GRIMME opens ‘test track’ for self-propelled harvesters

GRIMME announced on Friday that it has opened a ‘test track’ for self-propelled harvesters in the industrial area of Niedersachsenpark in Rieste, Germany. The goal is to use the track to put the performance of self-propelled harvesters to the test and train service technicians. It is located next to Grimme’s self-propelled harvester factory.

The track is over 800 metres long and 10 metres wide. Circular tests can be carried out in the asphalt turning area of the test track and endurance tests can be carried out on a 150 metre long section that resembles a ‘bad road’.

In addition, new products can be tested intensively even before they are launched on the market, and these results can immediately be incorporated into continuous improvements. Initial commissioning after production of Grimme’s self-propelled harvesters is also much easier and ensures the customer a trouble-free machine that is ready for immediate use, the company says in a press release..

The test track will also be used for intensive training of service technicians and customers to learn how to handle self-propelled harvesters in a safe environment.
