Equipment producer AVR launches the latest 2-row potato harvester AVR Spirit 5200, at Agritechnica, November 12-18, in Hanover, Germany.

The Spirit 5200 is the latest addition to the range and has a machine of solid construction that ensures potato-friendly harvesting, according to the producer.

The machine has been designed with export in mind, but meets all the requirements for use throughout Europe. The hydraulic level setting, automatic row tracking, and the wheel drive with reset function are all standard features.

The first sieving process is performed by a long digger web equipped with dual star-shaped agitation sprockets. The haulm web then separates the haulm from the weeds. Haulm topping has become superfluous. The 4-row haulm roller above the haulm web keeps even the last potatoes within the confines of the machine.

The upright spindle web fitted with extra haulm tines removes any haulm residue from the product flow. The haulm tines in the U-profile further improve the forward movement. The upright pintle web also has an enormous soil processing capacity.

The padded sieving web ensures a potato-friendly transfer towards the transverse pintle web equipped with haulm rollers, which guides the potatoes towards the picking table. The latter provides plenty of space for four people to perform one last inspection.

Low Pressure on the Soil, Ideal for Difficult Harvesting Conditions

Offset harvesting means that the tractor does not need to be equipped with row crop tires. The tractor can continue to run on wide tread tires. This is a great advantage when harvesting in difficult conditions, and it also helps to protect the soil. The tractor wheels do not form any clods or compact the soil during the harvesting process.

The Spirit 5200 is fitted with large 650/65R30.5 radial tires ensuring low pressure on the soil and making the machine easy to tow.
