Standen T2 Potato Harvester
Our bestselling harvester offers the very latest technology for gentle lifting and greater output. The Standen T2 Potato Harvester is a highly manoeuvrable harvester built on a heavy duty tubular chassis designed to provide strength, superb driver visibility and easy maintenance access.
The T2 RoTo Axle
The RoTo Axle allows the right hand wheel to rotate through 180 degrees, so it can be set out for main field work and moved in to follow the tractor wheels for opening up and also for transport, so there is no requirement for an escort, as the total machine width is within the UK legal limit.
"This is a brilliant machine, the RoTo Axle is superb"
Windrow Attachment Option
The T2 Potato Harvester is available with a windrow attachment option, which, when used in conjunction with the T2's RoTo Axle, eliminates the need for a trailer when opening up fields, resulting in less crop damage from trailers running on the rows.
Built for Total Control & Ease of Use
A total machine length of 10.7m means the T2 has an ample separation area yet is easily managed in the field. The T2 follows the contours of the land automatically thanks to its suspension mounted lifting frame which floats independently and Anti Dive geometry which helps the automatic depth control maintain the pre-selected share depth on all soil types. Hydraulic variable speed drives are featured throughout this harvester and speeds are adjustable from the drivers cab.
Touch screen technology comes as standard and is easy to operate; profiles can be created offering a fast selection of a range of settings to suit different crops and conditions. A series of functions can also be programmed to operate in sequence, for example at the start or at the end of the rows to be lifted. The T2 features a high capacity folding discharge elevator allowing trailers to run comfortably 2 beds away from the harvester. It also has sufficient reach to gently lower the crop into even large capacity trailers. This elevator folds easily within its 2.9m transport width. Polyurethane crop retention fingers along the discharge sides move with the web, preventing side panel friction damage to crop and large diameter drive rollers ensure smooth unloading and eliminate crop 'flicking'.
With large digging area and sieving webs, the VariSep adjustable web step and the proven OMEGA fluted roller separating system the T2 is built to perform.
VariSep Technology: maximises separation and minimises damage
The T2 provides a large digging area and sieving webs including the VariSep adjustable web step enabling the operator to easily raise or lower the sieving web (20cm) so adjusting the degree of separation at this point. Separation can be set for either maximum (high step) or minimum separation, level web (no step). This helps the operator to minimise the potential crop damage or maximise separation when required. Clever geometry in the VariSep linkage maintains a constant gap between the webs; the sieving web rotates around the circumference of the digging web rear as it is raised or lowered and the gap can be adjusted to suit the conditions. Separation is enhanced by 3 x high frequency low amplitude rotary agitators under the sieving web which are adjustable from the in cab controls. Haulm is effectively removed thanks to a full width (82mm) rubber covered haulm roller which is easily adjusted and can be reversed from the in-cab controls, spring loading is also provided for stone protection.
OMEGA: Advanced Separation Technology
The Standen T2 Potato Harvester features 2 OMEGA separating units, each unit comprises of: 3 x soft fluted rollers and 3 x clod rollers; Rubber or steel. Both OMEGA units are angle adjustable from the cab to provide varying degrees of separation. Fluted and clod roller speeds and clod roller height are adjustable from the drivers cab. Each clod roller rotates around the circumference of their adjacent fluted roller. This unique 'constant geometry' design ensures the gap doesn't change with up/down adjustment. OMEGA's wide range of adjustment enables it to be effectively used in many different soil types and conditions.
Suitable for use on salad and main crop potatoes, carrots, onions, parsnips, turnips, celeriac and more. Contact us for more information.
