When ReturnFlow is engaged from the tractor, potatoes in the harvester are returned onto the primary chain and added to the flow of potatoes being dug from the ground. This simple innovation saves farmers in fuel costs, product damage from rollback, and downtime waiting for trucks to pull in underneath the boom.
The Double L joystick controls simplify and consolidate clunky controller boxes of the past. All of the controls to your harvester fit nicely in the palm of your hand.
GALAXY CLEANING TABLE
The Galaxy cleaning table consists of a combination of 7- and 13-fingered polyurethane star rollers and counter-rotating shafts. The configuration of the table balances cleaning capacity and bruise protection to gently separate your product from foreign
“NO BRUISE” PACKAGE
Bruising happens no matter how careful you may be. However, Double L mitigates the damage caused during harvesting with C-Flex belted chain with pegs to reduce product rollback and padded transitions to gently navigate product through known trouble spots.
Potato vines can make a cumbersome mess for farmers to deal with. The optional vine chopper on Double L's harvesters shreds vines into a fine mulch that can biodegrade much faster.
