The loader wagon can carry out the operations of crop take-up, chopping, compaction and transport in one machine. That is why the loader wagon is often referred to as a two-person harvest system. Modern loader wagons are generally offered as multipurpose loader wagons so they also meet the requirements of a fully-fledged transport wagon. Because of their flexibility (loading and transport), the machine achieves optimum utilisation.
The loader wagon process guarantees the best quality forage and silage at low harvesting costs, making it the harvesting process of the future.
Increasing loading volumes, greater field to farm distances and high transport speeds call for a strong and soil conserving chassis, high quality tandem chassis and tyres with a large footprint.
High performance technology in conjunction with soil conserving tyres helps to maintain soil health and protect the sward.
Soil compaction can have a direct effect on your profits. Deep wheel marks cost up to 10 % more diesel. Damage due to compaction can result in fertiliser costs up to 20 % higher.
"The loader wagon really helps to save costs. You need much fewer personnel and the soil is less compacted because you only need one machine instead of two, three, four or even five in the field. So the loader wagon has many advantages."
