Bergmann Beet Chaser trailers are now available from CTM, the perfect match for ROPA and other leading harvesters.
The chaser has a very fast work rate, optimising beet harvester output. The high capacity, high pressure hydraulics provide efficient unloading and fast turnaround. It is gentle on the beet and has eliminated any crunching associated with tipping. This is aided by the Bergmann’s low drop point.
The operators like it, especially its high ‘far’ side extension which, together with its wide body, allowing faster off loading from the beet harveter
In cab controls on the tractor are sensibly arranged: speed and loading controls are on the driver’s right, giving a clear view of the operation, while unloading controls are on his left so he can easily monitor the discharge from the Bergmann’s left hand mounted elevator which is also fitted with a video camera.
Clamp time is reduced by heavy duty 400 bar hydraulics, the Bergmann discharging fully in around 55 seconds, up to 4 times faster than alternative methods. Furthermore, although Wrights are usually clamping beet off the field, some jobs require clamping on the headland and the Bergmann effectively avoids heavy rutting around such clamps, especially in wet weather.
Keeping mud off the highway is a major issue in this area and the Bergmann can effectively removed this risk. Moreover its manouvrability makes accessing busy roads safe.
The Bergmann body has been designed and constructed for strength and minimised beet damage. It’s fully welded with no joint in its rugged all steel bin construction. The profiled headboards minimise beet snagging while curved pusher bars on moving floor also protect the beet. The beet gets a final clean from rubber roll bars on the elevator.
As one contractor put it, “I can think of at least 3 jobs we have done this campaign that I could not have taken on without it due to field conditions. Moreover farmers are now asking specifically for us to use the Bergmann on their land, so the word is spreading.”
