AVR Builds New Lynx Elevator Harvester
AVR has launched the Lynx, a new two-row trailed harvester which can do both in-line and off-set harvesting and is entirely hydraulically driven.
There is a choice of three different types of cleaning module: pintle belt, pintle belt/cross roller set or pintle belt/Varioweb.
A number of intelligent technologies enable the harvesting to be done even more flexibly. The Lynx rides on wide tires, which guarantee low soil pressure and make the machine easy to pull.
The equipment is aimed at the seedling market on heavy soil, but can also be used for the combination industry – starch – firm flesh, where a top-quality harvest is imperative.
Most components can be controlled hydraulically from the tractor: steering wheels, machine level, digging unit up/down, hydraulic digging unit depth (option), (automatic) drawbar steering, Varioweb in/out, pintlebelt inclination, elevator cylinders, emptying the supply belt and elevator, inclination of the axial rollers (option).
When needed, the drawbar can easily be shifted hydraulically, creating an off set harvester. In that case, the tractor can be equipped with wide tires.
Thanks to the automatic drawbar steering (default), the steering is completely taken over.
The Lynx is constructed modularly, which means that for one frame, three types of cleaning modules can be opted for. Because of this, the machine can easily be adjusted to the applicable growing and harvesting circumstances. For heavy soils, axial rollers (in Varioweb) can be opted for. The advantage of this configuration is that for vulnerable potatoes or easily sievable soil, the axial rollers can be taken out of the product flow. If no axial rollers are needed, the cleaning module can be replaced with a rubberized rod belt.
