Windrowing is becoming popular in the potato industry, with trends moving towards greater throughput and all-singing, all-dancing harvesters.
Scotts has developed a new concept to satisfy this trend, the Scotts Microlift RS. Before, producers used adapted machines to lift four rows into two, but the Microlift incorporates the company’s Evolution six-row separator alongside a cross conveyer with new web design and rubber fingers. Now, producers can increase capacity without having to shell out on a bigger harvester, say the company. Prices start from £40,000.
