Self-propelled harvester - 2-row | VARITRON 270 Platinum

2-row, 7 t NonstopBunker, high separation, wheels, 354 HP

With the new generation of the 2-row self-propelled potato harvester VARITRON 270, GRIMME comes up to a new era in the premium range of self-propelled potato harvesters. The various options of different separators (MultiSep, Roller Separator, fine haulm elevator) and a combination of them allows to customize the machine to the varying requirements. The very agile VARITRON 270 Platinum with wheels comes with very ground protective large wheels as standard. The 7 ton bunker uses the whole time the effective capacity thanks to the rotating bunker web. Everything in view and under control is the motto of the ErgoDrive concept in the comfortable drivers cab.

Benefits

  • 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
    • 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 under all digging conditions.
    • the MultiSep performs also on cloddy, sticky soils and soils containing small stones a low-loss and effective trash separation
    • OptiBags with high resistant polyurethane in the ring elevator create an additional cleaning area and ensures gentle crop transport at the same time
    • the NonstopBunker uses the whole time the effective capacity thanks to the rotating bunker web and furthermore it is significantly more gentle than traditional systems
  • Chassis
    • ground protection via large volume wheels
  • Perfectly comfortable
    • gentle crop handling, easily with the automatic main web speed adjustment depending on the main speed
    • 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 the camera on, where a critical situation has been noticed (risk of a separator blockage e.g.), so the driver can react and prevent the blockage.
