The most compact carrier on the market:
Low centre of gravity for gradients and slopes (slope clearing of 28% to 32 % depending on the model).
Easy travelling on roads and paths.
Multifunction power/weight ratio is similar to that of an in-row tractor with the added advantage of having the wheels in the middle of the row.
EASY TURN steering
Unmatched, 95° turning angle, for perfect handling in the headlands: work row after row without manoeuvring.
The rear inside wheel reverses to reduce the space needed for manoeuvring in the headland.
Continuous All-wheel-drive system TPI 2
Pellenc motor with 4 independent wheels.
Ensures smooth driving without skating in forward or reverse, or when turning in the headland.
Quick access at shoulder height, without the need for tools on any maintenance areas, lubrication, and the different filters: air, fuel, and oils (hydraulic and motor). Removable lateral scale provided.
Less lubrication needed: 1 x 20 h shaking and 1 x 200 h Selectiv’ Process and carrier.
Easy and reduced maintenance of the flexible sorter conveyor: all of the elements of the flexible sorter conveyor can be replaced and are installed on interchangeable Teflon® runners.
Semi-automatic tension without tools for the Flexible Sorter Conveyor.
Permanent self-diagnostics signalled in the cab.
Pre-diagnostics for the After Sales Service Department. The PELLENC Buscan technology ensures continuous communication between the EASY TOUCH console and the components.

Can be activated from the cab or the remote console (on the cleaning platform). Can be used to retract the housings, sorting tables, sorters and suction fans. Remote control on the harvesting head.
