AVR’s newest Spirit 7200 recently joined the AVR Spirit family as a trailed, two-row offset potato harvester. New for this machine is that it can now optionally be equipped with the new ‘Clean & Go’ bunker.
The new Clean & Go bunker provides additional cleaning by means of a cleaning roller mounted between the bunker floor and the elevator. Opting for a rod web as an elevator web also brings additional sieving capacity.
Nonstop harvesting offers huge logistic advantages. With the Clean & Go bunker, AVR combines the best of 2 worlds. First of all, there is the 6.5 ton bunker, which provides enough of a buffer to continue harvesting if the trailer is not yet available, and this ensures smooth deployment in the field.
And secondly there is the possibility to unload while driving, which saves a lot of time. There is no more need to stop, raise the bunker, and maneuver around the trailer to be able to unload. As the elevator can rotate independently of the bunker floor, the bunker can be used at full capacity.
Clean & Go technical specifications
There is a capacity control function for unloading the bunker. To be able to empty the bunker as efficiently as possible, the speed of the elevator is automatically adjusted based on the product flow in the elevator. This increases ease of use when unloading while harvesting.
Thanks to the 3 articulations in the elevator, it is possible to unload deep inside the trailer. If desired, an optional shock absorber can be installed to further break the fall or for filling crates while driving.
