Aug 20, 2018Dewulf launches Field Loader 240 transfer combi
Dewulf has launched what it calls a unique transfer combi, the Field Loader 240. The machine is designed to be compact and stand-alone along with combining a high cleaning capacity with ease of use and product-friendliness. It includes features such as being suitable for road transport, a four-piece discharge elevator with a wide swing radius and a built-in, quiet diesel generator.
The company said the Field Loader 240 reduces the amount of soil and waste that accompanies product loading because tipping trailers can unload the product directly into the transfer combi for cleaning before it is loaded into a truck. With this machine, Dewulf said, transport vehicles are optimally filled with net product, and the chance of price deductions when delivering potatoes from the field directly to the factory is drastically reduced.
Dewulf said the loader is a compact transfer combi suitable for road transport. The optional steered axle gives the machine an extra 20 degrees of maneuverability. It is also equipped with five hydraulic support feet, which provide stability. The integrated pivoting waste conveyor is also designed to be easily folded out to the desired position. This makes it possible to discharge sieved-out soil or waste to a central location alongside the machine.
The bunker floor and the roller unit share the design from the MH series. The opening between the rollers is also electrically adjustable and the inspection table has space for two people. The four-piece discharge elevator of the Field Loader 240 is designed to have an extremely wide pivot range of 120 degrees (60 left + 60 right) and can reach deep into a truck. If the discharge elevator is placed at too steep an angle, the entire transfer combi automatically switches off to prevent falling product. With the optional built-in diesel generator, the Field Loader 240 can be used in a variety of locations. The generator can also be detached so it can be used for other purposes. In addition, the loader can also simply be connected to main power.
