The Vervaet Q series is the iconic manoeuvrable, lightweight and modular capacity harvester which keeps going where other harvesters must stop. How is this possible? Because of its low weight with only one wheel per track, resulting in even ground pressure, and its numerous cleaning systems. These features make the Q series the perfect self-propelled beet harvester for crop farmers and contract workers alike.
Vervaet has toppers to fit all your needs as well as those of your customers. You have a choice from three types, for a wide range of applications. The integral topper (IS) shreds the beet tops (leaves) and disposes of them between the rows. The flexible combi topper (CS) can deposit the beet tops either between the rows or spread them to the side, so that you can adjust disposal to the quantity of tops (and weeds) in the field.
Don't want to use scalpers/toppers and instead prefer to leave the top of the beet fully intact? Then the combi topper with double rotor (CDR) is the most logical choice. This topper has two independently driven flail shafts, with steel flails followed by rubber flails. The latter carefully clean the head of the beet.
A professional harvesting machine is nothing without a professional driver who can work comfortably for hours on end, if need be, without becoming too tired. That’s why all Vervaet self-propelled machines, including the Beet Eater EVO, are furnished with the most modern, luxurious and spacious cabs with a large area of glass. The optimum position of the cab means that the driver has an exceptional view of the topping and lifting work. The controls for the entire machine are within easy reach: the gear lever and the terminal are located in the adjustable armrest.
If you want to harvest beets, chicory or celeriac on the slopes of ditches or in hilly conditions, opt for the Q level master in the Q series for fully automatic levelling of the machine. This unique technology keeps the superstructure of the harvester level as circumstances demand, in hilly conditions, for example, but also on the (descending) slopes of ditches. The hydraulic levelling provides extra stability and the pressure on the ground is spread more evenly.
Although compact, the Q series can compete with larger ones in terms of cleaning capacity. At Vervaet, cleaning starts immediately after the lifting unit has harvested the beet, chicory or celeriac. There are two 1,450 mm harvesting turbines and, depending on your requirements, up to four cleaning turbines. The turbines are available in various versions. Other options include a single cleaning turbine and a sieve belt, two smaller and one large cleaning turbine (1.850 mm!), and three cleaning turbines with an axial roller bed with nine rollers. The rpm of the turbines can be controlled from the cab either as a whole or individually.
The Q series is so compact and manoeuvrable that it can virtually turn on its own axis. With an internal turning radius of only 1.6 m, turning on the headland was never this easy, quick and soil-friendly. The two rear wheels are mounted next to each other on a turntable. Moreover, the front wheels have a steering wheel movement of 8 degrees, which results in practical and supreme manoeuvrability. All wheels are controlled by the automatic steering controls.
The arrangement of the two rear wheels between the front wheels evenly distributes the weight across the width of the machine.
The entire Vervaet Q series has been built in view of the highest possible quality with minimum required maintenance.
