Self-propelled harvester - 4-row | VARITRON 470 Platinum TERRA TRAC

4-row, 7 t bunker, NonstopBunker, high separation performance , rubber tracks

Self-propelled harvesters convince with a perfectly matched combination of performance, driving comfort and manoeuvrability. The resulting harvest reliability, even under the most difficult conditions, plays a decisive role in many cases. With its VARITRON 470 Platinum TERRA TRAC, GRIMME offers a powerful 4-row self-propelled harvester with rubber track, which can be equipped with a wide range of different separators. The 7 ton bunker is used the whole time with effective capacity thanks to the rotating bunker web. Using the rubber tracks, a maximum driving stability and safety is achieved, even under adverse and humid soil conditions.

Rubber tracks for protection against ground compaction

With its contact area of 1.6 m² on each side, the soil-protecting CLAAS TERRA TRAC ensures a reliable and safe harvest even in adverse and wet soil conditions. For optimum manoeuvrability of the machine, the complete rubber track chassis can be turned by +/- 15°.

For additional cleaning and sieving

OptiBag, is an elastic, high capacity elevator made of polyurethane. The volume of the deep pockets is about 20 % higher than the traditional systems, made of canvas. This ensures very high conveying capacities. The perforated deep pockets provide additional sieving of residual soil in sticky conditions. The special shape of the pockets promotes the gentle handling and transfer of the crop.

NonstopBunker

The unique and patented 7 t NonstopBunker allows a complete refilling of the bunker after unloading with maximum crop protection. The continuous, very rapid overloading enables an increase in harvest performance of up to 30% compared to harvesters with conventional standard bunkers.

Ergonomic operating concept

The unique ErgoDrive operating concept provides the basis for a convenient workplace. For satisfied work: A multi-functional joystick and keypad which is located in the ergonomic armrest, both with the possibility of individual programming of all main functions are integrated to fulfil all the requirments of the driver.

  • Digging unit
    • TerraControl: Digging depth adjustment, which ensures also in changing conditions an optimum sieving output and high gentle crop handling at the same time.
    • TerraDisc: Digging with driven disc coulter and without diablo roller (therefore no additional soil compaction) and depth control via skids.
  • High acreage performance and separating effect.
  • Unique variety of various separators, such as Double-MultiSep or Roller Separator, Vario-RS or fine haulm elevator for an optimum adaption to individual digging conditions and maximum performance of separation.
  • Continuous main web channel reduce blockages, distribution of the crop, is maintenance friendly and gives a clear view to control the digging process (only one camera per main web section is necessary).
  • Due to the external frame there is no division of the crop flow necessary in the area of the rear axle
    • With the reverse system, the intake web as well as the first and the second main web are independently reversible to minimize the risk of blockages.
    • The MultiSep performs also on cloddy, sticky soils and soils containing small stones a low-loss and effective trash separation.
    • Thanks to its patented design of bunker web, the NonstopBunker always offers a large effective capacity. Furthermore it is significantly more gentle than traditional systems.
  • Chassis
    • The steering angle at the front axle is 63°, at the rear axle up to 15°, ideal preconditions for speedy turning manoeuvres on the headlands.
  • The ground protective rubber tracks allow good harvesting also in wet fields
  • Perfectly comfortable
    • ErgoDrive operating concept with multi-functional lever (= individual programming of all main functions to the first operator level for direct access), keypad integrated into an ergonomic armrest, one touch-screen terminal CCI 100 and one touch-screen terminal CCI 50.
    • Visual Protect automatically switches to that camera, where a new adjustment was carried out or a critical situation has been noticed (risk of a separator blockage e.g.), so the driver can react and prevent further blockages.
