The automatic elimination of blockages in the crop flow loader and combination wagons from CLASS, for which it won awarded a silver medal for innovation at Agritechnica.
The automatic elimination of blockages in the crop flow of loader and combination wagons from CLASS eliminates the labour intensive and time intensive interruption of the loading operation.
The new system allows for the previously manual individual steps of eliminating blockages to proceed automatically. After the overload safeguard responds, the articulated drawbar is raised automatically, the cutter unit base lowered, the pick-up drive uncoupled and the scraper bottom allowed to run forward a little.
An acoustic signal then provides the instruction to switch on the pto shaft. The trailer is subsequently restored automatically to ready-to-operate condition. The new system leads to faster and more efficient elimination of blockages.
Working safety is improved. The system from CLASS was awarded a silver medal for innovation at the Agritechnica machinery show.
