Schuitemaker has launched a new version of its Rapide forage wagon with a 33cu m capacity. Based on the same running gear and lifting kit as the larger 135 model, it has a smaller capacity body and reduced total weight.
The Dutch firm says that the new model is specifically developed for the steeper conditions that are familiar across parts of the UK and Ireland. The lower capacity also makes it less power hungry with the firm quoting 130-140hp as sufficient.
Costing approximately €50,000 (£34,000), the unit has a 1.8m pickup and chopper offering a standard 40mm chop length.
