Second-generation Grimme potato harvester sets the standard

Related imageGrimme launched its 4-row self-propelled Varitron potato harvester in 2011 and now a second-generation machine with 435hp, rubber tracks and a 7-tonne non-stop bunker as standard. The family-owned company manufactures in a purpose-built factory in Rieste, Germany. The Varitron 470 Platinum Terra Trac meets the latest Tier 4 Final emissions levels and is available with a row width of 750 or 900mm. A high priority in the new model was to improve the driver comfort, achieved via the new ErgoDrive operating concept to allow intuitive control and easy access to all functions. The operator can save individual and field-specific settings that can also be stored and retrieved for future use. 

Up to 12 LED headlights provide exceptional lighting, and a coming-home function allows the driver to leave the machine safely. Besides a fine haulm elevator, Grimme offers a roller separator or MultiSep and is the only manufacturer offering a VarioRS, a double MultiSep or the combination of a roller separator and VarioRS or MultiSep systems.
