Norfolk potato and veg machinery specialist CTM Root Crop Systems and German manufacturer WM Kartoffeltechnik have launched a range of vegetable harvesters with quick-change lifting units.

Vegetable growers can now use the same harvester for potatoes, carrots, onions and other vegetables with a simple change that takes just 15 minutes.

The well-proven WM Kartoffeltechnik lifting system uses hydro-mechanical depth control. The cleaning area provides more than 10sq m of effective cleaning with webs and pimple belts or rollers.

The variable bypass conveyor adjusts from 0.5 to 2.11sq m. The 1,120mm wide elevator extends to more than 4m of reach and is designed for gentle handling of delicate produce.

There is a choice of 5t holding hopper with soft-loading elevator and direct-loading designs.
