Highly specialised self-propelled machines are firmly established in beet harvesting operations. Harvesting and transport are increasingly treated as separate operations and optimised in their own right. Self-propelled loading machines compact the ground less than towed transfer trailers, and have plenty of reserves in traction and power – especially on difficult terrain. Where towed trailers often exceed the permissible axle loads for road transport, self-propelled transfer machines allow beet to be loaded directly onto the transport vehicle from the field. The beet harvester machine can meanwhile take the ideal line across the field, with no accompanying tractor, and can then pile the beet at the end of the field.
Self-propelled transfer machines with Linde propel drives are characterised by their ability to go into the stack at high power and maintain precise movement at creep speed. The operating speeds of the cleaning and loading devices are precisely tuned at all times.
The design example shows a double motor supplied with oil by an HPV 135-02. Like all Linde motors, it is characterised by its precise low-speed behaviour. At creep speed, both motor units are set to the full swash angle and thus have a combined oil flow of 270 cc. At higher speeds and lower torque requirements on the road, one of the motor units can be set to 0° swash angle.
