Sugar Cane Harvester
Tracked harvesting machines offer advantages over wheeled variants in terms of stability, traction and soil protection, especially in difficult terrain comprising soft, wet soil such as on rice, soya and sugar cane plantations.
The sugar cane harvester drive depicted here is based on Linde Hydraulics' many years of experience in equipping construction machines. The dual circuit concept depicted sets standards for tracked machines and operates without a splitter gearbox. This special solution comprising standard components is characterised by an impressive level of durability and robustness, as well as low fuel consumption levels. It is also particularly gentle on soil — either when driving in straight lines or in curves. All this combined with outstanding ease of operation.
Controlled directional stability is just one example. The hydrostatic units can be easily integrated into the overall design of the machine and enable optimum interaction between driving speed, crop intake, shredding and transportation.
Furthermore, the hydrostatic system is always powerful enough to drive continuously through dense crops. They are also extremely rugged, allowing the machines to make it right through the harvesting season with a low amount of planned maintenance time. The result: many tonnes of crops harvested in line with specifications and using little fuel.
