Dewulf introduces Torro, its new offset harvester with bunker


Dewulf introduces Torro, its long-awaited trailed 2-row sieving harvester with haulm conveyor, flat hedgehog units and bunker. The harvester is striking due to the special attention paid to the product quality of the potatoes during harvesting and the unit’s innovative features. All the machine’s specifications, including image material, have now been published by Dewulf. Torro can currently be discovered at Potato Europe 2017 and is available as of now.

Dewulf Torro pays special attention to the product quality of the potatoes during harvesting. The 2-row trailed sieving harvester with bunker is equipped with 2 sieving webs in combination with a curved haulm conveyor, which is unique on the market. Thanks to its unique curve, the falling height is continuously limited to an absolute minimum and damage to the crop is prevented.

Furthermore, the light, reliable machine is equipped with a multitude of innovative features that are unique for its segment. For example, the patented Inclino Master® technology will make its first appearance in the Torro. This system ensures that the harvesting unit continuously remains parallel to the field while the harvester is always kept horizontal. This technology increases productivity and avoids the loss of quality due to potatoes becoming damaged during harvesting.

Additionally, Torro has low requirements in regard to tractor power and can harvest with a tractor with as little as 100 hp. Thanks to the Quick Change System, the switching between the different harvesting kits only requires 15 minutes. The speed of both flat hedgehog units can be controlled from both the tractor cabin as well as from the platform, which makes work more pleasurable. Furthermore, no less than 7 persons can sort product on the discharge conveyor. Thanks to its wheel set, the Torro has the most optimal stability and ground clearance in its class. Finally, with the loading optimization, the bunker can be expanded from 5.5 to 6 tonnes and the offset harvester is equipped with an option for unloading on the move.

The debut of the Torro will be at Potato Europe 2017 (13-14/09, Emmeloord – NL). The harvester can be discovered in the course of the two days. As of now, this light offset harvester with bunker is also for sale via Dewulf and its dealers. The serial production of the Torro will begin in 2018.
