The success of the simplicity or the simplicity of the success?
Vervaet developed the hydro trike together with and with the demand from contractors, who were experienced in handling slurry. The concept was right from day one ,and the machines conquered the market in a few years time. Now , more then 20 years later, the Hydro Trike is still the favorite machine of the contractors that own them, the drivers that operate them, and the farmers who have the machine on their fields. We proudly present: The Vervaet Hydro Trike
One time over the soil With its three wheel (trike) principle, the soil over the entire working width is equal hitted. This results in a less damaged structure and a better result.
The Vervaet Hydro Trike has since his birth in 1990 the same principle of working. The whole technique of the slurry-cycle is still today in the same way used like in 1990. Unlike many others who time after time with a 'renewal' and / or change. Vervaet believes in the principle of hydro trike and many of us which is reflected in our leadership.
The economic sustainability of the Hydro Trike is of unprecedented proportions. Maintenance costs are, by more than 20 years development, reduced to a minimum. That results in a residual value unmatched by none. The characteristics to be in economically sustainable business with your machine.
The Hydro Trike is transparant in structure. You can easily see and understand all the components and what function they have . Also inside the cab the controls speak for themselves. A new operator will get used to the Hydro Trike instantly. Behind this straight forward appearance, there is a state of the art technology. Modern Hydraulics, steered by the latest electrical CAN systems ensure high output with low fuel consumption.
The cyclone slurrycutter is positioned behind the slurrypump. This setup is chosen to reduce the resistance to in the suction side of the slurry pump. That is why the tank can be filled quickly. While emptying the tank, the slurrypump keeps running. On the headland the cutting unit switches from injecting to flushing. This concept ensures that the cutter is always cleaned during flushing. Time-consuming blockages are prevented.
When switching back to injecting, there is pressure instantly in the elements of the slurryinjector.
In one sentence: With the hydro trike, it’s all about output.
As simple as it all seems, as modern and high tech it really is. It begins with the DAF paccar engine which already produces a sturdy 465 HP at only 1400RPM. In good conditions, the maximum power is not needed so the machine can be operated at an even lower speed of 1250 RPM.
The front wheel is hydaulicly steered and driven , equipped with a disc brake. The rear axle is a combination of a mechanical transmission with 2 speeds, which is driven by an infinite adjustable hydro motor. The oil flow of the 2 pumps is divided to the front and rear wheels, so it is always running at the right speed.The amount of traction on the front or rear is easily adjusted with a button on the drive handle power is not needed so the machine can be operated at an even lower speed of 1250 RPM.
One adjustable pump drives the slurry pump. Two adjustable Sauer Danfoss pumps provide the traction drive. The fourth pump is adjustable for the cutting unit.
With the multifunctional full-color touch screen (26.5 cm), the driver has all necessary information in the main Menu within a blink of an eye.
