Northernmost Dewulf harvests at the Arctic Circle


A 22-year-old Dewulf R3000S 2-row, self-propelled potato harvester, harvests recently in the Finnish Lapland. The machine harvests 70 km south of the Arctic Circle and is the most northern Dewulf harvester in the world. Worldwide, potato cultivators choose Dewulf harvesting solutions. Throughout the years, the harvesters have spread across every continent...

Mr Juha Jankkila bought his harvester through Finnish Dewulf dealer Avagro in 2014. The R3000S harvests over 40ha every season with a low cost of ownership, which makes the harvester very economical. Jankkila harvests a landrace potato called Puikula, a variety that grows best in Finnish Lapland and has been awarded the Protected Designation of Origin certification, a guarantee of provenance and quality. It is a floury variety that has been cultivated since the 1700s and has a strong flavour due to the near-continuous summer daylight in Lapland. These potatoes have a growing season of just 80-90 days. Then, in late autumn, they must be harvested within 10-14 days, after which they are distributed throughout Finland.

Dewulf introduced the first three-wheeled sieving harvester way back in 1989, a tremendously innovative 2-row, self-propelled machine that was a true milestone. Today, 28 years later, Dewulf is proudly producing the fifth generation of this often imitated yet never equalled harvester. With over 50 machines built each year, the R3060 is a household name around the globe. Because only top quality, first-in-class components are used in Dewulf harvesters, these machines are reliable year in, year out, regardless of when they were made.
