Vervaet Quad - the best just got better

Vervaet Quad - the best just got better

February 8, 2021

Imagine the best and most innovative technology for manure application. Now imagine even more advanced technology being combined with the DNA of the standard in slurry injection since 1990 and brought together into the lightest and strongest self-propelled carrier chassis available with unparalleled torque.

That’s the new Vervaet Quad! With 550 hp, 21m3 tank capacity and a transmission offering higher torque than any other self-propelled machine on the market in the crucial 5 to 15 km/h speed range. Add to that the largest possible tyre choice making it suitable for every type of crop and every type of application.

Vervaet has set the standard in slurry injection since as early as 1990, and today it leads the European market for professional self-propelled application machinery. It is our ambition to maintain and expand this market leadership by offering the best solution for every farmer and every contractor who applies slurry or solid manure. To do this we offer high-quality solutions and concepts which are innovative, easy to operate and service with low maintenance costs and a high residual value. Quality has a name after all - Vervaet!

We have developed and engineered a self-propelled concept which not only brings together the best and most innovative present day technology for manure application, we managed to enrich and enhance it even further. The result is a vehicle concept able to compete in every market segment featuring a drive line with the best cooling capacity and the highest continuous torque available. That’s the new Vervaet Quad! This machine completes our range of professional manure application technology alongside the Vervaet Trike with a 16 m3 tank capacity, the Trike XL with a 21 m3 tank capacity and the Trike 5x5, the most powerful Vervaet Trike ever made.

With Vervaet DNA, naturally

Don’t be mistaken by the novelty of the Vervaet Quad, it is full of Vervaet DNA and packed with innovative reliable technology which stands out for its simplicity. User-friendly technology that is easy to comprehend and quickly understood by every type of operator. Service technicians also value our straightforward designs which allow them to service and maintain machines in a simple and very cost-effective way.

Clever driveline concept

The Vervaet Quad incorporates a clever new cooling system suitable for working in temperatures as high as 45°C with a fully loaded engine and driveline. This new concept has been developed together with our new engine partner, Volvo Penta, to ensure optimal performance under any circumstance and in all conditions. The Quad has its radiator positioned at the front of the machine keeping it well away from dust and crop residue. The 13 litre 550hp 6-cylinder Volvo Penta engine boasts a phenomenal 2650 Nm of torque at a stunningly low engine speed of just 1200rpm, making it by far the most powerful option in the market! Naturally with such a slow-running engine excellent fuel economy also comes as standard. Worldwide engine homologation backed up by a first rate global service and maintenance network are additional benefits.

Ease of service and maintenance also applies to the all-new Vervaet-made transmission. It combines the best elements of two technologies, utilising hydraulic motors to provide infinitely variable speed control to mechanical gearboxes and axles which deal with the high torque loadings associated with the demanding nature of high-output work. Separate gearboxes for each axle provide simplicity and allow the Vervaet Quad to offer constant four-wheel drive. 

With this clever driveline concept the Vervaet Quad offers higher torque than any other self-propelled machine on the market in the crucial 5 to 15 km/h speed range. Diff-locks on each axle and a centre diff-lock are standard because getting stuck in muddy conditions just isn’t part of the plan.

Slurry systems for every liking

You’ll find more familiar Vervaet DNA right behind the radiator with the proven slurry system featuring a choice of Vogelsang and Börger 9,000 l/min pumps, or the SuperLoad system with 10” piping and a 12,000 l/min or 13,500 l/min Börger pump. These pump the slurry through the tried and tested Vervaet cyclone macerator or, as an option, a Vogelsang macerator fitted before the pump.

A loading arm can make or break the efficiency of work and should be flawless and easy to use. It’s natural for operators to have their individual preferences, but we have managed to design a single loading arm suitable for every operator and situation. A loading arm that doesn’t hinder the driver’s visibility and that is fully road legal throughout Europe. Because we care for your safety and that of everyone around you in the yard and in the streets!

The Quad’s impressive traction and sheer pulling power is particularly valued whilst injecting slurry with rear-mounted cultivation tools. These are carried on a rear-linkage making it particularly quick and convenient to swap between, for example, an injector and a cultivator.

In addition to handling slurry, the Quad’s extremely versatile design gives it a truly multipurpose nature. The basic carrier vehicle can also be equipped with a solid manure spreading body, creating a first class self-propelled spreader with excellent tractive abilities which offers high capacity but a light footprint on the land. It is also anticipated that other options could also become available to equip the Quad for specialist applications including as a beet chaser.

At home in every (row) crop

We highly value traction, tenacity and soil quality. Therefore the new Quad is not only very robust, its clever engineering stands out and makes it the lightest and strongest self-propelled machine in its class. Add to that its sophisticated four-wheel steering and ultra tight turning circle which make it at equally at home in every (row) crop and on any field across the entire globe. In addition,the Quad can also be used in ‘crab steer’ mode so that each of its massive tyres runs in a different path, spreading its weight over the widest possible area to avoid soil-damage and compaction.

The vast choice of tyres available for the Quad includes 900/60 R38, 900/60 R42, 1050/50 R32, 1000/55 R32, 1250/50 R32, the newest Mitas 1000/65 R32 as well as dual row crop tyres. When fitted with nearly all tyre sizes the Quad doesn’t exceed a 3m maximum transport width.

An optimal and comfortable working environment

A professional self-propelled manure applicator is nothing without a professional operator who can work in comfort for hours on end without becoming fatigued. That’s why all Vervaet self-propelled machines are furnished with the most modern, luxurious and spacious cabs with a large glass area. All of the machine’s controls are within easy reach: the joystick and the terminal are located in the adjustable armrest.

Do you want to experience the latest development of Vervaet’s proven DNA? Then climb into the Quad’s spacious cab, look over your shoulder and discover how easy it is to keep an eye on your slurry injector or manure spreader!
