During Potato Europe 2018, Dewulf, a Belgium- and Netherlands-based manufacturer of agricultural machines for the cultivation of potatoes and root crops, will present not only several familiar favorites but also two new machines. The first new offering is the recently announced Field Loader 240, an efficient transfer combine that excels in ease of use and capacity. The CP 22 Farmer, a light, mounted two-row cup planter for potato growers with smaller acreage will also be on display. The company will also conduct numerous harvesting and planting demonstrations during the trade fair with the Miedema Structural 4000, Kwatro, RF3060 and Torro. 

The following Dewulf machines will be on hand for inspection in the field or at the company’s stand at Potato Europe 2018:

Field Loader 240 (NEW)

The Field Loader 240 is the ideal solution for those who want to clean product efficiently in the field. This compact, stand-alone transfer combi combines a high cleaning capacity with ease of use and product-friendliness. With the Field Loader 240, growers drastically reduce the amount of soil and waste when transferring in the field. Aspects that make Dewulf's handy transfer combi a true stand out: suitable for road transport; a four-piece discharge elevator with an extremely wide swing radius; an inspection table and a built-in, super-silent diesel generator.

The bunker floor and the roller unit of the Field Loader 240, familiar from the renowned MH receiving hoppers, ensure good product flow and provide the necessary cleaning. The 10cleaning rollers provide a large cleaning capacity. Moreover, the integrated, widely pivoting waste conveyor is easy to fold out to the desired position. This makes it possible to discharge sieved-out soil or waste to a central location alongside the machine. The machine also has a wide, four-piece, product-friendly discharge elevator with an extremely wide pivot range of 120 degrees (60 left + 60 right) and a long reach for filling the truck.

CP 22 Farmer (NEW)

The new CP 22 Farmer, a mounted two-row cup planter, is a lighter, less expensive machine than the current CP 22. Yet this planter nevertheless offers exceptional durability, because it is built on the same strong chassis as the CP 22. The new CP 22 Farmer is mainly intended for smaller row distances (24 to 30 inches).

The CP 22 Farmer offers top class in a compact size. This CP is the best choice for professional potato growers with small or specialised acreage who want to plant with exceptional reliability and precision. One of the cornerstones of its precision is the unique Miedema planting element found in each CP. Despite its small size, the mounted two-row planter has a 550 kilogram bunker. Moreover, the CP 22 Farmer only requires a light tractor, which also means less ground pressure during planting. The machine is very open and accessible, and is therefore very easy to maintain.

Several of familiar favorites

Dewulf’s range of planting and storing technology will represented at the fair by a trailed Miedema Structural 4000, a Structural 30 and an MB 33. The Miedema Structural 4000 is a highly regarded mounted or trailed four-row belt planter that combines extreme planting precision, a high driving speed (up to 11 km/h) and potato-friendliness. The Structural 30 is a trailed three-row belt planter that plants three rows in a bed as standard. The innovative technology built into this machine helps prevent potatoes from rolling on the belt bed and guarantees a high level of potato-friendliness. The MB 33 is a box filler with a capacity of 40 to 60 boxes per hour. The MB 33 fills boxes homogeneously and partially in layers by means of a built-in product sensor. The homogeneous filling of the boxes ensures even ventilation in the box, which ensures good potato quality.

As for harvesters, this year Dewulf will bring the Torro, the RF3060 and the Kwatro. The Torro is the manufacturer's latest sieving harvester, and at Potato Europe it will give its first public field demo. It is a light, trailed two-row sieving harvester with special attention for potato-friendliness as well as product quality. The Torro is unique due to its curved, exceptionally potato-friendly haulm conveyor and the Inclino Master technology. This system ensures that the harvesting unit remains continuously parallel to the field while the harvester is kept horizontal, which boosts profitability and prevents damage. Another special feature is that sieving web 1 is hydraulically driven, so the speed is 100 percenet variable. The Kwatro is a self-propelled four-row sieving harvester and has been king of the field since its launch in 2010. The harvester has an 11-tonne bunker and the lowest ground pressure on the market. The RF3060 is a self-propelled two-row sieving harvester and a familiar face. The RF model of this harvester is equipped with Flexyclean, a variable bypass system that allows you to have 0 to 100 potatoes of harvested potatoes pass over the axial rollers. That way you always attain the desired product cleaning to accommodate the conditions.

The CP 22 Farmer, the Structural 30 and the MB 33 will all be on display at the Dewulf stand at Potato Europe. Visitors are welcome to see how impressively the manufacturer's other mentioned machines perform during the scheduled demos at Potato Europe 2018.
