Why the Beet Eater 625?

Maximum capacity

Some users want a bigger tank to increase capacity. The Beet Eater 625 can harvest up to 1500 meters before the tank is full (at 50 tons per hectare) You can choose to cart  the beet to the heap with the harvester itself, or with the use of tracer bins.

Excellent cleaning

The Vervaet Beet Eater 625 starts cleaning the beet as soon as they are lifted from the ground. This is because the big turbines immediately seave out more then 50% of the lifted soil. Result, the beets are not made dirty with earth. Most other systems collect the beet and soil in the centre of the machine before cleaning begins.

Whole work width covered with tires

The ground pressure is reduced by the six low-pressure tires. If necessary, the machine can drive with a lower tire pressure, which makes the structure of the precious soil is not damaged.

TOPPERCombi 2 TOPPER: For all possible circumstances

The Combi 2 topper of is something special right away and you will not find any other harvester with this type of topper.

There are two ways to defoliate: Integral - the auger outlet is closed, and the beet leaf will get pulverized., With the help of V-shaped caps inside of the topper, the leaf is put on rows between the beet. Doing so, the leaf is evenly spread over the entire area. Tractors with trailers alongside of the machine will not get covered with leaf rests.

If the integral function is selected, the speed of the flailshaft goes up automatically a chosen percentage. This percentage can be set in the computer.

Conventional with auger and leaf spreader – the auger pushes the leaves to the right side onto a fast spinning spreader. This large 'rotating disc' ensures perfect spreading of leaves over the field over a with of up to 6 meter. The leaf spreaders’ speed is adjustable, and it can be folded up from the cab.

Integral Topper: Perfect defoliation at low costs

With the integral topper the leaves are evenly distributed over the entire area. Because it is pulverized, it will be absorbed by the soil much faster

Alongside running tractors are not covered with beet leaf. Furthermore, the topper is light weight, has a compact size, and is cheaper to purchase and maintain.

Harvesting Unit

Shear lifter: independently rotating

Since many years,the harvesting unit comes with independent occelating shears. They have the unique point that they each shear individually make a circular motion in the ground. So,always one of the two shears making a lifting movement, which will gently wiggle the beet out of the ground. At 700 rpm, it means 23 lifting movements per second. The speed of the shears ,again , can be set from the cab. Each element follows its row, so the beets are always in the centre of the lifter. Through the years ,the unit has been perfected to such extend, that it absolutely requires less maintenance than any other shear systemon the market.

The occilating shears can harvest the beet shallower, without breaking the roots. Furthermore, it’s as good as impossible to block with stones, or cause problems with weeds.

Oppelwheels: a new chance for old technology

Oppelwheels technique, metal lifting wheels positioned in a V- shape, have been around for years. In some circumstances this type of lifting deliver better work than the well-known lifting shears. For example: root crops with a longer root than the beet, such as chicory, can be better lifted by the oppelwheels technology.

At the narrowest end of the wheel set, the root is being pulled straight up out of the ground without breaking the root. The oppelwheels follow the rows individually, as well as the lifting shears, so the beets are always in the center of the lifting element.

Thet speed of the oppelwheels is linked to the driving speed so you always get the same harvest motion. This ensures that you can harvest faster than with harvesting shears.

Steering

The Vervaet Beet Eater 625 features 6-wheel steering.

This ensures that Vervaet Beet Eater 625 is extremely agile and manouvrable with a very short turning circle of only 8.5 m.

The rear wheels are running off-set between the front wheels. This creates a perfect weight distribution over the whole work width. The field remains perfectly flat. When in auto-steering mode, the sensor for the front wheels is controlled by the lifting elements, and the sensor for the rear wheels is controlled by the feeler on the topper,that senses the leaf of the beet. This way the machine always runs straight on the rows.

Cleaning

The Vervaet Beet Eater 625 starts cleaning the beet as soon as they are lifted from the ground. This is because the big turbines immediately seave out more then 50% of the lifted soil. Result, the beets are not made dirty with earth. Most other systems collect the beet and soil in the centre of the machine before cleaning begins.

8 turbine cleaning results in a very long and gentle cleaning procedure, The driver can simply set the machine to intensive cleaning and / or just beet friendly.

Grab-Roll Cleaning - (option)

You can also opt for Grab Rolls, they will replace the eighth cleaning turbine.

When you work in extremely heavy, sticky soil sometimes “clay balls” may occur. They will be easily removed by The grab rolls, without damaging the beet. Other matters such as grass or other weeds are effectively removed.

Unique to the rollers is that they are all 10 mounted from one side only. This eliminates the chance of weeds etc. getting stuck and blocking at the end of the roll. From the cab you can simply press a button for passive cleaning (rolls turn same direction) or intensive cleaning (rolls rotate towards each other).

The grab rolls are not recommended for stony conditions

Cabine

Comfortable working place

Take a seat in the luxury cab. You will immediately notice the space and especially the overview on the machine. With your back against the chair, you have a perfect view on the lifter and topper, while, if you look behind, the visibility on the Harvested beets in the tank is optimal. Also the discharge elevator is well visible.

Looking at the dashboard, which is integrated in the armrest, you’ll find everything on the right place. Common functions are on the multifunction control lever, or are at your fingertips. The armrest itself is adjustable in height and length.
