Vervaet Q series – lightweight, manoeuvrable and modular

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.

Manoeuvrable

Using the same, widely acclaimed principle as the Hydro Trike, the Q series is very manoeuvrable. Because of the turntable at the back of the machine, the beet harvester can turn to the next swathe without a hitch!

Soil-friendly

A lightweight beet harvester with one wheel per track. The Q stands for "Quad", as the machine has four wheels. Because the rear wheels are mounted next to each other, the machine has the same advantage as a trike: the wheels each make their own track.

Modular construction

The machine can perform the required work under all conditions and can be adjusted to any condition, as it features modular construction. Options include 3 different toppers, 2 harvesters, 2 bunker sizes, 2 engines and 4 different cleaning modules.

Toppers

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.

IS Topper

The Q-serie 625 is equipped with the IS (Integral Scalper) topper as standard. Simplicity and lightness are foremost. Special, integrated flails pulverise the leaves, which are then deposited between the rows by means of special "V" shapes in the leaf container. Any adjustable scalpers are fitted behind the defoliator.

CS Topper

Vervaet’s CS (Combi Scalper) topper is the most popular means of defoliation. It works under all conditions. Depending on the circumstances of the field and the foliage on the beet, one can opt for complete defoliation or leaf spreading.

CDR Topper

The CDR (Combi Double Rotor) topper is a combined topper with two independently driven flail shafts. The second flail shaft replaces the traditional scalpers. This topper was developed in accordance with the latest trend of defoliating and scalping. Unique to the Vervaet CDR cleaner/topper is the possibility of either integral defoliation or defoliation with leaf spreading.

Cab
What every good driver deserves

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 Q-serie, 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.

Q level-master
Hydraulic levelling

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.

Cleaning
Small harvester, great performance

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.

Q-turn
Practical and supreme manoeuvrability

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.
