Harvesting Technology - 2-row | SV 260

Off-set trailed, 2-row, up to 7.5 t bunker, for varying harvesting conditions

The two row trailed bunker harvester, type SV 260, is characterised by its high variability with regard to separators. The machine can be equipped with a MultiSep, a Roller Separator, a fine haulm elevator or various combinations of the three. The efficiency of these separators is particularly evident on medium to heavy soils with low sieving capacity. A machine-configuration with up to two fine haulm elevators, the SV 260 is perfectly suited for carrot harvesting. For dry haulm and light trash, a blower can also be fitted in front of the ring elevator.

Variable use

Depending on the cultivation method (rows, beds, flat beds etc.), a wide range of different vegetables such as carrots, celery or red beet can also be harvested besides to potatoes.

Best separation result

For the most difficult soil and harvesting conditions, the machine can be equipped with a Roller Separator in combination with MultiSep.

Real nonstop digging

The patented NonstopBunker with reversing bunker floor and a capacity of 5.5 t enables an unloading process without stopping harvesting and a maximum of crop protection. Compared to a conventional bunker, the digging capacity can be increased by up to 30 %.

Separator for additional haulm separation

Using up to two fine haulm elevators, the separation of trash such as haulm fine weed and loose soil can be significantly increased. These separators show their full potential especially in carrots.


  • Crop protection
    • Main webs with high-cam belt for optimum gentle crop handling
    • Reduced drop heights throughout the machine for a gentle crop transfer
    • Gentle handling of the crop at bunker emptying, crop chute available as an option for direct box filling and addtional gentle crop handling
    • Soft bunker floor, pockets in the bunker cloth ensure a very good dragging effect
    • Gentle but high capacity harvesting
  • High acreage performance and separating effect
    • Extracting roller, extracting unit, fine haulm elevator or deviner web for haulm separation
    • Versatile sieving helps: Rotary agitator and / or hydraulic rocker agitator
    • Double MultiSep separator, the “all-rounder“, even in heavy harvesting conditions
    • Roller Separator with TwinSep or with deviner web
    • Vario-RS: Using this Roller Separator with infinitely adjustment of the roller distance, it is possible to react to different crop sizes and harvesting conditions at any time, without changing rollers.
    • Blower: The airflow which is generated by the Blower, separates dry haulm and light trash from the harvest flow and conveys it to the rear and out of the machine
    • NonstopBunker: Increased performance by 20 % to 30 % due to a gentle, continuous overloading during digging process. The revolving bunker floor enables the use of the whole bunker volume
  • Chassis
    • Offset trailed machine: Tractors with wide wheels ensure an increased traction
    • Large-volume radial tyres with a size of 1000/50 R25 for ground-protective driving on the field
    • Narrow wheels of 340/85 R38 are able to minimize the risk of damaging ridges when new fields are opened to be harvested
    • The hydrostatic wheel drive with wide-angle drive shaft provides additional tractive force.
  • Perfectly comfortable
    • Digital operator terminal VC 50 incl. colour display, touch-screen function and digital machine diagnostics realize a high operator comfort
    • Transfer height up to 4.2 m
    • TerraControl: Hydraulic ridge pressure relief and independent depth control
    • TerraDisc: Digging with driven disc coulter and without diablo roller (therefore no additional soil compaction) and depth control via skids
  • Versatility
    • High number of different versions with regard to the available separators
    • Various bunker options
    • The machine can be equipped with a windrow intake for the delayed, discontinuous ("two-phases") harvesting process.
    • Depending on the cultivation method (rows, beds, flat beds etc.), a wide range of different vegetables can also be harvested besides potatoes.
