Standen Engineering is delighted to announce the launch of the all new T2 Model. The T2xs sees the popular T2 2-row trailed harvester re-engineered for 2020. The overhaul has delivered a 15% increase in the separation area, new haulm roller design, new touch screen controls, a wider choice of separators, improved service access, wider choice of picking table options and 45% more machine levelling.
Following thorough consultations with customers and operators, Standen have focussed their transformation on the rear of the T2 model. This has been improved to offer increased strength with a simpler ROTO axle design as well as more separation and levelling capability. The result of these changes is an increased harvest output whilst maintaining the crop in great condition. Standen have kept the front end of the T2xs similar to the previous model in terms of digging web and shares configuration, albeit now with a wider chassis throughout the machine which further improves service access.

David Robertson of Cookston Farms has been putting the new T2xs through its paces. Cookston Farms, based in Angus, crops 195 acres of potatoes split between home seed, salads, whites and specialist varieties on a mix of medium to heavy and loamy-sand land. Of the new model David said “The new model T2xs is an outstanding and very well built harvester. Not only does it offer great driver visibility, the new control box is user-friendly with a very clear screen. Adjustment of the roller table and Omega separators from the control box is so simple. The VariSep offers another separation point and the ROTO Axle is great for opening up. Plus it is easy and quick to set up the web speeds and ram functions. In conjunction with our New Holland T7.245 it was a pleasure to be able to lift with an entirely British built system. ”
Edward Gilbert, Sales and Marketing Director of Standen Engineering said “We are delighted that the new T2xs model has been so well received in the wide variety of field trails we have run throughout the model’s development. We believe that we have made some great improvements to the already popular harvester that growers will really appreciate when in operation on farm.”
Standen are now taking orders for delivery of the new T2xs models in 2021. If any grower is interested in a demonstration then please contact Standen to arrange this via firstname.lastname@example.org.
