The world's first Steep Slope Harvester CH 500
Innovation in Viticulture – The first harvester worldwide impresses our clients around the globe.
The harvester can reap in slopes of up to 75% and as the harvesting head is attached to the crawler only needs a single lane is required to work in the vineyard. This allows harvesting in terraced vineyards for the first time. Through its long and wide landing gear with a 1,2 m2 contact area the weight is well spread. Thus the ground pressure is lower than the one of a standard tractor. The machine is secured by a winch with 1.500 kg pulling force which is regulated electronically. On his way back up the driver opens the harvesting head and drives along the row.
The machine is equipped with a modern digital control which ensures a consistent harvesting quality. The System includes programs for different grape varieties, a billing system for the contractors as well as a washing system. The settings can be adjusted individually.
Witness the world's first steep slope harvester in action.
Superior harvesting quality.
The harvesting results impress our clients worldwide.
The perfect harvesting quality is no coincidence. Our harvester’s digital control ensures a consistent quality and has multiple programs for different grape varieties. A well developed belt guide avoids squeezing of the grapes while the triple leaf-separation sorts out unwanted residues. And for those worried about losses – our harvester comes with intelligent air jets as well as collecting pockets the catch your valuable harvest.
Even more great stuff.
