machines from overflowing, the height of the side panels has been extended. The top front panel has also been extended with metal fingers.
Second, the side panels have been strengthened to remove the need for roof ropes; this allows filling from above by self-propelled forage harvesters.
And third, to ensure heavy loads can be discharged, higher capacity discharge floor motors have been fitted as standard. There’s also an option to upgrade to a double motor on the discharge floor.
There are two models in the Super-Vitesse range, each has a 39-knife cutting rotor on a Continuous Flow System unit, and requires a 120hp tractor. The 3102 has a capacity of 29 cubic metres and costs £64,157 +VAT, while the 3502 has a 33 cubic metre capacity and costs £66,443 +VAT (prices correct at March 2017).
