Dewulf, full-liner in machines for the cultivation of potatoes and root crops, has launched a new 4-row self-propelled sieving harvester – the Enduro.
This new harvester on tyres is intended for growers and agricultural contractors that harvest potatoes. The Enduro is a powerful harvester that excels in product-friendliness, capacity and ease of use. Dewulf introduced the Enduro during a large, international, live online unveiling, and the harvester is now available.
The harvester is the result of several years of intensive development, which included input from agricultural contractors and potato growers. The Enduro is clearly the culmination of Dewulf’s more than 30 years of experience in the field of self-propelled harvesters for potatoes.
The machine on tyres is, on the one hand, equipped with new technologies in the areas of ground pressure, product cleaning and flow, and buffer capacity. On the other hand, it also contains the familiar Dewulf technology that has proven its added value time and again on many potato fields throughout the years.
Dewulf developed the Enduro with three key concepts in mind: product-friendliness, capacity and ease of use. This is clear to see in many aspects of the machine.
In terms of ground pressure, the Enduro boasts the best figures in its segment with a pressure as low as 1.5 kg/cm2 . This is achieved through a sophisticated system of weight distribution over three axles and by the optional tyres with VF technology. Dewulf calls the ensemble of technologies that result in the harvester’s low ground pressure ‘Soil-Saver’.
Because the machine’s centre of gravity is located further to the rear, the Enduro also ensures that the ridges will not be damaged by the front wheels, even in wet conditions.
Just like the Kwatro, the manufacturer’s other 4-row sieving harvester, the Enduro has no constrictions along its sieving webs. This results in optimal sieving capacity throughout the machine. A unique feature found nowhere else in the world is the driver’s ability to easily and steplessly adjust the inclination of the cleaning module between 0° and 12°, based on the cleaning need in the field. Moreover, the module with axial rollers can be bypassed at any inclination angle for greater flexibility.
The Enduro’s ring elevator uses a patented new technology. Capacity and product-friendliness were combined in this ring elevator, which was given the name ‘Fill-Tastic’. The ring elevator has a high capacity of 200 tonnes/h and achieves this at a very potato-friendly speed, which is automatically regulated via a sensor. The 2-part bunker with discharge elevator, with a practical volume of 10 tonnes, is the largest in its segment. Because the fixed bunker floor is followed by a discharge elevator with bar webs, excess soil is sieved out during unloading. The Enduro’s discharge elevator reaches over 4 full rows, so you can always easily unload into a tipper. While doing so, the tipping top ensures a product-friendly process, as the drop height of the product into the tipper is always kept to a minimum.
Dewulf is accepting orders for the Enduro via their dealer network. The manufacturer will start series production of this 4-row self-propelled sieving harvester on tyres next year.
Starting in late November the Enduro will also be available to configure in the virtual showroom that the manufacturer will place online for a limited time.
