Beet Eater 625


The Vervaet Beet Eater 625 offers immense harvesting capacity. The well-proven and highly regarded Vervaet lifting system, combined with a massive cleaning area and 25-tonne capacity tank, provide the highest levels of output. Six wide tyres spread the machine's weight evenly over the full working width ensuring soil compaction is minimized and the field is left level, even when working in the most arduous conditions.

Toppers

The Combi 2 topper is capable of mulching beet tops between the rows for an extremely even spread and easy incorporation, but is still able to spread shredded material to the right hand side if required. Flail speeds of up to 1200rpm ensure tops are thoroughly pulverised. Scalper height and angle is adjustable from the cab.

Lifting gear

The famous Vervaet lifting unit employs rotating walking shares which move independently, with each share making a circular motion in the ground so that one of each pair of shares is in the ground at any one time. Speed is adjustable from the cab, and at 700rpm each share makes 23 lifting movements per second. Each lifting element is self-seeking to ensure very gentle and precise lifting.

Lifting depth is extremely accurately controlled by hydraulically driven steel depth wheels fitted as standard. Rubber paddles running between the shares ensure that no beet roll forward when harvesting in dry conditions.  Hydraulic row-width adjustment is also standard equipment.

Cleaning

Cleaning begins as soon as the beet leave the ground, with the first two cleaning turbines removing 50% of the soil lifted so it doesn't get a chance to stick to the beet. The 625 has a phenomenal cleaning capacity, with a total of eight turbines, which allows for fast working speeds without compromising on cleaning quality. The system is also extremely gentle on the beet and has a wide range of adjustment to suit varying conditions. Turbine speed is steplessly adjusted from the cab and can be set to automatically vary proportionally according to the machine's forward speed. Various gates and turbine types are available.
Holding tank

The ring trace runs in-line for optimised weight distribution. Tank capacity is an extremely generous 25-tonnes keeping unloading cycles to a minimum.
Engine and transmission

The Beet Eater 625 is powered by a 12.9-litre DAF Paccar MX375 engine which produces 510hp. This is mounted crossways at the rear, together with the hydraulic pumps, to give the best possible weight distribution and allow easy access for servicing. Running at just 12-1400rpm and combined with a load sensing hydraulic system it gives extremely frugal fuel consumption for cost-effective lifting.

To minimise soil damage the harvester is fitted with four 800/70 R38 tyres at the front and two 900/55 R32 tyres on a narrow rear axle which run between the front wheels to evenly spread the machine's weight over the full working width. The field surface is left level even when working in extreme conditions, easing following cultivations. When using automatic steering the four front wheels are controlled by share sensors, and the rear wheels controlled by sensors on the topper, so that the harvester is always perfectly inline with the rows.

Cab

The 617 is fitted with an extremely modern and ergonomic cab which provides exceptional visibility. A multifunctional 26.5cm touch screen computer displays important information and statistics including everything from engine speed through to harvested area and fuel consumption per hectare.
