Grimme aims to showcase its new CleanLoader (above), the company’s recently launched field loader, and also its new multi-use and multi-crop trans-loading Crop Cart – which was originally manufactured by its sister company Spudnik in the United States – at Cereals 2017.
Based on the functionality of Grimme’s RH24-60 self-emptying receiving hopper, the CleanLoader has been designed to reduce trash content in the field. It’s fully road legal and features four large wheels on a tandem axle and it requires no external power source to operate due to an on-board 62hp, four-cylinder diesel engine. The CleanLoader can be unfolded and ready to work in 15 minutes.
The CleanLoader has an output of 120t/hr depending on soil type, crop and working conditions, which means it can load a 30t potato bulker in 15 minutes.
The Crop Cart has a 20t holding capacity, is 12m long and has a 6.5t/min unloading capacity, but it’s still able to handle crop gently and minimise soil compaction. Depending on the attachment the Crop Cart can be used to transport and trans-load most crops, including potatoes, sugar beet, grain and carrots.
The boom is designed for high-capacity unloading and is able to raise, lower and extend to adjust to every situation and need. The driver has a good view onto the unloading elevator, which is fitted to the front of the trailer.
